Samurai Gunn was one of several key games that launched during a wave of excitement for local multiplayer titles. Now the team of indie freelancer devs is ready to take the Samurai Gunn experience to the next level. Wednesday, it was confirmed that Samurai Gunn 2 is going to be coming to Early Access. Better yet, fans won't have to wait long, as the Early Access launch for Samurai Gunn is planned to launch this summer.
While there's still a lot left for the Samurai Gunn 2 developers to finish, the team says that the game is ready to play right now. More importantly, the team says that Samurai Gunn 2 is "extremely fun" to play right now. As such, the devs think the best way forward is to have players experience the game as it moves forward and offering feedback. As such, Samurai Gunn 2 will likely take an additional year of development following its Early Access release.
Early Access will launch with a substantial amount of content. It'll include all three of Samurai Gunn's major modes: Adventure, Versus, and Comic. All three modes will also support both local and online multiplayer, as well as a selection of eight initial characters. All modes are only partially complete, and more characters are planned, with plans to finish over the coming year.
A big part of Samurai Gunn 2's Early Access announcement is also the confirmation that it's partnering with other games to bring characters in as guest fighters. The first two partnered characters will be the protagonists of both Minit and Spelunky 2, but more are planned. It could turn Samurai Gunn 2 into the indie Super Smash Bros. Expect more news in the months to come.
2020 was quite the year for better or worse, but the gaming industry was able to rise to new heights, as many companies experienced record sales. Many big name titles were released last year, but there were just as many amazing indie games in 2020 that kept gamers happy. Over the years, many indie games have become superstar hits among gamers, like Minecraft, Undertale, or Cuphead. Games like these often provide players with a unique experience that they haven't been getting in more mainstream titles, which helps boost these games' popularity.
Plus, several of these games that independent developers are creating have been able to garner incredible recognition in the industry. Hades, which many gamers might consider the best indie game of 2020, was nominated for several different awards with different organizations. The title even won Game of the Year at The Gayming Awards and The New York Game Awards. Indie games have long been developed by studios on their own, but as the gaming industry grows, many indie developers have been able to partner with game publishers to help games reach brand new audiences. It may end up being indie games that help push gamers through 2021.
Gamers have become very familiar with hearing about delays over the last year or so. Delays might be nothing new, but it seems that a majority a game studios have been affected in some way due to the COVID-19 pandemic that expanded in 2020. As the days go by, more and more games that were originally supposed to come out this year look to be pushed back. While Nintendo fans will get news for the Breath of the Wild sequel later this year, there is a very real possibility that the game will not come out until 2022.
