Enter the Gungeon

Dodge Roll Games has announced that its fab twin-stick bullet-hell dungeon crawler Enter the Gungeon will release on Switch starting next week.

Why "starting", you ask? Well, for whatever reason, Enter the Gungeon's launch will be staggered across different eShop territories. North America will get it first on Thursday December 14th, while Europe and Japan will be graced with its presence on Monday December 18th and Thursday December 21st respectively.

If you've yet to be acquainted with Enter the Gungeon, it might help to imagine something like The Binding of Isaac with military-grade experimental munitions. Eurogamer contributor Simon Parkin, however, likened it to a "twin-stick Spelunky" in his Recommended review.

Gungeon Payday

Last year’s Enter The Gungeon [official site] was a rather pleasant surprise, offering a satisfying blend of bullet-dodging shmuppiness paired with a bit of Binding of Isaac-ish’roguelite’ dungeon-crawling and looting. This week saw the release of a cross-promotion update between Gungeon and Payday 2 [official site], with both games gaining a generous handful of free extra gubbins. The funny thing: none of them are guns.

Dodge Roll, OVERKILL, Devolver Digital and Starbreeze have released a special crossover event between Enter the Gungeon and PAYDAY 2. The crossover event includes three heist-worthy items from PAYDAY 2 introduced into Enter the Gungeon and four Gungeon-inspired masks and trophies available in PAYDAY 2.

Gungeoneers will discover three new items lurking around the game including the drill (opens locked chests while you fight waves of enemies), the bank bag (acquire more money but it spills out when you are hit), and the PAYDAY 2 mask (adds in a new Heister minion for each PAYDAY 2 item you possess).

PAYDAY 2 fans will now have access to new masks and trophies based on four of heroes of Enter the Gungeon. Select from The Bullet, The Robot, The Marine, and The Cultist and work to get the trophies associated with each new mask!

Hey there Gungeoneers,

We are excited to announce our second major update: Advanced Gungeons & Draguns.

The focus of the update is on community requested changes, quality of life and convenience features, hundreds of new and substantially more powerful synergies, a bunch of new guns and items, and getting revenge on the Gungeon’s most hated resident, our new boss. Of course there will also be new rooms, npcs, secrets, and a new mini-boss. Our primary focus was to make the Gungeon a more generous place, while retaining options, for players who really engage with the difficulty of the game.

If you tried Gungeon in the past and found it too hard, too stingy, or too slow- this update will be the version for you. If you liked it just the way it was, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered as well.

The aim is to release this update simultaneously, or semi-simultaneously on each platform, and yes that includes the Nintendo Switch, this fall. In the meantime, if you want to check out some of the new stuff- swing by the Devolver Booth at Pax West next week.

We see this update as the ‘complete’ version of the original release of Enter the Gungeon, hence the word advanced in the title. We’ve included nearly everything that we had in our original and insanely over-scoped plan for the game, as well as tried to incorporate as many pieces of thoughtful feedback from our lovely community. We read the comments, and we’ve stolen many of your ideas wholesale. As we get closer to the release of the update, we will have a detailed post about the changes included in the update. Thank you so much for your continued support of our silly game, Dodge Roll, and Devolver Digital. This update is not the end of Gungeon, we’ve got something small (but awesome) coming in September, and next year we’re breaking down walls. Until then, punch that Rat in the face for us.
