Gang Beasts: Out Now For The Nintendo Switch

Gang Beasts’ Physics-Based Brawling Finally Lands On The Switch


Gang Beasts

Ever wanted to go to work and challenge your boss to a fight atop a blimp, taking out years of frustration at their tyrannical ways? Well, you’re in luck because at long last the developers at Boanloaf and the publishers over at Skybound Games have brought physics-based brawler, Gang Beasts, to the Nintendo Switch. This means yes, you can now play Gang Beasts on the go via Nintendo’s hybrid machine and show your boss who really is boss should you so choose!

Players picking this up on the Switch can expect access to all the content that has been developed for Gang Beasts since players first took to the whacky streets of Beef City back in 2014. That means players have 21 precarious stages to settle scores on, and hundreds of cosmetic customization options which can be used to look trendy whilst laying the smackdown. Local and online multiplayer is also supported, whether you want to team up with your friends to take on rival gangs, or settle old grudges amongst you and your buddies in Gang Beasts’ free for all mode, Melee.

At the moment, Gang Beasts is only available via the Nintendo eShop; priced at $29.99. For those physical media addicts out there, you may want to consider holding off until December 7th, when you’ll be able to get your hands on the physical version, costing $34.99, which comes bundled with exclusive collectible stickers, only available with the physical version of the game. If the physical version takes your fancy and you want to be sure you secure a copy come December 7th, keep an eye out on the Gang Beasts  Switch website where further details will be coming soon as to when pre-orders are expected to go live.


Will you be picking up Gang Beasts on the Switch? If you’ve already bought it on another system, do you intend on double-dipping so you can enjoy this peculiar brand of physics-based brawling on the go? Let us know in the comments down below, and if you’re undecided, then keep your eyes peeled here at Hey Poor Player for our review coming in the very near future.
