Studio HG released the opening for their action rogue-like Metallic Child coming to Nintendo Switch and PC-Steam on September 16, 2021. A PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 release are still planned to release later in 2021.
The opening is produced by Studio TRIGGER and is as fun as it is beautiful. Each character gets a bit of the spotlight, but the main character, Rona, gets most of the screen time.
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.
