Brawlout coming to Switch later this year

Posted on August 8, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop

Brawlout is heading to Switch, a listing on the European Switch eShop reveals. A release is planned for late 2017.

Brawlout is a party fighting game that debuted on Steam earlier this year. It’s “designed for couch play, online ranked matches and competitive tournaments.”

We have plenty of details about Brawlout in the overview below. A trailer for the game is also attached past the break.

Striking the balance between the growing competitive scene and the genre’s party game roots, Brawlout hopes to cater to the veteran platform fighter, the casual fan and the newcomer looking to make their mark.

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.

Each character in Brawlout has their own unique playstyle, catering to specific character archetypes seen in other fighters. Whether you’re a die-hard grappler or a rushdown fiend, there is a fighter for you in Brawlout.

Combined with familiar movement techniques like wavedashing and airdodging, Brawlout adds some extra mechanics seen in other fighting games. The Rage Meter builds up as you both deal and take damage, allowing you either break combos with the Rage Burst or unleash hell with the Rage Mode. The Rage Burst pushes opponents back, breaking their combos and allowing players to create some breathing room at the cost of half their Rage Meter. If the meter fills, you can activate the Rage Mode, increasing the knockback you deal while reducing the amount you take.

As for modes, Brawlout has all you’d expect from a normal platform fighter and then some. Up to four players can compete in local multiplayer in either timed, stock or team battles. AI opponents are also available if you want to practice your team combos with a friend, or if you need to fill out a free for all.

Brawlout’s online suite is suitably robust, with all of the following features:

– Free-For-All casual matches for low-stress competition
– A robust Ranked match system, complete with regional leaderboards
– 2-4 player private lobbies where players can practice or mess about to their heart’s content
– The Brawlout Network where players can check their fight stats, match history and replays
– Brawlout TV which allows for live spectating and watching of specific player replays

  • Definitely getting this for Switch. Hopefully they add more recognizable indie characters (Shantae, Shovel Knight, Gunvolt,) that would otherwise not make it in Smash. I like what I’m looking at from the trailer.

    is this a smash of indie character?! looks very nice, buying on Steam right now. looking forward the portable version later

    • Lance Devon

      More like a Smash of brand new characters period, starring some indies.

      • Fredy Rodriguez Ortega

        I did not notice that I boguth in steam but I returned it, it needs a lot of poolish for now, maybe in the future it turns good

  • alex tingle

    Hmm smash for people without nintendo. Feels wrong but if its fun who cares, im pickin it up. Annoyed about wave dashing though, tired of hearing about it from people who obsess over melee.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      I’m afraid the prime focus of this will be “Advanced Techniques”, and not in making it all a balanced blend on what makes a game good.

      • alex tingle

        I dont mind meta gaming, i just hope they made it fun overall

  • metalpants

    So a Smash clone with indie characters? And a sweet looking art style? Might just have to bite 😮

  • Kenneth Kalousek

    I’d rather just have a new Smash…

  • Princess_Eevee9

    Looks so similar to Smash, is this by those hackers from the Smash Community? It looks okay, but just screams I wish I was Smash. Background was lifeless and the music was lacking.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      Doesn’t mean people can’t try to make their own based on it’s gameplay system. That’s the thing people don’t understand. Smash may be the original Platform Fighter, but that doesn’t mean it should have a monopoly on it even on consoles.

      Bit of healthy competition never hurt anybody.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        They may try, but don’t be surprised if you fail. The gameplay isn’t what drives the franchise, it’s the characters plus the atmosphere. Though for me it’s the Stages and Music. So far it’s missing just about it all.

    • Exy

      Sounds like a certain other fighting game that focused on pleasing only advanced players at the expense of everyone else.

      • Princess_Eevee9

        *Cough cough *?

  • MagcargoMan

    Not really interested but it’s cool to see how polished the animations are compared to some other independent Smash clones.

  • DeltaPeng

    Cool, the gameplay looks like it’s a step in the right direction. Iconic/familiar characters are cooler (i.e. in smash), but some of the characters here look like fun. If the price is right (and the reviews agree that the gameplay is good), I’d probably buy it

  • Radish

    “Wow, really? Why couldn’t we get Meleeout? It’s the superior version!”
