Bare Butt Boxing tells you exactly what the basic premise is from the name alone. A group of aliens, fascinated by boxing, travel to Earth to participate in their favourite sport. The problem is, they're not accustomed to any of the rules or laws of the planet, so baring their posteriors for all to see, they attempt to replicate their favourite boxers on Earth - with chaotic results.
For a studio who are associated with creating visual effects for games like Valorant, Fortnite, Godfall, and more, this is a pretty stark departure from previous experience, but it looks like a right romp!
Here are some more details from the press release that followed yesterday's presentation:
Romp around in 6-player free-for-all brawls in colorful locations across the globe. Line up the perfect charged punch to send friends sailing across the stage, or into other fighters for chain reactions of damage. Rise to glory in local and online multiplayer across many arenas set in vibrant cities, lush jungles, and intergalactic spaceships.
Think with your butt, but also your head: traps, pitfalls, and other silly hazards strewn across every level can spell an instant KO. Dash for power-ups like electric fists to shock and stun, sticky bombs for explosive repercussions, and invulnerability. Deck out characters with cool customizations unlocked solely through playing and stand atop the leaderboards, leaving no ifs, ands, or butts on who’s the champ.
A party brawler at heart, Bare Butt Boxing allows players of all skill levels to compete. Careful strategies can win the day, but a lucky hit from any player can start a chain reaction of chaos and frantic joy, putting a smile on even the most battle-hardened fighter.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate should be quaking in its boots right now, as this physics-based boxer just looks like it will eat away the hours if you get together with friends - either in-person or online.
We'll have to wait a little while to get our hands on the game, however, as Bare Butt Boxing is a little shy and needs some time before it can bare all. The game is coming to Switch next year, but PC players will be able to have a go a little earlier as the team plan to flash a little bit of the game via Steam Early Access towards the end of the year.
For now, you can keep an eye on the game's website for any updates or just have a look at some of the glorious butts that this game has to offer. Don't worry; we won't tell anyone.
Are you excited to get cracking with Bare Butt Boxing when it launches next year? Let us know in the comments!
