Story – The world ends in 2118…
In 2118, an alien force known as the Doractors attack Earth, and seize control of the planet within days. The Earth is left in an incomplete donut-like shape, and as a hive for its new inhabitants. Humankind escapes to the Shelter, a facility boasting immense defensive capabilities, and plan their counter-offense to take back the planet.
The last hope of humanity. The power to defeat the aliens’ giant machines of war. Our hopes lie with ‘Musashi’, the Megaton-level giant robot.
In order to retake Earth, control of the giant robots were entrusted to three Megaton-level problem children…
Yamato Ichidaiji (CV: Toshiki Masuda)
A psychopath who goes to extremes. His personality changes as soon as he grasps the controls. He’s got a high aptitude for being a giant robot pilot, such as having strong decision-making, reflexes, and more.
Teru Asami (CV: Soma Saito)
A cold and calculating narcissist with top grades. He’s always deathly calm, and has an impenetrable front.
Ryuugo Hijikata (CV: Shunsuke Takeuchi)
A short-tempered, hot-blooded young man who’s like a delinquent leader. He’s quick to fight, but does have a side to him where he’s good at looking after others.
Megaton Musashi is currently in development for Nintendo Switch.
