'KungFu Kickball' (ALL) Available On Steam Early Access - Trailer

An all-new fantasy sport that combines soccer and martial arts, KungFu Kickball is a non-stop showdown of kicks, punches, and magical abilities.

Square off against friends in a fantasy sport that infuses the action of soccer with martial arts. Unleash a whirlwind of kicks, punches, and magical abilities to take out the opposing team and boot the ball downfield. Score points by overpowering or outmaneuvering rival defenders and send the ball crashing into one of the gigantic bells at either end of the stadium.

KungFu Kickball makes use of minimalistic controls to create an accessible yet competitive experience. Matches are fast-paced tug-of-war-style showdowns where players switch between offensive strikes and defensive stands at the drop of a hat -- or the ring of a bell. And with six stages and three player classes to choose between, every match takes on its own character.

Featuring local and online 1v1 and 2v2 multiplayer, KungFu Kickball allows for rivalries to form on the couch or over the Internet. Challenge friends, foes, and strangers alike to see which side can pull off the best maneuvers and ultimately determine who is the KungFu Kickball master.

KungFu Kickball strikes from the shadows is now available through Steam Early Access for PC/Mac at $19.99 / £15.99.99 / €17.99. It features English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, and Korean language support.

KungFu Kickball’s Early Access launch includes five detailed pixel-art arenas and five classes of fighters. Each character features a different playstyle, like the unpredictable Drunken Boxer, strong-footed Old Master, or the fleet-footed Assassin. Learn the ins and outs of each ability in a comprehensive training mode then compete in 1v1 or 2v2 online or local multiplayer matches. Emerge victorious to unlock a special secret character with awesome abilities!

“KungFu Kickball captures the best aspects of combat arts with the appeal of competitive sports,” said Ben Lee, co-founder, Blowfish Studios. “We’re pleased to open our digital dojo and welcome new KungFu Kickball players today with the game’s Early Access launch on Steam!”

“The v1.0 release of KungFu Kickball is expected to gain many more features - we plan to expand the overall scope of the offline game modes through additional difficulty modes in Arcade Mode and more unlockable characters for you to play against both offline and online. Not only that but we’ll be looking at further enhancing the online gameplay experience, ensuring that it’s stable and smooth for as many players as possible. Alongside the console launch of the game we are implementing cross-play with Steam, ensuring that all players regardless of platform can enjoy more competitive matches together.”
