Raz Games’ Boxing Champs is now on the Nintendo Switch. Originally released on Steam, the game mixes top-down arcade gameplay with more traditional boxing mechanics.
Boxing Champs features full player control over punch selection, combinations, and knockouts. The game also allows players to challenge friends in local multiplayer (online is in the works) or in a full-blown Career mode with 30 preset characters and short three-round bouts. Custom boxers are supported as well, thanks to a robust customization system packed with 70+ hairstyles, hair color, body color, body type, gloves, shorts, and boxer stats.
Finally, Boxing Champs features multiple arenas and four different champions that stand between players and the unified title. At the end of the road, the goal is to unify the titles and become the undisputed World Champion.
Chris Razmovski, founder of Raz Games, talks about the game and inspiration:
“Like most of us who grew up in the ‘80s with an NES, I always dreamed of becoming a game developer. It won’t come as a surprise that Nintendo’s Punch-Out!! was my first boxing game as a young boy. I now get to return the favor with Boxing Champs.”
