Fury Unleashed Shoots Up The Switch In Early 2019
Previously known as The Badass Hero on Steam Early Access, Fury Unleashed has been announced for the Nintendo Switch. It is set to arrive in early 2019 and the art style has been completely revamped to give it more of a Metal Slug aesthetic. On top of that, local co-op has been added and a new soundtrack from the creators of tracks for The Witcher rounds out the new additions. Check out the new trailer and official press release for more information!
Fury Unleashed is a rogue-lite action-platformer set in a comic book universe. Experience fast-paced hit-and-run gameplay and never do the same thing twice, thanks to procedurally generated levels and random items – all in highly refined, modern, hi-res 2D art.
Somehow, chaos has entered the comic book multiverse and your whole world has gone nuts! That’s how your story starts: you come from a long-gone era and were once a great hero, but now things have gone bad – your powers have been lost! Your quest is simple, yet deadly: you need to write your story anew and relive your greatest accomplishments. Order will be restored if, and only if, you prove that you are the most furious among the heroes out there.
Your guns are your best friends, and ink is the new gold – collect it from defeated enemies to upgrade your hero. The more dynamic and forceful your play style, the greater the rewards! There is always a cost, though. Stay focused at all times or you will die sooner than you think.
Oh, and keep an eye on those secret rooms, as what you find there might be quite a surprise. Even for such a tough fighter as yourself.
