Aksys Games and Acquire have announced that they’re bringing action/strategy title Metropolis Defenders to North America as Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault early next year.

The game puts you in command of the last hope for humanity, giving you some fantastic technology and pitting you against aliens in an all-out “action extravaganza.” Dig in, develop a plan, build up your defenses, and take on hordes of giant enemies which attack your fortified city in an attempt to wipe out the last of us.

Here are the key features from the press release;

  • Defense is the Strongest Offense; Engage in dynamic city defense via revolutionary gameplay mechanics in which you rotate your entire city to aim weapons and take out monsters! Leave no quadrant untouched as you spin 360 degrees in search of would-be destroyers!
  • Immersive Commander Experience; Command and level up a huge variety of units and gargantuan weapons as you hone your tactical skills. Immersive gameplay puts you in the center of intense combat. Seize the initiative from your enemies and decimate their ranks as a robust cast of characters lend their support to the cause!
  • Massive Content Keeps You in the Fight!; An intense 20+ hour campaign ensures you’ll have your hands full as you battle through 23 epic missions! Fend off 15 species of relentless enemies that will not stop until your city is reduced to rubble!

Aegis of Earth: Protonovus Assault is due out in North America sometime during March of next year in both digital and physical forms. As for Europe… we’ll keep our eyes open, and let you know.
