Developer Angry Mob Games announced that its Party Platform Fighter, Brawlout, will be releasing on the 21st of August on PS4. To accompany the release date announcement, the developers revealed that Yooka-Laylee, from the popular 3D platformer by Playtonic Games, will be joining Brawlout’s imaginative roster of fighters.
The buddy-duo, Yooka (the green one) and Laylee (the wisecracking bat with the red nose) join the brawl complete with the moveset learned in their epic adventures! Lizard Leap your foes into the air, bring them crashing back down to earth with a Buddy Slam and send them soaring with a Sonar 'Splosion! Yooka can even slurp up an incoming projectile to use it as his own.
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-bonzana.
There are currently six original characters and three 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 three Variants; alt versions of the character with different stats, outfits and even new moves. With these 21 Variants, Brawlout’s cast numbers 24 individual fighters. Find the fighter and Variant that’s right for you and tear it up on the battlefield.
Pre-orders are now available for North America, with a special 10% off discount, a chilling dynamic theme, with the bouncy Olaf Tyson and Paco, and two exclusive skins: Mascot Feathers and Mighty Paco.
