The mecha-based action RPG, Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo, has already launched in North and South America on the 24th, and it’s now coming to the PS Vita in Europe a week later, on March 31, according to PEGI.
The game was originally announced by Arc System Works at the 2013 Tokyo Game Show, as a download-only title for Japan.
We’ve added some English screenshots for you to have a look at here, and you can check out the Japanese launch trailer for the game elsewhere.
Playstation offers a summary of the game’s universe:
The player is a member of “Freya”, the organization that uses GEARs to make a stand against the RAGEs. With parts retrieved from fallen RAGEs, the player will strengthen their mechs, and wage war.
The GEAR System was developed sometime in the middle of the 21st century, by the Atsuga Corporation, and allowed pilots unprecedented motor-control and maneuverability with their machines. Mankind developed the system further, to create man-operated mechs and robots, known as GEARs.
In the year 2050, the world goes to war, in what would be known as World War IV. Nonetheless, the outcome, no one could have predicted…
The GEARs, which were the primary forces in battle, became uncontrollable by their operators, and turned against mankind. GEARs that [went] berserk were named RAGEs, and left a mark on human history that can never be forgotten.
In 2097, the human population that remained was forced to live underground. And, in order to reclaim what they have lost to the RAGEs, they call upon the GEAR System once more.
