Samurai Gunn 2 Announced by Double Fine and Beau Blythe

Double Fine and Beau Blythe (co-creator of Hyper Light Drifter) have announced that Samurai Gunn 2 will be launching on the Nintendo Switch and PC in early 2019. It will also be playable at Pax West at the Nintendo Booth (#1939). In Samurai Gunn 2, a mad emperor pushes to expand the city at a ridiculous pace, while an epidemic of gunpowder overdoses is on the rise, and old spirits are creeping back into the world. A princess, a golem, a samurai knight, and a homeless girl all have a part in rewriting the fate of Gunn City forever.  Samurai Gunn 2 will also have an expansive adventure mode and an updated versus mode. Armed with only a sword, a gunn, and three bullets per life, players will fight or fly past their foes to discover the threat behind Gunn City’s current peril. That or they can battle with a group of two to four friends in versus mode with sharpened controls, a new levels, and characters.

The original Samurai Gunn was prized for its simplicity and depth. Samurai Gunn 2 expands on that depth with a new mechanic that makes every encounter even more exciting. Crush a bullet between your teeth to send yourself flying in a plume of smoke. “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 gunnpowder dash was added. There’s a Rock-Paper-Scissors effect now. Sword beats Gun beats Dash beats Sword.”

“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!”
