No folks it’s not April Fool, and I didn’t wake up from a fever dream. UPPERS has a release date on Steam. A lot of us had given up hope on this seeing an actual release, but XSEED Games has come through and the game will release on Steam on October 21, 2020.
For those not in the know UPPERS is a top down beat em up from Senran Kagura creator Kenichiro Takaki. The game released on the PlayStation Vita way back in 2016. The new Steam version will offer updated graphics and a bonus character, Daidoji-senpai of the Senran Kagura series.
Here is more about the game from the Steam Page:
Fully Remastered & Multi-Language Support!
Experience the game like never before fully remastered in 1080p, 60FPS with native support for even higher resolutions and offers full text localisation for English, French, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese & Simplified Chinese.
Varied Character Roster
Control two of thirteen varied fighters each with their own fiery combos and bodacious finishing moves. From Kickboxing to Martial Arts, Kenka and Wrestling, each fighter brings their A-game to the show!
Explosive, Action-Packed Combat!
Please your streetside fans and charge your VOLTAGE! RISE-UP and augment your combos with even more spectacle and fighting style before unleashing your fury with the Upper Rush – pummeling your opponent with hundreds of attacks before your fans’ very eyes! Perhaps your adoring fans will reward you handsomely by showing you their favorite pair of underwear!
Crazy Environmental Interactions
Utilise the environment to your advantage, throw cars, throw bicycles, throw motorbikes or choose to slam-dunk your opponent into a manhole or uppercut him into a passing by Helicopter – the possibilities are both ludicrous and crazy!
