During yesterday’s Nintendo Indie World Showcase, Konami announced the remake of GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon for PC and Nintendo Switch
The original game released in 1987 for the Famicom, the remake is being developed primarily by indie studio GuruGuru under the direction of Konami Digital Entertainment.
GetsuFumaDen: Undying Moon combines intense roguelite hack-and-slash action with a stunning dark fantasy world, brought to life through the stroke of traditional Japanese art. As the chosen leader and guardian of the land of the living, wield the otherworldy arsenal and powers of the Getsu clan as you descend deeper into the depths of Hell to eradicate the source of the cataclysm.
After 1,000 years of peace, the seal to the gate of hell has been ripped open and a flood of evil spirits have been released into the world. As it stands at the brink of destruction, Getsu Fuma must take on the helm as the leader of his clan and delve into the pits of hell to rip out the evil at its core.

- Authentic Roguelite Action: While death is not the end, the world of Hell lives and breathes, presenting new map layouts and challenges to overcome with each attempt.
