What’s the best way to celebrate a gaming franchise turning 10 years old? Whack out the original in glorious remastered form, of course. And that’s exactly what PQube and Inti Creates will be doing when they deliver Gal*Gun Returns to Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
Announced for release in 2021 (it’s gonna be one hella busy year), Gal*Gun Returns will see the decade old original creep out of Japan to deliver some arcade styled shooting action mixed with dating sim mechanics to the West. Whether you’re already a faithful Gal*Gunners or looking to take things on for the very first time, Gal*Gun Returns will sort you out.
If you are unaware, Gal*Gun tells the tale of a young man who suddenly becomes a bit popular with the the opposite sex, having to live out the unfortunate life of having every lady that looks his way confessing their undying love for him. Whilst that sounds great for some, it’s not here and he must steel himself and fend these would-be lovers off with his special weapon – the Pheromone Shot – as he tries to win the affections of one of the main protagonists.

Returns promises to deliver choice, euphoria, multiple new features and improvements, alongside the chance to take in a variety of game modes, a host of DLC drops from back in the day, a Gallery Mode, full voice acting AND the chance to hunt down no less than 423 types of panties. Yep, hot on the heels of National Underwear Day and our article covering the best games to play on the most important day of the year, Gal*Gun Returns will breathe new life into the gaming scene.
