Due out in Q1 2020.

Shing!

Polish developer Mass Creation will release beat ’em up action game Shing! for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam in Q1 2020, the studio announced.

Shing! brings back the arcade beat ’em up gameplay and supercharges it with crazy stylish action and intuitive stick-based controls. Free-flowing combos, outstanding mobility, parries, counters, aerial combat and the ability to instantly switch between four playable characters make Shing! a real treat for any sidescrolling beat’em’up fan.

Take control of four Yokai hunters—deadly warriors tasked with defending the realm from a sudden onslaught of mythical beasts. While trying to recover the legendary Starseed, they will trek through crowded cities bathed in neon light, ash-covered ruins of ancient civilizations, noxious swamps covered in mist, and many other exotic locations.

Band together in four-player local and online co-op to slice up a horde of bloodthirsty demons, overcome epic bosses, and master the most exciting and immersive beat-em-up combat system ever!
