Giant robots are among my favorite things.
I think it has something to do with the fact that I grew up watching Power Rangers. I even enjoyed both Pacific Rim movies, and have a small display of Gundam figures.
So you can understand why I’m pretty psyched for Override: Mech City Brawl, a 3D fighting game set in real-world cities, where building-sized mechs duke it out with devastating results.
The game is being developed by indie studio The Balance Inc. and published by Modus Games, whom you might remember as the publishers of Extinction.
Enough talking! Let’s see some robots punch each other and stuff; that’s what we’re here for.
That’s some cool giant robot action. All robots look so sleek and colorful, with their own theme and style.
There are 12 mechs in total, ranging from the retro-looking Vintage to the Optimus Prime doppelganger Watchbot and the Egyptian-themed Setesh. You also have three lady-robots, so there’s a good diverse cast of mechanic heroes.
I think my favorite is probably Metageckon – that red Godzilla look-a-like you can see spinning around the 1-minute mark.
Luckily, we’ll get to learn all about all the different robots throughout the game’s story mode, in which it seems we will be set to fight giant aliens. Typical.
Apart from a story mode, Override: Mech City Brawl will feature local and online multiplayer and a local co-op mode where multiple players control a single robot (talk about Megazord vibes).
Override: Mech City Brawl is set to launch on December 4, for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
But wait, there’s more – you can already sign up for the closed beta, which will be held between August 10-12.
Until then, we have a lot of delightfully colorful screenshots for you to drool over, so please do.
