AKB: Underdog is a fun retro Punch-Out!! style animal arcade boxing game in which you attempt to punch your way through matches to be crowned king of the ring.
In AKB: Underdog you take control of Bullen Beisser, a boxing dog who has set his sights on being crowned King of the Ring of the AKB league. To do this you’ll have to fight your way through 13 different animal opponents and you’ll also become a focal point for the world’s Human Vs Animal racial conflict.
The current demo build only features one boxing match and doesn’t have any of the narrative elements but the core gameplay is already a lot of fun. It plays similarly to the Punch-Out!! Games, even down to the Star Punches and Flurries, but it features fun new touches like a rotatable ring and counter-punches.
It’ll be interesting to see how the narrative shakes out, but even in the current early build, it’s easy to pick up and play and really impresses with its stylish retro visuals and fast paced arcade gameplay. A scrappy retro arcade boxing game well worth jumping into the ring with.
