posted up a video announcing that MechRunner is launching on PS4 and PS Vita this Summer.
To quote: We're proud to announce that our new arcade-action game, MechRunner, will be available for download on PS4 and PS Vita this Summer. This is a game that we've been excited to work on and we're just as excited for everyone to play.
MechRunner tells the story of a rogue scientist and his niece who build a 40-foot tall mode-changing mech in order to fight back against an invading robotic army fueled by a mysterious alien power source. The mech – called the XP-41 – can change between tank and robot modes on the fly and both are capable of massive destruction.
Players will take the role of Allison, the mech's pilot, as they battle the war machines of the O.S.O. (our alternate-1940s Russian Advanced Weapons Division). There's a whole backstory around this conflict, but we aren't going to get into it right now. First and foremost, this game is all about the action.
Here are some of the features:
• Detailed, fast-paced action with a cinematic feel
• Switch between Tank and Robot modes on the fly
• Slice and Dice enemies with your swords (!)
• Extensive arsenal of weapons and customizations
