Japanese video game publisher Hamster is working on a simulation game where you run an underground facility that builds giant robots. Why? To fight giant monsters attacking the city above ground. That’s Azito 3D in a nutshell.
Technically, this is the fourth game in the series. Banpresto released three Azito titles for PsOne. Azito 3D sticks to the same conventions and has players build the secret base. Players can add labs for research, control rooms, power stations, and a hangar to hold your the robot. While it is hidden underground, the base isn’t totally protected from enemies. Spies visit and they try to sabotage your lair. So, Azito 3D is part base defense, part simsecret robot, and part kaiju battles.
The Nintendo 3DS game was originally slated for a summer release in Japan. Hamster rescheduled Azito 3D for November 3. As of now, the title has only been announced for Japan.
