NIS America has announced that they will be localizing Metal Max Xeno, set to release on PlayStation 4 later this fall in North America and Europe. The game will feature Japanese voiceovers only.
Kadokawa had previously announced plans for localization, and NIS America was a likely candidate as they have worked on several other Kadokawa titles in the past. Metal Max Xeno releases in Japan next week, and while the Japanese release is also headed the PlayStation Vita, that version will not be localized.
In usual NISA fashion, a Limited Edition is available on the niche publisher's website for $59.99, which includes: METAL MAX Xeno for PS4, an Iron Base Pin, an Original Soundtrack disc, Official Art Book, and Collector's Box.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Metal Max franchise, and METAL MAX Xeno goes "back to the basics" in its tank/human hybrid combat and storyline.
