Atlus announced today that the company will be publishing Drone Tactics, a game developed by Success. The new IP is a turn-based strategy RPG for the Nintendo DS.
Drone Tactics is set on an alien world where an army of Drones called the Black Swarm threaten to destroy the nation of Cimexus. The players must then defend the nation through tactical turn-based battles using their own Drone army. Players will have command of squads consisting of insect-like mecha with over 100 weapons, upgrades, and power-ups to customize their army. The game also promises 50 additional maps to supplement the main campaign mode and supports local wireless play whereby players can compete against one another.
Drone Tactics is currently scheduled for a March 25 release next year in North America, and has not yet been rated by the ESRB. Those interested to learn more about Drone Tactics can visit the game's official website.
