Super Smash Bros.-like 'Brawlout' launches on Xbox One

Brawlout is a Super Smash Bros.-like game which features a cast of unique characters, and your favorite heroes from titles like Hyper Light Drifter and Yooka-Laylee. The game runs at a blistering-fast 60 FPS and looks crisp even on a base Xbox One. However, if you want to make the most of the experience, you have to play it on Xbox One X which upgrades the resolution to 4K. That's when you can see all the amazing detail.

Brawlout is out now on Xbox One and you can purchase it for $19.99. There's also a Brawlout: Deluxe Edition (opens in new tab) available for $29.99 which includes more characters. If you ever wanted to play a Super Smash Bros.-style game, then this is your chance.

  • yes! Something the whole family can play!
  • Ugh, "base Xbox One". Consoles shouldn't be tiered. This is why I stick to PC's.
  • But PC's are even more tiered than consoles are, your point doesn't make any sense.
  • Yes, but that's the way PC's have been since I've been PC gaming in the 90's. However, my consoles (NES, SNES etc.) have always been able to play whatever's been released. There was no such thing as SNES+ etc.
  • Actually the early consoles had region locking in the form of different cartridges, a US SNES cartridge was different to a AUS cartridge. So unless you had a converter there were games that were unable to be played, which was really annoying. Later consoles it was built into the disc drives/cartridge ROM's.
  • I remember buying ram modules for some early consoles too. First thing I did when buying either a mega drive, saturn or dream cast was check out all the little upgrade slots concealed behind popable or screwed on plastic covers.
  • That makes no sense. PC has even more of a gradation. The only difference here is 1080p 60 FPS or 4K 60 FPS. You get 60 FPS either ways.
  • The success of Smash seems to be tied directly to the strength of the Nintendo roster of characters. From what I recall, PlayStation All-Stars did not do well, and I don't expect this to, either.
  • It's on a lot of platforms and is selling great from what I know. The price is the factor here.
  • Microsoft really missed this opportunity for a company that's been putting a lot of first party characters like chief, kameo, Joanna dark, conker, gears, cortana, blinx, recore, and many many more over the years. This is why Nintendo is winning. Beloved characters in one game
  • Maybe we could see them through seasonal updates?
  • The other fun thing in Smash Bros is the items, namely the hammer lol and... I didn't see any items in this trailer. Hopefully the game does have items to turn a match which makes it even more competitive. Also I'm hoping the damage meter is not limited to 100%, skilled players on smash bros can last beyond 100% damage which really raises the level of a match and especially when you get a item to chuck at your competition when they are at 200%+ damage.
  • Agreed, there is nothing so satisfying as dealing with an opponent that has managed to rack up 250%+ damage an you mange to get a hit with a thrown item and it sends them careening off the screen.
  • Nice to see them branching out to Xbox. I almost bought it on the switch but I chose to wait for Smash.
