Fighting is Magic: Aurora Banner

Fighting is Magic: Aurora is a fan-made 2D fighting game based on the popular cartoon series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

The game features a deep combo system, and the characters bring unique 'magic' techniques with them to the battle! Fighting game fans or not, players will enjoy exciting guilty-gear/melty blood-like style gameplay that's easy to just pick up and play in minutes, but heavily rewarding to those that dig a bit deeper.

It is also (as far as we know) the first fighter game to feature a cast composed primarily out of 4-legged characters.

Launcher Overview

Intuitive Interface

Fighting is Magic: Aurora comes with a beautifully made launcher which helps you keep the game up to date, lets you choose settings or lets you play offline or online.

Easy Updates

Every time you start up Fighting is Magic: Aurora, the launcher checks if you have the lastest version so you can get the best features.

In-depth Settings

The Fighting is Magic: Aurora launcher allows you to change if the launcher music is muted, if you receive updates for the game and lets you change game settings such as the number of rounds, the stage timer, stage and game speed.

Game Overview

Main Menu

The main menu consists of two options, "Story" mode for the single player game which will include in-depth stories at release and, "Versus" mode for local/online multiplayer* matches between friends.

*Online multiplayer is only available through the "Netplay" option on the launcher.

17 Characters to Choose From!

"Fillies and Gentlecolts... are you ready?" - Mayor C. Mare

With the initial 6 available from first release, and the remaining 11 coming after in semi-regularly scheduled DLCs, there's something to fit everyone's style. Play as 17 different characters fitting the traditional roles (Grappler, Zoner, etc.) and some that mixup the rules a bit for a newer experience.


All the characters are available from the start. No need to play through the game to make characters available.

No two characters are alike, I have made the characters play differently, each one with a different set of commands and a different play style. Choose your favourite and beat your rival!

Four Button Gameplay

Fighting is Magic: Aurora has a four button gameplay mechanic, this consists of (A) Light, (B) Medium, (C) Heavy and (D) Magic. Even though this button layout might be simplistic and/or basic, Fighting is Magic: Aurora has fast-paced action which can't be matched in any other arcade fighter.

Magic & Supers

Fighting is Magic: Aurora features a unique magic system that has never been utilised in any other arcade fighter. This magic system is used for characters special moves, these moves are limited to the number of segments there are on the magic meter. Depending on the character you're playing as, you can recharge your magic meter. Traditional supers are still present and provide characters with great finishing moves.
