A beta for Fighting is Magic was leaked
Pony news? Eeyup. And it might be something a few of you were hoping for. But I wasn't.
Editor’s Note: Apparently, the game was not only leaked through a Mane 6 Q&A but it has apparently been spreading online for a while now. Unfortunately for any of you bronies out there who were looking to get your hooves (see what I did there?) on it, it looks like this leak will actually put a fairly lengthy delay on the complete product.
Here’s what the development team had to say about the situation:
Here’s some gameplay footage taken from the Pre-Alpha build if you have yet to see it:
Is it weird that as a fighting game fan, I’m a tad disappointed that this is delayed?

When I first heard about this, I wasn't sure I believed it. After all, I heard it first on 4chan's mlp board (and from what I know, never trust 4chan). But after a few hours, the internet blew up with people playing a leaked beta of My little Pony Fighting is Magic and all I have to say is: internet. I am dissapoint.
Look. I don't blame you for playing it if you already have. This game has had a lot of hype. But the developers said they were dissapointed in the leak and for good reason. The game is still buggy as Hell from what I've heard. However, the developers are letting people play it because its not like they're losing money by doing so. The full game will be free anyway! But I won't be playing it out of respect for the developers. They want people to have the full gaming experience and I intend on getting one.
In the meantime, go hunt for a link to download it if you're so curious. I'm not stopping you and the Mane 6 dev team isn't either. Go wild.......... what? Did you expect ME to link it to you? Haha! (type in "Fighting is Magic leak" and I'm sure you'll get something.).
