Project L got rave reviews from the pros, who cited its mechanics and nostalgic feel as two major pros. Super Smash Melee pro William ‘Leffen’ Hjelte compared the game to Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and said he would open up his competitive calendar when it releases.

Little has been revealed about the game release date or schedule. Outside of gameplay, the only info that has been leaked about the title is its console port.
