Set in a world that has become dependent on a rapidly diminishing natural resource, you play as a gruff woodsman on a quest for revenge armed with the mysterious Gunbrella – a firearm that doubles as an umbrella.
However, his investigation soon “becomes entangled with the inner workings of ghouls and gangsters, cops and cultists, and the fallout of corporate exploitation.”
While exploring diverse locations and interrogating the bizarre characters that you encounter, you must use the Gunbrella to glide, swing, dash and dive – gathering spare parts that you can trade for different munitions and upgrades.
The publisher has outlined the game’s key features, which include:
- Gain Mastery of the Gunbrella: Engage in thrilling, side-scrolling action making full use of the Gunbrella’s unique maneuverability and close-quarters combat capabilities. The Gunbrella is more than just a weapon – use it to glide, swing, dash, and dive around the world and discover seemingly unattainable secrets along the way.
- Leave No Stone Gunturned: From a small town menaced by cult kidnappings to a junkyard fortress ruled by a ruthless trash gang, explore a diverse assortment of unusual locations and interrogate bizarre characters on your quest for answers. Keep track of findings in your trusty notebook, and remember to retrace your steps…
- Retrieve. Reload. Repeat: Salvage scrap and spare parts to trade for different munitions and upgrades for your impermeable arsenal. As your search deepens, and you conjure increasingly ghastly agents of the supernatural, you’ll need all the help you can get.
Gunbrella will be released digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 13 September 2023.
