Following a tease last month, Arc System Works and APlus Games have announced Damascus Gear: Saikyo Exodus for PS Vita. The latest entry in the robot customization hack-and-slash series will launch via the PlayStation Store in Japan on March 22 for 2,000 yen.
The story of Damascus Gear: Saikyo Exodus is completely new, following a new protagonist that pilots a robot called a “Gear” in order to repay his debt of 100 million Eyn within the span of a month. You can freely customize your Gear for battle from eight parts with an abundance of variations. You can steal powerful parts from enemies during missions to strengthen your own robot. Parts have special effects known as “characteristics,” and by combining parts and characteristics, you can build a Gear suited to your strategy. More than 45 types of robots and 2,400 types of parts that didn’t appear in Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo have been added. Once you’ve established your Gear, you’ll fight rival Gears to win large amounts of money and return your debt, rank up, and take on higher difficulty missions to earn more valuable parts. Additionally, there are more elements to develop the player character.
