If you’re after the ultimate side-scrolling beat ‘em up and want to play from a 2D perspective, then Kung Fury: Street Rage – Ultimate Edition is going to be for you.
Available via digital editions on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC, with a Nintendo Switch version to come, Kung Fury: Street Rage – Ultimate Edition is based on the cult-hit Kung Fury film by Laser Unicorn.
In it players can step into the shoes of their favourite Kung Fury characters, including Kung Fury, Hackerman, and David Hasselhoff, to defeat some Nazi fools in an epic side-scrolling beat ‘em up.
Kung Fury: Street Rage – Ultimate Edition includes two modes of play: a classic wave-based story mode and an endless mode. It also includes the expansions of The Arcade Strikes Back and A Day at the Beach, featuring a two-player co-op mode with all-new levels and boss battles.
The game offers five playable characters to choose from: Kung Fury, Hasselhoff, Hackermann, Triceracops, and Barbarianna, as players utilise each character’s unique set of moves and abilities to pummel their way through waves of enemies, collect power-ups, and unleash various weapons found throughout each level.
“I had an awesome time working with the Hello There Games Team. They immediately understood my vision and always came up with cool and strong ideas which made the game better. Their passion for game development is seriously contagious and inspiring. I’m super stoked to build an arcade machine with our game, it’s like the perfect cherry on top of this amazing experience working with such a talented and dedicated team” – Mr. Kung Fury, David Sandberg
