About Shadow Fight Arena
Shadow Fight is one of the great fighting game series on mobile. It has had millions of fans worldwide. In 2018, NEKKI released the 3rd version of this series. It marked a big change in the gameplay and graphics with many great upgrades. The 3rd version is considered the best of the series. It has the same high graphics quality as the 3A games on the PC and improved gameplay. In addition to the story mode, Shadow Fight 3 has a PvP game mode where players will battle in real-time. You have to defeat opponents and climb to the top of the leaderboards. However, there have been many player complaints about this mode because it is quite boring when the opponents are usually bots (not real players). Therefore, NEKKI decided to release another version based on the third version to further improve this PvP mode. The new one is called Shadow Fight Arena.
True to its name, Shadow Fight Arena aims to play PvP modes where you will participate in an arena with other players around the world. Besides, there are no Bots anymore. Instead, you will fight real opponents in real-time battles. Besides, the game also brings a significant upgrade in graphics. Also, it still retains all the good points from the third version Shadow Fight 3.
The game features
Shadow Fight Arena is one of the best fighting games on mobile where you can challenge your fighting skills with opponents worldwide. Please explore the outstanding features of the game right below:
Attractive PvP game mode
As mentioned, Shadow Fight Arena focuses only on the Online game mode where matches take place in real-time. The mechanism of the game also has many differences compared to the PvP mode in Shadow Fight 3. Specifically, to start a game, players need to choose 3 heroes to fight with other players’ teams. Besides, each match has no time limit. The victory is determined when one side is defeated. When a hero is killed, the helmet icon in the corner of the character’s energy bar is blurred. Then, a new hero will join the arena. The hero that won the previous round will continue to fight with the remaining health. Also, the match will go on until all heroes of one side are defeated. After a win, you will receive coins, experience points, or treasure chests.
Unlock new characters
Shadow Fight Arena offers a diverse hero system consisting of 13 different characters for players to choose from. However, to unlock all of them, you need to go through 10 arenas with many different challenges. Besides, the developer also confirmed that they will be adding old heroes from the 2 previous versions of the game. Also, you meet some familiar Bosses from Shadow Fight 2 and 3 during the game. New heroes can be unlocked when you collect all the required cards. Players can also base on the colors of the cards to rank heroes rarity. Specifically, blue is common, yellow – rare, and purple – legendary.
Upgrade heroes skills and more
Moreover, each hero in the game has basic stats of attack and defense points. Other features include Passive, Active, and Shadow abilities. During the battle, your heroes will get experience points to level up. It provides access to new Talents as well as increases the character’s combat abilities. Also, players will have in hand the character’s development as the choice of talents when leveling up will affect their fighting style and other stats. Shadow Fight Arena also allows players to change the talents of their characters for free. If you feel that the hero’s skills are not suitable for battle, you can change them to find the right strategies.
After each win, in addition to the rewards, you will receive Fame Points, which is a measure to show your influence in the game. The higher this stat is, the more powerful the opponents will be.
Many new arenas
Shadow Fight Arena takes players to 10 new arenas in 10 different lands. They are deserts, dungeons, training areas … Each location will be characterized by different settings. However, the arenas do not affect the strength of the heroes.
Diverse weapons and equipment systems
Shadow Fight Arena still offers a diverse weapon collection with over 100 items. They are divided into 4 different groups along with helmets, armor and long-range weapons (darts, bows). Besides, the weapons groups include Legion, Dynasty, Heralds, and Special Weapons. Each weapon has its own strengths and weaknesses. Some are only suitable for a certain hero. You need to remember that the weapon affects the hero’s combat stats, so you need to choose the right items to have a good performance.
Besides weapons, players still have the option to equip or upgrade character costumes, such as armor, helmets, gloves… They bring different effects to the character. For example, some armor has the ability to reduce the total damage taken while the hero is performing the skills. Or some long-range weapons cause the enemy to freeze.
In Shadow Fight Arena, the control mechanism is completely similar to Shadow Fight 3. It is understandable because the developer clearly does not want you to have to get used to the controls. There are 2 control areas on the left and right sides of the screen. In which, the left side is the navigation key to move the character. On the right side, there are 4 keys for action, including an attack with hand, attack with the foot, use a long-range weapon, and activate darkness energy. Players will have to combine navigation and action keys to perform the attack, defense, and skill.
Shadow Fight Arena brings a great improvement in graphics compared to previous versions. If you have played Shadow Fight 3, you will realize that Shadow Fight Arena’s graphics are quite similar. However, everything has been improved for better performance. Besides, the character’s movements are simulated accurately. During the battle, the effects are also impressive. Also, the developer built all locations in the game meticulously, making the playing experience perfect.
Play on multiple platforms
Shadow Fight Arena is now available on Android and iOS. Besides, you can play it on Windows and Mac OS thanks to Android emulators like BlueStack, or Nox. The game supports controllers, so you can connect controllers for a better gaming experience. We tried connecting the game to the xbox One controller and everything worked perfectly.
The configuration requirements
Shadow Fight Arena is not a game for low-end devices. It has a large capacity and high-quality graphics, so it requires your device to have powerful hardware for everything to work smoothly. Specifically, your Android device needs to run at least OS 6.0 or higher, with the minimum 3GB ram and 8-core processor. There have been many comments about the game not working on devices with less than 3GB ram.
