Player Cards (featuring your own Kuto mascot)
Ever wondered what those little red characters are called that you see dotted around the Yakuto world? They’re the Kutos! Obviously. In the new version of the game, we’re introducing Player Cards as a way for players to show off their Career credentials in Multiplayer. The Kutos appear in your Player Card and will wave your flag (yes, you finally get to select a flag in version 2) and they’ll react to your wins and losses. Your Kuto gets bigger and more adorned with medals and trophies as you progress in Career.
Multiplayer Mini Games
We wanted to replicate the game variation we have in Career so as well as standard head-to-head matches, we’ve come up with some 2 player mini games. The image at the top of the page is a screenshot from “Glass Table” – it’s a multiplayer take on Half Table. Both players see the same targets and try and get them before their opponent does. This second image is from “Zone Fight” – inspired by Street Fighter, it takes place in one of our new arenas (you may recognise it as Bounce ping pong club in Holborn – for those of you based in London).
Another one of our most popular requests, we’ve finally implemented bat skinning. There’ll be plenty to choose from…but we’ll make you earn them!
Release date and more details
This is just a selection of the features we’ve been working on. Multiplayer is a tricky old thing and we’re aiming for a slick implementation of it so let’s just say that we aren’t planning any summer holidays this year. Expect the update to arrive on both iOS and Android in August. We’ll start off with local multiplayer support and then release the online multiplayer update a couple of months later. We’ll post up more screenshots and details here over the next few weeks. Exciting right!?
