Battle Chef Brigade, an indie hit from Adult Swim Games that was previously only on the PC and the Nintendo Switch, is coming to the PlayStation 4. A new version of the game, Battle Chef Brigade Deluxe, is coming to all three platforms with a laundry list of updates and additions.
On August 28, 2018, PS4 owners will finally get a chance to check out Battle Chef Brigade and all of its puzzle/brawling hybrid glory. The game is all about going out and thrashing monsters for ingredients in classic-style beat-em-up areas, then moving to a “match three” puzzle-style when it’s time to put those ingredients together to cook.
Among the new additions for Battle Chef Brigade are new character Ziggy, the Undead Necromancer, and a local multiplayer mode. Ziggy uses breakdancing and kicks in combat, and has the ability to summon zombie sous chefs, ingredient-carrying imps, and turret demons for support. In multiplayer, friends will be able to test their battle chef skills and duke it out, Street Fighter-style. A Dynamic Theme for PS4 is also on the way.
Here’s an official list of further additions and tweaks, per Trinket Studios’ Tom Eastman in a PlayStation Blog post:
New Survival Mode: A speedy arcade mode where a death in the arena ends your run. Each win lets you pick from an assortment of items as you conquer the leaderboards.
New Free Play Mode: Practice hunting in any biome and crafting the 120+ dishes. This is the place to perfect your combos and analyze each ecosystem.
New Gallery: As you level up your Brigade Rank with Survival runs and bouts in the updated Daily Cook-Offs, you unlock gorgeous concept art.
New maps: Enter the Darkrealm in Daily Cook-Off, Free Play, Survival, and Multiplayer!
New Challenges: Ziggy gets his own pair of Break the Dishes stages.
Accessibility Improvements: We’ve added color-blind options, updated fragile state art, and let you fast-forward through duel introductions.
Thrash Buffs: Everyone’s favorite father of two has a much-improved Counter, better Berserk timer, and speed tweaks.
