We’ve been treated to a fair few wacky titles from the Land of the Rising Sun, and Japanese publishers Rockin’ Android are looking to continue that trend with the upcoming release of Bunny Must Die: Chelsea & The Seven Devils on PC and consoles.
The game appears to be a bombastic action-platformer on a 2D plane in which Bunny must face and defeat seven Devils in a large, interconnected level map. There’ll be a rift of power-ups, puzzles and enemies, and even a time manipulation mechanic that’s said to be essential to the solving of certain puzzles.
“It’s an incredibly charming and nail-bitingly difficult action-platformer that mixes a warped sense of humor, unique gameplay mechanics, and a bit of that old Metroid and Castlevania magic,” claims Enrique Galvez, CEO of Rockin’ Android. Featuring full English translation from the original version of the game, developed by Platine Dispositif of The Gundemonium Collection fame, this new edition will also boast optional graphical tweaks and a fully remixed new soundtrack.
Look for Bunny Must Die to release on PC this summer, with unnamed console ports coming later via “several of the top online distributors,” whatever that might ultimately mean. In the meantime, take a look at some footage of the game below.
More information will soon be available at the game’s official site.
