This was confirmed at a tweet by DodgeRoll Games that also confirmed House of this Gundead, the House of the Dead-esque arcade match, will launch around precisely the exact same period for arcades, and that Enter the Gungeon has achieved more than 3 million in sales.
For all those unfamiliar with Exit the Gungeon, this is a rather surprising announcement for Apple Arcade and one of very few games that made the service enticing. It requires the core notion of Input the Gungeon and turns it into a smaller and easier variant. Think of it like a elevator stage at a beat’em up game. You have a tiny area and you fight enemies and defend it.
The hectic style of gameplay and likely fairly high skill cap will make it an easy choice for fans and newcomers alike. It is also nice to see the title land on other platforms, especially given it released only a couple months ago on iOS. No word on what, if any, changes will be made but, even if it is the same exact game, at least it’s great to have the opportunity to experience it.
Sadly, while we know what is going on with Exit the Gungeon, there doesn’t seem to be any word on where to find a House of the Gundead machine. In addition to it not being present at last years E3, the $5000 price point will make it hard for a lot of fans to pick one up. This leaves arcades, of which there are not terribly many, to pick up the tab and ultimately have. Given the niche nature of the franchise, it is unlikely to see it be fairly widespread but hopefully we will see a listing of where to find it in the future.
