Today Level-5 released new trailers and a TV commercial of its upcoming mecha action JRPG Megaton Musashi.
The first trailer outlines the differences in storytelling between the game and the anime, with some scenes that appear differently in the two media.
The second showcases the gameplay, and the TV commercial (which is the third video) transports the Musashi in the real world to celebrate the game’s release.
You can watch both below.
Megaton Musashi releases in Japan today (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. If you want to see what it looks like, you can check out another recent trailer.
