Metal Max Xeno Reborn coming West for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC next year

PQube has announced that Metal Max Xeno Reborn will launch for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam) in North America and Europe next year.

This title is a rework of 2018's Metal Max Xeno, which uses a new game engine, removes random encounters, adds the support dog Pochi, and includes other numerous tweaks. The remaster released in Japan in September 2020.

An announcement trailer, description, and screenshot set can be found below via PQube. The official website is here.

For further reading, two other Metal Max series games were also detailed in today's 30th-anniversary live stream:

  • Metal Max Wild West - a sequel to Metal Max Xeno - set to release for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan.
  • Metal Saga: Hangyaku no Rouka - which seems to be more in line with the Metal Saga style of post-apocalyptic games - set to release for Nintendo Switch and other platforms in Japan.

Humanity is on the brink of extinction and the last remaining survivors look to push back against the machines.  Half a century ago of war against the mother computer NOA has reduced even Asia's largest metropolis, TOKIO, to rubble. Explore this desolate wasteland and battle your way through onslaughts of enemies. Salvage, modify and hit back using tanks, weaponry and faithful battle dog, Pochi, to reclaim a future for the human race!

Never-Ending Wasteland

Set in a devastated world called Dystokio, Metal Max Xeno: Reborn is a nonlinear, open world, JRPG with real-time battle and vehicle combat elements. Take control of Talis and search for other survivors who wish to fight back against the machines. There are no limits to where you can go, no matter your progression in the game. 

Unite to Survive

The fate of the universe is in your hands! Unite the remaining survivors across the land, recruiting new members to your party and bringing different skills to the fight! Hunt down your enemies with the help of up to 3 teammates, plus your beloved battle dog, Pochi. Pochi can also level up, learn new skills and joins the firefight as your fourth party member. Help him earn skill points by feeding him at the base. And yes, you can also pet him.

Gear Up for Victory

Upgrade your skill-tree and develop abilities of your choice from five categories, including:

  • Drive
  • Repair
  • Medical
  • Militia
  • Survive

Target your enemies using your tanks and weapons to unleash your powers to inflict massive damage. With a full party, combine your skills to balance your strengths and weaknesses and ambush the monster machines from all sides.

Salvage and Build

Scavenge tanks & parts from across the wasteland. Customize with fresh paint and the strongest firepower you can find with the brand new vehicle modification system. Tanks can range in design and scope. Freely customize your tanks, swap out engines, upgrade the weaponry and bump them with special equipment. Enjoy endless possibilities with combinations. Strike your enemies from inside your tank, or disembark and explore dangerous dungeons on foot with your allies.
