It’s a sad day for fans of pheromone-injecting rail shooters.
Gal Gun Returns, the remaster/remake of the original Gal Gun, will not be showing up on Xbox One. The reason? Due to an inability to “ensure consistency” on the Xbox platform following a discussion with Microsoft.
“As a remaster of the original Gal Gun, we wanted to strive to ensure that we stayed true to the spirit of the first entry in the Gal Gun series,” Inti Creates said in a statement, “and while development of the Xbox version was complete and the master ROM under review, it became apparent, after productive discussion with Microsoft, that we would be unable to ensure consistency of experience across all platforms.”
This may be an issue of censorship on Xbox’s side, since the game deals with risque content, but that’s just hearsay and speculation. This sucks, but at least the game will be out on PC and Nintendo Switch on 12th February 2021.
