Press release:
TOKYO – Feb. 4, 2019 – “BATTLLOON“, the balloon-battling party game from Sony publishing label UNTIES and noname studio will pop on Nintendo Switch and Steam on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2019.

Gather two to four people, choose from six balloons and engage in the ultimate high-stakes drama. Attack and bump buddies into spiked walls to be crowned king of the balloon battles.

Using only the control stick and a single button, BATTLLOON is an easy game for everyone to get hooked on. Avoiding getting popped is harder than it looks, but deflation is not the end. Punctured pals revive as ghosts who can still compete for victory points.

Each bouncy balloon is a supreme warrior with distinct playstyles. Puffer can grow big and become unmovable; Birdie Jay is the master of maneuverability but light and easy to bonk into spikes; and Astro Cat wows onlookers with its fabulous rainbow trail.

Retro-style pixel arenas and upbeat chiptunes set the stage for colorful battlegrounds. Each environment carries its own special dangers like balloon-eating fish or spiky volcanic rocks that can pop anyone caught off guard.

BATTLLOON’s transcendental conflicts and whimsical squabbles burst with vibrant visuals and gales of giggles to create a party experience that will keep people of all ages glued to their controllers.

“Take one look at BATTLLOON and anyone can see the kind of over-the-top fun they’re in for,” said John Davis, G&R Representative, UNTIES.

“It’s the kind of experience that has drawn attendees at shows like PAX across the showfloor to see what the hell is going on, with gameplay kept them coming back for more. Now we look forward to sharing BATTLLOON with the world.”

BATTLLOON will be available via Nintendo Switch eShop and Steam on Feb. 28. It will support the English and Japanese languages for two to four players locally.
