Publisher CyberAgent has made good on its word and launched it mobile aerial combat game Kick-Flight for Android and iOS platforms to more than 130 countries, despite missing an earlier deadline.
To recap, Kick-Flight is a 4 on 4, real-time action game, with battles occurring in the air. Tap, swipe and perform actions by interacting with your device’s screen. The game was originally set for a release within 2019, which has has since been delayed.
The game will be free to play, with in-app purchases, as is customary. However unlike other gacha-centric games, “Kicker Tickets” appear not to be able to give duplicates, so you can be assured you will always get a new character! Players will lock-on to their opponents when in battle. Special skills are also usable! Dash around in the air as you avoid your opponents’ attacks. Multiplayer team-based games are not particularly uncommon, so it would be interesting to see how this stands out from the pack. Everything appears to be fast and frantic, so if you are the type to be engaged in gameplay at all times, this might just be your cup of tea. Balancing would be something to take into consideration of course, since that usually makes or breaks such titles that are supported by gacha. Keeping free-to-play users invested while encouraging them and whales to spend have always been a feat to tackle for developers, but given CyberAgent’s experience in the field, there shouldn’t be any real concerns.
To celebrate the launch of the game and it hitting 700,000 pre-registrations, the game will be giving everyonen 4,000 in-game currency and three kicker scout tickets. A bunch of items will also be given out as part of the 10-day login campaign. Players can also invite friends to battle via scanning QR code and obtain the maximum 3000 in-game currency as a reward after winning the battles.
