Enter The Gungeon House of the Gundead Revealed for Arcades
Enter the Gungeon is getting an arcades exclusive spinoff, House of the Gundead.
Devolver Digital held its E3 2019 conference today. Devolver has been parodying other studios’ conferences and stuff regularly in E3. This E3 2019, they went with some kind of “Devolver Direct”, parodying Nintendo Direct. Multiple odd games were announced, including a new Enter the Gungeon spinoff: Enter the Gungeon House of the Gundead.
Enter the Gungeon House of the Gundead will be launching in 2020, not on any consoles or PC, but as an arcade game. you can find its first trailer below.
House of the Gundead is in a first-person view, like most arcade shooting games of the past such as Time Crisis or House of the Dead. The main difference is that House of the Gundead is in full 2D. Players explore the Gungeon floor by floor, can find new weapons and do dodge rolls to evade the attacks of the Gundead army.
Devolver Digital is quite unique in both its games and its marketing. I’d personally say I’m not quite a big fan of their marketing though, as it seems like the “easy way” to be different in this era of hype and cinematic trailers. Kinda like passing as cool by criticizing a certain president.
Enter the Gungeon House of the Gundead will be sold with its own arcade cabinet.
