G.I. Joe: Wrath of Cobra, the retro-style beat ‘em up set in the timeless G.I. Joe universe from developer Maple Powered Games and publisher Freedom Games, has just been announced. Get ready for G.I. Joe’s biggest mission yet on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG as well as Nintendo Switch in Q1 2024, as revealed today at The MIX Next.

The legendary G.I. Joe franchise returns for arcade-style beat ’em-up action with Duke, Scarlett, Snake Eyes, Roadblock, and other beloved franchise favorites. Navigate land, air, sea, and even space through iconic locations like Cobra Island, the Pit, Cobra’s top-secret underwater base, and more as you thwart the devious Cobra Commander’s latest scheme to take over the world.

Wield an arsenal of weapons, explosives, and more as you combat the ferocious forces of Cobra and take on Troopers, Ninja Vipers, HISS Tanks, the deadly Crimson Guard, and more. String together powerful combos and master the special abilities of each character to turn the tide of battle. Master dodging and parrying to overcome the odds and save the world.

Assemble up to four players in both online or couch co-op in either Story or Arcade Mode. Lovingly detailed hand-drawn pixel art and classic-style cartoon cutscenes combine for the ultimate G.I. Joe experience featuring an arcade-inspired soundtrack from legendary composer Tee Lopes (Sonic Mania, TMNT Shredder’s Revenge, Streets of Rage 4 - Mr. X Nightmare DLC) and from Crush 40’s lead vocalist Johnny Gioeli (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020).

“G.I. Joe is an absolute classic franchise with one of the best fanbases. Working on this game is a dream come true and it’s been a blast creating the game I’ve always wanted to see for G.I. Joe,” said Kerry Vandenberg, co-founder of Maple Powered Games. “We’re honored to give G.I. Joe fans the video game they deserve with the most authentic experience possible.”

“G.I. Joe is one the most iconic brands from the 80s and it was the golden era of arcade games. To celebrate the growing popularity of retro-themed games we’re thrilled to partner with Maple Powered Games and Freedom Games to bring G.I. Joe fans our fifirst-everasbro Retro Arcade experience in this exciting interpretation of a classic 2D beat ‘em up” said Eugene Evans, SVP Digital Strategy and Licensing at Hasbro.

G.I. Joe: Wrath of Cobra will be available on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store, and GOG with support for Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems and Nintendo Switch in Q1 2024.

I believe either Clutch, Zap, or Short-Fuse since they all do look alike...

Clutch has a beard and dark hair. Zap has dark hair and a mustache. And all three of the above wear helmets pretty much invariably. According to a few gamer sites, this is supposed to be Ripcord.

I know there are people who are not sold on the idea of the character designs. I think it's kind of neat. Metal Slug was a cool game I played with back in the day, but more important is the game mechanics, and to get rid of boring elements and repetitive missions. If these are not present, then this will be a solid little effort.

Who was shown before Roadblock, that's the only one I didn't recognize.

Gotta say compared to the TMNT game this just doesn't look that good graphics wise, the sprites are too small, and the details are too soft, but either way I am always happy to play a new Beat-em-Up, and I'm really stoked about this game, graphics aside I'm sure it's going to be a fun play, the game play is what counts in the end, I have no doubt this will deliver, only thing is No PS4 you say? well that's wacked, I'm gonna need this for PS4 please.

This should be fun. I really hope that it gets the same treatment as the Shredder game. Awesome news.
