Furi, the now six-year-old psychedelic boss rush extravaganza from developer The Game Bakers, is poised to breathe new life later this month, on May 17th, with the arrival of its newly announced Onnamusha DLC.
Furi – previously described by The Game Bakers as a “love letter to Japanese action games like No More Heroes, Metal Gear Solid and Godhand” – was first released on PC in 2016 and pits its protagonist, The Stranger, against 12 incredibly stylish bosses. Each encounter was very different – each boss requires entirely new strategies to defeat – but it’s all built around the game’s streamlined one-on-one dash-and-slash action.
Onnamusha aims to refresh Furi’s six year old core by giving players a brand new protagonist to use in the existing story, speedrun and practice modes.
Dubbed the Onnamusha Rider, the new character is a powerful fighter who can switch between two stances – the fast and agile Spark stance or the slower but deadly Storm stance – to maximize the damage of filling a meter and her “devastating” star power.
Furi’s Onnamusha DLC will cost $6.99 when it releases on May 17th for PlayStation, Switch and PC. It will arrive alongside a free base game update, granting all players access to Furi’s previous One More Fight DLC and adding his various post-launch updates – including Invincible Mode, Furier Speedrun, Alternative Controls – for all platforms.
