This role-playing game centres on three former partners-in-crime who reach a turning point in their lives. After inheriting a junkyard mecha called Cowboy, they reunite to enter the planet’s most elite mecha competition: the Ultimate Golden God Tournament.
The three members of the team – the dog-mechanic Duque, mecha pilot Knife Leopard and jack-of-all-trades Dominic Shade – each lend their unique experience, as they work together to outwit the best mecha opponents from across the planet.
The core crew believe that they have everything covered, although their simple quest to make money will unfold “into a deep, slow-burning exploration of their complex lives, the dark choices of their past, and their inevitable fate.”
The publisher has broken down the game’s key features as below:
- The Hangar: The hangar is Duque’s domain. Repairing damage between battles is just the beginning. Swap out parts, install upgrades, and add new weapons to improve Cowboy and perfect the custom loadout designed to beat your next opponent.
- Rain City: Take the role of exiled former Yakuza, Dominic Shade, to explore every quirky corner of Rain City. A half dozen establishments introduce a kaleidoscope of characters, each offering support, a job, or a biting insult to your journey.
- The Arena: Enter the arena to fight it out in giant robots one on one. The turn-based battle system rewards preparation and strategy. Move carefully to get in the best position to attack and keep the enemy off-balance. Target attacks to wear down your opponent or go on the defensive when the fighting gets too hot.
Wolfstride will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America on 10th May and across Japan on 12th May 2022.
