Cruising For A Bruising with Brawlout

Promising ridiculously fast battles, unique fighting styles and up to 8 player matches, Brawlout is the new platform fighter from Angry Mob Games. Their vision is to blend the precision of violent fighters, with a gorgeous animated style

Slated for an early 2017 release Brawlout offers the usual line up of single player campaign, online ranked tournaments, as well as the aforementioned online and local battles with 2-8 players.

The roster of fighter will be distinct from each other by utilising powerful projectiles or long-range whip attacks, as well as combo options and advanced technical moves. There’s also a Rage Meter, which fuels powerful special attacks.

The trailer shows Angry Mob is attempting to merge vibrant platforming with varied combat styles to give Brawlout an identity of its own. There will be and array of special moves on offer with an emphasis on ground combos.

The games synopsis describes a vivid world of ancient secrets and endless conflict, Brawlout puts the future of civilization in the hands (or claws) of its anthropomorphic animals. As an Exemplar chosen to represent their civilization in combat, each creature fights for the honor and pride of their people.

“We’re all fighting game fans, so we’ve built our dream platform fighter”, says Bogdan Iliesiu, CEO at Angry Mob Games. “We’ve heard what players miss from classic fighters and what they love about new ones, and Brawlout is designed to give people the best of both worlds, whether that’s ruining friendships around the TV or going online to anger strangers in tournaments.”
