Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase brings a ton of newly announced games, and several titles that were previously available on other platforms have also been confirmed to arrive on the Nintendo Switch. As for the latter, the indie game We Are OFK has been announced to arrive on the Switch alongside the PlayStation console. Regarding new games, publisher Devolver Digital has announced that they are working together again with Doinksoft to develop a new game called Gunbrella.
Gunbrella puts the player in the role of a jungler seeking revenge in an action adventure. The player is equipped with a genuine Gunbrella, a gun that, as expected, can also transform into a sturdy umbrella to block incoming projectiles and even give the player some extra jumping and Surfing. Gunbrella is a spin-off, which means the player can use his umbrella almost like a power-up item in the platformer games. Devolver Digital has come up with some powerful sub-browsers before, such as Katana Zero.
Katana Zero is more of a neo-noir than a punk-noir, but also has a sense of mystery due to the protagonist’s amnesia. Gunbrella will also feature some intense battles, as the game showcases the gameplay of what appears to be a boss fight against a giant rat. Strange creatures seem to be a part of Gunbrella’s world, as some quirky characters will become enemies, while others will help the player in their quest for revenge.

The player’s investigation will become “entangled with the inner workings of vampires and gangsters, police and believers, as well as the failure of corporate exploits,” as Doinksoft describes it. . Due to the anomalous nature of the Gunbrella world, resources to upgrade a player’s weapon will be rather scarce, although weapons and umbrellas can be improved.
In addition to the exciting combat and exciting setting, Gunbrella will also allow players to use their detective skills to both seek revenge and aid the game’s side characters. Similar to other successful detective games like Disco Elysium, Gunbrella will allow players to make choices that affect the outcome of a certain quest, as seen in the trailer when two NPCs claim the same gem.
