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.
