Following leaks from this week’s issue, Famitsu and Rocket Company have officially announced Medarot: Girls Mission. The magazine’s website is currently hosting an article preview alongside our first look at the game itself:
The previews reiterate that it’s a dramatic action game where over 20 girls will compete to win the Artemis Cup.
Girls Mission will launch in the traditional Kabuto Ver. and Kuwagata Ver. format. Unlike prior entries, however, is that there will be a noticeable difference between releases. Alongside a different Medarot, you will play as a different character in a different story. Those buying the Kabuto Ver. will be treated to a setting in Joyou Agricultural High School, while Kuwagata players will see a tale told in Teikou High School.
Combat is also briefly touched upon. Abilities are mapped out to the A, B, X and Y buttons on the 3DS, and victory is once again achieved by incapacitating your opponents. 2-on-2 battles will see you team up with one of the other girls. While you can’t control your ally’s Medarot, battling together will grow the bond between both Medarot and Medarotters.
Medarot: Girls Mission is set for release on March 10, 2016 in Japan for 5800 yen (+tax) on Nintendo 3DS. Development is currently at 90% completion. The game is rated CERO C (ages 15+), a first for the franchise.
