Inti Creates has announced a full-fledged sequel to the Gal*Gun series with Gal*Gun 2, slated for a release on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Gal*Gun is an action comedy series of on-rail shooters with an arcade-style feel to them. In these games, a young boy becomes ‘cursed’ with pheromones that make all females in the vicinity fall in love with them; however, this effect will last for only one day and after that, no woman will ever be interested in them again. Under these circumstances, the protagonist has to shoot away the charmed vixens with his trusty angelic gun and find his true love before the time runs out.
So far, there have been three entries to the series: Gal*Gun, Gal*Gun: Double Peace, and Gal*Gun VR. The fourth and newest entry to the series, titled Gal*Gun 2, is supposed to be the biggest expansion to the gameplay of the series — thus warranting a proper number appending the title.
For now, there’s little information about the new features planned for Gal*Gun 2. The storyline seems to remain mostly the same, including the lead cast character stereotypes; however, we did receive a mention of what seems to be a more robust quest system in comparison to hunting for hidden objects in the original game. The vacuum sidearm from Gal*Gun VR will make a comeback, as will the “Doki Doki Mode,” also known as the most controversial feature of the series, where players interact with charmed girls leading them into what seems to be an orgasm.
