Pre-registrations have opened for the upcoming turn-based strategy game ‘Shooting Girl’, offering players the chance to win special bonus characters in the ten-day period before launch. Originally a popular Japanese-language online title, Shooting Girl has been localized by game publisher Nutaku and is due for release on June 29th.
In Shooting Girl, players are challenged to expel an alien invader from Tokyo using the last fighting forces remaining to Japan: a group of heavily armed schoolgirls. By recruiting, training, and outfitting characters with the latest military technology, they’ll be placed in command of a liberation war that will wage across the 32 wards of the city.
Each character in Shooting Girl is armed with a unique real-world firearm, from the bolt-action Mauser 98 to the H&K MP7 submachine gun. Girls’ personalities and abilities are matched to their weapons: hard-charging shotgun enthusiasts will close with and destroy the enemy in close quarters combat, while icy snipers pick off targets at range. Players will be able to set tactics for each girl dependent upon the situation, ordering their troops to provide cover, flank, or close range as the situation demands.
