We’ve previously seen Red Art Games rock up in the gaming world behind the likes of Sturmfront – The Mutant War and Arietta of Spirits. Next up on their hit list is that of Gunborg: Dark Matters.
Created by Ricpau Studios and now picked up for publishing rights by Red Art Games, Gunborg: Dark Matters is an arcade platformer which will be pinging its way to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch.
Due to drop on March 4th (yep, just a couple of short weeks away), it’ll have you taking in an action packed platformer that is set in space. You’ll find yourself armed with a fierce blade and powerful shield, attempting to battle through all ahead of you, working through an alien spaceship that is filled to the brim with deadly creatures and fearsome bosses.
Promising smooth, skill-based gameplay, a ton of weapons, some dark energy that can be used to power that arsenal up and a respawn cycle that is super fast, Gunborg: Dark Matters could well be a bit of a hit – even more so when you include the 1980’s styled synthwave soundtrack.
Red Art Studios (a branch of Red Art Games) are sorting the console ports, whilst you’ll also find physical versions available too – unless you’re an Xbox player. Physical PlayStation 4 (limited to 999 copies) and PlayStation 5 editions (limited to 1,500 copies) of Gunborg: Dark Matters will be available for €24.99 each on the Red Art Games Store starting February 18th, 5pm CET and released on March 4th. A Nintendo Switch edition, limited to 2,900 copies, will also be available for pre-order for €29.99 – expect to find that one in late April 2022.
The only question that will remain is whether or not you have what it takes to face up to the constant threat that is coming your way. You’ll find out for sure on March 4th as Gunborg drops onto Xbox, PlayStation and Switch. We’ll remind you when that time comes.
Kick back with the trailer for now.
