Holo X Break Launches Without Online Multiplayer

The developers of Hololive fan-game Holo X Break announced that the game launched without online multiplayer. In a message posted to social media, the developers apologized and promised to add the feature at some time in the future.

The message explained that the intricacies of implementing online multiplayer were too much for the team to solve before the release date of March 29, 2024. However, the team decided to release the game in an offline state, rather than push the release back entirely. Holo X Break will feature local co-op however, and online play can be simulated using Steam’s Remote Play Together feature, which the developers state they used frequently for testing purposes.

The game istelf, which was announced earlier this month and launched today, is a side-scrolling beat-em-up similar to River City Girls and inspired by Little Fighters 2. The chief developer Kay Yu also previously created Holocure and has worked as an animator on several Hololive music videos as well as several non-Hololive related anime series like Onii-chan wa Oshimai! and Mushoku Tensei.

You can read the message from the Holo X Break developers in Japanese here, or in English via the tweet below:

Alongside Holo X Break, Cover Corp. also recently announced 2 more games would be released under the Holo Indie label: Wowowow Korone Box and Miko in Maguma. This is in addition to Idol Showdown, which Cover announced would be joining the label earlier in the month.

Holo X Break is immediately available for PC via Steam, with online multiplayer to be added in a later update.
