Hero Concept announced today that the urban fantasy-themed beat ’em up, Mayhem Brawler, has been announced for the Nintendo Switch, and it will be releasing some time in 2021.
It looks to be a great throwback for the genre, and I can imagine the co-op will be a lot of fun for fans. I especially like the comic book aesthetic and Streets of Rage 4-style graphics.
What is Mayhem Brawler?
TO PROTECT AND SERVE. While answering a routine call on a patrol, Dolphin, Star and Trouble -the most popular officers of the super-powered law enforcement agency, Stronghold- find themselves in a sequence of events that will alter the fate of the entire city.
EXCESSIVE FORCE. Let’s get one thing straight; if you ever think that a day in the life of a super-powered law enforcer is easy, you couldn’t be more wrong, as there are greater threats than street gangs in urban fantasy themed Mayhem Brawler. Using your arsenal of combos and special abilities, you and your co-op teammates should make life miserable for those super-powered criminals, fend yourself from the fury of werewolves, resist the hexes of street wizards and confront the megacorp led by vampire houses that enforce their goons to do their dirty deeds.
THE MAYHEM UNIVERSE. Comic book inspired hand-drawn backgrounds and frame-by-frame animations coupled with a kick-ass soundtrack will deliver a jolt of adrenaline to your controller. With the choices you make, you will shape the flow of the story and finally reach one of the three different endings in Mayhem Brawler universe, where each corner has a story to tell.
- A fresh take on classic 90s-style beat ’em ups
- Offline co-op mode that supports up to 3 players
- Ability to alter the game flow with player-led decisions
- 3 unique endings based on player’s choices
- 3 playable characters against 30 mobs including 12 unique bosses
- Hand-drawn comic book inspired art, frame-by-frame animated characters and a rocking soundtrack
- Your admission ticket to the limitless universe of Mayhem
Mayhem Brawler looks to be a great addition to the beat ’em up genre, and the ability to play co-op with up to 3 players is a big reason to keep an eye on this one. The game is planned for release some time in 2021, and we will be sure to keep you updated with that information as it comes in.
