Clouded Leopard Entertainment announced they will publish the Kadokawa Games-developed simulation RPG Relayer on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in 2021.
Relayer takes place in the year 2049 where mankind has just met intelligent life: the Relayers. Further, they have also discovered an ancient civilization known as the Starchildren, who have granted humans unique powers. Fast forward to 2051; two young women cross paths in the colony of Artemis located on the surface of the Moon. This is where the adventure begins.
Relayer will take players across the Milky Way. Humanity’s existence is threatened by what is known as Relayers, but we have a way of fighting back, the Starchildren.
During gameplay, players will lead troops to battle during turn-based missions. By controls mech units, players have 4 different types of spacecraft Starchildren at the control, Assualt, Sniper, Tank, and Scout. Each type’s attack range and weaponry vary, so players will be required to position themselves according to the unique battle situation. Players can also employ various combat strategies, such as using “hate” to draw the enemy’s attention, allowing certain allies to act as decoys, and calling upon allies to push the enemy back.
Each character can be assigned to one of the 20 unique job types and 20+ general-purpose jobs in-game. There are over 80 jobs to choose from, and each one is unique.
In addition to the main scenario, Relayer contains 80+ stages, including the side story The Asterism’s Voyage, unlocked as the story progresses. There are also extra episodes that delve into the characters’ backgrounds.
Relayer is coming to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 in 2021 and will support Japanese and English audio options.
