War games with giant, gun toting mechanical monstrosities never get old. Add to that formula a classic 80s franchise like Zoids and you’ve got a game that nails its target demographic. Zoids Assault does just that and does it exclusively on the Xbox 360.
Publisher Atlus describes Zoids Assault as a “gritty militaristic strategy RPG” where players get to take command of a fleet of giant biomechanical life forms. It features advanced military tactics options and players must use all their tools and advantages to overcome vast armies and; first-class customization, with upgrades including melee weapons, rockets, rifles, machine guns, shotguns, cannons and more.
Zoids Assault takes place 10 years after a major war between the Guylos Empire and the Republic of Helic. Since then, the nations of Maroll and Jamil have been in a tense cold war. The game picks up the plot here after a mysterious explosion rocks one of Maroll’s military bases and two covert ops teams are sent into Jamil territory, destination unknown.
The T-rated Zoids Assult will join Operation Darkness and Spectral Force 3 in Atlus’ 2008 lineup on August 26, further demonstrating their love for the Xbox 360 and the strategy RPG genre.
