[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

The meatiest metroidvania in town, A Robot Named Fight!, is back with another SUPERMASSIVE FREE UPDATE! Explore an entirely new alternate area, complete with two new bosses and new enemies. Unlock new achievements to discover new items and synergies. Enjoy improved map generation and new content for existing areas. The update goes live Friday, May 24 in both the Nintendo Switch eShop and on Steam for PC, Mac, and Linux. 

New Area, Bosses, and Enemies

Explore the brand new Coolant Sewers - an alternate area featuring two new bosses, six new enemy types, 83 new rooms, and new music. Learn to navigate new hazards, including ice, water, and fans.

New Items, Synergies, and Achievements

There are 12 new items to snag, including Dive Shell, a powerful new body that allows you to move freely in water and perform a powerful dive kick. Unlock new achievements to discover items like Up Dog, a helpful, robotic, canine sidekick. Old favorites also offer new synergies, such as Energy Axe which can now be made “quite large” by the acquisition of Big Bolts. 

Revised Map Generation 

One of the largest changes is a completely overhauled and improved layout generation. Maps now feature more interconnectivity and less predictable placement of special rooms (such as save rooms, teleporters, and shops). The addition of two new layout patterns add even more variety. Finally, The Guts of the Beast have been expanded with more rooms, more danger, and new surprises.

Pricing and Availability

This free update is included in A Robot Named Fight! It is available on the Nintendo eShop and Steam for $12.99 and will be discounted 40% off Friday, May 24 - Monday, June 3.
