FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TOKYO – May 16, 2020 – Mighty Goosethe over the top, run-and-gun, titled goose game, developed by Blastmode and published by PLAYISM, gears up for its Saturday, June 5, 2021 release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
Hunt “down” fiends across a fowl galaxy as Mighty Goose. Waddle and gun as fast as any heavily-fortified goose can through five stages, each with their own bounty waiting to be plucked. Flaunt Mighty Goose’s feathers to show off collectible upgrades and weapons like Sprint Boots and Chonker Bombs. Bring rescued companions and their abilities under Mighty’s wing, then team up with local co-op mode for a full goose and gander playthrough.
In this epic adventure, Mighty Goose brings the fight to the Void King. Gun your way through hordes of minions and mechanized machines under the evil conquerer’s command. Free Commander Vark and friends to form your own little squad in the fight to free the galaxy.
Our goose hero might not win a footrace, but his accuracy and wide arsenal of weapons send his enemies packing for the south. Preen invasive space creatures from high-security prisons, dangerous deserts, and ancient civilizations all designed in high-quality pixel art by Richard Lems (KUNAI) with inspiration from classic and beloved run-and-gun games. A high-energy soundtrack by Dominic Ninmark (Blazing Chrome) complements the egg-splosive action.
“Combining the goose character with something as action-packed as Metal Slug seemed like a really funny idea.” said Richard Lems, founder of Blastmode. “Mighty Goose is a modern take on the throwback run-and-gun of the 90’s, combining funny characters and crazy encounters with solid gameplay and fluidity of a modern game.” 
Mighty Goose releases Saturday, June 5 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Steam for Windows PC for $19.99/17.99, and will honk in Japanese, English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Korean, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Polish.
