Sports Fighter KungFu Kickball Scores 2020 Nintendo Switch Release!

SYDNEY – Aug. 14, 2019 – KungFu Kickball, the team-based sports platform fighter from developer WhaleFood Games and publisher Blowfish Studios, strikes Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows PC and Mac in Q1 2020.

Square off against friends in a fantasy sport that infuses the action of soccer with martial arts. Unleash a whirlwind of kicks, punches, and magical abilities to take out the opposing team and boot the ball downfield. Score points by overpowering or outmaneuvering rival defenders and send the ball crashing into one of the gigantic bells at either end of the stadium.

KungFu Kickball makes use of minimalistic controls to create an accessible yet competitive experience. Matches are fast-paced tug-of-war-style showdowns where players switch between offensive strikes and defensive stands at the drop of a hat — or the ring of a bell. And with six stages and three player classes to choose between, every match takes on its own character.

Featuring local and online 1v1 and 2v2 multiplayer, KungFu Kickball allows for rivalries to form on the couch or over the Internet. Challenge friends, foes, and strangers alike to see which side can pull off the best maneuvers and ultimately determine who is the KungFu Kickball master.

“KungFu Kickball is a new kind of sports game that injects the high-flying action of martial arts,” said Ben Lee, co-founder, Blowfish Studios. “As fans of both sport and kung fu action, we’re having a lot of fun with this project and look forward to sharing it with everyone early next year.”

KungFu Kickball will feature support for English, Italian, French, German, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, and Simplified Chinese language options. Blowfish Studios will showcase KungFu Kickball at PAX West 2019 in Seattle from Aug. 30 through Sept. 2.
