Mall Brawl Cruises Onto Consoles May 20

Jay and Silent Bob Mall Brawl Gameplay

Kevin Smith persona Silent Bob and his good friend Jay have ventured into the world of retro video games with Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl. Already released on PC and Nintendo Switch, the duo’s retro beat ’em up adventure will hit Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on May 20, and pre-orders are open now on Xbox specifically. Those that pre-order can save 10 percent off its usual $14.99 price.

Mall Brawl on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is an updated version of the original PC release, featuring enhanced visuals, altered difficulty settings, and a new soundtrack. These updates will automatically go to current owners when the new game releases later this month.

One notable thing about the game is that it is 100% compatible with the vintage Nintendo Entertainment System. Developers Spoony Bard Productions and Interabang Entertainment teamed with Limited Run Games to produce a sadly now sold-out NES cartridge for the release, but those with some technical know-how can procure the ROM from the PC version and still play it on NES-compatible systems.

Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl is the first of two games Jay and Silent Bob have been involved with in recent times. This NES throwback serves as a prelude to Jay and Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch, another beat ’em up with graphics reminiscent of the classic short-lived animated show based on the pair. Developed by Interabang Entertainment, the game was crowdfunded back in 2016 and doesn’t have a set release date as of now.
