Coming in 2019 from Double Fine Presents and Beau Blyth is Samurai Gunn 2, launching on the Nintendo Switch and PC.
In the game, a mad emperor pushes to expand the city at a ridiculous pace while at the same time an epidemic of gunpowder overdoses is on the rise. To make matters worse, old spirits are creeping back into the world. It's up to a princess, a golem, a samurai knight, and a homeless girl to rewrite the fate of Gunn City forever.
Samurai Gunn 2 will feature a new, expansive adventure mode and an updated versus mode. Players will venture with a friend through a medieval metropolis on the brink of crisis, armed with only a sword, a gunn, and three bullets per life. They’ll have to fight or fly past their foes to discover the mystery behind Gunn City’s ghostly threat. They can also battle together with a group of two to four friends in versus mode with improved controls, new levels, and new characters.
“Good design means the player always has a meaningful choice to make,” said Beau Blyth. “The game immediately became so much more fun when the gunpowder dash was added. There’s a Rock-Paper-Scissors effect now. Sword beats Gun beats Dash beats Sword.”
Samurai Gunn 2 will further feature Trigger Soul, a full-length graphic novel by acclaimed French comic creator Valentin Seiche in collaboration with PEOW Studio. It will also feature a new soundtrack composed by legendary rapper/producer/poet Adam "Doseone" Drucker (Samurai Gunn, Enter the Gungeon, Gang Beasts).
“We’re huge fans of the original Samurai Gunn and Beau, so having this opportunity to work with the team on this sequel has been amazing,” said Greg Rice, Double Fine’s Vice President of Business. “We can’t wait for everyone to check out the game and Samurai it up.”
Samurai Gunn 2 joins Double Fine Presents’ library of games, including Gang Beasts, GNOG, Everything, Ooblets, and KIDS.
The game is currently rated "RP - Rating Pending" by the ESRB.
