Free Update to Frantic One-Bullet Gunfight Party Game Guilt Battle Arena
Version 3.0 Coming to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC
VANCOUVER – August 2, 2018 – Guilt Battle Arena, the frantic one-bullet gunfight party game with local multiplayer for up to four people from publisher Forward XP and developer Invincible Cat, today receives version 3.0 as a free update to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam.
In this hyper-cute couch-competitive game, each player has a gun with only one bullet. After firing it, the only way to get it back is to go pick it up, dodging shots all the while. Guilt Battle Arena’s two-button controls make it accessible for anyone, and its heart-thumping action guarantees nonstop fun.
Guilt Battle Arena returns with six new game modes in version 3.0, bringing the total to 13 and offering twice the content for solo play and local multiplayer. Fight through a gauntlet in Cup mode – alone or with three friends – and try to unlock all the medals. Add insult to injury in Heart Stealer mode by taking enemies’ hearts to heal when they’re defeated. Battle alongside a pet in Alien Pet mode, where one character’s gun is swapped with a damage-dealing creature.
Each match in Guilt Battle Arena brings even more shenanigans thanks to four new modifiers – Short Range, Low Gravity, Fast Bullet, and Shoot Behind – bringing the total to 10! Combine multiple modifiers to shake up matches and add flair to kills. Use Low Gravity with Trampoline to simulate fighting in space! Take customization even further with up to 79 insanely adorable costumes for the cartoonish characters.
Those who want to take a breather from competition can set out to defeat the Dreadful Judge and his minions by unlocking levels in Horde mode. Up to two players battle increasingly chaotic streams of enemies to beat your high score and earn bragging rights.
"Guilt Battle Arena is a true learning experience for me, and I’ve loved hearing what people have to say about it," said Tim Verrouil, sole developer at Invincible Cat. "By implementing that feedback, I’ve made this new version into something I can’t wait to show everyone."
Guilt Battle Arena is available in English, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, German, Italian, Russian, Polish, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese on the Nintendo eShop, PlayStation Network, Microsoft Store, and Steam for $9.99 USD. Version 3 releases as a free update for those who already own the game on August 2.
