The big surprise, from our point of view, is the list of platforms. It’s coming to Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X | S, and PC in 2022. Yes, the big missing platform is
Stadiums Switch. We don’t know why, frankly, there is nothing in this trailer that features it as a game that cannot run on Nintendo’s system, and it arrives on the latest generation systems from Microsoft and Sony. It also seems like a game well suited to the Switch audience, but for now, it skips the hybrid platform.
As you can also see in the trailer, it will be free, making us think a bit of Ubisoft’s. Brawlhalla but with the main Warner Bros. IP addresses. As you can see, it is probably targeting a young / cartoon audience, with a particular focus on animation characters or iterations. The developer is a newcomer Player’s first games – this is their first release but the studio cites the presence of several industry veterans.
So there you go, the Warner Bros. takes on the platform combat genre. Let us know what you think of the reveal, and of course that it doesn’t appear to be coming to Switch.
