Punch Club 2: Fast Forward Finally Gets Its First Trailer

By | February 17, 2023

Lazy Bear Games has officially released an announcement trailer for a sequel to its 2016 RPG Punch Club in Punch Club 2: Fast Forward.

Revealed as part of IGN Fan Fest, Lazy Bear Games didn’t share a release date for the game but did reveal that it’s coming to PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.

That trailer showed off some story elements and gameplay from Punch Club 2. Seemingly as full of pop culture references as the last game, the trailer (and game) opens with a Matrix-esque sequence in which the protagonist is told to wake up from the ominous Corporation.

A montage then takes place as the protagonist trains in an empty garage, dances with robots in a club, fights baddies in factories, talks to a head in a jar in a mall, watches news reports in an evil lair, and so on.

In our 6/10 review of the original, IGN said: “Punch Club is tedious at times, thanks to an unfortunate level-down system that artificially extends the road to the championship with grinding repetition, but its upgrades, stat growth, and more compensate with satisfying depth.”
