Majestic Prince Gets A Fast-Paced On-Rails Shooter

By Eugene . March 1, 2014 . 2:00pm

 

What we have here is a new smartphone game for the new series Majestic Prince. The game, dubbed Majestic Prince Shooting Hero is an on-rails shooter have to swipe their flying mecha around the screen to dodge obstacles and bullets while targeting and shooting down enemies, but you’re given full run of the screen to do so rather than a mere flat plain. It feels a little like Sin & Punishment 2.

 

 

Players will be able to fly around in their mechs called Ash, picking off enemies, and even face up against big bads such as event raid bosses (one of the staples for keeping players interested in smart phone titles). You can customize your mechs with Enhance Chips that will, surprise surprise, enhance your mech.

 

The story revolves around humanity’s expansion into space and then encounters with the alien race, the Wulgaru. Outgunned and outmatched, genetically engineered and altered humans are sent to the front lines to do battle.

 

Despite this being from Bandai Namco and having a similar art style and maybe even a touch of really familiar undertones to titles such as Gundam Seed, they aren’t related.

 

Majestic Prince Shooting Hero is available on iOS and Android now.

    Looks pretty dope, I would give a spin if it was avaliable on something I had… >_> Really need to get a smartphone and stop bitching on occasion.

  • Kaitou21

    I absolutely hated majestic prince but this game looks decent, I might give it a try.

    • Namuro

      How come?

      • Emd23

        Who knows? Majestic Prince was great.

        • landlock

          Probs because of the annoying main characters I would say. They were really bad, it’s not often I stop watching a mecha series but this was one.

      • Kaitou21

        I could go on and on about it, but to keep it short I honestly couldn’t find one good thing about the anime, i love mecha anything with a passion but this show was worse than Eureka 7 AO.

    So…. Omega Boost?

      Astralwyrm pls.
      don’t remember me of that masterpiece…it hurts ):

  • porkiewpyne

    If I remember correctly, their mecha is/should be called AHSMB, rather than Ash.

  • Namuro

    I thought the design of the robot looks too good for an original smartphone game, LOL. Never heard of the manga/anime before.

    • Crimson_Cloud

      Try the anime. It has sick fast-action battle scenes.

    • Firekitty

      I’ll second that you should check out the anime, and add that it also has incredibly likable characters, and a lot of well-placed humor (meaning it’s a funny series, but they know when to can it so it doesn’t ruin the tone of the plot).

      • Namuro

        A humorous anime with fast-paced action scenes, eh…?

        That’s pretty much a winning combination for me! I”ll definitely check it out!

      • Crimson_Cloud

        Agreed, I also loved the cast which a lot of people unfortunately found too generic and annoying.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Man I fell out of my chair when I saw the title only to see it’s on the smarthphone? Screw this. Wanted a game like Macross 30. :/

    But yeah, I loved Majestic Prince. Characters sited well with me, even though a majority of people hated hem. Hoping for a second season. ˇˇ

    I love on rail shooters :D

    Too bad the likelihood of this getting translated is….
