Today Level-5 released a brand new trailer of its upcoming mecha action JRPG Megaton Musashi.
The trailer mixes gameplay with parts of the opening cutscene, and it’s rather epic. It also features the opening theme song “Metal Samurai” performed by Mana.
You can watch it below.
Megaton Musashi will release in Japan on November 11, 2021, for PS4 and Nintendo Switch, just in time to enjoy the visibility from the anime (which debuted a few weeks ago). It features a collaboration with Jump, so it includes plenty of tropes and a visual style that can appeal to Weekly Shonen Jump readers.
The game was supposed to come for PS5 as well, but the version for Sony’s new console simply disappeared without an explanation with a recent reveal. At the moment, at least to my knowledge, Level-5 has not commented on this and has simply gone ahead without mentioning the PS5 ever again.
A western release has not been announced or even hinted at. That being said, the Tokyo Game Show streams this year and last year were in English. On the other hand, the fact that it appeared only on the latest Japanese Nintendo Direct while skipping the English version isn’t a good sign.
