The release date for Goonya Monster has been set for December 4, 2022.

In addition to Steam, the game will also be released on Switch and PlayStation 5.

In August this year, their song “Utakata Lullaby” from the movie One Piece Film Red became the talk of the town.

■ Game Overview

Buster: Master a Diverse Set of Weapons and Carry a Fixed Amount of Souls to the Goal

Three players are Busters. Lasers, shotguns, and flamethrowers are some of the weapons you can master to help you fight alongside other players.

Busters win by successfully carrying a fixed amount of “Souls” over to the goal. Defeat Undead enemies that spawn throughout the stage and pick up their “Souls.”

Undead enemies also attack Busters. Take them down before they take you down.

Monsters fair better in a one-on-one fight. Working together and coordinating your movement with your teammates is the key to victory.

If You Die, You Can Still Continue the Game as a Ghost

A Buster enters the ghost state when their life reaches zero. Ghosts cannot attack, but they are not attacked by monsters. You can move and carry souls as normal and can easily be brought back to life if you have a Buster near you.
