Wild Guns Reloaded Announced, Exclusive to PlayStation 4

wild guns reloaded 05-12-16-1

Natsume has dipped into their library of old intellectual properties once again for what seems like a remake of the classic shooting gallery game, Wild Guns.

The publisher announced Wild Guns Reloaded, and the game is set for PlayStation 4 as an exclusive to the console. “Clint & Annie return in a new PS4 exclusive,” said the company on Twitter.

The original Wild Guns was released in Japan back in 1994 for the Super Famicom, and it didn’t see release in North America until the following year. It’s worth mentioning this was a game developed in-house by Natsume, which they also published themselves.

Further details weren’t announced, however the company will reveal more at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.

    Cool. This could just be a rerelease of the classic with some trophy support. I’m OK with that.

    You gotta be kidding me. I’m both happy and angry at the same time.

    I mean no Wii U makes sense, and Natsume isn’t much of a PC company, Xbox One is Xbox Done in Japan.

    But c’mon, no NX? /jokes

    Right, I can already see Bloodborne on steam.

    makes sense really, the nx is going to be just as gimmicky and autistic as the U or Wii was.

    No chance I’m going to get a PS4, even more after this crazy PS4NOWAY, or was it PS4NEO?
    Doesn’t matter, they are trying to bait us with Shadow of the Beast, KOF XIV, and now this. I can wait.

    Exactly, there’s only one right choice for what to play video games on.
    Based PS4 of course.

    As far as consoles go anyway, PC is more my speed, but if i were a console gamer there’s no question which platform I’d pick.

    Perhaps, but it’s more likely Natsume is just releasing to the larger consumer base, that isn’t a phone user.

    I’ve said this many times before, and I’m sure I’ll say it many times more: no PC, no care.

    This could be neat, but I’m bracing myself for a Rocket Knight-tier forgettable revival that won’t amount to anything more.

    Fingers crossed, though!

    Yooooooooooooooo! I was JUST thinking about Wild Guns. This is awesome! I hope it’s a retail game.

    we already have bloodborne. it’s called dark souls 1, 2 and 3.

    I’d just play both the pc and the ps4. I’m over getting super mad about 30fps in obscure japanese titles and the ps4’s getting some exclusives that I want now. so pc and ps4neo ftw. fuck the xbone. no one gives a shit about the xbone.

    Wow, never expected that, I used to play that game a lot with my friends when I was a kid, that game was a lot of fun with some great action and great music, and I don’t care about if it is exclusive for PS4 of if ends up comming to PC, I just hope this “remake” is good, that’s all I want

    Good move, I sure as hell can’t afford the SNES version.

    Why? Why only PS4. Give us PC at least.

    It’s no Alisia Dragoon comeback but I’ll take it. Wild Guns is a great hidden gem and that minigun powerup is so satisfying.

    The Atari Jaguar?

    The xbone is a mess, such a low energy console.

    May 12, 2016 at 10:35 pm

    you see I’d do that but if i have to choose between a console, and a way better video card and some games or whatever, I’m gonna pick the gpu and games. Once you have a respectable basic platform pc upgrading it is way cheaper than investing in a console.

    Well, if you happen to own a Wii or Wii U, the Virtual Console version might be a bit more affordable :)

    Lufia is owned by Taito, which is in turn owned by Square-Enix. If they made a new one, we’d love to work on it, but the series is out of our hands :(

    Annie’s fine legs in 1080p will be a visual feast.

    Holy shit, this game was hard as balls back in the day. I remember that I almost cried when I beat it with my childhood friend.

    Why would anyone make a game for the NX? Considering there’s not been any leaks about the specs, the devs probably have just as little information about it as we do.

    Lufia’s been fucked in the ass by Square, like Ogre Battle.

    It was a jest.

    We know nothing and I assume nothing.
