Square Enix's Forgotten PS1 Fighting Force Franchise Beats the Count on PS5, PS4 1

We live in an era where no franchise is truly left behind, and it’s genuinely refreshing to see so many classic series revived and re-released on modern hardware. Take Fighting Force, for example, Square Enix’s infamous 3D brawler series which spawned two titles on PS1 in 1997 and 1999 respectively. This author actually owned the sequel on the SEGA Dreamcast, while the original also launched extremely late on the Nintendo 64.

“Who doesn’t love a good brawler? In Fighting Force, you and up to three friends have a simple, four step strategy: break things, get weapons, use those weapons to pummel people, and repeat as needed. It’s straightforward streetside carnage with a 3D flair, coming home to you in 2025 care of Limited Run Games,” the summary reads.

Yes, as mentioned in the press materials above, both titles will be bundled together on PS5 and PS4 in 2025. As this is another Limited Run Games joint, you can expect the digital release to be accompanied by a physical collection, with more on that scheduled to be announced in the future.

Hands up if you owned Fighting Force on any of its original platforms? Will you be grabbing this collection when it launches next year? Let us know in the comments section below.
