Team Reptile has announced its decision to delay the release window for Bomb Rush Cyberfunk to summer 2023.
“We are convinced that releasing the game this year will not take it to a level where we would be personally satisfied with [it],” the developer explained on Twitter. “To create a fulfilling and unique game we are extending the development time of Bomb Rush Cyberfunk to summer 2023.”
With the developer looking to deliver “1 second per second of highly advanced funkstyle,” in Bomb Rush Cyberfunk you will choose a character from your crew before freely exploring the three-dimensional streets that surround you.
You can expect to “dance, paint, trick, face off with the cops and stake your claim to the extrusions and cavities of a sprawling metropolis in an alternate future set to the musical brainwaves of Hideki Naganuma.”
In this world, self-styled crews are equipped with personal boostpacks with your goal to bomb and get your name up – painting graffiti in every neighbourhood to build enough REP to challenge the local crew for their territory.
You will be able to string your tricks and graffiti into combos to increase your score, landing it to convert into boost power that can help you “zoom through the city at top speed.” Perform a crazy enough combo and you will active Bomb Rush Mode, rewarding you with infinite boost power.
Bomb Rush Cyberfunk will release as a timed console exclusive on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Summer 2023.
