During Level-5’s livestream from Tokyo Game Show, the developer introduced new gameplay of its upcoming mecha action JRPG Megaton Musashi.
First of all, the developer showcased a trailer showcasing a variety of gameplay situations. Then we get an extensive video showcasing mecha customization, which affords the player with a ton of options.
We also get to see multiplayer battle gameplay all the way to a couple of boss, which looks like a lot of fun.
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 debuts today and you can watch the first episode below). 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 the latest reveal. At the moment, at least to my knowledge, Level-5 has not commented on this.
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 isn’t a good sign. If you want to see what it looks like, you can check out another recent trailer.
