I’m always game for a new rhythm experience. I loved titles like Theatrhythm and Rhythm Heaven in the past. But when you take a musically focused game and put it in a post apocalyptic setting, then you officially have my attention. That game is none other than Double Kick Heroes. It’s been on my radar for a while now. The good news is, there’s not much longer we all have to wait! Double Kick Heroes is slated to release for PC, Switch and Xbox, coming to Switch August 13th. Switch fans will also have the option to air drum with their Joy-Con, if you’re into that sort of thing.
What matters most is Double Kick Heroes is a beautiful looking title with style to spare. If you’re interested in the genre, get ready starting in just a couple short weeks. And find more details from the press release below!
Today in Angoulême, France, freshly plucked from the fiery depths of the deepest darkest abyss, Headbang Club is pleased to announce that Double Kick Heroes will be released on August 13th on Nintendo Switch and Steam, to follow on Game Pass for PC and Xbox One and the Xbox and Microsoft Store on the 28th, with pre-orders opening up on the 5th of August for Nintendo Switch and Xbox one.
It’s time to jump out of the mosh-pit and into your Gundillac, Sheila, and take on the baddest of badasses and survive in this metal moshing and mayhemic post-apocalyptic nightmarish wasteland.
“Man, it’s been a long journey but we’re pumped to be finally sharing Double Kick Heroes with you all” David Elahee – Headbang Club. “We hope that you love our game as much as we do and enjoy the kick-ass soundtrack we’ve put together to celebrate all things metal. We can’t wait for people to try out air controls for Nintendo Switch which is a heap load of metallic fun, but please drum responsibly”.
