The footage from the Nintendo Treehouse, embedded under (and captured by NintendoEverything), alternates between gameplay footage and varied descriptions of the sport’s mechanics. It opens with the participant working round a base the place they will customise their avatar’s look (and select their gender). The character designer from Fireplace Emblem Awakening labored on the sport, and it reveals within the face choices.
Within the base you may view your mechs, and outfit the partitions with weapons you’ve collected. It appears to be like cool.
The footage additionally incorporates a couple of battles from close to the start of the sport, together with what is basically a tutorial stage the place, in-game, your pilot is assessed on whether or not or not they’re able to dealing with their mech. All of the enemies within the video games – together with different mechs – are being piloted by A.I., apparently, so until that adjustments (or there are boss battles towards different characters), you’re not killing ‘folks’ whenever you blow up your enemies.
You’ll be able to decide up objects within the setting and hurl them at enemies, or take them down by destroying buildings they’re standing on or below. Some mech customisation is proven off too – later within the video one of many mechs will get outfitted with a really cool sword.
It appears to be like like enjoyable, but additionally like there’s a little bit of polish left to do. No launch date has been set, however we’d count on to be ready till late 2019.
