Yes, it’s true. Atlus is fully utilizing their license as an Xbox 360 developer by localizing Zoids: Alternative. Tomy released the Zoids strategy RPG in Japan last year. We’re going to get it in North America on August 26 under the name Zoids Assault. So, in the three months the Xbox 360 will go from zero strategy RPGs to three with Operation Darkness and Spectral Force 3 preceding Zoids Assault.
Take a look at the US trailer below.
A blurb attached on the YouTube page mentions Zoids Assault has a downloadable content. A quick glance on the Japanese Xbox Live Marketplace has D-Bison, S-Liger and C-Wolf content sold for 40 Microsoft Points (50 cents) a piece.
