The upcoming tokusatsu-themed video game GigaBash has announced a new “Mayhem Mode” and upcoming free demo.
Created by the Malaysian-based Passion Republic Games, Gigabash is a multiplayer arena brawler inspired by classic kaiju movies. In its most recent press release, Passion Republic released a new trailer showcasing the game’s couch co-op “Mayhem Mode”. They also announced a free demo that’s running as part of the Steam Next Fest, from Feb 21st-28th. GigaBash is coming to PC via Steam and Epic, PS4 and PS5 in 2022.
In this new Mayhem Mode, up to 4 players can pick from a collection of minigames via local play. It’s designed to be “easy to pick up, fun to watch, and more fun to play”.
Mayhem Mode will be included in the free demo at the upcoming Steam Next Fest, which begins February 21, alongside Online Mode where players can challenge each other in Free-For-All, Teamplay, or Duel, battling against AI, and Couch Play.
The Demo will also be available on Epic Games Store on the same date. Players on both platforms will get to battle each other in Online Play.
The devs will also host 2 live streams on Steam during the Next Fest to showcase the game:
- Day 1: Let’s Hang Out with the Devs! 21/2 (Mon) at 9PM(PST)
- Day 3: Tournament: Duel of Devs! 23/2 (Wed) at 9PM(PST)
GigaBash combines the chaos and creativity of titles like Power Stone, Super Smash Bros, and War of the Monsters with the jaw-dropping scale of classic Kaiju movies. Choose from a roster of unique characters of Titans and Heroes, each with their own skills and playstyle! Trade fistful blows with up to 4-players, summon lightning from the heavens, throw office buildings at your friends, or roll a whole district (and your enemies) into a single massive snowball. Wreak enough havoc and you’ll evolve into your final form, the terrifyingly titanic S-Class.
Choose from a wide variety of maps and locales as your battleground; each of them has its own unique map mechanic. Fight your foes in densely populated cityscapes, a holiday beach resort next to an active volcano, an industrial city in the middle of Siberia, and more! Got destroyed by another player in the game? Don’t put down your controller just yet! Each locale has its own unique post-death mechanic. Stay in the game and fire an orbital cannon or drop a meteor to exact revenge on the enemy responsible for your early defeat.
