Today Kadokawa Games announced the post-launch content roadmap for its upcoming mecha strategy JRPG Relayer.
As you can see in the infographic below, following the launch in March, April will see the release of the Mecha Remodeling System that will let you customize the robots, on top of the “Spin-off stories” voiced scenario that will provide more details on the characters.
Starting with May, the NEXT Stella Gear (modified version of the mecha) will start being released with Astria, followed by Amaterasu and Petasos in June, and Herschel in July.
All of these DLC will be paid, but the Mecha Remodeling system will be free.
Incidentally, today we also got a cutesy video to celebrate the release of the demo, which will also launch tonight in English.
Relayer will release simultaneously worldwide (including Japan, Asia, North America, and Europe) on March 24, 2022, for PS5 and PS4.
If you’d like to learn more about the game, you can check out an official description below.
“A next-generation robot SRPG set in a sci-fi alternate reality, in which Starchildren—humans who have been granted special abilities—take on an extraterrestrial threat. Relayer’s battle system focuses on combat robot types and jobs, which represent a unit’s unique characteristics, and aggro, a stat which visualizes how easily they are targeted by enemies. Relayer also features exciting special attacks such as Backstab, a pincer move, and Big Bang, a move with a vast area of effect. Approximately 100 unique cutscenes play during battles throughout the game, and stage maps are all illustrated in high-quality, full 3D.
The story takes place on Earth in the year 2051, in a future where humanity’s expansion into outer space is in full swing. Earth is in the midst of an invasion by mysterious extraterrestrial beings called Relayers. Humans with special abilities, called Starchildren, have also appeared, along with the legacy of an ancient alien civilization that is said to have died out centuries ago. Players command a squadron of Stellar Gear, humanoid weapons developed from the technology of that extinct alien civilization, and the Asterism, a ship capable of interstellar travel, to defend Earth from the invading Relayer aliens.”
