New ‘Word Fighter’ Trailer Shows Off New Look, Available This Fall

Word Fighter is a cool upcoming — wait for it — word fighting game from the wonderful dudes over at Feel Every Yummy. We went hands-on with an alpha build earlier this year at GDC, and now you can see the game in its more finished glory. Feel Every Yummy has just released a new look teaser showing off its next-level Street Fighter-Meets-Scrabble action and also a few of its new-look characters. Depressingly, none of them are TIME-award winning Brad Nicholson, but what can you do, eh?

In case you missed our earlier coverage, basically the game goes like this: you spell a word from jumbled letters on a 5×5 grid over the course of three timed and turn-based rounds. Letters have point values, so the more points, the more possibility that you’ll live through the man-on-man conflict.

If you’re going to be around at PAX Prime, you’ll be able to go hands-on with the game, too before its eventual Fall 2011 release on the iPad, iPhone, and the Android operating system. If you won’t be in attendance, well, you’ll just have to wait like the rest of us.
