    Square-Enix is working on a 3DS game based on the Japanese anime "Gyrozetter", it's going to hit store shelves in Japan June 13th.

    What's the game all about? It's a JRPG set in 2053 featuring vehicles which can transform into mechs owned by young students battling the evil forces of Xenon... sounds familiar? Yeah, it's Japanese transformers.

    Square-Enix worked closely with Japanese automobile companies including Toyota, Subaru, Nissan, Mazda and Mitsubishi so we're sure to see some "familiar faces", or to be more exact, "familiar hoods" in this one.

    The game will 5,490 yen at retail and 5,000 yen on the eShop, there's no word on a localization.

    Mmm should have mentioned the platform, 3DS. I guessed it was for a Nintendo hardware with E-Shop stated.

    I forgot to mention that, yes - I already reported myself for it so the Mods should fix the title soon, sorry about that. ;)

    Wasn't Transformers Japanese to begin with?

    Well, the original "Proto-transformers" (Wikipedia tells me they were called Microman and Diaclone) lines of toys, yes, but they were almost immediately swallowed by Hasbro and "Americanized" so I don't really treat them as a Japanese thing. :P

    Well, I quite enjoy the anime, it also has a manga running since 2011... If the game is anything like the anime I'd personally like it, it's a pretty cool anime and the story is quite fun, it could make an interesting game.

    Oh, and I find the ending pretty cool:




    Gotta love mechas that can dance. =3


    I'd be interested in a localisation of this, but I highly doubt it since it appears to be related to the anime.

    I just realized that! :lol:

    Yeah, it's from the game, someone must've made a typo in the press pack. I'll replace it with one that doesn't look silly. :P

    After checking, it appears the game is some sort of Turn-Based RPG, that's pretty cool.

    I heard about this some time ago. They used a mix of real cars and made up cars in the game. Hopefully they bring it over to us so I can try it out.

    Fighting as a Toyota Corolla... whelp. Or as a Volkswagen-- nope, Bumblebee already did that.
