Publisher PQube and developer Inti Creates are excited to announce that the original Gal Gun is finally coming to the west under a new name Gal Gun Returns.
The game will launch on Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC in the west in 2021. The game will launch on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in Japan and Asia on January 28, 2021 and on PC in February 2021. Those who want a physical copy will only be able to get one on Nintendo Switch as the PC and Xbox One versions will only be available digitally.
The original Gal Gun was never released outside of Japan so this is the first time fans in the west will get to play it. You can watch the trailer and read more about it below.
As the franchise turns 10 next year, what better way to celebrate than to bring to the west the game that started it all but never left Japan, in all its glorious remastered form: Gal Gun Returns! It’s time for faithful Gal Gun-ners and new fans alike to experience the roots of Gal Gun and its numerous undiscovered panties!
Gal Gun is the entertaining story of a young man who becomes “super popular” with the opposite sex and is now living the “unfortunate” life of having every lady that looks his way confessing their undying love for him.
But he must steel himself and fend these would-be lovers off with his “special weapon” (known as the Pheromone Shot), as he tries to win the affections of one of the main protagonists. Gal Gun is the crazy combination of arcade-style shooting action and dating sim that truly has no equal.
