Sunsoft Reveals Three New Projects Based on Classic Games: Ikki Unite, Gimmick!, and Ufouria

Sunsoft has made its return. The developer held a virtual event where they decided to unveil three new titles in development based on classic games from their history, Ikki Unite, Gimmick!, and Ufouria.

Ikki Unite

Ikki Unite is a multiplayer co-op roguelike game based on the Ikki action games, which coined the term “kusoge” or “crap game” due to its poor quality at the time. Now, Ikki Unite realizes the developers’ original vision as players team up in small or large groups to battle a feudal overlord. The closed beta launches soon on Steam.

Gimmick! is currently in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam for a winter release. The challenging platformer taunts an addictive soundtrack from Ship to Shore. Players maneuver the tiny green toy Yumetaro through punishingly difficult levels to save its lost owner. The game will incorporate new features, such as a Time Attack mode and achievements. Gimmick! will be showcased in the Retro Gaming pavilion at Gamescom in Germany next week.


Ufouria, also known as Hebreke, is a Metroidvania-style series whose gameplay influenced many other popular titles, is expected to launch on consoles in 2023.

We’ll be able to share more information closer to each game’s release.
