Sony Music Entertainment Japan has announced that their new indie games label UNTIES will be debuting its first title Tiny Metal on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC, on December 21, 2017
After being showcased at numerous game events such as PAX West in Seattle, BitSummit in Kyoto, and Paris Games Week, Tiny Metal concludes its pre-launch tour with a final stop at this weekend’s PlayStation Experience in Anaheim, CA.
Tiny Metal is a turn-based strategy game of skill and tactics inspired by Japanese arcade war games of the past (like the Advance Wars series). Step into the aftermath of a kingdom reeling from an assassination and try to restore order through military might. Roll out tanks, take control of cities, launch aerial strikes, expand your squad, and struggle for territory in a stylistic tactical war game for fans young and old.
Play as Artemisian Lieutenant Nathan Gries as he commands his units against the villainous nation of Zipang. Players will have to carefully consider varying terrain, positioning for attacks, and strategic advancements and defenses.
Campaign mode: Follow the gripping story of Nathan and his unit as they struggle with the war and question what is — and what isn’t — worth fighting for in a 20-hour campaign full of unique characters of various factions.
Multiplayer: Soon-to-be added online mode will test you against other players in 1-on-1 matches online or via local play!
Skirmish Matches: Jump straight into the action with dozens of skirmish matches that challenge the player with fun scenarios against a variety of foes.
Units: Take control of 15 unique units, from basic Riflemen to advanced Gunships and Metals, each with their own strengths and weakness. Witness your units get stronger as they gain experience on the battlefield.
Terrain: Different terrain types offer various bonuses, rewarding players who take advantage of the forest, cities, and factories scattered around the maps. Some terrain even gives players access to new units and powerful hero units!
Music: Bop along to the beats of TINY METAL’s upbeat soundtrack composed by the Japanese musical prodigy Tomoki Miyoshi, whose past works include SOULCALIBUR V, Steins;Gate and I am Setsuna.
