XSEED Games and indie-studio DMM Games officially release their drum-focused beat-rhythm title Gal Metal for the Nintendo Switch. Limited Edition and DLC now available while supplies last.

As an independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., XSEED Games is no stranger to releasing some of the most unique titles from Japan. Today, the company has revealed that DMM Games’ Nintendo Switch exclusive title, Gal Metal, is now available in multiple forms. Along with the release of both the digital and physical versions, DMM Games and XSEED Games have also revealed a DLC pack for those that opt for the digital version of the game.

Those looking to go digital can pick up Gal Metal through the Nintendo eShop for $29.99. However, those that do purchase the digital version will also find an “Encore Pack” DLC for $9.99, which features five new characters, each having their own unique episode and song to experience. Those who opt for the limited physical release can pick up the “World Tour Edition” of Gal Metal from participating retailers for $39.99. This version includes the “Encore Pack” DLC pre-installed on the game part, an exclusive set of Heavy Metal stickers featuring characters from the game and exclusive packaging for the game.

Showing his love for the game, Gal Metal Producer, Tak Fujii, opened up about the official release, “Finally! It’s time to make some noise in the US and EU! Be a drummer! Form a band! Feel the groove and unleash your Joy-Con and yourself! Believe in the POWER OF METAL!

For those unfamiliar with the game, you can check out the synopsis about the game as provided to us by XSEED Games and DMM Games down below:

Humanity’s reckless broadcast of the Voyager probe’s Golden Record has ruined the relative peace and quiet of the galactic home to an eight-tentacled alien species, so they’ve come to earth to exact their revenge! Parking their invasion force over a quiet Tokyo suburb, the aliens abducted and merged the soul of a high school boy into the body of his classmate Rinko, who happens to be the drummer in her school’s all-girl metal club. Unfortunately for the aliens, this unlikely duo is determined to fight back with the only weapon they have: the power of Heavy Metal! Join up with fellow K.M.G. (Kichijoji Metal Girls) members Kia, Mani, Shiimi, and Erii, and unleash rocking drumbeats and metal riffs to protect the earth from these tentacled invaders while simultaneously trying to navigate daily life as a high school student.

Stay tuned as we have requested a review copy of the newly released title and hope to share our thoughts in a review at a later date.

Gal Metal is now available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
