Screenshot - 2013_08_08 , 22_38_10 As announced earlier, Metal Max 4: Moonlight Diva will come in a limited edition that includes an original soundtrack CD, a microfiber cloth with a world map, an original 84-page comic by Atsuji Yamamoto, and a huge DLC pack with over 3,000 yen worth of content.


Most of the downloadable content is a throwback to earlier Metal Max games, which should appeal to fans of the series.


The DLC collection will include several Wanted monsters that drop rare items when defeated: Ted Broiler (pictured), Cagliostro, Bull Frog, and Skunks from Metal Max 2, and King Warship from Metal Max 2: Reloaded.


There is also a costume for the protagonist Hinata, which makes him look like Hanta from the first two Metal Max games.

Then there are 13 more costumes from Metal Max 3 for different classes in the game, including the hunter, soldier, mechanic, nurse, wrestler, artist, and pooch.

Lastly, the DLC pack includes a desert-colored Tiger II (that’s a type of tank) and a grab bag of four random items. Metal Max 4: Moonlight Diva will be released for the Nintendo 3DS on November 7.

    I guess i’ll be the one to throw this question… WTF is… Metal Max?

    • Rytan

      Crazy ass tank jrpg. Check out Metal Saga if you have a PS2. It’s the only one that got an English release thus far. ;_;

      • Shady Shariest

        Ah, i vaguely remember seeing Metal Slug… Hmhm…Tanks?Jrpg?Ass? Dis i gotta Google :3
        And as always, sad to hear about a series not localized… Sorry for your loss?
        Edit: :( I feel bad for being downvoted :(
        Edit: 2 Metal Saga not Metal Slug! “Good work, brain!” -Jesse Cox

        • Rytan

          Ah, no no. Though they have similar names, Metal Slug and Metal Saga are two completely separate things haha.

          • Shady Shariest

            Aha! Rogue Brainfart while writing, i actually laughed a little :D, will Fix :#

  • Antixono

    Even more reason to hate the region lock.

  • Bigabu Beaze

    Localize PLZ!

    • Rytan

      I’d give my unborn children for this to get localized.

    I loved Metal Max returns. Too bad this will probably never see a localization. I’ll have to check Metal Saga on PS2, these games are great!

    • Slayven19

      No this one should probably come over here thanks to nintendo wanting no game left behind. I don’t see them leaving this in japan and even then xseed may pick it up if we demand it.

  • Slayven19

    Yes, I actually love the MM3 designs especially for the female nurse and female artist. Glad they are in the game :D.
