Naisu announced that their Qix-like arcade game, Mokoko X, coming to PC-via Steam on April 7, 2022. An Xbox One and Nintendo Switch release are also planned.
This is a sequel to the original Mokoko, which featured similar gameplay mechanics. However, it was announced that this version of the game will be pulled from Steam in a month, without much of a reason given.
Mokoko X features 32 levels with 24 boss battles. The remaining 8 levels are considered “mega-levels” where the players will fight 3 bosses from the previous levels at the same time. The goal here is to help the girls by uncovering sections of the portrait without taking damage.
The game features Japanese and English voiceovers for the characters and animated illustrations. There are various enemies throughout the game along with traps, towers, create, and bonus effects. An arcade mode has been added, but the story mode does feature some interactions with the girls as you can inspect their rooms.
This game was announced months before release, but at this time it doesn’t seem the developer is looking to launch another Kickstarter as the original received. Regardless, will cover its development.
