Swedish indie game developer, Bertil Hörberg – best known for his action platform series Gunman Clive and in more recent times Mechstermination Force – has officially announced a new “classic” style beat ’em up game launching on Nintendo Switch on 17th September.
Introducing Super Punch Patrol. Hörberg says it’s a “small game, developed mostly as a solo project during quarantine”. It’ll set players back $4.99 / € 4.99 (or your regional equivalent) and the file size is around 130 MB. The visuals, as you can see, draw inspiration from Gunman Clive, the music has been composed by Bertil’s brother, Arne Hörberg, and the sound design was done by Vile Hartman.
As shown in the trailer, there’ll be three characters to play as, two-player local co-op and even unlockable costumes. The game runs at 60 fps, displays at 1080p docked, and 720p in handheld mode. Here’s the back story:
In the year 202X crime and violence dominate the streets of Gravy City. The evil crime syndicate E.C.S. rules the city and controls most of the government and police force; only a handful officers remain unbent by corruption.
Police Chief Anders Punch decides to take desperate measures to clean up the streets. Together with his most trusted officers, Nils and Selma Snyting, he sets out to defeat the E.C.S. with only their fists.
