Team Reptile recently unveiled that its fast-paced sequel to Lethal League will be heading to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on July 12, with a new Nintendo Switch trailer to show for fans. Lethal League Blaze will include a vast amount of improvements to the original as well as a contributing soundtrack by the legendary Hideki Naganuma.

Lethal League Blaze is the sequel to the popular projectile-fighting game Lethal League, released on steam October 24th 2018 and Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and Xbox One July 12th 2019. Known for it’s ridiculous speeds and hitstun, the original game was intense to watch and amassed tens of millions of views on youtube. This time around there will be more characters at launch, doubling those of the last game. There’s also new game modes to choose from, like the event-based story mode and something called Lethal Volley.

Team Reptile upped their game with improved, 3D graphics, but the game still maintains the extreme, high speed experience of the original Lethal League. Gameplay has also seen additions, with a grab move that allows you to pitch the ball back and directly counter your opponent’s defense. The new HP setting will see you not instantly dying to the slowest speeds anymore. And of course there will be lots of hidden tricks for each character.

Among the newcomers are Jet, a bubbly jetpacked inline skater. Grid, an electro mafioso who doesn’t hold punches and Nitro, an ex-cop vigilante who deals out justice with his giant cuff-gun. What’s more, the boss of the previous installment, Doombox, will return as a fully playable character in Lethal League Blaze. When it comes to the soundtrack, Klaus Veen will be returning with a remix of the infamous Ordinary Days. Frank Klepacki of Command and Conquer fame is contributing a track and Moscow based producer Pixelord joined the fray as well. Then there is also Hideki Naganuma from Jet Set Radio fame.
