Joy-Cons™ at the ready – DMM Games’ free-form rhythm game Gal Metal makes its debut exclusively on the Nintendo Switch platform today, 2nd November in Europe, accompanied by a DLC pack and physical retail edition packed with excellent extras.
Available digitally for the Nintendo Switch, hardcore metalheads can rock out in Gal Metal using the Joy-Con™ controllers to create unique rhythms by way of easy-to-learn, yet difficult-to-master, drumlines – all while saving the Earth from an alien invasion.
Fans can also get their hands on the ‘Encore Pack’ DLC, adding five new characters to the game, each with their own unique story episode and song, released on the same day as the base game.
Those keen to get their hands on even more content can also purchase Gal Metal: World Tour Edition from selected retail stores from the day of release, which contains the base game and Encore Pack DLC, bundled together on the same Nintendo Switch cartridge, along with an exclusive set of Heavy Metal stickers. These stickers feature an assortment of in-game characters that owners can use to customise their Nintendo Switch or Joy-Con™ controllers.
Gal Metal is a rhythm game designed for Nintendo Switch that turns the Joy-Con™ into drum sticks. Players take hold of the Joy-Con™ and rock along with the music in order to repel would-be alien conquerors. This is accomplished by creating complex musical performances and racking up millions of points using personal free-form drumlines based on over a dozen different beats. With Nintendo Switch Pro Controller support on offer as well, players can choose how they want to jam and earn metal power to use against these nefarious invaders in this uniquely adlib-friendly rhythm spectacular.
Gal Metal is published in Europe by Marvelous Europe and in North America by XSEED Games. The game will be released today, 2nd November 2018, alongside the ‘Encore Pack’ DLC. Gal Metal: World Tour Edition will be available to purchase from selected retail stores on the same date.
