ClayFighter is coming back in revamped and remastered form next year

Michael McWhertor is a journalist with more than 17 years of experience covering video games, technology, movies, TV, and entertainment.

Interplay's 2D fighting game series ClayFighter is getting a new installment in 2016, the publisher announced today, a game that promises to "remaster" the clay-based fighter and introduce all-new gameplay mechanics.

The new ClayFighter will feature "remastered audio and high resolution visuals," Interplay says, and borrow from previous entries in the series. The game will feature returning fighters Bad Mr. Frosty, Blue Suede Goo, Earthworm Jim, Hoppy, Boogerman and Tiny as part of its 20-plus character roster.

Interplay says developer Drip Drop Games will introduce new fighting mechanics, including "double jumping, air dashing, counters and reversals." Each character will have unique super moves and "Claytality" finishers as well.

The new ClayFighter is bound for PC sometime next year.

Interplay published a trio of ClayFighter games for the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis and Nintendo 64. The company announced plans to bring a new game in the series to Wii and Nintendo DS in 2009, called ClayFighter: Call of Putty, which never materialized.
