Arc System Works has revealed new information about a previously unknown release, coming to the Americas later this month.
Here’s the official description of the game from the press release;
“Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo takes this powerful truth to heart, and plops you into the pilot’s seat of a big robot so you can punch, shoot, and otherwise destroy hordes of evil machines. Arc System Works, developer of world-class fighting games such as the Guilty Gear and BlazBlue series, is bringing its brand new Mech-Action RPG to the West on PlayStation Vita.
As one of the members of FREYA, the robot-fightin’-est outfit on the planet, you’ll use your GEAR (good robot) to beat the ever-loving snot out of the RAGE (bad robots, anagram of “GEAR”). And these mechanics just wouldn’t be RPG-inspired if they didn’t involve picking parts off the metallic corpses of your defeated foes and bolting them onto your own rattling, death-dealing hulk of steel! So naturally you can do that too.“
