Konami has announced a brand new game today and that game is GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon, a 2D action title. The game is coming to Steam Early Access on May 13th, and will eventually makes it way to the Nintendo Switch in 2022. The early access price is $24.99 / €24.99 / £19.99.

GetsuFuMaden is being developed by GuruGuru and published by Konami. Shin Murato, Producer of GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon at Konami Digital Entertainment Co. said:
“Having an Early Access period gives us a great opportunity to build a community for GetsuFumaDen and ensure the game is as strong as possible. Throughout this period, we want to utilise user feedback and foster an active discussion to increase the quality of the game. We will work very closely with our community to help bring this game to life through content review, bug fixes, and balancing. Our focus is on Early Access at the moment; we will share more details about Nintendo Switch in the future.”
Yuki Yamashita, Director at GuruGuru, said:
“Working closely with KONAMI and bringing GetsuFumaDen to life is a thrilling project for us. We look forward to entering Early Access and actively working in partnership with the community on a title that speaks to our passion about design, visuals, and story. We’re excited to hear the community’s feedback with a goal to shape and evolve the game as we move forward in development.”
The story of GetsuFumaDen is set in a world where the gates of Hell have opened after 1000 years of peace, unleashing hordes of demons upon the world. Getsu Fuma is the main character and he is the leader of his clan. As leader he risks it all to find a way to send the demons back before the world is consumed and everything collapses. The only way to stop the horde is to venture into Hell.
