Several years ago, a game called Bikini Karate Babes was released. Part parody, part cheesecake panolpy, this fighter featured digitized graphics of real female performers, giving it a Mortal Kombat-style of look. It actually didn't take itself too seriously, featuring among other things fart moves and special attacks that had fighters stealing off their enemies' tops. Really, it all looked and moved more like an amateur effort and not a serious entry into the beat 'em up genre. Well, I didn't really care about that since the game featured, well, bikini babes- to be more exact, barefoot bikini babes... so it was great for me.
Since then, the studio responsible- Creative Edge- has been plugging away at a sequel, Warriors of Elysia. From all indications, WOE does a 180 away from the original, adopting a more serious storyline and tone... well, as serious as an all-out war set on an island populated completely by hot barefoot babes in bikinis can get. The game has been in development for what it seems like an eternity, but apparently it will finally see release on PC this October. As cheesy as it is, I can't resist a game full of so many live-action barefoot martial arts beauties... too bad it's on PC (I'm on Mac), so unless they put out a version for OSX or consoles, I'll have to pass. Still, we'll see, as it's still a long way to October. For now, enjoy the full trailer, just released recently on Youtube.
It's like Mortal Kombat, but with barefoot bikini babes!
