Square Enix has announced Left Alive, a new “survival action shooter”.

You can watch the announcement teaser trailer above. It doesn’t really show much apart from an apocalyptic world and some helicopters carrying giant mechs, though.

The game was announced during today’s PlayStation press conference, just ahead of the Tokyo Game Show that takes place this weekend. Details are currently very scarce, but more will be revealed during the convention in Japan.

What we do know, however, is who’s making Left Alive. Toshifumi Nabeshima, director of the Armored Core series, will be directing this game as well. Producer duties fall on Shinji Hashimoto, who previously worked on Front Mission and a few Final Fantasy titles.

The giant mechs you saw in the trailer are designed by Takayuki Yanase, who designed the mechs in Ghost in the Shell: Arise and Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Metal Gear fans probably already noticed that Yoji Shinkawa is behind the game’s character design. You can take a look at the official art below if you don’t believe me.

As I mentioned, more details on Left Alive will be revealed during the weekend. Meanwhile, Square Enix has announced the game will be out in 2018, on PC and PlayStation 4.
