According to Atlus, the Vanillaware title for PS4 that combines visual novel with strategy has sold 400,000 copies as of March 12; It was launched in Japan in November 2019, while it arrived in Spain and the rest of the West last September.
The game is new from the creators of Odin Sphere Y Dragon’s Crown, but this time away from 2D action to offer a complex sci-fi plot starring thirteen characters that give meaning to a story about kaijus – great monsters – and mechs. On the one hand, the story is developed with a 2D adventure and the characteristic visual style of Vanillaware, with conversations and interactions that will affect the way in which that branch of the story unfolds. But there is also a turn-based strategy part where we participate in the battles of the robots and the enemies, controlling the group of young people on maps that represent the cities.
