Metal Max Xeno was recently announced for development for PlayStation 4 and Vita, and Kadokawa Games has wasted no time in showing for gameplay for the new game in the series! This first trailer features tanks and presumably the main characters, set to some rocking music. It’s a good first look at the game!
Give the trailer a watch:
The game is set in a country called Nippon (“ニッポン” or Japan) in the year 209X. The protagonist is a half-machine human named Thalys who has the power to take on powerful monsters. The heroine is named Toni. Her father died and she has tagged alongside Thalys after getting saved by him. There’s also a mechanic named Yokky who spends his days getting drunk. He uses a giant wrench that is bigger than himself as a weapon.
The tank is designed by Atsuji Yamamoto, and it is called “The Crimson Avenger R-Wolf.” You’ll get to use the tank to start preemptive strikes on enemies. The main enemies of the game are known as SoNs, and they’re monsters that intend to exterminate all humanity.
- The developers are looking to go back to the roots of tank and human RPG.
- The setting with the great destruction by Noah and the Blood Corporation is still intact, but it’ll take place in a different period of time.
- The setting is made to have a Tokyo-like vibe.
