Jay & Silent Bob Go 8-Bit in new game, Mall Brawl!

Jay & Silent Bob Go 8-Bit in new game, Mall Brawl!

Play as loudmouth Jay or his hetero life-mate Silent Bob as they take on the local mall in this new 8-bit brawler, Mall Brawl.

Jay and Silent Bob are two recurring characters that have appeared in numerous films directed by Kevin Smith. The director also plays the character of Silent Bob as well.

These two characters have appeared in numerous forms of media over the years such as film, comics and even an animated series, but now Jay and Silent Bob will appear in a new game for the original Nintendo Entertainment System (or Famicon depending on your country of origin).

Entitled Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl, this is a classic 2D scrolling beat ’em up in much of the same vane as River City Ransom or Double Dragon II.

As you can see from the trailer below, Jay and Silent Bob fight their way through a mall including many characters from Kevin Smith’s second film, Mallrats. If you look closely you can spot security officer La Fours and the Easter bunny!

Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl has been created to help fund another 2D side-scrolling beat-em-up that has been in development for three years now. Jay & Silent Bob: Chronic Blunt Punch was successfully crowdfunded in 2016 but is still in active development.

Those who pledged to that crowdfunding campaign will receive a free digital copy of Mall Brawl.

For the true collectors, Limited Run Games are releasing Mall Brawl on real NES cartridges. You can pre-order for $54.99 and the cartridge will be available in a choice of three colours, Nintendo Grey, Jay yellow or Silent Bob green.

Jay & Silent Bob: Mall Brawl will be released in October on Nintendo Cartridge and PC with planned releases for Nintendo Switch and other systems.
