Anyone Want To Play Square Enix’s Transforming Car Game? In HD?

By Spencer . August 3, 2012 . 2:06am

gyrozeOne of Square Enix’s upcoming franchises is a racing game with transforming cars called Gyrozetter. On top of slick transforming arcade cabinets, Square Enix has big plans for Gyrozetter with a manga, anime series, and toys in the works.


There’s a Gyrozetter game in development for the Nintendo 3DS too. The 3DS game, producer Ryutaro Ichimura explained in an interview with Game Business, won’t be a port of the arcade game, it’s actually a role play game. Gyrozetter for Nintendo 3DS is slated for release this spring.


Game Business followed up and asked if Square Enix they’re working on a HD version of Gyrozetter? Ichimura says he doesn’t want to forget the adult fans and it might be necessary to make Gyrozetter HD if they want to bring the series overseas. Right now, Gyrozetter has only been announced for Japan.

    “it might be necessary to make Gyrozetter HD if they want to bring the series overseas”
    In other words: we’ll never get the 3DS version.

    Why does the statement there seems to says people outside of Japan only care for HD game???

    I own more portable game this generation than my HD consoles game here.T_T

  • Vampiric

    please localize the 3ds rpg, even though square isnt localizing much of anything these days

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      Yeah. I mean localizing both of them should be a better move there considering 3ds currently is the best selling machine and with the upcoming xl, it would be stupid not to tap on them.

      And by having the hd too, it will also increase both fans on hd and portable front there.^_^

    oh they could put it on the Wii U if they wanted to in the future :D and or PS3 also or something

  • Göran Isacson

    … On the one han I have idea if this game is actually good or if I SHOULD want it.

    But on the other hand- cars that transform into robots. That’s a fatal weakness of MANY kids of my generation, and I am no exception. Should I want, or should I not…

    I’d totally play a SQEX Transformers RPG in HD.  Are you kidding?  Sounds awesome!

    • Solomon_Kano

      The HD one isn’t the RPG though, sadly. The 3DS one, which we have a lower chance of seeing, is.

  • Spirit Macardi

    People are saying this looks like Transformers, but I’m getting a far stronger Megas XLR vibe.

    Either way though, I’d love to try it out.

    • Solomon_Kano

      Darn people. Always forgetting about Megas :/

      But seriously, even the way the robots move is waaay reminiscent of Megas.

      • Syn

        and super robot series combined, the sheer absurdly awesome moves that are shown in the trailer are simply and literally out of this world, its super robot, Megas XLR, and transformers combined into one epic new series, am Loving this.

  • Xekyo

    Come to the ps3.  I’ve been waiting to have my dud of a Del Slo transform into a beast.  lol  This would be the closest I can get to that dream with these money issues. 

  • Guest

    These games look really cool. I would buy them. It’s nice to have a series of transforming robots that isn’t transformers.

  • Solomon_Kano


    I wish we could get both overseas, but I’ll settle for having the arcade game on my PS3.

  • Rolling Guy

    I would have bought one. If it weren’t for the region lock. My USA 3DS is DEAD.
