The Party Platform Fighter, Brawlout, has announced its release date on Nintendo Switch for December 19th of this year. Brawlout will allow Nintendo Switch owners to challenge both friends and rivals on the go in fast-paced, smooth combat that makes full use of all the console’s play modes and portability.
To accompany the release date announcement, the developers at Angry Mob Games have unveiled the next special guest that will be joining Brawlout’s imaginative roster of fighters.
Introducing Juan, from the popular action-platformer Guacamelee! by Drinkbox Studios. The legendary luchador, Juan Aguacate joins the Brawl complete with his moveset from Guacamelee! Rooster Uppercut your foes into the air, bring them back down to earth with his Frog Slam and crack some heads with his multi-functional Grapple. He can even turn into a chicken and send his enemies soaring!
Brawlout packs a punch with couch and online play modes, blending platform fighter mechanics and traditional fighting game play into a stylish and fluid battle royale. Rather than slow-paced defensive battles, Brawlout goes all-out with the lightning-fast aerobatics which platform fighters are famous for. With wavedashing, a free-form combat system, and the Rage Meter at the player’s disposal, each battle should be a combo-bonanza!
There are currently six original characters and two popular indie characters to choose from that allow for varied play styles. From grappling to long range weapon options, there is a character for all fighting game aficionados. As well as cosmetic skins, each original Brawlout character has up to three Variants; alt versions of the character with different stats, outfits and even new moves. With these Variants, Brawlout’s cast numbers 18 individual fighters. Find the fighter and Variant that’s right for you and tear it up on the battlefield.
Whether players are looking for a casual couch experience with friends, or to challenge pros in worldwide online tournaments, Brawlout caters to anyone looking to create a little chaos.
