Gal Gun: Double Peace worldwide sales top 100,000

The girl shooting game reaches six figures.

Gal Gun: Double Peace

Gal Gun: Double Peace has sold over 100,000 units worldwide, developer Inti Creates announced.

In a blog post, Gal Gun: Double Peace localization director and producer Matt Papa discussed how the game came to be released outside of Japan. To summarize it, Papa pitched a localization to his boss while the game was still in development, but was told that the team didn’t have the confidence that it would sell outside of Japan.

However, a tweet sent out by Papa from Inti Creates’ English Twitter account on Gal Gun: Double Peace‘s Japanese release date changed its fate. It asked, “Would you like to see Gal*Gun localized some day? Let us know!” By the next day, that tweet became the champion in terms of most views and impressions on Inti Creates’ Twitter account, and a number of websites were talking about it. From there, Papa pitched the idea again and within a few days a localization was decided.

Gal Gun: Double Peace first launched for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan on August 6, 2015, followed by Europe on July 22, 2016, and North America on August 2. A PC version was released worldwide a month later, on September 27. In Japan, a re-release, dubbed Gal Gun: Double Peace Bilingual, is due out on February 23.
