In addition to partnering with Star Ocean developer tri-Ace, Konami struck a deal with Nude Maker. This company handled the Steel Battalion games for Capcom and created the space opera Infinite Space with Platinum Games.
Terror of the Stratus takes place in the year 2058 inside Tokyo where mankind is panicking over an intergalactic invader descending from the surface of the Moon called the Lunar Stratus. People are pushed to the depths of despair, except for a secret military force who won’t go down without a fight.
The characters in this game are part of the Imperial Special Six Squad. Seishiro is the lead character. He has silver hair and carries a sword. As a surviving member from a previous attack, Seishiro is assigned to the group. Misogi, a daughter from a noble family, is the commander. Takumi is one of Misogi’s childhood friends and from a branch family.
Details about gameplay have not been revealed, but Famitsu lists Senritsu of the Stratus as an action-adventure game. Shingo Mukaitouge, designer on Elebits and Dewy’s Adventure, is the producer. Hifumi Kono reprises his role from Infinite Space and is in charge of this game’s scenario.
Terror of the Stratus is slated for release this year in Japan.
