Some fresh details have been shared for Crazy Justice, the latest Battle Royale title aiming to challenge Fortnite for supremacy on Switch, and they definitely sound most welcome.
The news comes from an updated FAQ list on developer Black Riddle Studio's website, in which various little nuggets of information are shared. First up is confirmation that the game will receive "Splatoon-style motion controls" - a feature that is heavily adored by a small army of Switch fans. Of course, Fortnite's motion controls have left quite a lot to be desired since they were first introduced, so this could be one area where Crazy Justice stands on top.
Elsewhere, the site says that any Switch backers from the project's Fig crowdfunding campaign will be receiving the same Founder's Pack as other versions, and that the game will take up less than 3GB of space on the system's memory.
Despite initially being scheduled for a 13th June release, the game has since been delayed and no set date has been given since. Apparently, the studio has already been hard at work on the Switch-specific launch trailer, however, and the title will be appearing in the Switch's 'Coming Soon' section "very soon". As it happens, the game will be hitting Steam Early Access on 23rd August, so it certainly seems like it's getting closer and closer to launch.
Are you interested in this one? Do you think it will be able to offer something unique to Fortnite, as the developer suggests? Let us know your thoughts below.
Why do they insists on putting tilt controls everywhere? I just want a standard console shooter without controls from a Mario Party minigame. If you want precision, go PC.
Was just wondering what happened to this.
The screenshot actually looks decent, but the gameplay just looks like a cheap Fortnite knockoff.
...Surprise, surprise, it is just a cheap Fortnite knockoff.
@Yhdekskymmenen excuse me, but what's your problem with a feature that you can turn off and will help others? Your choice if you want lower persizion.
This must be one of the dumbest things I've ever read here.🙄
Precise and fast aiming should ALWAYS be welcomed and (at least) an option.
@Yhdekskymmenen you know you can usually turn them off. You get a choice lol. For instance I only use motion controls in Splatoon because that game has the best implementation of motion controls in any game over ever played and it just doesn't compare on any other game.
Crazy Justice: [Uphill] Battle Royale. It'll never topple Fortnite, but no harm in trying I guess. Going free to play will help. I'll try it out if it's free. It looks pretty naff in the videos I've seen... and changing the release date and stuff with very little-to-no updates just makes them seem a bit amateur, imo.
In regards to motion controls, I'm all for them. However, I do think that games should matchmake with your control method in mind. People with motion controls play with other people using them. Keeps things fair. (This bugs me about Fortnite and Splatoon, as I CBA with motion controls but feel like I am at a disadvantage.)
I'll happily check it out if it's free-to-play, if anything because the idea of a battle royale incorporating controls anywhere near as good as the ones in Splatoon is too interesting to skip. That said, if they want to survive they'll need to work hard to separate their identity from Fortnite. As is, this looks pretty bargain bin...
@Yhdekskymmenen your comment is so far off the mark it’s funny. Gyrocontrols are ace when implemented well. Splatoon and DOOM are so much better for them. They are not motion control per say. They fine tune the dual stick controls and are OPTIONAL.
This alone makes it automatically better than Fortnite (but I'm still not going to play it). The motion control implementation in Fortnite is so awful that I gave up on the game.
@Moon I am pretty sure I read this is not going to be free to play... And if it is not is a certain Bomb
Nice to be getting another shooter, but I prefer the "old school" style of shooter. Games like Halo and, yes, even COD, at least COD 4 and Modern Warefare 2... idk what they're doing these days.
Anyway, for a non-Splatoon game, just give me deathmatch, team deathmatch, and like, king of the hill and such. Not a fan of this wait for 5 minutes for a match, run around looking for guns for 10 minutes, get sniped, ONCE game over, nonsense.
I'm really keen for this game. People can winge all they like about release dates changing but I'd rather it be a good game on release than come out early with loads of bugs.
To clarify... Some modes will be free to play and you can pay to unlock the full game.
And just like that, a game I had no previous interest in is now in my radar. If it plays anything like Splatoon 2 I'll be sure to try it.
@Yhdekskymmenen why do they have to omit motion options? Why don't you just not use them, ignore them even? People that like the option can't have motion controls in a game because you don't approve?
'Battle Royale Newcomer Crazy Justice Will Support "Splatoon-Style Motion Controls"'
That was already known a long time ago. It's literally the only reason I pledged for the crowdfunding campaign back in November.
Why do you insist on imprecise and clunky stick controls everywhere? Why do you insist gyro aim has anything to do with Mario Party instead of just trying it?
You obviously don't know what you're talking about (because otherwise you wouldn't have thrown that nonsensical Mario Party reference in there). Gyro aim is very similar to mouse aim - and these are the only two acceptable aiming methods for a shooter for me (and many others).
And guess what: consoles don't support mice out of the box.
@Heavyarms55 Doom isn't quite Halo, but it's a good quality MP Shooter.
I do agree though, if I was a budding Dev looking for success by copying other titles, I'd be copying Halo right now. Not only has the Gameplay never been on Nintendo or PS, but the old school gameplay isn't even on Xbox right now either (not properly anyway. The MCC is good but the community abandoned the title after it was butchered). You'd at least have a chance to find an audience that isn't already bombarded by clones.
Splatoon-style? Meaning gyro mixed with dual analog? Well, that sucks! What's the point of giving a shooter motion controls if you're still going to shoehorn us into a stupid dual analog control scheme?! Motion controls in a shooter are meant to replace and surpass dual analog, not fuse with that archaic mess!
@RichardZ Exactly what I meant. You can't play the game normally if it has tilt controls because you'll be at disadvantage if you don't use them. Not everyone likes gimmicky gameplay, however, so putting it everywhere is just stupid.
What? Including controlls which you admit are better is stupid? @Yhdekskymmenen
