'Brawlout' (ALL) Gets Nintendo Switch Retail Edition

by Rainier on Feb. 5, 2018 @ 5:13 p.m. PST

Set in a vivid world of ancient secrets and endless conflict, Brawlout is a fighting game that puts the future of civilization in the hands (or claws) of its anthropomorphic animals.

Designed for couch and online play - Brawlout mixes platform fighter mechanics, with traditional fighting game moves and pace, doing away with traditional blocking and grabbing to reveal a system based on fluid movement and over the top combos.

As an Exemplar chosen to represent their civilization in combat, each creature fights for the honor and pride of their people.

By merging vibrant platforming with varied combat styles, offering a parade of special moves and emphasizing ground combos, Brawlout finds its own identity - the precision of violent fighters, with a gorgeous animated style.

Merge Games has partnered with Angry Mob Games to bring the party-fighting game, Brawlout, to Nintendo Switch retail.

Merge Games’ Managing Director, Luke Keighran, remarked, “We are delighted to have teamed-up with Angry Mob Games. Brawlout is an awesome title and partnering with Angry Mob Games has been a great experience. We believe Brawlout on the Switch will be warmly welcomed by retailers and fans alike.”  

Angry Mob Games’ CEO, Bogdan Iliesiu, commented, “Brawlout had such an amazing reception on Nintendo Switch, with a dedicated community of over 80K players in its first month alone. It's impressive, and humbling, to see people throw themselves so wholeheartedly into Brawlout, and we hope to cater to even more types of gamers with the physical release!”

Due for release in early May 2018, Brawlout will be available as a Nintendo Switch physical edition.

Launching with an initial six fighters to choose from, Brawlout hosts up to four players in online and local battles, including local multiplayer in either timed, stock or team battles. Throughout combat, fighting builds a player’s Rage Meter, which fuels powerful special attacks. Each fighter comes complete with powerful projectiles or long-range whip attacks that can be evolved through further combo options and advanced technical moves. Combined with advanced movement techniques like wavedashing and air dodging, Brawlout adds new mechanics to keep the action fast and fluid.

Each character in Brawlout has their own unique playstyle, catering to specific character archetypes seen in other fighters. Whether they’re a die-hard grappler or a rushdown fiend, there is a fighter for every player in Brawlout. The game is designed for both couch play and online play, with 2-4 player quick matches, ranked ladders, private lobbies and Brawlout TV for watching live matches, featured replays and for making live tournaments much easier to stream. Brawlout focuses heavily on the aggressive, fast-paced combat which has made platform fighters so fun to both play and watch.

Key Features:

  • Choose from six original characters, each with unique combat styles, or try your hand at Hyper Light Drifter from the indie hit of the same name + more surprise fighters in the works
  • Host up to 4 players in online and local battles, with several modes including timed, stock or team matches
  • Fuel your Rage Meter to power up for hard-hitting Special Attacks and unleash your Rage Mode
  • Action is kept fast and fluid with advanced techniques like air dodging, wavedashes, directional influence on stun, ledge grabs or Rage Bursts.
  • 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.
