Knockout City Gameplay Details, Release Date & Price Revealed

Knockout City, the upcoming team-based multiplayer dodgeball action game, had new details announced at today’s State of Play, including new maps, abilities, customisation options and more!

I first head about Knockout City at the Nintendo Direct a few days ago, and I didn’t think much of it. But at today’s State of Play a lot was revealed, and it got me super hyped! There’s a whole range of customisation options for your brawler, a bunch of different types of balls and abilites you can use to one up your opponents. Each map comes with a unique theme and twist to help boost your abilities. We even got a release date and a price!
