Goonya Fighter

Mutan has announced party fighting game Goonya Fighter: Purupuru Shokkan Edition (title tentative) for PlayStation 5, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals. A release date was not announced.

Goonya Fighter first launched for Switch via the Nintendo eShop in June 2019, and has since sold over 160,000 copies.

Goonya Fighter: Purupuru Shokkan Edition for PlayStation 5 adds a new mode that introduces the “haptic feedback” technology of the DualSense controller, which allows players to feel the in-game action through dynamic feedback. Online battles seem to be limited to standard mode, however. New game modes unique to PlayStation 5 may also be added.

As previously announced, an arcade version of Goonya Fighter is also planned for release.

Here is an overview of the Switch version, via Nintendo.com:
