Stumbled across this game on Reddit earlier called Strikers Edge. The developer team Playdius Games popped the trailer today for it and it looks pretty cool. No plans to do some crazy analysis or preview in this article, but I thought it was cool enough to share!
It’s releasing on January 30, for both PC and PlayStation 4. At first it made me think of Nidhogg since I saw the one on one dueling, that they promote as similar to Dodgeball. Then I noticed it has up to 2v2s, which goes a step further than Nidhogg’s usual 1v1 action.
Anyway, check out the trailer for a good idea of how it works. It’s a whole lot of throwing spears or javelins at each other across a gap in the middle, in either 1v1 or 2v2 battles. Strikers Edge features different “strikers” aka characters with specific abilities, making things a bit more interesting than just a simple dodgeball.
It’s on Steam here currently without a price point for those looking for more info!
