Atlus continues to plow along as the war machine they are with the announcement of the upcoming tactical RPG Zoids Assault for the Xbox 360. This will be joining the ranks of Operation Darkness and Spectral Force 3 to help Atlus in their attempt to break a world record for the most games released in a year.
Zoids Assault begins with the world's two main superpowers, the Guylos Empire and the Republic of Helic, battling and dragging the rest of the world into the conflict, such as the nations of Maroll and Jamil. These two nations now have a mutual mistrust and paranoia of each other. Players will manage a team of powerful war machines, which they can upgrade and customize along the way. Melee weapons, rockets, rifles, and machine guns are just a few of the options for customization. Mastering the use of the Electromagnetic Pulse System will be a key tactic to survival within Zoids Assault. Zoids has been rated "T" for Teen and has been scheduled for release on August 26.
Atlus's official site is also available. RPGamer will try to dig up more details as the Run to the Sun team will be visiting with Atlus tomorrow.
