Today Square Enix released a new video of the upcoming survival shooter Left Alive, and this time around it’s focusing on the Wanzer mecha.
The video includes question and answers session in which director Toshifumi Nabeshima talks with mecha designer Takayuki Yanase, who is well known for working on Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, Xenoblade Chronicles X, the Mobile Suit Gundam 00 anime, and many more. The focus of the Q&A, which unfortunately is fully in Japanese, is the design of the Volk Wanzer that appears in the game.
That being said, we also see some segment of gameplay showing the Volk in action, which is great because we haven’t seen much of that, even if Nabeshima-san promised that Front Mission fans will have plenty of chances to sit at the controls of a mecha.
Incidentally, the video also shows the Zhelanie P3 as it gets maimed by the player.
The Wanzer are basically the strongest point of connection with the original Front Mission series, so it’s always good to be able to see more of them.
You can see the gameplay below, and the full video at the bottom of the post. If you want to read more about Left Alive, you can read our recent interview dedicated to the game.
Left Alive will release in Japan on Feb. 28, 2019, for PS4 and PC, and it’ll come west on March 5 for the same platforms.
