Gunman Clive 2

Gunman Clive 2 is due out next week on the 3DS eShop, creator Bertil Hörberg has confirmed. This applies to both North America and Europe.

The game will be available starting on January 29. Pricing is set at $2.99.

Hörberg wrote on Twitter a few moments ago:


There’s been some vague talk about the possibility of Gunman Clive 2 hitting this year, but it now officially looks like the game will launch in 2015. Creator Bertil Hörberg took to Twitter today and confirmed that his title passed the final lot check testing in North America, but it’s too late for it to release this year. Gunman Clive 2 will now likely arrive simultaneously in both North America and Europe sometime in 2015.


Gunman Clive 2 creator Bertil Hörberg has confirmed that the game has been submitted to lot check in the United States. Whether or not it will launch this year is currently unclear.

Hörberg also shared a price point for Gunman Clive 2 over on Twitter. It will cost $3 – slightly more than the original’s $2, but still very much affordable.

Here’s the full roundup of Hörberg’s recent tweets:


Gunman Clive 2 will have more than one playable character. Yesterday on Twitter, creator Bertil Hörberg introduced “Chieftain Bob”, who can perform short-ranged attacks.

Hörberg’s tweets are as follows:


Gunman Clive 2 has been in the works for about a year, according to Bertil Hörberg.

Hörberg told Nintendo Enthusiast:

I started development in November last year, which may not seem very long ago, but I’ve already spent more time on it than I did on the first game. I don’t have the patience or the stamina to work on massive projects that takes several years, so the fatigue is really starting to set in and I’m hoping to be able to finish the game somewhat soon.

As for what we can expect from Gunman Clive 2: a slightly longer experience, a change in visuals, and improved controls. That’s on top of new enemies and obstacles, varied environments, and more special levels.

Overall, it’s a fairly straight forward sequel. The first game was rather short and people were asking for more levels, so that’s basically what I’m giving them, but at the same time, I’m trying to bring it up a notch and deliver a more exiting product with its own identity. The most obvious change is probably the color palette and there’s a bit more graphical detail as well. The controls is a bit faster and the jump a bit less floaty.
