Besto Games revealed a release window and new details about Idol Showdown, its fighting game starring Hololive Vtubers. The title will debut in Spring 2023. It will be a free game available through Steam, according to the new trailer. It will also be entirely free and feature eight playable characters.
At the moment, only part of the Idol Showdown Hololive fighting game’s cast of playable Vtubers is available. The trailer shows off Inugami Korone, Nakiri Ayame, Shirakami Fubuki, and Tokino Sora. A-chan does make a cameo, however, as she appears for one of Sora’s attacks. The other four are still a mystery, and there are no details as to their identities yet.
Here’s the first trailer.
The Twitter announcements also revealed more details about its development. Besto worked on the title for over two years now. It will also use rollback netcode.
It isn’t uncommon for fans to make free games inspired by Hololive Vtubers. For example, one of the more notable titles is Holocure. It is a Vampire Survivors-like that involves various performers. It also gets regularly updates. For example, in February 2023 that game was updated to add more first and second generation characters from the Japanese branch of the company.
Idol Showdown will appear on PCs in Spring 2023.
