The Japanese dark-fantasy and Western-style military action game called Bullet Witch is coming to a new platform. Publisher XSEED Games has announced that the game will be coming to PC via Steam and the Humble Store on April 25th, and will feature a 10% discount during its launch week. The game will regularly be sold for $14.99.
The following is a breakdown of the game’s key features taken from the new Steam page:
- This Is My Broomstick – Alicia’s gunrod can transform on the fly into four different weapons, each of which can be enchanted for extra punch and special perks. Mow down enemies to charge your magic meter, then can call down thunderbolts, tornadoes, and even meteors to blast the rest of them to kingdom come. Few gaming heroines have ever wielded as much raw power as Alicia at her peak.
- The Path of Destruction – Nothing is safe from your wrath, least of all the environment around you. Your magic can tear the roofs off of buildings, ignite an entire gas station, or level towers. If any enemies survive, use your telekinesis on the rubble to throw it at them and crush them flat.
- You Are Not Alone – Your strength and bravery will inspire the battle-hardened resistance fighters around you, and soon enough, they’ll fight by your side. Use your magic to keep them alive, and they just might return the favor.
- All DLC Included – The PC release of Bullet Witch includes all the original game’s costumes and bonus missions for free. (Beat the game once to unlock the latter; the costumes are available from the start.)
Bullet Witch originally launched as an Xbox 360 exclusive back in 2007, getting mixed reviews at the time. The game’s flashy spells and destructible environments were praised, but it received heavy criticism for its short length, dull gunfights and poor graphics and controls. It will be interesting to see if the PC version can smooth out some of the rough edges, and we’ll find that out later this month.
