Gal Gun Returns Announced for PC and Consoles

Gal Gun fans can now rest easy knowing that PQube and Inti Creates have announced that the game will be returning to PC and consoles in 2021. The announcement came with an English website, details regarding the collectors’ edition, as well as a new trailer.

Just like the original title, Gal Gun Returns will be one part visual novel and one part action shooter. If you’re unfamiliar with this title, the premise is pretty simple: a young man suddenly becomes extremely popular with the ladies.

As such, he has to fend himself from their unwanted advances, especially since he’s not interested in them at all. There’s one girl in particular that has caught his eye, however. As he attempts to get to know this young woman, the game’s protagonist has to utilize a special tool in order to ward off the onslaught of women.

The initial Gal Gun game was released for the Japanese Xbox 360 all the way back in 2011. Later on, the title was ported to the PlayStation 3 along with the introduction of brand-new characters and PS Move support.

This upcoming remastered version, on the other hand, will feature more than 70 characters, including the main heroines of the game, students and teachers, as well as the angels. In addition to that, each and every one of these 70 characters will be fully voiced.

There’s a variety of game modes you can choose from in Gal Gun Returns. Naturally, there’s a Story Mode that contains the entire campaign of the game. There’s also a special “Doki Doki Mode” that needs to be unlocked first by meeting all the required conditions. A special bonus will be given to those players who somehow manage to fire at the women at different angles.

There’s also another mode called Score Attack Mode, where you can either practice or flex your shooting skills. Last but not least, there’s the Doki Doki Carnival, which is basically an upgraded version of the Doki Doki Mode.

Instead of focusing on just one woman though, Doki Doki Carnival has you shooting multiple girls at once. You will also be given the opportunity to check out over 250 illustrations from both the old and new Gal Gun games via the Gallery.

One cool thing worth noting in Gal Gun Returns is that you don’t need to separately purchase the DLC costumes because they will come pre-loaded in this title.


The original Gal Gun game was released about ten years ago now, so it’s already expected that this remaster will have a couple of changes and improvements. As a matter of fact, the publisher states that some adjustments have been made to the character designs, such as new hairstyles among other things.

Not only that, both new and old players can look forward to new CGs for the heroines’ introductions. If you check the game’s official website, you will find short biographies for each heroine along with new character renders. You can check this out if you wish to get to know each one better.

Gal Gun Returns is set to release this 2021 for the PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One.
