Today publisher Outright Games officially announced the western release of Zoids Wild Blast Unleashed.
The reveal was hinted at by a rating by the Australian board a few weeks ago and today we get official confirmation with a teaser trailer, which you can see below.
Zoids Wild Blast Unleashed is indeed the western release of Takara Tomy’s fighting game Zoids Wild: King of Blast, which was released for Nintendo Switch in Japan last year. It will come west on October 16 and it will remain exclusive to Nintendo’s console in North America and Europe as well.
Here’s an official description directly from the developer:
“Unleash the power and animal instinct of Zoids, in spectacular head-to-head battles! Your strength in combat will decide who is victorious between Arashi’s Team Freedom and the power-hungry Dark Metal Empire, in a new single-player story.
With stunning graphics faithful to the anime, and a simple 3D combat system that lets you chain combos instinctively, Zoids Wild: Blast Unleashed takes mecha combat to the next level!”
If you want to see more, you can also watch some gameplay and another gameplay trailer showing off all playable Zoids and characters. We also have another trailer showcasing Knuckle Kong and its pilot Foiegras, one featuring Scorpear and its pilot Penne, one starring Triceradogos alongside its pilot Gyoza, the fourth focusing on Stegosage and Truffle, and one more showing Fangtiger and leader of Supreme Bacon, and the latest featuring Death Rex and Grachiosaurus released as DLC in Japan.
