It’s not too often that we ever really focus on some screenshots or first look visuals, but what Microids are showing off with Grendizer is very interesting – and besides, there’s a trailer to go with it to sweeten the deal.

Due to release on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch and PC at some point in 2023 – yes, 2023 – Microids is delighted to show for the very first time the artistic direction of Grendizer, revealed through two artwork pieces and a tantalizing teaser.

Stéphane Longeard, CEO of Microids, is very enthusiastic about the development progress: “we are delighted to finally share the firsts screens from Grendizer. Endroad is a very talented studio and we are confident in their expertise to transcribe the universe created by Go Nagai in a great video game. We cannot wait to share more about the title’s gameplay!”

Grendizer is being developed by the French development studio Endroad, made up of experienced developers formerly at Ubisoft or Amplitude Studios, whilst the renowned art & creative director Laurent Cluzel will lend a hand in the production of the game.

“We have been working fervently on the Grendizer project, aiming at the highest quality to please the fans and the newcomers alike that didn’t get the chance to be introduced to Duke Fleed (Daisuke Umon in Japan) and his friends. This is such an abounding universe that deserves the most focused attention to detail. We are all fans of this IP we grew up with and we’re fully dedicated in providing players the game they’ve been dreaming about for decades. We are exceedingly grateful to be able to work on this IP and will do our very best to deliver an exceptional gaming experience” declares Colomban Cicéron, Game Director and co-funder of Endroad.

But what is Grendizer? Well, based on the famous anime adapted from Go Nagai’s manga UFO Robo Grendizer, this new action game will grant the nostalgic gamers the chance to play as Duke Fleet and his great robot and enjoy epic adventures. It’s a unique opportunity to dive head first into an iconic pop culture universe filled with bravery, treason and sensational battles. With the cult animated series being one of the first successful exports of Japanese animation at the end of the ’70s, there’s sure to be much love for what Microids and Endroad are able to deliver.

The question is, are you ready for a legendary comeback? Give the images a look and the trailer a watch. Then hold tight for Grendizer to be released in 2023 on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch and PC.
