Big Boy Boxing Premieres Animated Trailer at OTK Games Expo

Smooth boxing action meets comically brutal, hand-animated pixel art at multiple summer showcases.

CALIFORNIA, United States – 4 June, 2024 – Big Boy Boxing, the energetic boss rush game developed by Soupmasters and published by Joystick Ventures, answers the bell with the premiere of its new animated trailer at OTK Games Expo, ahead of the premiere of a brand-new demo at Steam Next Fest, starting this Monday, 10 June. New trailers will also premiere at Guerrilla Collective, Future Games Show, and IGN Live. 

In the animated trailer, the protagonist showcases their skills as they dodge, duck, dip, and deliver knockout punches to claim victory against a range of the wackiest of bosses. Inspired by the Punch-Out!! series, players face off against unassuming foes like Freezy Boy, the dreaded Titanic 5000, Wild Dude, Trigger Happy, and many other adversaries in a universe dripping with slapstick gags depicted in hand-animated pixel art.

Counter a barrage of unpredictable attacks with your own personalized strikes. Train with the ever-supportive, popcorn-munching Coach Hank to learn a variety of customizable perks and abilities like the lightning-fast Thunder Punch, or take a defensive stance with the self-sustaining Healing Touch. Stay standing long enough to watch an over-dramatic comedy story unfold.

“Movement is such a crucial component of boxing,” says Martin Calander, Founder of Soupmasters, “so we exaggerated every shift in momentum in our animations. We wanted to capture that cartoonish essence with each pixel and incorporate the slapstick comedy that is so unique to Big Boy Boxing. We’re so excited to share our game with you all!”

Big Boy Boxing climbs into the ring later this year on PC via Steam with other platforms TBD. For more information on Big Boy Boxing, check out developer Soupmasters’ official website, follow Soupmasters on Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube, and join the official Discord.
