Rhythm fans will soon have a brand new way to tap along to the beat on Switch, as Super Dodgeball Beats will be grooving its way to the console next month.
Inspired by fan-favourites like Elite Beat Agents, Rhythm Paradise (Rhythm Heaven, for those of you in the US) and Taiko no Tatsujin, Super Dodgeball Beats is a competitive rhythm game featuring a campaign and local multiplayer. It tells the story of a group of friends living in a world where dodgeball has taken over the world of mainstream sport, so kind of like how the story works in Sushi Striker, except less sushi.
Here’s some official info for you:
Forming their own team, three failing schoolkids band together to enter their first tournament and to their surprise, winning! Now staking their claim to be National Major League champions, they’ll have to defeat teams comprised of blood-thirsty vampires, electric-infused pensioners and mutated aliens to win the title and fulfil their dreams!
Featuring a unique manga art style and 18 unique tracks that pay homage to its Japanese inspiration, fans of the rhythm / music genre are sure to find their beat in the game’s single-player story mode and local multiplayer. Engaged in an energy tug of war with the opposing team, players will need to input correctly-timed moves through classic rhythm gameplay, albeit with a twist – battling opponents with an array of powerups and super moves, from grenades to donuts!
It arrives on Switch and other platforms on 22nd August; you’ll be able to download a copy for £11.99 / $12.99 / €13.50.
