Wildbus is a beat ’em up starring a bus, out on Switch in August


Developer Wildbus Studio has revealed that Wildbus, a beat ’em up title that stars a customizable bus, will be releasing on Switch next month. The game will be available on the eShop on August 31. It tasks players with duking the heck out of their bus so that they can navigate a brutal post-apocalytpic landscape and, well, beat the crap out of everything while they search for a promised land of light. Watch the trailer below to see how Wildbus plays, and then read on for some more background on the game, its plot, and its features.

Ever thinking about beating mutant monsters with a fully customizable fighting bus? It’s time to rev up the engine! The wild bus is a classic beat’em up the game in a retro-style with tons of weapons ranging from giant punch glove, mega drill, megaphone cannon or even dragons.

Background story

The Great Devastation was a massive war between huge enterprises and the government that lasted for more than a decade. When the war ended, Arrakis became shrouded in the dark clouds of despair as mutant monsters and bandits rose from the darkness to control the world, but people who believe in the light drive armed buses in the wilderness in search of the Promised Land of Light filled with the ultimate happiness…

Key Features

– Retro cartoon style
– Open world, can move in 3 axis
– Passengers are invited to board the bus to get special abilities!
– Collect different weapons to carry out group attacks!
– There are tons of equipments items skins in the game for collection!
– There are tons of Easter eggs hidden in the game for you to discover!

Wildbus certainly has a strange premise, but that looks like a good thing. It appears that you can deck out your bus pretty extensively, and using your jumpy bus to lay waste to a wasteland sounds pretty darn fun. With a $13.00 entry fee, I might have to give this one a shot.
