Fresh off of the offer to use the Skullgirls engine by Lab Zero, the developers of the C&D’d Fighting Is Magic, Mane6, posted up an FAQ about what exactly they can do with the engine. Soon after that, the last question in the FAQ wondered about Mane6 using characters from Lauren Faust’s Milky Way and the Galaxy Girls (since now she’s involved in this new project). Of course they said no and that the characters would still be four-legged and brand new. They followed up: “Speaking of which, we think it might be cool to show you guys three of the character concepts we’ve come up with so far. We thought it would be fun to show you them in silhouette form first.” The above is what they showed.
The shapes look very Pokemon like, especially the one on the far right. The general guessing consensus is that the one on the left is a llama or an alpaca. The one on the right is some sort of deer. The middle figure looks very familiar however, having the same kinds of proportions as Faust’s pony design. But people are guessing it to be a cow. From the looks of things, the game seems to be shaping up pretty well, and we might have something close to Pokemon Type Wild with the Skullgirls Engine (if the SG crowdfund goes that far).
