Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues, a new side-scrolling beat ‘em up action game inspired by Sony’s critically acclaimed series, coming to Netflix later this year, has been announced for consoles. Launching on PlayStation®4 & Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues features RPG-like progression, the opportunity to play as your favorite characters from the world of Cobra Kai, and two-player couch co-op.
Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues delivers an original two-fold story from dueling perspectives made in collaboration with the series showrunners, complete with character-driven cutscenes and dialogue featuring the voices of Ralph Macchio, William Zabka and more. Play as Daniel LaRusso and his students at Miyagi-Do Karate, or their Cobra Kai rivals, led by Daniel’s old rival, Johnny Lawrence. The choice is yours, but only completing both sides of the campaign will unlock the ultimate ending.
Swap between eight playable characters seamlessly in battle, each with their own unique upgradeable attacks, combos, and skill trees. Facedown fierce enemies and bosses in hard-hitting brawls and explore the Los Angeles of the Cobra Kai universe across 28 story missions.
Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues looks to be done in a side-scrolling beat-’em-up style with the kids featured in the show making their way through generic guys from the opposing karate group, there are boss fights included with more senior members of the cast like John Kreese, the Sensai of Cobra Kai from the original movie series. Each character looks to have some form of special move that is specific to their character that can be leveled up through a training and points tree system. Also teased is scenes from the show/movie like the Hill Valley Karate Tournament being used as stages, but no mention if there will be one on one tournament fights like in the series at this point.
Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues will be available on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on October 27, 2020. If you would like to know more about this Netflix series, you can read our Season 2 review before the show debuts on Netflix later in August.
