SPOKANE, Washington: August 9th, 2022 -- Indie game studio ExceptioNULL Games today announced the August 9th release date for the newest update to Election Year Knockout. Vladimir "Bootin" and his pet bear Dmitry join the roster as an optional boss fight.

The additional character is free for all players of the Steam version of the game. For iOS and Android versions of the game, he is available as part of the "Nuclear Negotiations" upgrade pack along with Kim Jong BOOM.

In this hard-as-nails boss fight, Vladimir Bootin expertly trades blows in a hectic brawl for survival. As he takes damage, he gets more and more desperate and fights with abandon. His stomp attacks are devastating, but they leave him wide open to counter attacks and haymakers. The harder, second Bootin fight included in the update contains a heart-stopping surprise and is a true Mike Tyson-level challenge for long-time fans of the game.

The addition of this new character is made possible by the outpouring of love and excitement by the game's players. The developer intends to add more characters to the game by popular request.

In Election Year Knockout, you fight to become president in a ludicrous alternate reality where elections are decided exclusively through boxing. In fact, all conflicts are solved through boxing, from traffic tickets to world wars.

The game is laugh-out-loud funny, endlessly charming, and easy to pick up and learn while demanding skill to complete. Election Year Knockout enjoys a positive cumulative review score on Steam, and an unbeatable 4.8 stars on the App Store.

Fans of Nintendo's Punch-Out!! series should give Election Year Knockout a try. The game is more than an homage to the past. The developers have come up with unique "resource trading" gameplay that is more rough-and-tumble than other games of its kind.

Players are rewarded for aggressive play, risky strategies, and perfect defense toward the end goal of masterfully playing each opponent like a fiddle. It's also worth noting how the mobile port of the game manages to retain the entire Punch Out control scheme with zero compromises to playability. As fun as it is on a controller, the game really is a generational leap for action games on phones as well.
