Official Press Release

Crustaceans Clash Claws as “Fight Crab 2” Scuttles onto Early Access Today

TOKYO – Feb. 13, 2023 – Fight Crab 2, the physics-based shellfish brawler developed by Calappa Games and published by PLAYISM, launches on PC via Steam Early Access today.

Behold a man…riding a crab…riding a motorcycle! Fight for the title of King Crab, suiting up in impenetrable armor, mounting immortal crustaceans, and flipping opponents belly-up across a variety of destructible stages.

Scuttle and scuffle across 14 arenas including ancient villages, ledgeless airborne platforms, basketball courts, and vegetable-filled gardens. Dismount crabs to access hard-to-reach areas. Trigger special stage events on foot or haul items into grabbing range of one’s shellfish for a strategic advantage.

With 90+ weapons and spells, combine dozens of dual-carry combinations with multiple fighting stances and cast devastating spells to create a completely custom fighting style. Wield short-range knives, boxing gloves, defensive shields, long range cannons, and equip mythical relics like the Excalibur, Nimbus Clouds, Beam Sabers and more.

Equip more than 40 passive and active skills for strategic advantages such as added defense, enhanced speed, or automated weapon pick-up.

Raise a robust, rugged fighter and climb the ladder of the Crab League in Career mode. Level up attributes like weight, toughness, grip strength, and agility, and face off against both competitor crustaceans and mischievous monsters. Ready for the big leagues? Battle with others in a 1v1 in casual and ranked matches or party with up to 5 players in Room Matches and casually against friends!

While queued up for a match, play other modes such as Challenges, Training Mode, Tutorial, and Career Mode.

“For Fight Crab 2, my aim wasn’t just to add a bit of innovation to give it some freshness, but also to make it a game that players can jump on and enjoy anytime in any situation,” said Masafumi Onuki, aka Nusso, founder of Calappa Games. “I’d like to ask for everyone’s help to complete the game in its best possible form, so please share your feedback and opinions with me during Early Access!”
