Modus Games Acquires Brazilian Dev The Balance, Override: Mech City Brawl Now Coming to Switch

Publisher Modus Games has acquired Override: Mech City Brawl developer The Balance, alongside confirming a Switch port for the game.

The mecha-brawling game is now coming to the hybrid console sometime this fall. The Balance will operate as Modus Studios Brazil, and serve as Modus Games very first in-house development studio.

“This is one of many giant steps for Modus as we strengthen our goal to bring AAA publishing services to independent developers,” Modus Games CEO Christina Seelye said in a press release. “With the creation of Modus Studios Brazil, we will be better positioned to fund and support burgeoning markets and enhance Modus IPs.”

The Balance co-founder Lucas Carvalho added, “We are very excited to embark on this new endeavor with Modus Games. It’s been our dream to push our creative boundaries and work on a wide variety of games, and our new partnership with Modus has made this possible.”

Here’s a rundown on the game:
