Today, Indie Developer Mass Creation released new gameplay for their upcoming beat-em-up Shing! In the video above, Game Director Greg Kurek goes over new enemies, the combat, and the teamwork involved in Shing!
Shing! delivers a classic beat ’em up experience that stays true to what fans love about the genre while adding a few twists of its own. Shing!’s unique control style is designed around the right analog stick, letting you pull off angled slices, counters, aerials and more with freestyle flicks and spins. Learning to block and parry effectively will help keep you alive in the heat of battle, while special buffs around the environment will give you incredible active and passive buffs to unleash on foes.
Your band of wisecracking warriors each have their own strengths, and you can swap between them at any time in an instant to extend combos, revive allies, or conserve power-ups for later use. Throughout the adventure, you’ll discover thrilling challenge rooms where you can test your skills and reflexes in ultra-hard scenarios. There are also special lore rooms where you can spend time getting to better know your party members, as well as the distinct world of anime-inspired visuals and music that is Shing!
Shing! is expected to launch later this summer on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Linux.
