Tunbridge Wells, England. — 25th April, 2018 — Marvelous Europe, in partnership with XSEED Games the independent-minded publishing brand of Marvelous USA, Inc., today announces that the remaster of the Xbox 360 cult favourite, Bullet Witch, will be available from 6pm BST / 10am PDT today on Windows PC and available digitally on Steam and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle with a 10% launch week discount from its regular selling price of £12.99, €14.99, and $14.99.  

The PC release of Bullet Witch comes complete with updated visuals and graphical options including uncapped framerate to support modern PCs and includes all DLC costumes and bonus missions for free.

KEY FEATURES

This Is My Broomstick - Alicia's gunrod can transform on the fly into four different weapons, each of which can be enchanted for extra punch and special perks. Mow down enemies to charge her magic meter then can call down thunderbolts, tornadoes and even meteors to blast the rest of them to kingdom come. Few gaming heroines have ever wielded as much raw power as Alicia at her peak.

The Path Of Destruction - Nothing is safe from Alicia’s wrath, least of all the environment around her. Her magic can tear the roofs off of buildings, ignite an entire gas station, or level towers. If any enemies survive, use her telekinesis on the rubble to throw it at them and crush them flat.

Alicia Is Not Alone – Alicia’s strength and bravery will inspire the battle-hardened resistance fighters around her, and soon enough they'll fight by her side. Use her magic to keep them alive and they just might return the favour.

About Bullet Witch

First came the calamities of nature: earthquakes and plagues. Then came the calamities of mankind: rioting and war. But neither could have prepared humanity for what followed – a literal army of demons marching out of the gates of Hell to exterminate what remained of society. Armed with supernaturally enhanced military hardware and driven by pure evil, humanity’s extinction seemed all but inevitable. However, tales of a woman in black with a long gun like a witch’s broom and magical powers to match circulated amongst survivors. They told stories of battles so intense that whole city blocks were levelled, leaving regiments of demons riddled with smouldering bullet holes. They whispered rumours of this woman sharing her own blood to save wounded victims’ lives. It’s said she can even control the elements and summon clouds of ravens to do her bidding. Her name is Alicia and while her past is a mystery and nobody knows where she came from, she may be humanity’s last shot at surviving this apocalypse.

Originally released for the Xbox 360 in 2006, Bullet Witch offered a unique combination of Japanese dark-fantasy aesthetics and Western-style military action. This hidden gem is back and ready for action on Windows PC for a new generation of gamers with a host of visual and quality of life improvements fit for the modern gamer. Take control of Alicia and her powerful, multi-purpose gunrod to lay waste to demonic foes by bullet or spell, even using the surrounding environment as part of your arsenal. All cosmetic and content DLC is included in this re-release, providing access to all in-game costumes immediately and bonus missions following the conclusion of the campaign.

Published for Windows PC worldwide by XSEED Games, Bullet Witch released digitally on Steam and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle on April 25, 2018 with a 10% launch week discount from its regular selling price of £12.99 , €14.99, and $14.99. This PC release of the title has not been rated by the ESRB, PEGI or USK.
