Yep, a Gal Gun English version is actually, officially, confirmed for a 2016 release in North America & Europe. It’s really happening. The game we haven’t been able to stop writing about since Rice started. Now Inti Creates have teamed up with PQube to bring Gal Gun Double Peace over on PlayStation 4 & PlayStation Vita.
Gal Gun Double Peace is a railgun shooter that does away with zombies or groups of mercenaries. Instead, trek your way through a bright and colourful academy, fending off your fellow female students! Why? Because they all want a piece of you. You’ve been struck by a cupid angel and have become irresistible to everyone.
You need to fend off love letters and kisses, battling your way through to find your true love by the end of the day, or face dire consequences. Shoot the advancing students and teachers with your “pheromone shot” to fend them off! Railgun-wise it’s perhaps most reminiscent of House of the Dead, though the style and tone couldn’t be more different.
We’ve already played the Japanese version quite a lot (as you can see above!) and it’s just a tonne of fun, and much more addictive than you might think. There’s also a huge amount of replayability with score attacks, collectibles, and alternate endings. Naturally we’re super excited for a Gal Gun English version. There just aren’t many railgun shooters out there, and this is one with a pretty unique twist!
To say ‘by popular demand’ would be a MASSIVE understatement! PQube and Inti Creates are not just pleased, but ECSTATIC to announce that hyper-moé shooter Gal*Gun: Double Peace will be assaulting your senses on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in both Europe and North America in 2016.
When Hodai, the portrait of an uninteresting normal student, is shot by a cupid angel named Ekoro, he becomes immensely popular – in the blink of an eye every girl at the academy becomes insanely hot for him.
But being irresistible to the ladies is hardly a dream come true. Every love letter, shout of adulation or advancing kisses will drain his energy. He has to stay strong – because if Hodai doesn’t find his one true love by the end of the day, he will become cursed and destined to be forever alone.
Fend off the other girls by using Hodai’s ‘pheromone shot’, a power granted to him by Ekoro that sends the advancing hordes of girls into fits of ecstasy! Only by keeping them at bay can he find his true love and confess to her.
Brace yourselves, people! Soon you will feel the true power of Gal*Gun! ^_^

Inti Creates announced a while ago that they were actively looking for a publisher for a Gal Gun English version, and now it’s been announced that PQube will be handling the release of Gal Gun Double Peace in the west. PQube have recently released Steins;Gate and Blazblue Chronophantasma Extend in 2015.
