Atooi's Jools Watsham has revealed that he's hard at work on Soccer Slammers, a 2-on-2 arcade soccer (or football, depending on your linguistic preference) title for Switch.
Described as a "fun side project", Soccer Slammers is inspired by the likes of NBA Jam and is focused on "fast, fun gameplay".
The World Cup takes place this year so the timing of this release is perfect, and the Switch certainly isn't inundated with soccer titles. We're personally looking forward to this one, but what about you? Let us know with a comment.
Looks more like a sort of Minecraft Football type game
Don't think Fifa 18 has anything to worry about just yet
Not much info to base an opinion on yet. But it looks like a £3.99 game.
@gcunit Yet most of them end up charging £17.99 for them. cough Island Flight Simulator cough cough - gotta tend to that coughing problem.
I really hope it has Canada as a playable country... Soccer powerhouse that we are, and all...
Uhm, I don't want to judge a book by it's cover, but one thing that really worked about Jam was it's visuals and animation. They worked in lock-step with the 'silly' mechanics, music and over the top commentator.
I dunno, but that visual look they are going for here ... does nothing to me, and it certainly doesn't scream over-the-top arcade sport games, but rather "pretty fancy Minecraft contraption!"
Lazy visual style.
It will only cost you £40, with physical version available <-- Sarcasm
@XenoShaun Hey! I was just looking at the flight simulator on the eshop last night and getting tempted - you watch yer mouth!
I agree, it's like Minecraft by way of Slayaway Camp via Meh Town, which lies just over the hill from Yawnsville.
I think I'll pass on this one, but I'm definitely getting Xeodrifter next month!
"Inspired by NBA Jam"
More like: "Title all but stolen from Sega Soccer Slam"...
Could be a fun travel game.
I'd like a pick up and play arcade style footie game for the Switch. As such I will wait to see reviews of this one but alas, initial impressions based only a screenshot mind aren't especially positive.
Hurry up Hamster and release SUPER SIDEKICKS 2 for Switch!!!
Why Boxing sport is still a forgotten genre ?
Atooi is not a shovelware company. The game won’t be overpriced. The visuals will probably be basic but the game will probably play well and be a good value for people who want to play it.
@bluesdance true and thats why this has my attention.
Seems like a must buy if it has online multiplayer.
Neat to see Atooi with their first 3d game in the works. Xeodrifter was a "fun side project" and that game turned out great! I have high hopes for this one and will be getting it day 1.
What makes NBA jam amazing?
Awesome Dunks, crazy shots, amazing offense!
How will this be like NBA Jam?
My guess is that you can push people down.
I wish he'd just finish Treasurenauts.
Looks more like it was inspired by Pong.
I'd rather have a beefed up version of Nintendo World Cup, similar to the new River City Ransom games
@Anti-Matter ARMS would like a word with you.
@cyrus_zuo maybe it will have Big Head mode and a bunch of made-up street slang
Why are the characters just Minecraft blocks? No really, is there a joke I don't understand?
