Yo Joe! A retro-style brawler in a similar vein to Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons, TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge and Streets of Rage 4 is coming from developer Maple Powered Games and publisher Freedom Games. G.I. Joe: Wrath of Cobra is a pixel art side-scrolling beat ’em up that’s coming to PC and Nintendo Switch in 2024.
In G.I. Joe: Wrath of Cobra, players will get to navigate land, air, sea, and even space through iconic locations like Cobra Island, the Pit, Cobra’s top-secret underwater base. Players will take on the ferocious forces of Cobra from Troopers to Ninja Vipers and HISS Tanks, to the deadly Crimson Guard and more.
The game supports up to 4 players in both online or couch co-op in either Story or Arcade Mode. Lovingly detailed hand-drawn pixel art and classic-style cartoon cutscenes combine for the ultimate G.I. Joe experience featuring an arcade-inspired soundtrack from legendary composer Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania, TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, Streets of Rage 4 – Mr. X Nightmare DLC) and from Crush 40’s lead vocalist Johnny Gioeli (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020).
Freedom Games has yet to make an announcement on the full roster, but it looks like the current list of playable heroes are Duke, Snake Eyes, Scarlett and Roadblock. Boss fights to be expected are Destro, Serpentor, Baroness, and of course Cobra Commander.
Judging from the end slate of the trailer above, it looks like we might be expecting more “Hasbro Retro Arcade” games based on its various IPs soon. We sure won’t mind having a retro-style beat ’em up based on G1 Transformers, with couch co-op support. Hasbro, please make it so!
G.I. Joe: Wrath of Cobra will be released in Q1 of 2024 on PC and Nintendo Switch.
