Vanillaware’s Latest Game Might’ve Been Leaked, Involves Badass Mecha

vanillaware 09-10-15-1

Sega has published their lineup of games coming to this year’s Tokyo Game Show, however, we’ve learned (via Games Talk) they might have two unannounced games up their sleeve.

The first game is potentially the newest game from Vanillaware, which the developer is co-producing with Atlus (who are owned by Sega now). The website’s source code lists the game “Thirteen Mecha Soldier Defense Zone,” for both Playstation 4 and PS Vita.

Games Talk points out this game shares the same name with a 2013 New Year’s greeting card (which Vanillaware sends out every year), the artwork for said greeting card is published in this article’s header. This greeting card shares the same title with the name in the website’s source code, 十三機兵防衛圏.

While we first got a teaser for this game back in July, details are scant, if this turns out to be Vanillaware’s new game, expect at least a sizeable dose of mecha action.

Finally, a second game named “Lexus” was found on Sega’s Tokyo Game Show website. While there is really nothing to corroborate with this name, we do know the Yakuza Studio is working on something new, and it’s definitely not Yakuza.

It’s also worth mentioning that Sega quickly took down their Tokyo Game Show website, and have since reuploaded it with its entire source code scraped of all the previously found information.

This year’s Tokyo Game Show runs from September 17th to the 20th.

    The amount of art that will need to go into this for all of the articulation of the mecha alone, my god this could be IMPRESSIVE depending how the direction of the game style goes.

    Always hyper for anything vanillaware does, shame they still don’t jump on the PC too but come on, vanillaware and mecha sounds awesome.
    Every time they take on a different theme for a game they do such an awesome job at making it look so cool in their distinctive style

    Sweet! A remake of Odin Sphere and a NEW game! Awesome! I wonder how big a hissy fit Jason Scherier of Shitaku will have. You are gonna have a female main characters, but it will be downplayed because anything that comes from Japan is gross.

    TGS can’t come soon enough. Usually Vaniallaware games are even more beautiful in motion.

    Oh no… I was so excited I didn’t know…
    Well hopefully Atlus USA can cut a deal with SEGA or something. Aren’t they vaguely affiliated now?

    Sega owns atlus, but well I haven’t seen any atlus published yakuza titles reach our shore or really any sega titles published in NA by atlus to my knowledge.

    I’m still hoping we’ll have a male MC. Options are good~ somehow JRPG now caters to the ‘cute girls doing cute stuff’ crowd…
