Clouded Leopard Entertainment and Kadokawa Games provided a new trailer about the latter’s upcoming mecha strategy JRPG Relayer.
The trailer provides an introduction to the Stella Gear and Dark Gear mecha in English, showing the various types and specific models.
We also learn more about the duration of the game. It’ll last you about 40 hours if you simply play the main scenario. Those will grow to roughly 60 if you also use the battle simulator to level up.
The “Asterism’s Voyage” content (including 35 battles) that unlocks after clearing the main story should also take about 40 hours to complete.
You can check out the trailer below.
Relayer will release simultaneously worldwide (including Japan, Asia, North America, and Europe) on March 24, 2022, for PS5 and PS4.

“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.”
