If you like the fighting genre, there are already some great titles you'll want to keep an eye out for. We are going to list some of our most anticipated video fighting games launching this year below. Likewise, you'll want to go back as we'll continue to update this list as exciting new video games are announced.


# 5 Tekken X Street Fighter

  • Developer: Bandai Namco Studios
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PS4, XBO
  • Output: TBA
  • Coopérative: N / A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

Tekken X Street Fighter was first announced in 2022 during San Diego Comic-Con. Overall, this is a game that would feature a crossover between two major fighting video game franchises, Tekken and Street Fighter for an ultimate 3D fighting video game title. Originally, the title was to launch for the latest generation consoles, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but it has since been ported to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Unfortunately, this game has been stuck in development hell.


We knew the game was in the works over the years, but we haven't seen any new details about the game in a little while now. In fact, earlier this year, a Bandai Namco producer, Katsuhiro Harada, said he would still like to see the game released, but wasn't sure there was a path that would allow him to get into the game. both from a logical and commercial point of view. This game may never be released, but hopefully 2022 may see the title launch in the market. If not, we may get a new update on the status of this game.



#4 One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows

  • Developer: Spike Chunsoft
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Output: TBA
  • Coopérative: N / A
  • Competitive: Yes

One Punch Man is a wacky and popular anime series. Overall, the show is based around a variety of heroes who stop enemies around the world. However, one hero stands out from the others, Saitama. With his ability to stop any enemy with a single punch, the hero is essentially unstoppable. Now, a new fighting game is being worked on by developer Spike Chunsoft.

In One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows players will find a 3V3 fighter with a variety of characters featured in the One Punch Man franchise such as Genos, Hellish Blizzard, Mumen Rider, Speed-o'-sound Sonic and of course the main hero, Saitama. It looks like players will fight the enemy with their selected heroes while they wait for Saitama to reach the area in order to deliver the final punch. Unfortunately, that's all we know about the game so far.

#3 The King of Fighters XV

  • Developer: SNK
  • Publisher: SNK
  • Platforms: TBA
  • Released: 2022
  • Cooperative: TBA
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

The King of Fighters franchise will be getting a new episode in 2022. Known as The King of Fighters XV, this episode was first teased in 2022 and since it was first announced, the release date remains at some point in 2022. Here's the thing, nothing has really been shown for this title yet. We got a simple trailer showcasing the title, but it's a long-running franchise, so if you know what to expect. This series was first released in 1994 and has gone from strength to strength over the years on multiple platforms. Overall, the game's story follows a large cast of SNK characters who will compete in a tournament such as characters from Art of Fighting and Fatal Fury. While it's safe to assume that the same style of gameplay seen in previous episodes will permeate The King of Fighter XV, we ultimately have to wait for official footage to be released online.



# 2 Metal Revolution

  • Developer: NEXT Studios
  • Publisher: NEXT Studios
  • Platforms: PC
  • Output: TBA
  • Coopérative: N / A
  • Competitive: Yes

Metal Revolution is a new IP from NEXT Studios. It is a fast-paced fighting game that relies less on complicated button combinations to keep players having fun during battles. As a result, it can be a great title for newcomers to fighting games, especially if the idea of ​​remembering all the button combinations to pull off big moves has steered them away from the genre before.

With a simplistic control system, players will battle against the AI ​​or other online players while using a cast of Android characters. Each character has their own unique style and moves, but due to the simple control system, you shouldn't just be able to figure out how to land devastating blows against your opponent or even deal damage while defending. Likewise, it looks like each character will have their own unique ultimate that players can unleash to end your opponent, much like the Fatality system in Mortal Kombat. Currently, this cyberpunk fighting game is set to launch sometime in 2022.

# 1 Granblue Fantasy Versus

  • Développeur: System Works
  • Publisher: Xseed Games
  • Platforms: PS4
  • Released: 2022
  • Coopérative: N / A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Yes

Granblue Fantasy Versus is the next installment in the Granblue Fantasy series which debuted in 2022. It is a 2.5D fighting game but Arc System Works development studio hopes the overall fighting experience of new newcomers will be easier to understand. So far we know that the development studio provides a feature called Skybound Arts. It's basically a powerful move that can be used with the press of a single button. However, after its use, there is a cooldown period. Now that cooldown can actually speed up if players land more impressive combo attacks against their opponent. While the Skybound Arts are a nice tool to have if you're new to the fighting game scene, there's a certain incentive to learn the most complicated combinations of movements. in the game.



Apart from multiplayer and traditional combat game modes, Arc System Works will include a campaign. This campaign mode is quite different as it's a beat 'em up style side-scroller. Players will face a multitude of different enemies as they progress through the level while battling bosses.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

  • Developer: CyberConnect 2
  • Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
  • Platforms: PC, PS4, XBO
  • Released: January 17, 2022
  • Coopérative: N / A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: N/A

It's a bit of a weird fighting game that we're throwing in the list. Normally, when it comes to Dragon Ball Z video game titles, there's just a heavy emphasis on 1v1 battles with story progression through different cutscenes. In Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot players will go through the game as a third-person RPG. You will be able to explore the game world and complete side quests throughout the story of the Dragon Ball Z anime series.

That said, the game will revert to the traditional fighting game style when players encounter an enemy. Now, this game will likely lack the standard battle game modes itself, as Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is meant to be a single-player game, so don't expect to play 1v1 with a buddy locally or online.

Fédération Mighty Fight

  • Developer: Komi Games Inc.
  • Publisher: Komi Games Inc.
  • Platforms: PC, XBO, PS4, NS
  • Released: 2022
  • Coopérative: N / A
  • Competitive Multiplayer: Online

Everyone loves a good party fighting game. 2022 might have a classic hit on their hands with the Mighty Fight Federation. Players will experience wacky battles in a 4-player arena. What may sway the most dedicated fighting game veterans is that there are dedicated combo move sets for each character. Apart from the brawler game style, there would be a story campaign with an arcade mode that should keep you from fighting in the game even if your friends go offline for the day.
