Yesterday, Double Stallion Games revealed a gameplay trailer for Speed Brawl, their 2D combat-racer (with management and platforming elements):
Here’s some details about the game:
Speed Brawl is set in a dystopic Victorian era London. After a decade of war with the Lunar invaders named the Selenites, the British Empire finally vanquished the insect-like menace; following the war, the Selenites became the new workforce of our industrial revolution, ushering in a new era of progress and prosperity. However, listlessness and disobedience rampaged throughout the middle and working classes. In order to satiate the masses, the ultimate entertainment, Speed Brawl, was created; an elite sport where only the bravest, the fastest, and the most worthy warriors could wage a petty war against the Selenite hordes. To prove your worth in this chaotic world filled with colour and calamity you’ve gotta fight, for your right… to… Speed Brawl!
- Razor sharp visuals and beautifully animated characters.
- Over 50 unique action-packed championships and challenges.
- Build a tag-team from 6 vibrant brawlers each with unique play style and distinct personalities.
- An imaginative and humorous story throughout will reveal high drama and even higher stakes for each brawler!
- Suit up! – Devise your brawler’s optimal loadout. Buy, win, and sell equipment to fashion the ultimate fighters.
- Invest in skill upgrades for heavier hits and flashier style.
- A fluid and deep combat system. Speed Brawl’s freeform combos let you chain together ground and air combos, special moves, assists, and tag attacks for ultimate devastation.
- Move on up to the big leagues! Conquer escalating hazards and devious bosses in the Threepenny, Sixpence, Florin, and Crown leagues. Each league is run by a unique and diabolical league owner with their own plans to halt your Speed Brawl career.
- Gotta go fast! – The faster you are, the harder your hit. Go for gold and blast through to the finish line.
- Brawl solo or brawl with a friend – Online and local co-operative play throughout!
Speed Brawl (Switch – eShop) comes out this Summer in Europe and North America.
