Gal Metal gets update to 1.0.1, Adds New Control Method

DMM, the developer, and producer of Gal Metal,  just released a new update to the game.

They also released a demo on the Nintendo Switch eShop in Japan.

Version 1.0.1 has quite a few updates, including adding a new control method, “Swing Mode”.  Full patch notes below:

  • Added setting to choose between two Joy-Con swing modes.

Current method, “Drum Mode”: A mode to play the game as if you are hitting drums.

New method, “Swing Mode”: A mode to play the game by simply swinging the Joy-Cons. This method is recommended for first-time players and those who find hitting drums difficult.

(“Swing Mode” will be the mode set at the start of the game.)

  • Added Joy-Con sensitivity settings for each swing mode. Sensitivity levels can be set between 1 and 20, and individually for each Joy-Con. (This can only be set when playing the game with Joy-Cons.)

(The initial sensitivity level will be 10.)

  • From the Practice screen, you can practice each song individually or in a group.

Solo Practice: Practice the rhythm patterns on your own and create new rhythms.

Group Practice: Repeatedly practice the selected song with the members of the Metal Club.

(The songs you can practice are the same as those unlocked in Free Play.)

When the game was first released, it was met with some mixed reviews on account of the delay between some televisions and displays.  Hopefully, this update also fixes this issue.
