punch club 2 keyart

It’s been six long years since we had the chance to prove ourselves in the Punch Club, but finally the teams at Lazy Bear Games and tinyBuild are ready to start hitting hard, confirming Punch Club 2 for launch later in 2023. 

Coming to Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC (Steam, Epic, GOG), later in 2023 will be Punch Club 2, the follow-up to 2017 original Punch Club. 

A gritty, humorous, 1980’s-based cyberpunk-themed boxing simulation game, Punch Club 2 will focus on some serious future fighting. 

It’s been some twenty years since a nameless cool guy punched the big bad and everyone was really happy or something. But now it’s time to welcome the future: it’s corrupt, sea shells have replaced toilet rolls, and everything’s cyberpunk now. Walk the same, but now neon, streets Roy did as you’re thrown into an adventure filled with hilarity, 80’s nostalgia, and punching.

You should expect even more punching than before as the mean streets of the under-city are a disease, but you could be the cure. Fighting is the only way to blow off steam and earn valuable good person points, which you’re going to need, kid.

Life in the rat race is fast-paced, time-consuming, and requires effective management to survive, and Punch Club 2 is the same! See, in this simulation game you’ll get to manage your time and funds, whilst climbing to the top of the fighting leagues, solving crimes, working for the police, mob, mafia, and about anyone else you cross paths with. Whilst nothing beats good old-fashioned blood, sweat, and tears, neuro training and illegal software sure sound tempting. Even if there is a slight risk you’ll be exposed as a fraud and your last brain cell will pack up and leave.

Completing quests will give you access to new fighting schools, moves, dollars, good person points, and even the Lion Queen on VHS! Multiple branching storylines are impacted by your moral choices, so do the right thing. 

The key features of Punch Club 2 include:

  • Become a Champion Fighter – Punch, kick and cheat your way through, if you want. Becoming the best damn fighter ain’t easy; it takes time, dedication, dollars, and training! Increase your stats and techniques, plan your match, and create your own incredibly awesome school of fighting!
  • Manage… Everything – Oversee everything from precious hours in the day to finances, whilst climbing to the top of the fighting leagues, solving crimes, working for the police, mob, mafia, and about anyone else you cross paths with. Perfect your strategy to become the best damn fighter this city has ever seen.
  • Story-Rich Narrative – Fully developed NPCs with interesting personalities and stories accompany a variety of branching story paths to explore. The stakes of moral choices impact story outcomes!
  • 80’s Nostalgia – This fighting management sim provides a gritty throwback into an 80’s inspired future. Enjoy the pure adrenaline-fuelled awesomeness of the ’80s with humour, quotes, and good old bone-crunching action!
  • Cyberpunk Aesthetic – The alluring pixel art style with a vibrant neon futuristic colour palette and captivating visuals showcase a unique perspective of a cyberpunk future.

We’ll keep you looped as Punch Club 2 builds to release on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and PC later in the year.
