Kongregate and Double Stallion have announced that the anime-inspired 2D combat-racer Speed Brawl will release on Nintendo Switch.
It promises to throw you an all-out bloodsport as you fight your way through the dank streets of a dystopian London, forcing you to maintain your momentum while using your remaining energy to unleash powerful special moves.
You can expect to find physics-based contraptions and interactable objects like poles, explosive barrels, boost pads, and deadly circular saws that you can use to take out your enemies, too.
The game’s campaign can be played as a single or cooperative multiplayer experience whether locally or online, and you can race against players from around the world for the best times on event leaderboards.
“Speed Brawl was inspired in part by the over-the-top action, violence, and dark humour of movies like Rollerball, The Hunger Games, and Starship Troopers,” explains Double Stallion producer, Daniel Menard.
“We always knew we wanted to make a physics-and-fisticuffs experience that would feel like Thundercats or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, about a team of people who go through an extraordinary challenge and realize that fighting as a team is better than fighting alone.”
Kongregate director of production Kevin DuPuy, adds: “Speed Brawl’s fresh take on the action platformer keeps evolving and surprising throughout the course of the game’s campaign.
“Double Stallion has fine-tuned the gameplay to let players be in a constant state of flow, bringing a depth and variety to the combat that allows players to really dig in and define their own unique playstyle. All of this comes together in a stylish and striking package, making it an absolute blast to pick up and play.”
Speed Brawl will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2018.
