The Week in Games: Don't Bring A Sword To A Gunfight

Illustration for article titled The Week in Games: Don't Bring A Sword To A Gunfight

There’s a bunny head, swords, guns, and a lot of ducking. Furi is all about one-on-one dueling, and with bright colors everywhere. “It’s not trying to be realistic in its style or animations,” says its website. “It’s fast-paced and requires a lot of timing, reflex, and judgment.” Awesome.

Several re-releases are out this week, including Hawken and Metal Slug Anthology. Then comes next week, when we get Ghostbusters, Monster Hunter Generations, Necropolis, and Song of the Deep, and I remind myself to be fiscally responsible and not buy four games in one week. Probably, maybe.

I implore you to check out Furi! It’s a cross between hack n’ slash and shmup. Essentially just a gauntlet of boss battles, rather than with normal levels.

It features character designs from Takashi Okazaki, the creator of Afro Samurai and music from Carpenter Brut and The Toxic Avenger, amongst others.

They’re currently even thinking about a Limited Run-Games Physical Version. And I’ve heard there’s even Japanese voice acting!

Here’s a Trailer; (And the best part, it’s free with PS+)
