By the end of September, Xbox One owners can finally get their hands on the tastiest sidescrolling shooter/brawler around, Guns, Gore & Cannoli. As a bonus for being so patient, some extra free skins are included in the download. Cannoli skins.
Guns, Gore, and Cannoli is a 2D shooter platformer in the style of Metal Slug with four player local co-op. The narrative centers around Vinnie Cannoli, a hitman for the mob tasked with going to Thugtown to rescue a certain man of note from a rival family. However, Thugtown is going through a rough patch in 1920's Prohibition America, with everyone in town turning into zombies after consuming poison liquor during a Saint Patty's day throwdown. Time for some "negotiations", mobster style.
The PC release went down smooth this past April, and ever since developer Crazy Monkey Studios has been preparing the console release. Xbox One owners get their piece September 25th. The PS4 and Wii U versions are still in the oven, but don't worry, they're on the way! In the meantime, check out our complete Guns, Gore & Cannoli Co-Op Review to see how the four player cooperative game plays out in real, zombie mobster life.
