Brawlout (Switch) patch notes

2.0.0 (21 March 2019)

The Beheaded from Dead Cells is here!

Dead Cells respawns in Brawlout.

New Stage: Prisoner’s Quarters

The Beheaded comes with its own stage, the iconic ‘Prisoner’s Quarters’, their favorite respawn point. A pair of teleporters on each side make the battles both strategic and even more frantic.

This new stage features the original score ‘Prisoner’s Awakening’ by the talented Motion Twin composer, Yoann Laulan.

New Single Player ‘Trials’ Mode

Get ready for the ultimate Brawlout challenge! Fight your way through a variety of team battles, 1v1’s, bonus modes and menacing, stage-filling bosses while collecting powerful perks along the way to even the odds! Do you have what it takes to pass the Trials?

New Online Modes

We reworked the online matchmaking and lobby systems! Online play is now separated into Ranked Matchmaking and Online Lobbies to make it easier to find the kind of fight you’re looking for! 4-player FFA, Team Matches and Party Mode are now all available to play with the new public lobby system!

Gameplay Tweaks

Greatly improved AI

The Trials mode would be no fun without a challenging AI, now would it? We made sure the CPU characters now do their best to put up a great fight, recover from off-stage, evaluate the tricky platforms better, and maybe even defeat you.

Teching tweaks

The window for teching has been increased from 8 to 11 frames, and the lockout penalty for missing a tech has been decreased from 48 frames to 30. You can now also tech 2 frames after touching the ground.

Adjusted Knockback Formula

All characters behave the same when knocked back, but with the new formula we avoided cases where it would take a lot of effort (over 250% damage) to knock out heavy characters, like Acolyte. Now, over 150% damage, most characters start flying offstage around the same way.

Improved Spot Dodge Timing

Spot Dodge now has a bit more end lag, to make spamming it a much less viable option for defense.

Yooka-Laylee Joins the Fight!

With a handful of devastating options for dealing with opponents above them and Yooka's ability to eat and fire back projectiles, we see Yooka and Laylee as a character with great doubles potential, as well as the tools to be incredibly disruptive against players who rely too much on projectiles.

New Stage: Tribalstack Tropics

The first Grand Tome of Yooka-Laylee comes to Brawlout, complete with music straight from their game! Throw down on one of the largest stages in Brawlout yet!

New Character Variants

GANCHO PUNCHO

THE TRAVELING TROUBADOUR

Rather than becoming a wrestler, this Paco's passion was for music. Now nicknamed Gancho Puncho by his adoring public, this mariachi is always on the move.

STING'RA

THE GUARDIAN OF THE HIVE

Sting'ra is the matriarch of a underground insectoid colony — their large stingers being powerful enough to fell the largest threat.

RIPJACK

RIP AND TEAR

Constant exposure to unstable magic has fried Ripjack's brain, turning him into a feral beast that feels no pain.

FUNKMASTER

LORD OF THE DANCE

Dressed in the finest polyester and with a luscious afro, the Funkmaster would dazzle audiences with his amazing moves.

Party Game Modes

Bring your friends together in Party Mode! Play a series of quick matches, each with their own unique win conditions!

Golden Belt

King of the Hill with a twist! Stay close to the belt to capture it faster, then hold the belt for as long as you can or until your golden meter is filled to win!

Plague

A terrible plague follows the nearest player, until it infects them, dealing damage over time. Don't let the infected hit you or they'll pass the plague on to you! First to eliminate 3 opponents wins.

Sudden Death

Everyone starts with 300% damage and with just enough meter for a single rage burst. The player with most kills in 1 minute wins.

Coin Mania

Collect all the gold coins and watch your back! Taking hits or getting K.O.ed will cause you to lose them! Player with most coins when time runs out wins.

Bomber Blast

All players keep dropping bombs, even after they're out of stocks! Last player alive wins.

Greatly Improved Loading Times

We've restructured quite a bit behind the scenes to noticeably improve loading times vs. version 1.3.

New Unlock System

New Gear Items

Many cosmetics can now be found in the Fluffy Pinata, which replaces the Brawler Pinata.

Universal Gameplay Changes

Charge Attacks

Ledge Grabs and Ledge Hanging tweaks

The ledge has been changed based on player feedback to make it a bit more interesting and to give players more options when playing around it. Maneuvers such as ledgedashes are now possible.
