A couple days ago at Evo 2015, Radiant Entertainment revealed a teaser for a brand-new Western-developed fighting game: Rising Thunder. What they didn't reveal, though, was the involvement of Seth Killian, longtime Street Fighter commentator and former community manager at Capcom.
Earlier this month, Polygon met up with Killian and spent some hands-on time with Rising Thunder. Above, watch some gameplay captured from our first few matches in the game as we discuss what sets Rising Thunder apart, how they're approaching free-to-play and the game's uniquely minimal controls scheme.
Rising Thunder enters technical alpha on July 28. Signups for the alpha are now available on RisingThunder.com.
