Starwing Paradox features world setting creation and animation handled by Sunrise, with top staff including Sunrise producer Naohiro Ogata (known for Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, etc.), character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (Neon Genesis Evangelion character designer, etc.), mecha designers Ippei Gyoubu (Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans mecha designer, etc.) and Jun’ya Ishigaki (Xenogears Gear designer, etc.) having worked on the title. The game combines high-quality animation with high-speed mecha action for a maximum of eight-versus-eight online battles. The arcade unit itself will provide a realistic robot piloting experience by moving based on your in-game movements.
