First Look: Square Enix's Gyrozetter RPG for 3DS

Square Enix shares first details on the 3DS version of its car-themed arcade title.

 

Square Enix has announced a final arcade release date of June 21 for the car-themed Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter.

Joining the arcade date announcement, Square Enix also shared details on the 3DS version. While the 3DS version was announced alongside the arcade version's announcement, today we got first screens and confirmation that the genre will be RPG.

The 3DS title, whose name is going under the placeholder Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter RPG for now, will share the same world as the arcade version, the anime, and the manga, but will have a story that can be enjoyed on its own. It will also have wireless combat.

The 3DS version will be released in Spring 2013.

Gyrozetter was first announced in December of last year as a media mix project that will span anime, manga and multiple game releases. Some have compared the franchise to The Transformers, as the car you control can transform into robot form (in the arcade version, the cabinet also transforms somewhat). For details on the franchise, see the game's database page.
