Siliconera has found a new rating for Damascus Gear Operation Osaka in the Taiwanese ratings board. The game is being published once again by Arc System Works, who also published the first game, Damascus Gear: Operation Tokyo last year.
Operation Osaka originally released on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4, then released on Steam as Damascus Gear: Operation Osaka HD Edition. Here’s the story according to Arc System Works from the Steam page:
[GEAR System] – This system is revealed by the Atsuga Corporation in the mid-21st century revolutionized all technologies, allowing for the perfection of piloted humanoid robots called [GEARs]. With the outbreak of the World War Four in 2050 and the loss of control of the [GEAR System] that followed, the world changed completely.
The berserk [GEARs] became know as [RAGE], and combat GEARs around the world began a total massacre of humanity.
Humanity was pushed to the brink of extinction, but a few survivors escaped underground and began analyzing the GEAR System to prepare for a counterattack. The war between humans and RAGE was exceedingly fierce, but thanks to the counter-RAGE organization [Freyja] and a certain GEAR mercenary, they steadily began recovering key locations on the surface. In 2112, over 50 years after the war began, humanity reclaimed Japan from the RAGE. 30 years later, in the [Cosmopolis] built upon Osaka, a pilot with an inherited [GEAR] and huge [debt] sets out with his Operator to become a Ranker in the Arena. It will not be a story for the history books, but simply a battle for their freedom…
It’s likely that Arc System Works will reveal the Nintendo Switch port sometime in the near future.
Damascus Gear Operation Osaka is available on PlayStation Vita, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam, and seems to be heading to Nintendo Switch as well.
