System: Switch
Release date: October 30, 2018
Developer: DMM Games
Publisher: XSEED Games / Marvelous


Music is prominent in our day to day lives because of the amount of emotions it can give us. Whether it’s sadness, happiness, anger – it can illicit memories and induce feelings, creating moments that stay with you for the rest of time and take you out of the moment and into another space. For musicians, this is a lifestyle, not just a hobby, and the wonderful thing about games like Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Dance Dance Revolution is that they make feeling like a musician – regardless of whether you have talent or an affinity for instruments and the craft – a lot more accessible to the masses by handing them peripherals to make the immersion that much more real. With Gal Metal, no peripherals are needed, as your life as a drummer begins as soon as you pick up your Joy-Con and start tapping away with the motion, hitting at imaginary drums as you try to save the world from an alien invasion with the power of metal. It’s a lot of fun when it feels good, however the accuracy, timing, and calibration more often than not are off-tempo, even if you’re not, making it for an imaginative but somewhat lackluster experience.

During a live stream, XSEED showed off new direct-feed gameplay of Gal Metal in English. We have the full recording below.

XSEED announced earlier in the month that a physical version of Gal Metal will be offered in North America. Marvelous followed up with news for Europe today, confirming similar plans.

Gal Metal: World Tour Edition will be sold in selected retail stores later this summer. It’ll include the full game plus the Encore DLC pack containing five new characters, each with their own unique story and song.

You’ll also be able to purchase Gal Metal on the eShop as well. The Encore DLC will be sold separately here.

DMM Games released the metal rhythm Switch title Gal Metal in Japan earlier this year. It’s now confirmed for the west as well, courtesy of XSEED Games and Marvelous.

XSEED will be handling publishing duties stateside. In Europe, that will be Marvelous’ role.

It’s unclear if the Switch title Gal Metal will ever head west. Still, if you’re interested in seeing what the music / rhythm game has to offer, you can nab a free demo on the Japanese eShop.

Finding the demo won’t be entirely easy, since you need to type in Japanese characters to search for it. The easiest way is probably to just use the default search tab and continue going down the page until you see the thumbnail pictured above. Click on Gal Metal’s eShop listing, then select the second option underneath pricing (5,378 yen) to begin downloading the demo.
