Interplay confirms the return of Clayfighter

While mediocre at best, the Clayfighter series were great just for it’s unique premise. Claymation fighters who fight each other to become the King of the Circus, with unique characters including Bad Mr. Frosty (a pissed off snowman), Trigger Hoppy (a terminator style bunny), Taffy (… A person made from Taffy…) and Sumo Santa (really self explanatory.) While the game never lived up to it’s competition, it did find it’s cult following, which allowed for 3 titles, the last being Clayfighters 63 1/3 for the Nintendo 64.

Last week, Interplay announced that they will be bringing back the Claymation fighter, including a comedic teaser trailer which poked some self-aware fun at the game. While at this time, we don’t have any actual gameplay, release date, console info, or character list (we can only hope Earthworm Jim and Boogerman will return as bonus characters) we can expect to hear something about the title in the near future.
