Earlier this week at Tokyo Game Show, Square Enix and Metal Gear artist Yoji Shinkawa unveiled a new project called Left Alive. Tonight, after a brief livestream event in Tokyo, we have the full trailer for the upcoming game.
Left Alive was originally described as a survival action game that takes place in the same universe as the Front Mission series.
The trailer begins with a moody look at the fictional country of Novo Slava in 2127. Based on the trailer, it looks like there's going to be plenty of existential questions about the nature of war, only with giant robots.
Yoji Shinkawa is best known as the artist for Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear series, with his distinct character illustrations visible across the history of the franchise. Additionally, Left Alive is produced by Front Mission's Shinji Hashimoto and directed by Armored Core's Toshifumi Nabeshima. A pretty solid line-up considering the project features military action and mechs, areas of expertise shared by this core group.
Left Alive is coming out for PC and PlayStation 4 sometime in 2018.
