Pass the Punch PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Sumo Digital sure has its fingers in a lot of pies, doesn't it? Not only is it working on all kinds of support work for various publishers, it's busy making its very own titles too. Snake Pass was a pleasant surprise when it slithered onto PlayStation 4 a couple of years ago, and now the studio returns with another original property. Pass the Punch is a 2D beat 'em up with visuals inspired by 90s cartoons.

"Pass The Punch follows the story of Rush, a resident of New Atlas, as she fights the dastardly villains King Crab and Red Velvet, who are hell-bent turning Rush’s favourite hangouts into lifeless, corporate franchises," reads the press release. "It’s up to Rush and her three friends to claim back their city for the people!"

The four playable characters of course all have their own unique abilities and attacks, and you can play alone or in two-player local co-op. The game gets its title from the ability to combine the powers of two characters, and each combination has a different result. The concept is a simple one, and we need to see some gameplay, but it sounds like a solid enough idea to us.

Pass the Punch is due out on PS4 later this year. What do you think? Don't beat each other up in the comments below.
