Kadokawa Games Has been revealing new details, screenshots, and artwork about the upcoming mecha strategy JRPG Relayer.

This time around we hear about the PS4 version.

According to the developers, the seamless transition to cutscenes and the video quality is comparable to the PS5 version. A gameplay video will be shared soon.

In the tweet below, we take a look at a counter. Basically, if you attack an enemy equipped with a weapon that has the same range as yours, you’ll receive a counter. The trick is to aim at enemies with different ranges or switching your weapon with something else.

In the following tweet, you can see that the icons representing the equipped weapon are pink and yellow. Yellow weapons deliver physical attacks, while pink deliver gravity-based attacks.

Below you can see a Dark Gear, which is a kind of mecha used by Relayer bosses. They have four types like the Stella Gear.

Below is a Quasar, a humanoid mecha used widely by pretty much everyone, from the United Earth Governmet Army to space pirates. Quasar also exists in four different types, and in the latter part of the story, you’ll see Quasar II, an advanced version of these machines.

Story

Humanity is not alone in the universe.

In the year 2049, mankind finally meets intelligent life: the Relayers. Around the same time, the discovery of an ancient alien civilization sets the wheels of fate in motion for the Starchildren, humans bestowed with unique powers.

Then, in the year 2051, our story begins one fateful day when two young women cross paths in Artemis, a colony located on the surface of the Moon. Get ready for an intergalactic adventure where humans and ancient aliens meet, and our stellar neighbors come to life!

Setting

Relayer takes place in the Milky Way galaxy, within our solar system. In the not-too-distant future, humanity has extended its sphere of influence to Jupiter, with the moon and Mars already established as colonies. Humanity’s very existence is threatened by mysterious extraterrestrials known as the Relayers, who plan to annihilate the universe. As if in response to the Relayers’ invasion, the Starchildren, human successors to the wills of the stars, awaken.

A simulation RPG where you lead your troops to victory using strategy & 4 different types of spacecraft!

In Relayer, players participate in turn-based battles, where each different unit plays its own specific role in combat. There are four different types of Stellar Gear, or spacecraft controlled by a Starchild: Assault, Sniper, Tank, and Scout. Each type’s attack range and weaponry vary, so players will be required to position themselves according to the unique battle situation.

Players can also employ various combat strategies, such as using “hate” to draw the enemy’s attention, allowing certain allies to act as decoys, and calling upon allies to push the enemy back.

This is the first new simulation RPG for PS5 from the highly acclaimed GOD WARS development team!

Overcome challenges by customizing your character’s occupation!

In Relayer, each character can be assigned to one of the 20 unique job types and 20+ general-purpose jobs in-game. Jobs distinguish your character as an individual, and it can even give you an advantage in battle! There are over 80 jobs to choose from, and each one is unique.

An interstellar adventure with more than 80 stages!

In addition to the main scenario, Relayer contains 80+ stages, including the side story The Asterism’s Voyage, which is unlocked as the story progresses. Enjoy the episodes that delve into the characters’ backgrounds, solve the mystery of the birth of the Moon—a science fiction fan-favorite—and experience the world of Relayer to the fullest!
