Developer Inti Creates has annouced they’ve cancelled the Xbox One version of Gal Gun Returns.
The reasoning behind the Xbox One version being cancelled is to “ensure consistency” on the platform, after the game was reviewed by Microsoft and Inti Creates had discussed its release with the platform holder.
This likely means Microsoft wanted content cut before it could be officially released on Xbox, to which Inti Creates decided to just cancel the Xbox version as they want to maintain the same content across all platforms.
“As a remaster of the original Gal Gun, we wanted to strive to ensure that we stayed true to the spirit of the first entry in the Gal Gun series,” Inti Creates said in the statement.
They added, “And while development of the Xbox version was complete and the ROM master under review, it became apparent, after productive discussion with Microsoft, that we would be unable to ensure consistency of experience across all platforms.”
Gal Gun Returns is still launching for Nintendo Switch in Japan on January 28th, 2021, followed by a western release on Nintendo Switch and Windows PC (via Steam) on February 12th.
