Niche Spotlight – GigaBash


Today’s Niche Spotlight is GigaBash, a multiplayer arena brawler by Passion Republic Games.

GigaBash is an arena brawler for up to 4 players inspired by classic Tokusatsu series. Pick from one of 10 unique kaiju or mecha, each with their own arsenal of flashy special moves and combos. Brawl with your friends in a variety of arenas, from cities to active volcanos, each with their own hazards, special rules, and improvised weapons.

GigaBash supports 4-player free-for-alls or 2v2 team battles, both online and through couch co-op. The game also has several campaigns that can be played solo, or used as training for the game’s fierce multiplayer battles.

You can find a launch trailer below.

GigaBash is available on Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store and Steam), PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 for $34.99.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

After centuries spent slumbering in the bowels of the earth, the primordial beasts known as Titans have awoken. Now they must battle humanity – and one another – for total world dominance.

GigaBash combines the chaos and creativity of titles like Power Stone, Super Smash Bros Ultimate and War of Monsters with the jaw-dropping scale of the classic kaiju movies. Play as either a rampaging Titan or a Titan-hunting mecha; summon lightning from the heavens, use a radio tower as a baton, or roll a whole district (and your enemies) into a single massive snowball. Wreak enough havoc and you’ll evolve into your final form, the terrifyingly titanic S-Class.

Choose from a colourful roster of 10 unique characters in Battle Mode, each with their own moveset and playstyle. Can you master them all?

Dive into a fun frenetic free-for-all with as many as four other players, duke it out in Battle mode, or pair up in 2v2. Wage war around the world – from cityscapes to exotic locales, nowhere is safe from the wrath of the Titans!

Hop on the couch to challenge up to three friends with local multiplayer. Nobody home? No problem, just head online!

Time your attacks, block your opponents, use grabs and specials and build that meter to reveal your final form!

Discover the origins (and misadventures) of the Titans in four unique single-player campaigns, each with their own oversized protagonist.

Go head to head in Duel mode, challenging another player to see who is the true King of the Titans.

Experience the ultimate party mode with a variety of minigames designed for maximum fun. Only available in local play.
