Takara Tomy has announced Zoids Wild, the first new Zoids series in 12 years.
Zoids Wild is a multimedia project that will start with a toy line and anime this summer in Japan, and develop into a comic, smartphone app, video game for Switch, and more.
The toy line is being made with the concept of assembling a life-form, where you build a skeleton frame, and attach armor and weapons to it. Each toy will have an instinct-release mechanic called “Wild Blast,” by which it changes into attack form. The first two toys are “Wild Liger” and “Gilraptor,” and are due out in Japan in June for 3,000 yen each.
The anime will air on MBS TV in Japan, as well as other networks.
Details about the Switch video game project were not announced.
Watch the announcement trailer for the Zoids Wild project below. (Unfortunately, the trailer is region-blocked outside of Japan.)
Thanks, Dengeki Online.
