Guilt Battle Arena, a local multiplayer game with versus and co-op modes, has now arrived to the ever popular Nintendo Switch arriving in Europe, Americas, and Australia. From Invincible Cat and Forward XP, one-man developer and publisher respectively, the game will receive certain upgrades from its original release via update on April. One such upgrade is the addition of bots for versus mode, allowing players to have the full experience, alone or otherwise. Another addition is that during co-op, when someone dies the game doesn’t immediately end. Instead the player becomes a ghost and can be revived. Due to the Switch release, all platforms will be priced at $9.99.
The game’s main gimmick that players can only shoot once before needing to retrieve their bullet, referred to as “rebound”. It is meant to make the player think where and how their bullet moves for not only precise shots, but only trick shots. Versus modes are 2-4 players while co-op is simply 1-2. The game also has a variety of outfits and match customization options for a better replay experience. Overall, it is meant to be a laidback and zanny experience meant for friends and family, as it only supports local co-op.
Guilt Battle Arena Couch Combat Game Arrives
On Nintendo Switch for the Americas, Europe and Australia
Now Available for $9.99 on Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC;
Free Update in April Will Add Brand New Content and Features
March 1, 2018 — Guilt Battle Arena, a frantic 2D local multiplayer and couch combat game from Invincible Cat and ForwardXP, is now available on Nintendo Switch for the Americas, Europe and Australia, following its initial launch on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC last month. To celebrate its release across all platforms, the game is currently being offered to fans for $9.99.
Guilt Battle Arena challenges players to use a single bullet to attack opponents and after firing, players must rebound their bullet after every shot. Play and shoot through raining chickens, dodge exploding cats and lead homing missiles directly to the enemy. Players can also amp up their matches with outrageous gear, including jetpacks or turn everyone invisible. Over 35 zany player costumes are unlockable through gameplay for a total of over 45 outfits to choose from.
Guilt Battle Arena features seven game modes in local multiplayer Versus where up to four players are pit against each other as they engage in combat through wacky stages and gameplay modes, including capture the flag with cannons or hot potato with a bomb! While Versus is the heart of the game, co-op gameplay is also available as an extra feature.
Guilt Battle Arena’s primary mode, Versus, allows players to showcase their elite local multiplayer skills with friends. In April, a free update to the game will introduce Bots in Versus mode so that players can enjoy the full Guilt Battle Arena experience with or without friends. The update will also debut the Battle Arena option, a new system that utilizes voting to decide between three sets of game modes and modifiers and determines what players will have to face next. There will also be a major upgrade coming to Co-op, where matches will no longer end if a player’s partner dies. Instead, the partner that died will come back as a ghost that can help their teammate. Players will also be able to give their fallen teammate hearts to resurrect them in a Co-op match.
“Guilt Battle Arena, and all the wacky levels and features, is now here for Nintendo Switch users who can play the game at home or on the go,” said Timothée Verrouil, founder of Invincible Cat. “We’ve also listened to the feedback from the community, and we are fired up to bring enhancements to Versus mode, upgrade the Co-Op features and add new content that players can look forward to next month and in future updates.”
