Space whale brawler Starwhal hits PS4, PS3 next week

There goes a narwhal! (Watch out for that piranha)

Do you dream of leading a school of floppy neon whales into galactic battle? Developer Breakfall will make your nautical fantasies become reality with next week's PlayStation 4 and PS3 launch of Starwhal, a local multiplayer arena combat game that's every bit as ridiculous as it sounds.

In Starwhal, players control a slippery sea/space mammal equipped with a deadly tusk. Each match drops you into a cramped arena packed with fellow narwhals - puncture the pulsing hearts on their underbellies to drain their health and claim victory. Think of it as TowerFall with wriggling sealife instead of archers and you've got a good idea of what to expect here.

Though Starwhal focuses on competitive multiplayer arena combat, players also have the option of taking on AI opponents with help from local partners, giving the game a wildly chaotic couch co-op component. Starwhal will launch for the PlayStation 4 and PS3 via the PlayStation Network on February 24. PC and Mac versions are also available via Steam.
