PQube has announced an exciting new project today, due to hit PC, Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 later this year. Super Bullet Break is an anime-styled deckbuilding roguelite that challenges you to battle through seven different virtual game worlds in an attempt to save the digital realm from the “Buggos”.
As a deckbuilder, Super Bullet Break has a lot of the same appeal elements as gacha games — including anime girls fond of showing their bottoms and booba in provocative poses — but without any of those pesky microtransactions to worry about. In Super Bullet Break, you rebuild your deck with each new run through the game, unlocking new cards to add to the pool whether you succeed or fail in your attempts to progress.
Both the game worlds and the characters (known as “Bullets”) that you can collect are inspired by a variety of different game genres, including dating sims, rhythm games, dungeon crawlers and strategic epics. There’s more than 160 different girls to get to know — including the obligatory swimsuit and wedding variations — as well as three playable characters, who affect your starting decks and passive abilities.
The roguelike deckbuilder genre has become immensely popular in recent years — as you’ll see in our feature on 10 of the best deckbuilders out there today — but we’ve been surprisingly short on anime-themed examples of this endlessly replayable genre, so Super Bullet Break will provide a fun and colourful twist on an established formula. It already looks like a ton of fun, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the finished version.
Oh, and if you were wondering, I was assured by an anonymous source that this time around, Sony were weirdly fine with the amount of anime T&A on display in Super Bullet Break. One day we’ll understand their policies on this sort of thing, but apparently today is not that day.
Super Bullet Break doesn’t yet have a firm release date, but watch out for it later in 2022. Wishlist it on Steam today if you like what you see, or put in a preorder for the physical Day One editions that will be available for both Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, featuring a boxed copy of the game, cardboard slipcase and art book.
