Studio HG announced that their action rogue-like Metallic Child will launch on Nintendo Switch and PC-Steam on September 16, 2021. A PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 release are still planned to release later in 2021.
Further, there will be a physical release for Nintendo Switch, but there’s no confirmation that the game will release physically in the west. However, for those willing to import, the physical version will release with Japanese, English, Korean, and Traditional and Simplified Chinese text options. A PS4 and PS5 physical release is also planned.
Metallic Child tells the story of an android named Rona, which is discovered in the game’s beginning parts. It’s up to the player to help Rona escape her prison by defeating everything in her way. This is a meta-fiction story established through dialogue between Rona and her Metallic Child, a mech that can be upgraded and accessed during the game in dungeons.
There are four different combat styles and more than 50 weapons with their own skillsets to fit the player’s playstyle. Rona is also able to consume the cores of enemies and use them to strengthen herself. The game has similar controls to a fighting game, which has combinations of inputs using High, Low Attack, and Grappling skills.
The developer, a one-person game studio, released a new gameplay trailer to show players the updates and changes that have been made to the game’s battle system. The trailer also gives players a chance to see some of Rona’s other abilities and some of the bosses.
