Humanity’s reckless broadcast of the Voyager probe’s Golden Record has ruined the relative peace and quiet of the galactic home to an eight-tentacled alien species, so they’ve come to earth to exact their revenge! Parking their invasion force over a quiet Tokyo suburb, the aliens abducted and merged the soul of a high school boy into the body of his classmate Rinko, who happens to be the drummer in her school’s all-girl metal club.
Unfortunately for the aliens, this unlikely duo is determined to fight back with the only weapon they have: the power of Heavy Metal! Join up with fellow K.M.G. (Kichijoji Metal Girls) members Kia, Mani, Shiimi, and Erii, and unleash rocking drumbeats and metal riffs to protect the earth from these tentacled invaders while simultaneously trying to navigate daily life as a high school student.
About Gal Metal
Gal Metal is a rhythm game designed for Nintendo Switch that turns the Joy-Con into drum sticks. Players will take hold of the Joy-Con and rock along with the music in order to repel would-be alien conquerors. This is accomplished by creating complex performances and racking up millions of points using personal free-form drumlines based on over a dozen different beats. With Nintendo Switch Pro Controller support on offer as well, players will be able to choose how they want to jam and earn metal power to use against these nefarious invaders in this uniquely adlib-friendly rhythm experience.
