Fighting EX Layer Gets Arcade Mode In Update | Gaming

When EX released at the end of June, players were surprised by the complex fighting systems and also the lack of offline content. Arika is hoping to remedy that a bit with this week’s introduction of the .

It’s a very no-frills mode – players face off against eight random opponents, then fighting Hokuto, the game’s final boss. No endings or interstitial cutscenes at all, suggesting the arcade mode was added as a response to criticism from the game’s initial release. 

The arcade mode is also kind of a letdown when considering the pedigree behind it. Arika’s Fighting Layer had an arcade mode that involved boss fights/minigames against sharks underwater, which is not something reproduced in this new game. Still, for people eager to play the game offline in a traditional structure, it’s here now.
