About Gal Metal

Gal Metal is a rhythm game designed for Nintendo Switch that turns the Joy-Con into drumsticks. Players will take hold of the Joy-Con and rock along with the music in order to repel would-be alien conquerors. This is accomplished by creating complex performances and racking up millions of points using personal free-form drumlines based on over a dozen different beats. With Nintendo SwitchTM Pro Controller support on offer as well, players will be able to choose how they want to jam and earn metal power to use against these nefarious invaders in this uniquely adlib-friendly rhythm experience.

Gal Metal will be published for Nintendo Switch by XSEED Games on October 30, 2018. For more details as they’re announced, please keep an eye on XSEED Games’ social media channels via Facebook and Twitter. This title has been rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
