If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.
Developer Pocket Trap and publisher Humble Games have announced that Dodgeball Academia will be released on August 5 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
In addition, we have also been treated to a new trailer that showcases the story-lore and some epic gameplay moments, which features catching dodgeballs and using special abilities to get the upper hand on your opponents.
Dodgeball Academia follows the sporting endeavours of Otto, a young boy with a burning desire to become the greatest dodgeball brawler around the school grounds. You progress through eight episodes where the art of dodgeball will forge close friendships and fierce rivalries. In stereotypical RPG fashion, there will also be main quests, side quests and school mini-games to encounter throughout the campus. Alongside this, there will be many upgrades and unlockables to help expand your dodgeball team to rule the playground with an iron ball.
The dodgeball skirmishes will feature a unique fighting system and will not hold back on any counter strikes with challenging enemies and bosses to take out. You will also be able to fight with a friend in local versus mode, which could lead to some very competitive dodgeball moments.
Will you be battling it out to be the dodgeball champion of the schoolyard?
