Introducing Rise of Incarnates, A 2 vs. 2 Fighting Game The Tekken Staff Made For PC

By Spencer . April 22, 2014 . 7:04am


Bandai Namco Games announced a new title during Global Gamer’s Day called Rise of Incarnates. This 2 vs. 2 battle arena game is being developed by staff that worked on Tekken and Soulcalibur. Yuichiro Baba from the Gundam Vs. franchise is the executive producer of the project.


The game is set in a ruined world with New York, London, San Francisco, and Paris as battle arenas. You play as an Incarnate, a human who has demonic power. This gives you abilities to transform and fly around the game’s 3D battlefields. Rise of Incarnates will have four characters at launch – Ares, Grim Reaper (who looks like a zombie summoning mad scientist), Lilith (a speedy fighter), and Mephistopheles.


The goal with Rise of Incarnates was to make a fighting game focused on camaraderie that’s also free to play. During the presentation a representative said the game will not be "pay to play." Microtransactions will be for aesthetic items or to speed things up.


Rise of Incarnates will be released for PC on Steam in Q2 2014.

  • Unlimax

    Oh my ..that looks amazing :D
    Its like the The PC version of the arcade game Gunslinger Stratos ~

    • ishyg

      I’m intimidated by the game’s arcade machine. I’ll try this if I get the chance.

  • Crevox

    I’m interested.

  • Guest

    Looks interesting, it could be really fun!
    But I’m not particulary thrilled about the “free to play” part…

  • 罪罰

    Anarchy Reigns?

    • Guest

      that’s what i’m saying!

    • DanielGearSolid

      Got the same vibe

    • Shadowman

      Yeah it’s kinda like Anarchy Reigns with a little more awesome to it

    • fairysun

      Need to add Namco’s Bayonetta-equivalent.

      • Spirit Macardi

        If by “Bayonetta equivalent” you mean a franchise they nearly killed by refusing to advertise it, that’d certainly get me to play this. Since that character would be Klonoa.

  • Shiki

    Dr. Wily?

  • Guest

    Max Anarchy Reigns 2.0!

    someone pls bring this to consoles(PS4/XBAX JUAN)!

    • PreyMantis

      Oh, the third child was left out, again…
      Poor thing…

  • subsamuel01

    Would be better if they had actual tekken characters in it. Since it’s free to play I might as well try it out.

  • Shadowman

    Awesome! I wonder if I could use my controller?

    • jsecula

      i’m sure it will have xbox 360 controller support.

  • jsecula

    nice! color me intrigued.

  • Adrián Alucard

    Cool, a new pay to win

  • Cephrien

    Okay, I will never have a PC good enough to run this. Is this /really/ not coming to consoles??

    • Godmars

      Why wouldn’t it come to consoles if its using the Gundam vs engine? That native to the PS3.

      Doubt the PS3 could run it at that level, but the PS4 should.

  • Rafael Martines

    Anarchy Reigns + J-Stars Victory Versus = Rise of Incarnates

    • 「球磨川 禊」

      It looked more like Gundam Extreme Vs mixed w/ Anarchy Reigns

  • Godmars

    I can’t help but look at thins and think if they had put in “a bit” more work, made the environment destructible and more active, added a “few more” things, maybe risked it being an on rails shooter with a grab and throw option, this would make a decent modern version of Forgotten Worlds.

    And yes, by “a bit” and “few more” I mean more work they obviously didn’t want to put into it. That this is only Gundam vs with a major facelift.

    • Andrew Oh

      it’s not even in alpha yet dude

      • Godmars

        And when its out of alpha its just going to be Gundam versus with mechs replaced with humans.

        Not really bad in itself, but because its only what it is, its just going to be that.

        Just think that gaming right now could use something better than another f2p game.

        • Slayven19

          I kind of agree, but there is no free gundam vs MMO game for the U.S is there?

          • Godmars

            This isn’t a Gundam MMO. Its not even a Gundam game.

            There is a Gundam MMO, just as there are now a slew of Gundam games coming, but the only thing coming to the West is itself a clone title which uses the DW engine.

  • Can I just have Tekken instead, please?

  • Spirit Macardi

    Love how Namco keeps making and delivering games like this without charge, and yet their reason for closing ShiftyLook was “it didn’t make money.”

    Keep that hypocrisy rolling!

  • Mugiwara

    Is the system going to be something like Tekken Revolution?

  • eilegz

    so instead of gxvsfb we get a “WESTERN” version of the game….

  • TrevHead

    We really need more Japanese 3rd person MP games here in the west, damn shame SEGA sent Anarchy Reigns out to die, even with the crappy netcode it was a joy to play for someone like me who isn’t a lover of most western efforts at MP on console

  • Psycho_Calibur

    reminds me of the gundam vs games but without the gundams.

  • Ronldbx6

    Omg, what the hell did I just watch? What is this sorcery?

  • zed grim

    looks like scryed.
