Wolfstride Is a Super Stylish Tactical Mech RPG Coming Next Year

Just get in the mech.

Anime and giant robots have a long history together, and Wolfstride looks to bring both of those elements to the tactical RPG space. From developer Ota Imon, Wolfstride will turn mechs into scrap metal sometime on Steam in 2021.

Announced today during the Guerrilla Collective stream, Wolfstride is a turn-based RPG with management elements and, importantly, mechs. Based out of São Paulo, Ota Imon seems to be taking some inspiration from throughout mech anime history, including some fairly recognizable shades on one character.

Beyond just the anime inspiration, Wolfstride has a black-and-white look across the board that really makes the action pop. But Wolfstride isn't just about making mechs fight; it's got some story, and some things to do outside the cockpit of your giant robot and tournament matches.

The description on the game's Steam page says players will follow a trio of characters: an exiled ex-Yakuza, a rookie pilot, and a grizzled mechanic who all team up to fight in the Ultimate Mech Tournament. Between turn-based combat matches and managing the mech's fighting capabilities. Building relationships and getting job offers also seems crucial to keeping cash flowing in for more mech upgrades.

While Wolfstride is still a ways off from launch, the style of it already looks pretty rad. This seems like one to keep an eye for mech anime aficionados. This announcement is part of this weekend's ongoing Guerrilla Collective stream, which has included announcements across various shows and streams, including a release date for time-warping RPG Cris Tales and the neo-Western road trip Dustborn.
