Pocket Rumble finally has a release date – July 5th
Announced all the way back in February 2017, the SNK inspired fighter Pocket Rumble is finally releasing and you won’t have to wait too much longer for it.
Pocket Rumble will release on the Switch eShop on July 5th. The game is inspired by SNK’s fighting games from the Neo Geo Pocket Color.
Pocket Rumble is a streamlined, beginner-friendly 2D fighting game inspired by SNK’s classic fighters on the Neo Geo Pocket Color. It retains all the gameplay elements that make traditional fighters great, but reduces the level of execution and memorization necessary to the absolute minimum.
Experienced players will be able to learn the game fast and then focus on deeper elements of strategy and mind-games, whilst new players can learn the ins and outs of fighting games without being overwhelmed, allowing everyone to hone their skills to a competitive level without too much grinding in training mode!
The game features a diverse cast of characters, each with their own unique meter and mechanics. There’s the cutesy Keiko who wields a demonic detonating cat called Q, to the grappler Subject 11 who harnesses psychokinetic powers to toss enemies like ragdolls, and ninja cowboy Hector, who uses a katana to keep his opponents at bay, but be careful, his specials also cost life-points, which must be restored using his meter.
