Well, they're gonna be having an indiegogo campaign starting next month:
Prepare to be Trampled!
Like cute animals? Like fighting? Um, WHO DOESN'T??? Come SEPT 21 my pals at Mane6 and I will be starting a crowdfund to get such a fighting game up and running!
Backstory: Mane6 is a group of talented artists and animators who put much love into a fighting game (based on some cartoon ponies you may know) that they intended to release for free on the internet. Though the were totally transparent over the two years they were creating it, alas, the IP owners asserted their trademark rights (as was their prerogative) and put an end to their efforts.
However, I LOVED it - it was beautifully animated and funny in exactly the sort of way I would want such a game to be. Character-based fighting? YES PLEASE!
We are creating a NEW game with NEW characters and all the same FUN!
I'll post updates as we have them. Please consider helping our little labor-of-love out.

Not sure I like the new title, but the two character designs they have shown off so far look pretty awesome
