XSEED Games and Marvelous Europe Team Up to Unleash the Action-Packed Brawler
Torrance, Calif. – October 21, 2020 – XSEED Games, the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., jointly announced with Marvelous Europe today that they have opened the doors to Last Resort Island and launched UPPERS, the over-the-top beat-em-up from Honey∞Parade Games, for Windows PC via Steam. The explosive brawler set in a world where the strong rule and the crowds go wild for street fights released with a 15% launch week discount off both the standard edition, normally priced at $29.99, €29.99, and £24.99, and the Digital Deluxe Edition normally priced at $39.99, €39.99, and £34.99. The Digital Deluxe Edition of UPPERS includes the digital soundtrack with 46 pulse-pounding tracks and a digital version of the art book featuring character designs from acclaimed designer Hiroaki Hashimoto. Both standard and Digital Deluxe versions of the PC release will include all previously released DLC at no additional cost, including bonus playable character Daidoji from the SENRAN KAGURA series. To celebrate its launch, XSEED Games is planning to run a special giveaway for physical versions of the soundtrack and art book in limited numbers via their social channels. These items will be made available for sale individually from XSEED Games’ online store in the near future.
Originally released on the PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system in 2016, UPPERS makes its PC debut with a full digital remaster supporting 60 frames per second and high resolution formats to show off every bone-crunching frame and pixel. Each combatant on Last Resort Island brings their unique style to the fight and, in addition to their fists and feet, can use the environment around them as a weapon, pummeling opponents into submission before finishing them off by slam dunking them into a manhole or throwing them into a helicopter. Impressing the “Queens,” their adoring female support characters, and fans watching players beat-down their opponents can even lead to additional power-ups! Featuring the original Japanese text and voiceovers, the PC version also comes with full English, French, Korean, and Simplified and Traditional Chinese text translations.
Set on Last Resort Island, a brutal place where the strong reign supreme, UPPERS puts players in control of up to 13 characters who engage in combat against battle-hungry punks who freely stalk the island looking for trouble. These fighters are accompanied by a squad of thrill-seeking girls determined to see their favorite fighter as the victor. Follow the multi-layered story of violence, betrayal, and redemption as these brawlers fight to be the strongest on Last Resort Island.
Each character is equipped with a unique fighting style and special combos, ranging from rugged street brawlers and wrestlers to trained martial artists. The more characters pummel their enemies, the more popular they will become with fans, earning power ups to help them stand victorious in street battles. The girls also issue challenges in return for reward bonuses, which can be used in the in-game shop and gym to dress up or improve characters.
Produced by Honey∞Parade Games and published by XSEED Games globally on PC in close partnership with Marvelous Europe, UPPERS launched on October 21 on Windows PC via Steam. The base game is available for $29.99, €29.99, and £24.99, while a Digital Deluxe Edition is available for $39.99, €39.99, and £34.99, both featuring a 15% launch week discount.
