Forget the AAA superstars in those other brawlers, because Bounty Battle is shining a spotlight on your favourite characters from the indie scene like the mighty Juan Aguacate and Owlboy’s Otus. So who’s your money on now that it’s available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC?
A collaboration between Merge Games and Dark Screen Games, Bounty Battle is a 1-4 player 2D fighting game in which a total of 30 characters from the world of indies are coming together for the ultimate showdown. Furthermore, there’s a host of game modes to get stuck into, including Tournament, Versus, Challenge Mode, Tutorial and Training Room – the latter of which comes in handy for perfecting your skills.
