Square Enix’s Transforming Car Mecha Series Gets 3DS Game In Spring

By Spencer . December 11, 2012 . 4:05pm

imageWhile it isn’t well known in the West, Square Enix has a shounen series called Gyrozetter. Cars made by manufacturers like Toyota and Nissan transform into robots in this world. Gyrozetter started off as an arcade game (which we played!) and expanded into anime series.

 

Square Enix is working on a Nintendo 3DS game called Gyrozetter: Wings of the Albatross, which will be unveiled at Jump Festa. Famitsu has early information about Gyrozetter: Wings of the Albatross and says the game is slated for spring 2013.

    We knew about it for a while, Famitsu only gave it a name and a time frame: http://www.siliconera.com/2012/05/31/square-enixs-gyrozetter-is-an-rpg-on-the-nintendo-3ds/

      Actually, we knew about the name earlier than that -> http://www.siliconera.com/2012/12/05/kingdom-hearts-hd-1-5-remix-dragon-quest-vii-playable-at-jump-festa/

      Famitsu just gave it a time frame.

      The summary was for people who had no clue what Gyrozetter was and judging by the comments from the last article people seemed pretty surprised about the whole Gyrozetter thing.

        I thought this seemed familiar…
        Well, regardless that is a lot of spring-time 3ds news in this famitsu.. O.o

    As Kakeru Todoroki would say, this is depressingly awesome. Love him in Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter.

    This seems like it could be a cool property for Square-Enix to maximize. I don’t see anything doing as well as Pokemon but I could definitely see this working in the west.

  • Reki Honoo

    This is the type of game we need to be localized, along with medabots 7.

    I realize this may sound wanky and repetitive, but darnit Square-Enix please at least try to find some way to make this cameo in Kingdom hearts. Disney is already making a Sentai robot with Mickey and his gang, why can’t you give us the sweet sweet transforming robot action we crave as well?

      Wait… Seriously!? *Looks up* Damn! That’s awesome!

      • Göran Isacson

        I KNOW, right? There’s even rumors they’re going ot make an anime out of it, and I do so hope it’s true.

  • Spirit Macardi

    I wish this could get re-branded for the west as a Megas XLR game.

  • puchinri

    Is this the same one that was initially announced? (As well as the PS3 version, right? Or no?)

    I was thinking of watching the anime, because I’ve been very interested in the series since its announcement, and I’m looking forward to seeing more of the games.

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Same 3DS game, yes but the arcade game (there was no PS3 game) is different.

      • puchinri

        Ah, okay. I couldn’t remember about the PS3 part.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001059050301 Jermaine Kanhai

    God, makes this be localized in Europe, oh please! If not, make a PS3 version of this game!

  • almostautumn

    Sounds like something Level-5 would come up with. I really love the idea though, and was a huge fan of import-cars and racing when I was young; sure this will be a success!
