Game details as shared on Steam:
A Perilous Adventure
Welcome to the Forbidden Forest, a dangerous land protected by the Cursed Tengu. Launching with the 1st of 4 worlds, venture alone or with up to 4 friends cooperatively—online or on your couch! Includes 21 levels, 2 power-ups, 3 unlockable weapons, and a mysterious curse. Can you find them all?
Don’t blink! The original mode is back and faster than ever. It’ll take more than button mashing to prove yourself amongst friends! Launching with 9 VS levels: 2 all-new Samurai Gunn levels, 6 updated classic levels, and one ‘Friend’ level—based on Minit!
A Sword, a Gunn… and a Dash!?
Just like the original, each samurai is armed with a sword and gun, loaded with only 3 bullets. But shooting isn’t the only thing bullets are good for… By ‘swallowing’ a bullet, you can now Dash! Fly unscathed through your opponent’s slashes, just don’t Dash into a bullet head-on! A small addition that greatly expands the moveset and strategic possibilities.
A Samurai with Skills
Every character in Samurai Gunn 2 has abilities unique only to them. Run up walls, turn invisible, shoot explosive bullets, the list goes on! Discover new techniques and play styles with an ever-expanding roster.
