Fuga: Melodies of Steel tells the story of a group of anthropomorphic animal kids caught in the middle of a war. As the Berman empire invades the Free Lands of Gasco, they take up arms to save their loved ones. During the initial shock of war reaching the small pacific village they lived in, the children find a massive tank with a special cannon capable of devastating attacks at the cost of sacrificing one of themselves.

The gameplay of Fuga has players follow an order of actions. The player’s arsenal is a tank with a Machine Gun that can delay an enemy’s turn, Cannon, which weakens enemy armor, and Heavy Cannon, which does heavy damage. Players may position their characters within each turn, and depending on the character, there will be a special effect. Special effects include Heavy Shot, Armor Break, Multi-shot and more, and this differs from character to character. At the end of each battle, players will be ranked.

Fuga: Melodies of Steel is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. Unfortunately, sales have been much lower than the developer expected. Still, creative director Yoann Gueritot has already announced plans to continue the series, as the world of Little Tail Bronx is very dear to CyberConnect2. Other games in the franchise include the classics Tail Concerto and Solatorobo.

The game was also the first of their self-published projects and part of what the company called the Trilogy of Vengeance. However, we haven’t heard anything about the other two titles previously announced, Tokyo Ogre Gate and Cecile. We’ll keep you updated when the company announces more details about those.
