Just when you thought that games couldn't get any weirder - or any more awesome - here comes Pato Box. This brawler is developed by Bromio and has been on Steam Greenlight for a while, but now it's headed to the Switch eShop, too.
Pato Box is an adventure and fighting game inspired by the Punch-Out!! series, taking place in the building of a corrupted corporation. Judging from the video above there is also a bit of a MadWorld vibe going on too, which we just love.
In the game you play as none other than Patobox himself, a boxing champion with a special distinction of having a duck’s head in a man’s body. He has been betrayed by members of Deathflock, the same company that has been sponsoring him during his career. Patobox will find retribution by finding Deathflock’s henchmen while discovering the dark secrets the company hides and the truth behind his treason one fight at a time.
Well it all sounds rather intriguing to us. Let us know if this will be on your instabuy list when it pops up on the Switch eShop to buy later this year.
This is strange. I like it.
... What do you even say to this?
Punch Out for Switch: Bird Edition ($99.99)
you heard it, right here folks!
Fantastic news! I was hoping this would come to Switch!
@JTMnM Same here. Strange but I like it.
When I first saw the trailer, I couldn't beleive it. Watching it again today I still can't believe it. GOTY 2018 material right here.
PS: MadWorld 2 Switch when, Sega?
This is officially my most anticipated Nindi this year!
Make it motion controlled or die trying.
Weird, but not in a good way. The name sounds dumb to me as well. Pato means duck, so it's literally "Duck Box". Talk about lazy choices for titles...
Sorry, can't muster any enthusiasm for this at all.
I'm just going to call him Little Quack.
Interesting. But what I really want is a sequel to Wii's Punch Out. That game was so good. Did it sell poorly or something?
I think it is interesting that there seems to be an adventure aspect to it but I'm not really sure how well you can stretch out Punch Out.
I didn't have Wii.
I didn't play Mad World for Wii.
I want Mad World for Switch.
Make it happen.
Love it. These type of quirky games are right up my alley. Perfect addition for the Switch. Keep the weird ones coming!
Looks interesting. Might have to take a quack at it.
it has that kind of 90’s black and white underground comics vibe to it. i definitely approve of indie developers going back and remaking genres / styles that are not already overdone (like the 2d pixel platformer).
Looks weird in the best way. Hope it’s good.
I need this inside me
I'm actually intrigued. Fighting a chef in front of his cauldron... yeah, that's some next level Punch-Out!! right there
This excites me
Hmmm...I love Punch Out but this is bordering on being too weird. I’ll wait for a review and hope I’m wrong.
This.......looks........AMAZING!!!!!!!! Im most definitley getting this!!!
@Shiryu I too, have been waiting... Madworld was too good to be a one off. I also have a feeling it'll sell a lot better on Switch than it did on the Wii.
Awesome!!! This is from a Mexican studio and the lead game designer is my best friend! Congratulations to them!!
Weird! Duckmen returns!
I like it. But I do wish there was color. It’s very premise is colorful. It’s visuals should match. I’ll keep an eye on it.
It’s a knockout!
Now I really want a new Madworld
I don't see any kind of Madworld vibe (that silly yet stylish brutality) whatsoever in that video.
After all, Madworld didn't invent the black-and-white or comic style look.
@Kai_ Me too!
@ThanosReXXX lmfao yea and if you say pato in Spanish it basically means gay.. gay box.. the switch has officially became the indie system and the old game revival system. We paid 300 plus dollars to play nothing but cell phone games that were free then brought over to switch to charge us 5 to 20 dollars for a cellphone game that was free for 3 years or more. Sadly
Not a fan of this art style if I am honest.
@JoyconGang Gay Box??? So... a dark room?
@fafonio This is from a Mexican studio? Man, as a Mexican I have to support it. Getting this as soon as its available.
I would like it better if it had color.
@JoyconGang Though Pato means a gay male, as well as a duck, I imagine that most Spanish speaking people that I know will see it as duck. Now if it was something like, "El Pato," then most people would read that as a gay guy.
Mexicans call boxing as box so the name makes sense. Duck Boxing would be closer to the meaning. Boxeo would be the actual word.
@sinalefa Thanks for the elaboration on the meaning of it.
Still doesn't make me any more interested in the game, though...
@j-life true indeed. I still think it's a weird name for a game I mean I understand it's a boxing duck but I mean come on pato box? 🤣😂
@ThanosReXXX a sad room
@PACO_PEREZ yeah... they are based in Puebla
Walk around and just punch everything, lol.
Pass. But I think I know some people who would like it.
This looks awesome! But would it hurt them to add a little animation to the overworld model?
@sinalefa not sure why they didn't use boxeo
Looks really neat. I like the comic look to everything.
I'll probably pick this up to get my Punch Out fix.
