Microids and Endroad have revealed that Grendizer is coming to Nintendo Switch, an action game based on the famous anime adapted from Go Nagai’s manga UFO Robot Grendizer.
You will have the chance to play as Duke Fleet and his great robot, diving headfirst into “an iconic pop culture universe filled with bravery, treason and sensational battles.” In the Japanese anime, viewers watched as Grendizer’s weaponry was used to defeat King Vega’s forces, which launched attacks on Earth from a secret base hidden on the dark side of the moon.
“We are delighted to finally share the first screens from Grendizer,” enthuses Microids CEO Stéphane Longeard. “Endroad is a very talented studio and we are confident in their expertise to transcribe the universe created by Go Nagai in a great video game. We cannot wait to share more about the title’s gameplay!”
Endroad game director and co-founder Colomban Cicéron adds: “We have been working fervently on the Grendizer project, aiming at the highest quality to please the fans and the newcomers alike that didn’t get the chance to be introduced to Duke Fleed (Daisuke Umon in Japan) and his friends. This is such an abounding universe that deserves the most focused attention to detail.
“We are all fans of this IP we grew up with and we’re fully dedicated in providing players the game they’ve been dreaming about for decades. We are exceedingly grateful to be able to work on this IP and will do our very best to deliver an exceptional gaming experience.”
Grendizer will release at retail and digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2023.
