And here’s some more details for the game, along with some screenshots:

Maki is a beautifully animated fighting game in the style of retro arcade gems. Use your martial arts skills to stun and defeat your opponents and kick the main villain’s ass!

You play as a sweet little fox – Maki. Don’t be fooled by his cuteness, he studied the arts of Tsume no Ken and he’s an excellent fighter! He must now rescue his friend from the hands of evil Mapu. In this task, he’ll be helped not only by the power of his fists but also by his favorite dish… Weapon. Tuna.

Maki: Paw of Fury is a game developed by Argentinian studio Bacord. It’s a project made by lovers of classic arcade games – a tribute to the good old times and queues for fighting games machines. All of this comes with a pinch of humor and beautiful visuals and music.

Make your way through five unique locations! Every level is different and each of them has an inimitable minigame. Face diverse and dangerous opponents, alone or with friends in couch co-op mode!

Practice your skills and movements in the dojo and be ready to overcome difficult bosses. This is the time… FIGHT!
