For far too long, western audiences have been left without the opportunity to battle a brontosaur merged with a battleship. Unfortunately, some creepy characters and a lack of balance detract from Metal Max Xeno’s entertaining oddities.
Metal Max Xeno
Kadokawa Games looks to refresh the armoured vehicle RPG series.
Metal Max is an intriguing concept for an RPG, centered around vehicular tank combat in a blasted post-apocalyptic urban setting. Western audiences haven’t seen much of this series in the past, and Xeno’s awkward narrative and obtuse technical systems aren’t going to change that anytime soon.
NIS America sets the stage and introduces the world of Metal Max Xeno with a pair of new trailers. Join Talis and company on their quest to save a human race on the brink of extinction.
NIS America has plenty of new videos for RPGamers. God Wars — which is out now on Switch in Europe, next week in North America — Metal Max Xeno, and Disgaea 1 Complete each receives a pair of trailers.
The Metal Max universe features humans struggling for survival in a post-apocalyptic setting overrun with tanks. The latest trailer from NIS America confirms the existence of girls in this world as well.
Metal Max Xeno’s western release has been confirmed by NIS America, albeit on just a single platform. With the game just about to release in Japan, Kadokawa Games also provided a final Japanese trailer.
