During a hefty Lethal League Match between Doombox and Sonata, Doombox suddenly transformed back into his Boombox form and spit out an indescribable entity. Sonata was taken aback at the way it crept towards her when it suddenly leaped at her. Sonata’s vision faded and her mind spiralled out of consciousness… When she came to, she could feel the beat of her boomhammer flow through her veins. This is not bad at all…
The alternate version of the Stereo Overdrive Arachnida outfit is the Midnight Tinnitus:
Onto Bomb Rush Cyberfunk! We’ve been quite blown away by the amount of fanart already out there and even more so by how quickly it’s being made.
@TR_Dion: I swear they are sitting with pen and paper ready for when the ‘Dion tweets a character’ siren starts sounding
Here are some of our favourites, keep ’em coming!
Bomb Rush Cyberfunk progress
With more content leaks seeping through from the team, we’ve got some of our own work to share too!
First up: A raw, unedited Dutch interview with Dion … and you are NOT allowed to use google translate on it(?!). Proceed at your own risk.
Next is a preview of what the flip phone for navigation and messaging looks like:
And last but not least: A new environment, billboard and penguin illustrations and a new character!
The Medical Mashup update for Lethal League Blaze is on Steam! And along with it the DLC outfits for Toxic.
This is how she came upon her new equipment:
Seeing the potential in Dust & Ashes, Toxic took on an odd-job in the West Shine City Hospital to find out more about the person Dust was before his amnesia. Having found no trace of such a patient while going through the records, she instead found out about certain classified medical experiments. She didn’t care much about the subject as she did for the high tech equipment they had made for it that was supposedly stashed away in an underground South Shine City facility. In between vats filled with spinal cords that didn’t seem human, she found what she was looking for. Gear for a special occasion.
The pack has two variants:
The Nuclear Nourishment colorway. A dark nurse themed outfit with a biohazard spinal fluid injection arm.
The N. N. Second Opinion colorway. A cute twist on the Nuclear Nourishment outfit, but the needles go just as deep.

When Dice was caught by the Shine City Police in the Sewage Facility he was forced to make his escape by dropping straight down into the pipes. Now, the Sewage Facility doesn’t just contain simple waste water. Full of unspeakable toxins and experimental bacteria, Dice soon lost consciousness. Some time passed and in a stroke of luck, Latch detected his lifeless body on his Robo-Sub’s sonar. While in Latch’s care, Dice bandaged his own diseased skin and quickly fled into the darkness as if possessed by some primal instinct. He was spotted destroying his long time rival Doombox in a match not long after.
The alternate ‘cursed’ version of the Late Stage Illmatic is the Lethal Infection colorway:

We’ve been polling you on your opinions of Lethal League Blaze and character balance for over a year now. It’s time to share some results!
Since community opinions aren’t unanimous and the generated tier list has become even more crowded than before, we picked a format that reflects just how much agreement each placement has.
What’s the verdict? As numbers alone don’t paint the whole picture, we looked through all text submissions as well (you can read some public responses here) and have already decided on two balance changes for an upcoming patch:
Grid is getting his bunt out of special back
Candyman will only gain 1 special bar from chaining the candyball
There are other changes to come. Expect more info when the Dice outfits are released!
The Shadow Surge has arrived on consoles, including Dust and Ashes unlockable outfits ‘Secret King ‑ Iron Grip’ and ‘Anonymous Emperor’. And if that just ain’t enough, the DLC outfits ‘Master of the Mountain’ and ‘Master of the Plains’ are available for purchase as well.
In an attempt to find out more about his past, Raptor tracked a piece of Rex Works equipment back to Citynetics, Shine City’s biggest construction company. After infiltrating the Citynetics factory with the help of Switch, he locked himself in one of the higher offices. Scrambling through some important documents, he noticed the names of the board directors. Reginald, Edgar and Xavier Saur. A loud bang erupted from the door. The guards had him cornered. Having lost his bat along the way, Raptor grabbed what gear he could find and mowed himself through the door.
As usual the pack has two variants:
The Heavyduty R. Evolution colorway. A bright overall with warning sign colors.
The Nightmare Survivalist colorway. A fever dream inspired monster look.
The Shadow Surge Update is live! Once you boot up that sweet LLB, the new character Dust & Ashes is unlocked straight away! But before you do, listen up for the latest in Shine City.
Dust & Ashes
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.
Dust has some spicy angles, an asynchronous special using Ashes and a gameplay mechanic that allows him to float around the stage. Try holding his taunt for some slick stylo.
Special DLC outfit
We’re bringing the big guns with the first special DLC outfits ‘Master of the Mountain’ and ‘Master of the Plains’ for Dust & Ashes.
For DLC we want to do our best to create dope looks that are not out of place in the LL world, instead of your usual popular youtuber skin. If you agree and want to see more, consider dropping a dime or two to support the cause. A big thanks for playing either way!
The Master of the Mountain colorway. An orange-black mountaineering inspired look with the classic red mask.
The Master of the Plains colorway. An off white desert nomad inspired look with a black mask.
A special bird-of-legend version of Ashes for both colorways
