Game developer Marvelous began streaming two more gameplay videos on Sunday for its upcoming PlayStation Vita brawler action game Uppers.

The first video introduces demonstrates how players can pick up and toss heavy objects, and the second video demonstrates how players can knock objects away.

Marvelous previously streamed two gameplay videos last week that introduced the "Rise Up: Friendship Upper Rush" and "Pole Action" mechanics. Marvelous also streamed gameplay videos in February showing the game's playable characters in action.

The game was originally slated for release in Japan on April 21 for 6,980 yen (about US$60), but Marvelous announced that it would change the release date and price. Marvelous confirmed the new release date and price as July 14 for 4,980 yen (about US$45) for the physical copy and 4,611 yen (about US$42) for download.

Those who purchase the first copies of the game will receive a special "Men's Knuckle Uppers" booklet, a two-disc soundtrack, and a download code for a queen swimsuit outfit. Different retailers will offer different Senran Kagura print T-shirts as DLC costumes for female characters.

Game producer Kenichirō Takaki (Senran Kagura) posted on his English Twitter account last month that he would like to launch a localized version of the game outside of Japan.

The game will be set on an isolated island where brawling is the greatest form of entertainment. The game's characters all feature men who have their own hidden motives for arriving at the island, and seek to achieve them through fighting. Knock Out Monkey performs the game's theme song "Oh, No."
