Updated 10:07 a.m. PDT, Thurs. June 28, 2018: Fighting EX Layer appears to be having issues with release in the West. The official Fighting EX Layer Twitter account has sent out a tweet saying that the PS Store is late and an inquiry has been made about the problem.

Earlier: Arika's tenacious fighting game has arrived. Fighting EX Layer is now available for purchase on PlayStation 4.

Fighting EX Layer sees the return of many classic characters found in the Street Fighter EX series. Kairi, Shirase, Garuda, Skullomania, Darun Mister, Allen Snider, Doctrine Dark, Blair Dame, Jack, Shadowgeist, Sanane, Hayate, and Hokuto make up the game's playable roster.

This 2D fighter comes equipped with online and offline versus modes, training, Expert Mode (essentially trials), and an option to select Gougi -- a new game mechanic that sees added effects during battle when certain criteria are met.

Also featured in Fighting EX layer is a "Progressive Mode" that allows players to use simplified inputs. Those who like the traditional way of doing things, though, can opt to use Classic Mode.

As of right now, Fighting EX Layer is being released exclusively on PlayStation 4 as a digital-only title. We may be seeing a Steam release down the line, according to Arika.

There are two different purchase options for Fighting EX Layer. The Light Version will run you $39.99 and comes included with the 12 main characters, Gougi Decks #1 - #5, and two trial Gougi Decks that will rotate weekly.

The Standard Version, which costs $59.99, includes the 12 main characters as well, additional DLC character Hokuto, Gougi Decks #1 - #5, and also Gougi Decks #6 - #15. Arika notes that buying the Light Version and the DLC afterward will be a bit more expensive than simply purchasing the Standard Version.
