MANILA, PHILIPPINES, September 26, 2019—BAYANI: Kanino Ka Kakampi?!, a fighting game developed by Ranida Games, recently released its first major update last September 18, 2019 after its Steam Early Access launch last June 12, 2019.

With the addition of Dre, the roster is now 5 out of 9 from the initial list of characters. Along with the new playable character, the update also features Oria’s Stage—Campo Monumento—which is based from a real location in the Philippines that has a historical significance. Dre’s character theme was also made available as a selectable battle background music.

“We are very much excited for Dre to become a playable character,” says Ben Banta, CEO of Ranida Games. “He is our very first character outside of our Early Access launch and we made sure to use everything we’ve learned from all the feedback we’ve gotten. We’ve got a lot of input, suggestions, and criticisms from the community and we are using all of those to improve the game even more,” he added. Aside from the new playable character and stage, a lot of gameplay updates and improvements were also implemented.
