Fighting EX Layer Patched to Rollback Netcode in Latest Update

During the Japan Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable on July 31, 2020, Arika revealed a new patch for Fighting EX Layer that updates the game with rollback netcode. Rollback netcode was first tested out via a special limited-time beta on PC, but has now been officially added to the game. [Thanks, Event Hubs!]

Apart from rollback netcode, Ichiro Mihara from Arika also discussed several other features that the company is currently considering. First, it plans to add a match agreement function for ranked matches sometime before the end of August. It is also thinking about adding a Wi-Fi indicator to show the signal quality. However, whether the company goes through with the latter function for Fighting EX Layer will depend on how Tekken 7‘s Wi-Fi indicator is received.

In a separate tweet, Mihara also stated that he hopes to continue with small updates like this. Arika would also like to release the game on Nintendo Switch, but the company would rather focus on adding cross-play between the different platforms first. However, due to the game’s small budget, he can’t promise anything.

Fighting EX Layer is available on PlayStation 4 and PC. Fighting EX Layer – Alpha is available to check out for free on Android and iOS. The last character to be added to the game was Area.
