Live-Action Preview Trailer 2

While Fight Crab may look like pure crustacean chaos (and… it is), the rules are pretty straightforward — flip your opponent and keep them pinned. You’ve got all the classic fighting game moves you’d expect at your disposal, including blocks, grabs, throws and hyper mode-activated skills, with each Joy-Con controlling one of your claws. Weapons up the strategy even further — strike from a distance with polearms, use the chained sickle to limit enemies’ movement, or just strap a jet engine to your pincer and fly circles around them!

About Fight Crab

Fight Crab is an over-the-top, physics-based, 3D action battle game that combines giant crustaceans, wild weaponry, and intense claw-to-claw combat into one absurdly hilarious, must-play game.
