We have reworked all character models and stages, tweaked visuals and drove over the code with a bulldozer a couple of times to vastly improve performance on Nintendo Switch in both docked and handheld mode. A 1v1 matchmaking mode is added for the competitively minded among a myriad of other fixes. Here’s the full list:
Added 1v1 online mode
Fixed certain un-unlockable outfits
Fixed memory leaks
Higher resolution for docked mode
Correct system language on first start
Character model fixes
Fixed unnecessary server logouts
Tokyo Game Show trip
Part of the team just returned from a trip to Japan. Showing Blaze at Tokyo Game Show and being there while the boxed version released in stores was a blast! Turns out that the Japanese fans are just as hyped up as the fans from everywhere else. The team got showered with gifts, hosted a tournament at the Dutch Embassy, did interviews and had an idol group play our game (peak Japanese right there). We even bought our own game too!
Physical releases are still pretty relevant in the land of the rising sun and Dion has never hidden the fact that he gets a lot of inspiration from Japanese creators. For these reasons it made sense to do a Japan-exclusive special edition for Switch and PS4. However, since the language can be switched ingame and they’re both region free, you can still buy the box from abroad, get the goodies and play it as you would normally. It contains the game, a sticker, an artbooklet and a little Candyman keychain. I’d say it’s a must for collectors.
The Shadow Surge
This other upcoming uptown update will bring along the optimizations from the Nintendo Switch patch WITH of course the boyest of boys, Dust & Ashes. They will, like the rest of the cast, have alternate outfits to unlock and we’re happy to tease one of them today!
Are you into voice acting? Do you know a cat who’s into voice acting? We’ve decided to do open auditions for the latest Blaze character, Dust. This is the chance to get involved with the Lethal League! The info to enter can be found here.
Keep in mind, you’re required to have a decent recording mic. But it IS a paid gig. So give it a shot if you have the conviction and the gear! The deadline is 5 September.
We were pretty blown away at the response, turns out we sold out in 2 hours! We might have to consider a second batch if that many people missed out on it. In any case, we’re preparing to send them out so HANG TIGHT. BTW If you want to have your poster signed, send a quick DM with your info to @RemmersTim
Sentenced to death and hanged. In his final moment he was hit by lightning. The word ‘Dust’ echoed in his mind as he was thrown into a state of limbo between life and death. His shadow was split from his body and turned into an entity called Ashes. Dust carries with him a watch that stopped on the exact time of his execution.
The Shadow Surge Update
The boyos are not fully assembled yet, so you’ll have to wait for the ‘Shadow Surge’ update to drop before you can start playing with them. We’ll be showing more stuff that we’ll add in that update in the coming weeks. This will include the changes and optimizations we made for the console version of the game, which means the game will run better on Steam as well (but we have a good hunch that existing mods will break and need a workaround).
Speaking of consoles, when can they expect the Shadow Surge update? Due to the strict patching guidelines on game consoles it won’t be simultaneous. The Nintendo Switch version is still scheduled to get the optimizations patch first after all!
We’re doing a limited Lethal League Poster Pack deal! We’ve got 80 of these babies lined up for you to get your dirty hands on.
Lethal League Blaze is out on Switch, PS4 and Xbox One!
Switch users can also download a free demo on the Nintendo eShop. Tell your Nintendo homies to check it out!
Japan will see a physical version for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 published by Amuzio. It supports all languages just like the digital versions and use the one from your system settings. You can get it worldwide on Amazon!
You can buy a limited Lethal League Poster Pack deal starting next week!
This pack contains two Team Reptile game flyers, one A2 Lethal League poster size and one A1 Lethal League Blaze Poster, both designed by the famed illustrator Kudaman.
We will send out only 80 of these boyos internationally. Orders open up next Monday and close on September 4th, so don’t hesitate too long! Head over to The Official Discord to stay updated.
This other thing
Then there’s this other thing happening next Monday…
Coming August 19 there will emerge a shade from the dusty plains of southern Shine City. The reveal should happen at exactly 17:00 CEST. The man said he’ll do his best to be on time, it seems his watch is not working correctly anymore.
