Additionally, the game’s trailer reveals that the game will be released for PlayStation 4 and Switch on November 11, while any reference to the PlayStation 5 version has disappeared.
Level-5 announced the project Megaton Musashi in 2016, initially planning its debut in the summer of 2017, but then postponing its release until, in the course of 2020, it was announced that the anime will premiere on Tokyo MX and BS Fuji on October 1st.
Megaton Musashi plot
The story takes place after 90% of humanity has been wiped out due to an alien invasion. The survivors live in a shelter where their lives are monitored and the memories of the invasion erased.
Three teenagers from the shelter are chosen to pilot three machines that come together to form the Musashi robot, made of a material called Megatronium alloy.
The series will move between the school life of the three boys and the battles aboard the robot.
Each different media in the project (game, anime or otherwise) will tell the story from the point of view of a different group of characters.
