Publisher Double Fine Productions and developer Teknopants have announced Samurai Gunn 2, the sequel to the 2013-released PC original. It will launch first for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in early 2019.
Here is an overview of the game, via Nintendo.com:
Samurai Gunn 2 features a new, expansive adventure mode and an updated versus mode.
Adventure with a friend through a medieval metropolis on the brink of crisis—fight or fly past your foes to discover the mystery behind Gunn City’s ghostly threat. …or battle together with a group of 2-4 friends in versus with improved controls, new levels, and new characters! A princess, a golem, a samurai knight, and a homeless girl all have a part in rewriting the fate of Gunn City forever.
- Samurai Gunn 2 launches first on Switch in Q1 with a window of exclusivity.
- Designed by Beau Blyth, co-creator of Hyper Light Drifter.
- Armed with a sword, a gunn, and three bullets per life, fight or fly past your foes to discover the mystery behind Gunn City’s ghostly threat. Every decision matters, since one hit is all that separates victory from defeat.
- Classic versus mode is back for two-to-four players with improved controls, new levels, and new characters.
- New to Samurai Gunn 2, adventure with a friend through a medieval metropolis on the brink of crisis. A mad emperor pushes to expand the city at a ridiculous pace, while an epidemic of gunnpowder overdoses is on the rise, and old spirits are creeping back into the world.
- Featuring Trigger Soul, a Samurai Gunn graphic novel by acclaimed French comic creator Valentin Seiche. With super smooth touch screen interface (exclusive to Switch).
