Mutant Football League, which launched in January on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, is coming to Nintendo Switch as well on Sept. 18 with a retail “Dynasty Edition” relaunch featuring new teams and new content.
Werewolves and demons will join the species slugging it out on Mutant Football League’s bloodspattered gridiron, along with two more teams added to the base roster of 18 squads. Mutant Football League is the spiritual successor to the Mutant League Football hit for Sega Genesis 1993 years ago; Michael Mendheim, the creator of the original, is behind this follow-up as well.
Mutant Football League: Dynasty Edition will sell for $29.99. It includes the multiple-season Dynasty Mode where, like traditional sports video games, users try to assemble a dominant franchise winning multiple titles over the course of several years.
Mutant Football League began life as a Kickstarter project back in 2013. It launched on Steam in November 2017 and then for PS4 and Xbox One in January. The game is a rock-em-sock-em parody of American football, full of over-the-top-violence. Tim Kitzrow, best known as the announcer for the original NBA Jam series (and its 2010 and 2011 remakes) supplies the lead commentary.
Update: Digital Dreams Entertainment announced Sept. 19 that the Dynasty Edition retail launch had been moved to Oct. 30, on all of the game’s platforms. Players who already own the game will get all of the new Dynasty Edition content via a free update.
