First look at all-boss fighter ‘Furi’

by Phil Wheat

French indie studio The Game Bakers have pulled back the curtain on all-boss fighter Furi, their upcoming combat game slated for release on PlayStation 4 and PC in 2016.

Furi feeds on the tension of one-on-one fights against deadly adversaries. It’s an intense, ultra-responsive hack-and-slash with a unique mix of fast-paced sword fighting and dual-stick shooting. Each of the formidable guardians – designed by Afro Samurai creator Takashi Okazaki – has a unique and surprising combat style that requires focus and skill to defeat. Defeat one boss after another to escape this surreal prison and discover what’s waiting behind the last gate.

Says Creative Director Emeric Thoa:

I have long dreamed of making a game of pure boss fights, with a focus on dueling and besting enemies who rival your own skill and strength. Furi is designed with Japanese action games in mind — games that reward skills and reflexes, with a character that reacts immediately, like Devil May Cry, any game from Platinum, or even the Super Punch Out series.

But best of all? Furi gets a HUGE boost from explosive soundtrack composed by up-and-coming electro musicians including Carpenter Brut, who created the trailer’s theme and who you may remember supplied the scores for a number of films screened at this years Frightfest. On that fact alone Furi will be a day one buy for me!
