Infinite Crisis has a new contender in its ranks: the one and only "Man of Steel", also known as Superman, enters the fray.

Newly added to Kickstarter, 8 Bit Studios’ Skara, is a new MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), that looks to combine some of our favorite things about all gaming genres and mesh them into an arena game like no other. Skara’s own creators describe the game by saying “Imagine an experience with the action of Street Fighter inside a story and land like World of Warcraft, all blended into a fast-paced Call of Duty style arena.” From watching the video, I can get a feel for what they mean by that. The game really has a solid, fantasy basis to work off of. The speed at which the player’s character moves through the world is similar to that which might be found in a game such as Call of Duty.

DotA, as it was called, nearly single-handedly popularized the multi-player online battle arena (MOBA) genre, and the rest is history.
