Smash-hit boss rush game Furi released in the far-off past date of 2016, and has since been played and loved by gamers around the world over. For those who don’t know, there isn’t much official info for furi that you can find through official channels, but the little description there is reads like so; ‘You were captured. Look what they’ve done to you… The jailer is the key, kill him and you’ll be free. Fight your way free in this ultra-responsive, fast-paced sword fighting and dual-stick shooting game. Boss design by Takashi Okazaki. Original soundtrack by Carpenter Brut, Danger, The Toxic Avenger, Lorn, Scattle, Waveshaper and Kn1ght!’
Now, six years later, The Game Breakers have announced an all-new DLC for the game.
Onnamusha is the name of the new expansion for the game, where you play as Onnamusha Rider, described as; ‘a powerful fighter that alternates between two stances: fast and agile or slower but lethal until she’s able to unleash the devastating power of the Star. The new gameplay mechanics bring new challenges, for a complete rediscovery of the game.’
The inspiration for this DLC is commendable, and something I sympathise with as a fan of the game, Emeric Thoa explains; “We read all the messages from Furi players and this one really stuck with us: “I wish I could forget Furi to discover it all over again”. This is how we got the idea of the Onnamusha fighter that brings a completely different playstyle with a layer of tactics.”
This new DLC allows the game to be played again in story, speedrun or practice modes, but the DLC isn’t the only new content; The studio will also publish a free update to the base game on all platforms, that includes all paid and free content available for Furi: One More Fight DLC and all the improvements made since the release (Invincible Mode, Furier Speedrun, Alternate controls…).
