Divekick: Addition Edition coming to PS4, Xbox One

Will be free for current owners on PC, PS3, and PS Vita

Divekick: Addition Edition will bring the two-button fighting game to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One with reworked characters.

Developer Iron Galaxy Studios detailed the expanded game on a stream Wednesday, Shoryuken reports. The expansion will also be made available on PC, PS3, and PS Vita at no extra cost to current owners.

All thirteen characters are set to receive significant revisions to their move lists (which is to say, their two special moves) and their general attributes. At least one new character will join the roster, which is largely populated by fighting game community parodies and in-jokes like S-Kill and Dr. Shoals.

Iron Galaxy said it will release Divekick: Addition Edition sometime after the original version's last official tournament: SoCal Regionals 2014, which is set to begin on February 28 and end on March 2.

Divekick began as a joking reference to the overuse of air attacks in fighting games, according to creator Adam Heart. From there, it sprouted into a minimalist game of skill fit for tournament play.

"As we developed the prototype, it became clear that this game was a great tool to clearly explain how deep a single move can really be, and that the high-stress, high-tension gameplay was keeping our test groups hooked,"
