Secret Ponchos is to be released on the PC, its developer announced today.

The shoot-em-up spaghetti western is already scheduled to launch on the PlayStation 4 later this year but now its developer, Switchblade Monkeys, announced today that it will also be launching on PC due to popular demand.

Switchblade also said that they are currently working on Secret Ponchos for a Beta launch this summer via Early Access.

“Since we first previewed the game at PAX East there has been an overwhelming amount of demand to bring the game to PC in addition to PS4, and we always promised we would do our best,” said Yousuf Mapara, creative director at Switchblade Monkeys.

“We realized Early Access would be the perfect program for this; it creates an environment where we can self-fund development of the PC version to make it a reality, in addition to exposing all versions of the game to a broader round of polish and tuning that you can only get when developing with an actual beta community of players.”

Two screenshots of the PC version, shown below, were also released.

Set in the Wild West, Secret Ponchos sees the player control an outlaw with a bounty of his head. In order to survive the player must defeat opponents, controlled by other players, in one-v-one duels and claim their achievements as his own.

Players can also compete in western style gang fights and Free-For-All modes.
