Enter the Gungeon Dodge Rolls into Retail Stores, Available Now for Switch

Finally seeing retail release

EDISON, NEW JERSEY – Aug. 6 – For the first time, ruthless bullet hell dungeon crawler Enter the Gungeon dodge rolls into North American retail stores for the Nintendo Switch™, courtesy of distributor Nighthawk Interactive. The retail edition comes with all previously released downloadable content (DLC) including final DLC pack “A Farewell to Arms,” the exclusive “Shotgun Kin” playable skin, the original soundtrack, as well as new collectibles including exclusive stickers, an exclusive Bullet Kin papercraft and reversible jacket artwork. This special retail package is available for $29.99 in stores including Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop.

From developer Dodge Roll and publisher Devolver Digital, Enter the Gungeon is a constantly evolving gunfight dungeon crawler that allows players to choose from a team of unlikely heroes as they battle their way to the bottom of the Gungeon in search of its ultimate treasure. In order to survive a challenging and evolving series of levels filled with the dangerous yet adorable Gundead and fearsome, formidably armed Gungeon bosses, players will stock up on and customize weapons of their own to defeat their foes, with hundreds of options to discover. While wrapped in charming pixelated visuals, Enter the Gungeon presents complex combat challenges that push players to constantly adapt their tactics over repeated playthroughs to truly master.

The retail edition of Enter the Gungeon comes packed with content and exclusives, including:

· Retail Exclusives – The physical version comes equipped with the exclusive “Shotgun Kin” playable skin, reversible jacket artwork, the game’s original soundtrack, limited edition stickers and an exclusive Bullet Kin papercraft.

· Previously Released Content – Players who pick up the game at retail can battle through all previously released DLC, including the final update, “A Farewell to Arms.”

· Local Co-op – When the bullet hell becomes too hellish or if there aren’t enough bullets flying around the screen, players can grab a friend for local co-op to crusade through the Gungeon together.

· The Legendary Gungeon – The constantly-evolving bullet hell fortress blends hand-designed rooms within a procedurally-generated labyrinth bent on destroying all that enter its walls as it continually raises the stakes and the challenges.

· The Cult of the Gundead – The Gungeon is littered with zealous Cult of the Gundead, disciples of the gun that will stop at nothing to defend their temple. Each enemy type wields unique firing patterns that players will need to learn in order to survive.

· The Gungeoneers – Several unlikely heroes are at the player’s disposal, each burdened by a deep regret and in search of a way to change their past, no matter the cost. Filled with equal parts courage and desperation, these adventurers won’t hesitate to do what it takes to make it to their goal alive.

· The Guns – Players discover and unlock scores of unique guns, each with its own unique tactics and ammunition. These guns unleash everything, from the tried-and-true medley of missiles, lasers, and cannonballs to the bizarrely effective volley of rainbows, fish, foam darts, and bees. Yes, bees.

Enter the Gungeon is available now for Nintendo Switch™ at North American retailers for $29.99. The game is rated T for Teen by the ESRB for Fantasy Violence, Blood, Suggestive Themes, Alcohol Reference.

Enter the Gungeon retail release apparently bumped back to Aug. 2019

Enter a little bit later

Nighthawk Interactive was supposed to release a physical version of Enter the Gungeon last week in North America, but as you can guess, that didn't happen. The title has apparently been delayed, but Nighthawk Interactive hasn't commented on the situation yet. It appears the new release date for the title is Aug. 6th, 2019, as multiple retailers have changed their information to reflect that date.

Enter the Gungeon is Devolver Digital's second best-selling title of all-time, has been 'massively successful' on Switch, says Devolver

Have you entered the Gungeon?

Devolver Digital is having a ton of success on the Switch right now. They just saw My Friend Pedro hit 250k within a week, which is only available on PC and Switch so far. It's yet another game that feels perfect for Devolver Digital, and goes a long way in showing fans what kind of experiences they can expect from the company.

In an interview with GamesBeat, Mike Wilson, founding partner at Devolver Digital, gets into a discussion about the company's best-selling games. While SCUM takes the top spot, a game Switch fans are aware of takes spot #2.

Enter the Gungeon is our next best-selling franchise. Part of that is because it’s on so many platforms. It’s been massively successful on Switch.

Dodge Roll discusses why they're wrapping up Enter the Gungeon, teases a future project set in the Gungeon universe

Enter a different Gungeon

With the Farewell to Arms update, Dodge Roll is officially done creating new content for Enter the Gungeon. They'll release patches and tweaks, but the game is now considered content complete. After such a huge success, many are wondering why Dodge Roll has decided to move on. Dev Dave Crooks was asked that very question by PCGamesInsider, and you can check out his answer below.

Creative and technical fatigue. After five years of developing Enter the Gungeon, with many interesting and potentially creatively fulfilling ideas and opportunities passed on, combined with increasingly annoying technical slogs to get new features working without generating new bugs, we just needed to move on to stay happy, to stay productive, and to stay sane. Gungeon is a game where, by design, everything interacts with everything else, and everything is decided at runtime.

All new content had to play well and not break countless other decisions that had been architected in different development “eras.” We couldn’t just add Orbit Bullets for example; they had to interact nicely with 8 fundamentally different weapon categories, companions that shoot fundamentally different kinds of bullets, and other complicated bullet movement modifiers like Helix Bullets. New content had to be interesting, had to be different and worthwhile; with hundreds of guns, items, enemies, and bosses, the options within the framework of the game become slimmer.

The more interesting stuff we added in, the more difficult it became to add anything else without things breaking. After years of this steady climb in implementation complexity, adding new interesting guns and items slowed to a crawl, and became less fun to work on as it became more fragile.

While there might not be any new content for Enter the Gungeon in the works, that doesn't mean Dodge Roll is done with the series. When asked about future projects, Crooks had to say.

We are currently working on a handful of projects, none of which I can speak about in detail. All I can say is that at least one of them is likely going to be set within the Gungeon universe.
