XSEED, the American publishing branch of Marvelous Interactive, has announced that they will be bringing Switch heavy metal rhythm title Gal Metal to America, with Marvelous bringing the game to Europe. Titles such as Gungrave VR, Corpse Party 2, and Touhou: Scarlet Curiosity have also been confirmed by XSEED.

Gal Metal is a Switch motion-controlled rhythm game that uses joycons to help an all-female metal band through a series of vignettes that involves everything from putting on concerts to saving the town from aliens. The title has been highly requested for localization due to its unique and lighthearted style.

You can find a bit of footage of all the games in this sizzle reel below of XSEED localization announcements.

You can find more information at XSEED's blog post right here. It is likely that the publisher will have more on these titles at E3 next month.


Our Take
I've been excited for Gal Metal for a while, so I'm really glad to see it's coming over. It has superficial similarities to Ouendan, which is one of my favorite games, so I'm hoping I'll like this a ton, too.
