Platform Fighter Brawlhalla Closed Beta Sign-Ups Available on PS4

Platform fighters have been something of a rarity, with new Smash Bros. titles only releasing once a console generation, and any competitors often receiving little fanfare upon their arrival.

Blue Mammoth Games is hoping to change that with their free-to-play title Brawlhalla, which features hand-drawn animations, local and online multiplayer and weekly tournaments. To get a more proper sense for the game and its varied character roster, check out the trailer below, or sign up for the closed beta on PS4, which will be kicking off shortly.

In addition to PS4, Brawlhalla is currently available as an Early Access title on PC, with plans for a full release on both platforms later this year. For more on the 2D fighter, check out our preview from PAX East, three years after its debut at the same event.
