Following Lord of Vermilion: Arena, Japanese developer Square Enix has again brought a popular arcade game to the Windows PC platform. Introducing Gunslinger Stratos: Reloaded, an upcoming MOBA where guns are the primary weapon in 4 vs 4 battles. From what I know, Gunslinger Stratos has yet to make an appearance on any console. Alpha Test begins on 6th February next year.
Here is the official storyline for Square Enix’s Gunslinger Stratos game franchise: Set in the year 2115, the country once known as Japan has split into two alternate future powers — the lawless Frontier S and the totalitarian 17th Far East Capital Administrative Zone. The two possible futures begin to fuse into one, hence each side battles to wipe the opposer in order to survive.
Square Enix also announced the anime series, Gunslinger Stratos: The Animation, set to debut next April, and the storyline is pretty much the same as the games’. Unfortunately, the official anime announcement trailer is being blocked in most countries. Here are some images from the trailer.
