Super UFO Fighter, the upcoming party action game from developer VV-LABO and published by Phoenixx, delivers a literally explosive reveal of Super Ball mode at The MIX Next.  The vibrant spaceship competition makes its galactic debut on Nintendo Switch and PC on Thursday, Jan. 13, 2022.

Frantically fight to get the Super Ball into the opponent’s side of the arena before the timer runs out and the ball explodes! Use the Shwoop Beam to pick up and throw the ball, and Smash the opponent to distract them before the big boom.

Super Ball mode complements Main Game mode, where UFO pilots compete for the Galactical Shwoop Master Title by Punching capsules open to reveal the Target item, Shwooping it up, and dropping the piece in their goal.
Both Super Ball and Main Game mode support head-to-head online play with cross-platform support between Switch and Steam players. Local play is also supported and perfect for Tabletop mode on the Switch with two Joy-Cons. Conquer the cosmos in Single Story mode to discover why human Lulu got abducted or establish dominance among the community in multiplayer mode.

Super UFO Fighter will be available on the Nintendo Switch eShop and Steam for Windows PC and supports English and Japanese language text. For more information on Super UFO Fighter, please visit the official website, and follow the game on Twitter
