“Bishoujo Battle: Double Strike!” To Receive a Physical Release in April
Lonely and at home without a date this St. Valentine’s Day, fellas? Well, game publisher Funbox Media may have a solution for you if you find yourself in a similar situation next year.*
Funbox recently announced a partnership with Eastasiasoft and Zoo Corporation to release a physical edition of Bishoujo Battle: Double Strike!, a compilation of both Bishoujo Battle Mahjong Solitaire and Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic!, which were previously only available in digital format.
The Bishoujo Battle: Double Strike! physical editions will be coming to both Nintendo Switch and PS4 on 15 April 2022. As an added bonus for Nintendo loyalists, the Switch version comes with a free stylus. Yosh!
Here’s the official breakdown of both games from Funbox:
Bishoujo Battle: Mahjong Solitaire
Let the mobile military girls of “Rikku G Earth” be your companions as classic tile-matching gets more exhilarating than ever! Find pairs of mahjong tiles to remove them from the board. Plan your moves strategically and stay ahead of the clock to claim victory. Every 3 rounds of play, you’ll unlock a new costume for the girls, and more will be revealed as you progress.
Of course, the important part of any solitaire game is replayability. With more than 100 tile layouts and randomized patterns, Bishoujo Battle Mahjong Solitaire offers endless incentive to keep coming back for more, just in case the anime-style fan service isn’t reason enough. You can also view unlocked characters and costumes in the Dressing Room!
• Match tiles and beat the clock to win each exciting round!
• Reveal new costumes for each girl.
• Discover 2 hidden characters!
• View unlocked images in the Dressing Room.
• Enjoy unlimited replay value with 100+ layouts and random patterns!
Bishoujo Battle: Cyber Panic!
Inspired by the naughty back-room arcades of ‘90s Japan, Bishoujo Battle Cyber Panic! offers the instant gratification of a sub-genre that’s both easy to learn and fun to master. Start each action-packed stage with a silhouetted girl behind the playfield and dodge enemies while drawing lines that cut away when connected, methodically uncovering the image underneath.
It’s a game of risk-vs-reward as you capture as much of the playfield as possible without enemies or bullets crossing your path. Will you whittle away at smaller and safer zones along the edge, or will you go for higher scores by cutting into enemy territory? Box in power-ups to use their effects, unlock completed images in the gallery and share your victories across online leaderboards!
• Rescue anime-style mecha girls in 50 unique stages!
• Decide your own strategy in freeform gameplay.
• Adapt to gradually increasing difficulty.
• Unlock special 5-star challenges with the girls in alternate outfits!
• View your captured images in Gallery mode.
• Enjoy a pumping soundtrack that will get you in the mood.
• Share high scores with online leaderboards.
The Bishoujo Battle: Double Strike! physical editions will be coming to both Nintendo Switch and PS4 on 15 April 2022.
*In all honesty, single fellas, I’d encourage you stay heartened and keep trying with the whole girlfriend thing. Just steer clear of the crazy ones…
