Finally … It’s been two full months (feels like 20 years) since we last heard the holy news that Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Girl was adapted to – of all the fucking stuff – a hell of a shmup. Publisher Bushinroad, in collaboration with developer Kaminari Games, has finally reappeared with a new trailer that gives us our first look at the GOTY 2022 challenger.

Presented by none other than Tohru himself, the new video features the first footage in the game of the concise title Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Burst Forth !! Choro-gon breathing, who will watch the hard-working maid and her barking friends take to the skies for vertically rolling, wave-breaking action. My dragonese is a little rusty, but from what I can understand from Tohru-chan, Choro-gon breathing will allow players to take on the delightful trio of Elma, Kanna and Tohru as they battle through intense shmup gameplay, set against the backdrop of a completely original tale set in Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid universe.

The shmup will feature selective power-ups and the mighty “D-Gauge” mechanic, which allows our heroes to unleash their innate dragon powers. The story mode offers multiple endings and features over 30 unlockable illustrations and “mini-dramas” made specifically for the game by a number of artists familiar with the anime and manga series. I have to admit that the footage shown here is hardly brilliant, but for Miss Kobayashi fans – and maybe shmup fans in general – this seems to be a perfect timekeeper. And we can all use a little more Kanna in our lives. Sick and cutie pie.

Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid: Burst Forth !! Choro-gon breathing launches in Japan on PS4 and Switch on March 24. It’s unlikely to receive a localization, but the franchise has its fair share of fans on these shores, so one should never say never.
