Samurai Gunn 2 has resurfaced with a brand new trailer and a deliberate summer time launch date, three years after first being introduced. The quicker-than-quick area fighter sequel introduces on-line multiplayer and a narrative mode, however in any other case its blades-and-bullets ballet appears as fashionable and slicky brutal as the unique.
Samurai Gunn 2 was first introduced again in 2018 with a deliberate 2019 launch date. Again then it was resulting from be printed by Double Nice Presents, Double Nice’s publishing division which shut down after they have been acquired by Microsoft.
Now that the sport has reappeared, it has a brand new writer and is aiming for an early entry launch this summer time. The sport’s Steam web page explains that they “plan to proceed updating Samurai Gunn 2 in Early Entry till we end Journey Mode, end the Comedian, and develop Versus mode with plenty of new characters and ranges.”
Amongst these characters shall be some acquainted from the primary sport, but additionally “Mates” characters from different video games. Two are revealed within the trailer above: the little beak-faced protagonist from Minit, and Ana Spelunky from Spelunky 2. Presumably you may defeat the Minit protag by simply ready sixty seconds?
One unusual element from the Steam web page: all the sport will be performed on-line or regionally, which implies you may play the story mode as a co-op journey, but additionally the comedian. I do not even actually know what which means – simultaneous studying the place you are taking it in turns to vary the web page? However I prefer it anyway.
I by no means personally spent lots of time with the primary Samurai Gunn, preferring Towerfall and Nidhogg for my native occasion brawls, however Brendy liked it.
