Back in August of 2014, developer Bail! Enemy Jet! first announced a new vehicle-based arena combat game called Brawlerz Nitro in our forums. The original teaser video looked really neat, and the game promised tons of vehicle customization, tons of different abilities, and of course a ton of awesome offensive and defensive weaponry. They also said that they were aiming for a Q4 2014 release window for Brawlerz Nitro. Welp, that sure didn't happen! The good news though is that Bail! Enemy Jet! resurfaced today to post an update on Brawlerz Nitro and the project is most certainly still alive. They ended up doing some pretty massive overhauls on some of the core systems in the game, explaining the more than 2 year delay, but things are finally back on track and they'll be launching the Steam Early Access version this Friday. Check out the brand new trailer.

The game is still looking great, but there's a couple of caveats for us mobile gamer folks. Brawlerz Nitro is slated for PC and console release, and will feature local split-screen co-op as well as cross-platform multiplayer between all versions. The bad news is that neither of those features are possible on mobile (though split-screen may be possible with multiple MFi controllers), and the game's 10 minute average match time is also not conducive to a mobile experience. The bright side is that the developers are still planning on getting the game on mobile eventually, but first they'll be focusing on making the desktop and console versions be as polished as possible before deciding how best to bring the game to a mobile audience. Brawlerz Nitro looks cool enough that we'll be keeping an eye on its development and will let you know when more news about its mobile release is revealed. In the meantime the forum thread is the best place to talk about this one and stay on top of any news.

    This might absolutely destroy Crash of Cars when it releases. Ha ha.
