Update (Thu 16th Jun): Remember this? Well, the developer, who is very active on Twitter, has now officially announced that Hypercharge: Unboxed will be coming to Xbox, with a date to be revealed in the future. We pretty much already knew it was happening, but now it's been 100% officially confirmed. Good stuff!

Original story (Mon 11th Apr): If you've never heard of Hypercharge: Unboxed, you're not alone β€” the game has yet to release on Xbox or PlayStation platforms, but based on the demand we've been seeing for it over the weekend, it could be a smash hit.

The developer of the game took to Twitter on Saturday to ask Xbox fans whether they'd be interested in playing it, and ended up going viral with over 24,000 likes on the video. Even they seemed surprised by the intense reaction:

Despite what many in the comments originally thought, Hypercharge: Unboxed is not a new game, having first released on Nintendo Switch all the way back in 2020, and it's also available on the Steam platform with a "Very Positive" rating.

There's no release date for the Xbox version yet, but it's clearly on the way at some point, and hopefully it might even get added into Xbox Game Pass if we're lucky. The game is a wave-based shooter with defence building mechanics and PvP combat, and can be played solo, in local co-op, and in online co-op for up to four players.

If you grew up watching classic toy movies and played with action figures, get ready for mass nostalgia! Fight waves of weaponised toys in fun, light-hearted battles where each wave gets tougher and tougher. Hypercharge is easy to jump in and out of, allowing you to progress at your own pace.
