SYDNEY – Oct. 27, 2021.
The Australia-based indie games publisher Blowfish Studios and indie games developer WhaleFood Games, are today super excited and happy to announce that their team-based sports platform fighter “KungFu Kickball” is coming to PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S/Xbox One, and the Nintendo Switch on December 2nd, 2021.
Dart headfirst into an action-packed arena fusing intense martial arts with high-speed competition. Face rival squads, performing epic leaps, stunning steals, and powerful kicks to launch a kickball at the opposing team’s bell. Strategize offensive and defensive plays to outsmart challengers and bring them to their knees with each glorious ring.
Tag in one of five fighters, all with individual kicking styles, and compete on six different stages. Weave through defenders with the agile Monk, strike from behind with the ever-dangerous Assassin, or put a hurt on the competition with the hard-hitting Monkey King. Master every angle and bounce with strikes, blocks, and headbutts against the ball and enemy teams.
Become one with the ball and hone unbeatable skills in a comprehensive training mode. Compete in 1v1 or 2v2 online or local multiplayer matches to climb the ladder and claim the title of Kickball Master. KungFu Kickball’s pick-up-and-play accessibility invites fans of all genres to jump in with an easy and intuitive three-button control scheme.
“KungFu Kickball seamlessly fuses the team’s love for sports and fighting games, something we have been wanting to play ourselves for years,” said Ben Lee, co-founder, Blowfish Studios.
“We wanted to create a game that was both casually accessible but with a high skill ceiling for those who wish to play more competitively.”
KungFu Kickball will hit free agency for $19.99 / £12.99 / €15.99 with full crossplay support featuring language support for English, French, Italian, German, Latin American Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Japanese, Simplified & Traditional Chinese, and Korean.
