On the Nintendo Indie World Showcase, several indie games were shown with the final game reveal being Exit the Gungeon. While we knew that Exit the Gungeon was a thing, and that it was releasing on Nintendo Switch, but until today we didn’t know when. According to the trailer, Exit the Gungeon will be launching on Nintendo Switch as a timed console exclusive later today.

Yes, you read that correctly, Exit the Gungeon is available on Nintendo Switch today! Looking at the store page for Exit the Gungeon, the game is touted as a “bullet hell dungeon climber” that continues the adventures of the Gungeoneers from Enter the Gungeon.

“Armed with an ever-changing weapon, an insatiable need to loot, and the trusty dodge roll, each of our heroes must ascend and escape via their own unique route of increasingly perilous elevators. Battle against the last and most bitter of the Gundead at a frantic pace, slowing down just long enough to chat with some familiar faces… and a few new ones. Shifting rooms, enemies, bosses, bizarre weapons and items all combine to ensure that no two attempts to Exit the Gungeon are the same.”

Along with being able to play the latest Gungeon installment on Nintendo Switch, Exit the Gungeon is currently available on PC as of today. On Steam, you can now purchase Exit the Gungeon for $9.99. If you don’t own a Nintendo Switch or prefer playing on PC, it’s good to know that you have the ability to do so today as well!
