The story takes place in the disparaged town Mado where a the hero (either male or female, you pick!) visits with his or her foster parents. There you meet the Mad Scientist Dr. Mince who is using electricity to revive corpses. The town has a shop and in the outskirts a makeshift cemetery to remember those who died in battle.
When it’s time to fight, and Metal Max 2 Reloaded has battles, you do it from the comfort of your car. Vehicles include Leopard tanks, buggys, and motorcycles which you can customize with machine guns. Metal Max 2 Reloaded has tough wanted monsters to hunt and Kadokawa Games added new bounties to the Nintendo DS version.
Metal Max 2 Reloaded is slated for release this winter in Japan. A limited edition with a two-disc soundtrack, four metal wanted plates, and a comic drawn by professor Yoshitsugu Yamamoto will e available for 8,190 yen ($101).
