Mech Shooter Gigantic Army Is The Next Doujin Title From Nyu Media

By Ishaan . January 22, 2014 . 2:25pm

Doujin game publisher Nyu Media are releasing another Japanese indie title for PC soon—Gigantic Army, a side-scrolling mech shooter that pays homage to games like Cybernator and Front Mission: Gun Hazard.



The game will be available on February 5th for PC, and involves a 21st century war against a race of aliens called the Ramulons, who are attempting to stop humanity’s advance into space. Gigantic Army is developed by Astro Port, the developer behind Satazius.


The game will feature six stages, twelve mid and end-level bosses, and four difficulty modes. You’ll also be able to customize your weapon loadout to suit your style of playing, and Nyu Media say the western release of the game has been rebalanced.


Gigantic Army will be available on PC for $5.99 on Feb. 5th. A Linux version is also in development for release on Steam.

    It’s always good to see Indie developers making a game, even if it doesn’t meet the standards of modern graphics (it’s all about the fun guys!) Basically, the more games there are, the better. >:D

  • Good to see another Side scrolling mech shooter like Leynoss or Valken, if things went well just like Gunhound we can expect some portable port for this game as well.

    I loved Cybernator / Valken (pity the character portraits were removed from the SNES version whilst the PS2 version had no hold direction). Still a great game.
