Announced to their official Twitter last night, the visual novel turned arcade shooter sequel will be launching on the two consoles “this winter” in North America.

The “Gal*Gun” games are unique shooting games where you control a protagonist who has become popular beyond control. He must fend off approaching girls with his Pheromone Shot in order to find love with his destined partner before it’s too late.
