While Nintendo might not be ready to reveal a Smash game for Switch just yet, the Nintendo Switch is no stranger to fighting games, as quite a few have been announced for it already, and now another game can add itself to that line-up!
Ousted by the European eShop, Angry Mob Games’ classic party fighting game, Brawlout will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch this fall and it is game that will most certainly not disappoint!
A new challenger has appeared in the platform fighter arena!:
Brawlout is the party fighting game, designed for courch play, online ranked matches and competitive tournaments.
Striking the balance between the growing competitive scene sand the genre’s game roots. Brawlout hopes to cater to the veteran platform fighter, the casual fan and the newcomer looking to make their mar.
Brawlout does away with shields and blocking, focusing heavily on the aggressive, fast-paced combat which has made platform fighters so fun to both play and watch.
Each character in Brawlout has their own unique playstyle, catering to specific character archetypes seen in other fighters. Whether you’re a die-hard grappler or a rushdown fiend, there is a fighter for you in Brawlout.
Combined with familiar movement techniques like wavedashing and airdodging, Brawlout adds some extra mechanics seen in other fighting games. The Rage Meter builds up as you both deal and take damage, allowing you either to break combos with the Rage Burst or unleash hell with the Rage Mode. The Rage Burst pushes opponents back, breaking their combos and allowing players to create some breathing room at the cost of half their Rage Meter. If the meter fills, you can activate Rage Mode, increasing the knockback you deal while reducing the amount you take.
As for modes, Brawlout has all you’d expect from a normal platform fighter and then some. Up to four players can compete in local same-device multiplayer in either timed, stock or team battles. AI opponents are also available if you want to practice your team combos with a friend, or if you need to fill out for a free for all.
Brawlout’s online suite is suitably robust, with all the following features:
- Free-For-All casual matches for low-stress competition.
- A robust Ranked match system, complete with regional leaderboards.
- 2-4 player private lobbies where players can practise or mess about to their heart’s content.
- The Brawlout Network where players can check their fight stats, match history and replays.
- Brawlout TV which allows for live spectating and watching of specific player replays.
