Bullet Girls (バレットガールズ) is an upcoming video game for the PlayStation Vita developed by Shade and published by D3 Publisher. The game is an action shooter video game, and has been compared to paintball by Gematsu and Senran Kagura by Siliconera. Bullet Girls takes place in a school that serves upper class girls, and focuses on the Ranger Club, whose members undertake military missions in their spare time. The game will be released on August 28, 2014, exclusively in Japan.
Bullet Girls revolves around a group of high school girls whom are part of their school's Ranger Club, alternately known as the Ranger Corps, which trains them on using weapons and different types of military missions used on battlefields. There are a variety of missions within the game ranging from offensive to defensive, each with a variety of objectives, which include wiping out enemy forces, reaching a specific point on the map, collecting items and teaming up with other club members who will then engage in combat with the player. A wide range of weapons are usable, including handguns, rifles, recoil-less rifles, and shotguns, among others. Characters can hold up to four different weapons, which can be exchanged during missions. Military vehicles, such as tanks, armoured vehicles, and helicopters can be found in the game as well. Many game maps feature in Bullet Girls, ranging from the schoolyard to the desert.
A notable gameplay mechanic of Bullet Girls is clothes degradation. As the girls take hits and lose health points, their clothing gets torn up thus revealing what they are wearing underneath. Specific parts of the girls' clothing can be targeted to reveal that specific area; additionally, to help complement this feature, the game contains "a slew of cut-in images, as well as 39 unique bits of erotic acting meant to play up the sexual aspects of the game." The game also features "interrogation training scenes", used to "extract critical information from the opposing side", but is mostly just touching and groping the girls. There are over 1,600 patterns of undergarments for the girls; these can be customised by the player.
