Dodgeball Academia is an upcoming dodgeball role-playing game. Developed by Pocket Trap, and published by Humble Games this quirky dodgeball title promises to shake up the formula of sports games by fusing RPG, cartoon animations, and story-telling elements to it. Players are invited to the court on August 5th, through Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows OS.
Dodgeball is Love, Dodgeball is Life
In a world where nothing is more important than dodgeball, building the ultimate dodgeball team in the world is a noble quest for players. Spread throughout eight chapters players will explore and unearth Dodgeball Academia’s secrets.
This beautifully designed, cartoonish dodgeball-centric series will allow players to fully explore a vast academic campus while completing main quests, side-quests, and mini-games.
Dodgeball Academia will remind players of Pokemon games, mainly because of its artwork, colorful world, and camera angles. While players don’t join battles, they are thrown into Dodgeball courts with a pre-assembled team tasked with defeating new challengers. The game’s main objective is becoming the ultimate dodgeball champion while unlocking and upgrading unique characters to compose and balance your team - sounds familiar right?
The Very Best
Players take the role of Otto a promising young dodgeball player as he trains to become the best player in the world. Joining a prestigious academy, Otto will develop new friendships and rivals along his journey. The core concepts of the game are, obviously, dodgeball and exploration, players will quickly realize that those things are intertwined, and Humble Games made a good job making progression feel natural. Through exploration, players will be able to upgrade Otto and friends with unique special abilities they encounter throughout the world, and by defeating rivals new dialogue and story options open up.
There is immense praise to direct towards this 2.5D title, the artwork, marvelous level design, amazing sound design, and the manga/cartoon battle animations are flawlessly executed. The gameplay is also very simple and friendly, even if matches feel challenging, this game can be recommended to anyone. There is also a variety of rivals to face people, TVs, animals, pirates, bullies the number of character designs is notable here, among all of that there are special boss matches as well. To top it off modifiers, and all kinds of crazy abilities await you in the court from hurricanes to cars running over its a frantic game to play.
There is a lot to like from the previews, gameplay, and demo’s that Dodgeball Academia has presented. Most notably the RPG-sport fusion, diverse cast, sound design, and awe-inspiring artwork. The gameplay is fast-paced, and the variety of modifiers and abilities are guaranteed to keep players alert, but again exploring Dodgeball Academia’s world was an immense treat.
By the game’s cartoonish looks, and what seems like a silly storyline, this is certainly a game directed towards a younger demographic. However, this shouldn’t dissuade older players from venturing into this title, in fact, anyone who has enjoyed Pokemon, Paper Mario, or Knockout City I highly recommend Dodgeball Academia.
