Get ready to rock and roll all night as developer XSEED Games has announced new details regarding the Western release of Gal Metal, the hardcore rhythm game.

Gal Metal will be released both digitally and physically in North America and Europe this Fall. The physical version of the game, entitled Gal Metal World Tour Edition, will come with the Encore DLC pack, a content patch that gives players access to five new characters and songs. Additionally, players that opt to buy the game digitally will have the option to purchase the Encore DLC separately on the Nintendo eShop.

Released in Japan earlier this year, Gal Metal is a rhythm game that capitalizes on the Nintendo Switch’s Joy-Cons. Instead of using plastic peripherals or a VR headset, players simply use the Joy-Cons to pantomime the act of playing the drums. Promoting creativity, the game tasks players with creating “free-form drum lines” over the rhythms embedded into the game’s soundtrack. Of course, players also have the option to play the game with the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller, you know, on the off-chance that they hate having fun entirely.
