Making an appearance at Tokyo Game Show 2017, Gal Gun 2 won’t just be taking Japan by storm, but Europe and North America too. Inti Creates and PQube have announced the game will be heading westward as soon as Q1 2018, and for both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch!
That’s right, Gal Gun 2 will be releasing on PlayStation 4 as with its predecessor, Double Peace — but the handheld option this time will be Nintendo’s gorgeous new portable/home hybrid, the Nintendo Switch. With Senran Kagura games also being announced for the console, and Gal Gun 2 now set to “switch it up”, it seems that Nintendo are fully ready to embrace the moe this console generation.
The game’s full key art shows that as well as some familiar faces, Gal Gun 2 will be introducing some new characters into the mix! The familiar demon Kurona faces off against new angel, Risu; and Chiru and Nanako are the new love interests in the game.
Gal Gun 2 promises to add “new characters and new mechanics” to freshen up one of our favourite rail shooters out there. If it’s more Gal Gun, then sign me up! Though I’m not sure I’m brave enough to play this one on Switch on public transport.
Suck up pesky demons with the trusty “Demon Sweeper” sidearm! – Separate demons from the girls they’re possessing with a well-placed pheromone shot, then suck them up for bonus points! In Gal*Gun 2, you might even find some new things to suck up…
Doki Doki Mode is back, baby! – Get stuck into the action with one of the most (in)famous features of the “Gal*Gun” series. Doki Doki Mode will be back in Gal*Gun 2 and better than ever.
A brand-new story with new cutie pies to meet! – The story of Gal*Gun 2 kicks off with the demon-hunting angel Risu, who finds herself in a really tough spot. Making things even more complicated for our protagonist are two new heroines: the “girl next door” Chiru, who happens to be a total shut-in, and your childhood friend and classmate Nanako.
Helping out girls is the key to a happy academy life! – Take on requests from girls at the academy who are, unbeknownst to them, the target of demon’s mischief! These requests take time and efficiently managing your schedule is important to keep your days on-track. Earn demon-busting points to unlock new missions and story scenes. What kind of out-of-control academy life you lead is entirely up to you!
Gal Gun 2 is “bringing moe back” on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Q1, 2018!
