Genre: Music and Party
Aliens are invading Earth! These eight-tentacled extraterrestrials want revenge for humanity's reckless broadcast of the Golden Record from the Voyager probe, which ruined the peace and quiet of their corner of the universe. The only thing standing between these music-hating creeps and total planetary domination is...a metal band?
Landing over the sleepy Tokyo suburb of Kichijoji, the invaders abduct an unassuming high school student and merge his soul with that of Rinko, the drummer in her high school's outrageous all-girl metal club. Now sharing Rinko's body, this unlikely duo will have to team up to take down the aliens with the only weapon they have: metal.
Joining this pair are their band mates in K.M.G. (Kichijoji Metal Girls): Kia, super sci-fi nerd and synthesizer player; Mani, resident rich girl and bassist; Shiimi, delinquent and lead guitarist; and Eri, gentle giant and backup guitarist. Together, they'll perfect their music to thwart the aliens and protect the Earth, all while navigating the rigors of regular school life.
Unleash the Power of Metal
Gal Metal is a rhythm game designed for Nintendo Switch that turns your Joy-Con into drum sticks. The Joy-Con (L) and Joy-Con (R) produce different sounds, and swinging them together creates a cymbal crash. The game can also be played with a Pro Controller, but no matter how you choose to jam, you'll be creating awesome drum lines in no time. By fashioning your own beats to the game's library of songs, you'll earn metal power that can be turned against the aliens!
- Jam Your Way - A new spin on traditional music game play, Gal Metal eschews predetermined musical notes and lets the player create their own drum lines based on over a dozen beats. Practice the beats in your club room after school and wrack up unique combos to blow the aliens away in live performances!
- Unique Storytelling - Divided up into episodes ending in climactic concerts, the lighthearted story unfolds in animated manga panels and text messages brimming with personality. The manga reads right-to-left for an authentically Japanese experience.
- Be an After-School Specialist - In between performances to take on the pesky aliens, you'll manage your own life as a student. Improve your skills and friendships by doing part-time jobs, hanging out with your friends, and jamming in the club room.
- Show Your True Mettle - While the basic game play of Gal Metal is simple to learn, players who master the beats can earn millions of points by creating complex performances. How much metal power can you score?
