Level-5, Inc. is well-known for Professor Layton, Inazuma Eleven, and Yokai Watch.
We had the pleasure of visiting their booth at the "Tokyo Game Show 2021 Online" offline!
This time, Level-5 exhibited " Megaton Class Mus ashi," which is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2021 (Thursday).
Megaton Musashi" tells the story of a giant robot called Rogue that fights aliens and recaptures the Earth in order to reclaim the Earth that was stolen from an alien named Draktar.
The game will be released on multiple platforms, including PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, but only the Nintendo Switch version was on display at the event.
We had the chance to play the Nintendo Switch version at the event, and here's what we learned!
First, let's customize your Rogue!
I can't wait to try out the actual rogues, but before I do, I'm going to customize the rogues I'll be using!
The customizable parts are "body", "light arm", "left arm", and "leg", and you can assemble your favorite parts and customize them as you like.
There are also a wide variety of weapons to equip, and I had a hard time choosing the right one....
After customizing each part of the robot, the next step is visual customization.
Marks can be positioned in fine detail, up, down, left, and right, and even the metallic coating and reflections can be adjusted in great detail!
This is similar to the feeling you get when assembling a plastic model and adding your own modifications.
After customizing the weapons, parts, and visuals, you are ready to go into battle!
During this sortie, a movie of the customized rogue's battle scene will be shown.
Rogue in the battlefield!
The controls are not difficult to use and combo moves are easy to perform, giving the player a sense of speed in battle.
The game is also beginner-friendly, as special move commands are displayed when performing special moves.
Megaton-class special moves explode with special move names!
And when a part part breaks down, the movement speed slows down or changes if the equipment is actually damaged, in which case the part can be repaired.
However, in such cases, the game is still in progress without pausing, so the timing of repair is also important!
The boss characters that appear as the battle progresses also make a powerful appearance, along with their boss names!
The explosion scene when a boss-class character is defeated!
We could taste the exhilarating battle!
You can obtain new items by defeating bosses and clearing stages!
Equip the weapons you acquire as you go to create powerful rogues!
Now accepting reservations!
Megaton Musashi" will be released on PlayStation4 and Nintendo Switch on November 11, 2021!
Only the packaged version of "Megaton Musashi" will include a serial code for an item that can be used in the game as a bonus.
There will also be other special offers for purchase at different retailers, and more will be added in the future.
The anime will start airing on October 1 (Fri.), so keep your eyes on "Megaton-Class Musashi" for more developments in the future!
