The downloadable two-button fighter, will cost $9.99 and support Sony’s Cross-Buy feature, which means players can purchase Divekick on one PlayStation platform, then download for both.
Divekick is a send up of fighting games and their players, with a roster of 13 characters that both poke fun at and serve as homage to popular games (Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Street Fighter 4) and community figures (Seth “S-Kill” Killian, Mark “Markman” Julio, Alex Jebailey).
A Windows PC version of Divekick is also in development and up for voting at Steam Greenlight.
