Robo Revenge Squad is coming to Switch on 17th August, bringing with it chaotic co-op robot action in which everything you find can apparently be used as a weapon. Baseball bats (obvs), fridges (natch), disco balls (er, okay) — you name it, you can use it to pummel robo-fools.
Developed by Rikodu, there's a heavy customisation element to these robotic warriors, which enables you personalise the carnage as you head into battle with your 'bot buddies.
Here's some more detailed description from the PR blurb, plus some screenshots below, but we'd recommend checking out the Switch trailer above to get a better idea of the co-op bot-battling gameplay involved.
