Pato Box is one of the weirdest games I’ve played in recent memory. On the surface, it almost looks like it has some sort of fusion between Punch Out!! and Sin City sprinkled with Hotline Miami, but once the game begins and gameplay actually starts, you begin to notice a shift in tone, progression, and even genre going from section to section. It’s a unique experience that may not be for everyone, but should be commended for blending tons of styles and creating something as goofy as it is intriguing.

Bromino has shared details on a new feature coming to Pato Box. Arcade Mode is being added to the Steam version, and should be available on Switch when the game launches on the eShop this year.

Arcade Mode involves taking on members of Deathflock consecutively and attempting to defeat them as quickly as possible. Based on your performance, you’ll obtain different ranks.

Some may compare Pato Box to Punch-Out!! upon first glance, and even though they have some similarities, there are also many differences. Pato Box features adventure and fighting elements with a visual style that takes after graphic novels. After Patobox is betrayed by his sponsor Deathflock, you’ll be tracking down his henchmen and discovering the company’s secrets.
