Digital developer Mediatonic has today announced Foul Play: The Perilous and ENTIRELY ACCURATE Adventures of Baron Dashforth, a side-scrolling brawler that casts you as the lead actor in "the greatest show on earth", which involves taking to the theatre stage as the Victorian daemon-hunter Baron Dashforth to perform incredible moves to dazzle and wow your audience.
In Foul Play, you'll smash your way through legions of "wildly costumed extras" as you recount the Baron's astonishing life story on stage, amid the seamy streets of Victorian London and the pyramids and deserts of Cairo, as well as castles and incredible, improbable monstrosities that you'll encounter during your journey.
The Baron has access to chains of attacks, shattering takedown moves, throws and reversals, and supports 2-player co-op with special team takedowns to perform alongside your loyal buddy, Scampwick. Coming to the Xbox Live Arcade (date and pricing to be confirmed), Foul Play looks like a slice of endearing and cartoony brawler fun. Check out the first two screenshots below.
