We've been getting news on Rivals of Aether for over two years now. It's a 16-bit fighting game which clearly looks up to Super Smash Bros. for inspiration in the best way possible. Today, Microsoft confirmed that the game would be releasing as part of the Game Preview program this month. This should give players a chance to finally test the game out.
With the announcement comes a new trailer which gives an introduction to a few of the game's characters. They appear to be a fire lion, a beached whale, a bird, and a rock ninja turtle. We also get a look at the gameplay so you can see if it's your cup of tea. If you like Super Smash Bros., it probably is.
Rivals of Aether enters Game Preview on July 13th.
