Gear Up And Roll Out
In eleven days, live the robot dream
If the ’80s and ’90s taught us anything, it’s that there’s only one solution to an army of evil robots hell-bent on the destruction of humankind: more robots. But ones that aren’t evil this time.
Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo takes this powerful truth to heart, and plops you into the pilot’s seat of a big robot so you can punch, shoot, and otherwise destroy hordes of evil machines. Arc System Works, developer of world-class fighting games such as the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series, is bringing its brand new Mech-Action RPG to the West on PlayStation Vita.
As one of the members of FREYA, the robot-fightin’-est outfit on the planet, you’ll use your GEAR (good robot) to beat the ever-loving snot out of the RAGE (bad robots, anagram of “GEAR”). And these mechanics just wouldn’t be RPG-inspired if they didn’t involve picking parts off the metallic corpses of your defeated foes and bolting them onto your own rattling, death-dealing hulk of steel! So naturally you can do that too.
If all of that tickles your fancy, and you’re one of the people with enough taste to own a PlayStation Vita, then come March 24, 2015–a mere eleven days–you’ll sitting pretty. If, through some strange combination of evil forces, you remain unconvinced of the quitless legitness of Damascus Gear, then feast your eyes on these red-hot features:
- Blades, chainsaws, laser cannons, pile bunkers, and many other weapons for your fightin’ robot.
- Scores of different parts to make your GEAR match your fighting style.
- Tense story mode that documents humankind’s last, desperate struggle for survival.
- Play the mission-based story progression or fight arena-mode versus AI.
- DLC with new armor, weapons, and missions.
