Every now and then something a little bit different pops up on the Xbox Store, enticing Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S players in by the madness it promises. Today, that different is Fuga: Melodies of Steel.
Coming from CyberConnect2, Fuga: Melodies of Steel is the company’s first ever self published title, yet having previously worked on the likes of the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm and Dragon Ball Z series’ – notably, Kakarot – it seems they know a thing or two about videogames.
Fuga: Melodies of Steel hits Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S in typical RPG fashion, but from there it all goes a bit south. You see, this RPG sees you placing children in the firing line as they utilise a variety of tactics, skills and abilities – and giant tanks – to head off the enemy and take the fight to all.
It’s these kids who will live inside the tank, and throughout Fuga: Melodies of Steel you’ll need to keep an eye on their emotional states and affinities with each other. Managing them is most definitely a bit key to the success you’ll look to find.
With various opportunities to take, decisions to enjoy and paths to consider, if you’re an RPG fan then there’s a pretty decent chance that Fuga: Melodies of Steel will be able to provide what you are looking for.
