Square Enix’s Transforming Car RPG Has Plenty Of Towns



Gyrozetter: Wings of the Albatross has players around with their robot that transforms into a car, so it wouldn’t be boring if there wasn’t anywhere to go. Square Enix made five different towns for the Nintendo 3DS game and all of them are in different parts of Japan.


Yokohama New City Center is where Yuki Kudo, one of the main characters, is from. In 2053, it’s the most populous city in Japan with cutting edge technology. Arcadia’s headquarters is located here too. Fukuoka City turned into a sweltering lava world thanks to an active volcano. The town always has energy issues since people run their air conditioners to stay cool. Fukuoka’s "hot spots" are its boiling hot springs and popular local dish, Hakata Ramen.


Hiroshima City has a more pleasant climate that’s cool in the summer and warm in the winter since it borders the ocean. The city is actually underwater and thrives since they utilize tidal energy. Sendai City has a giant windmill that powers the town. It’s a peaceful area blessed with natural resources. Rumor has it a hermit lives in Sendai City’s mountains. Asahikawa City in Hokkaido underwent some changes too. After several years of abnormal weather snow falls all year and people live inside a giant dome to stay warm.

Changing gears gives you access to different attacks, which you can select on the touch screen. The game also has a burst gauge and when it’s full you can do a final burst, your Gyrozetter’s ultimate move.


The game has seven elemental attributes – fire, ice, wind, thunder, light, dark, and nothing. There are also five types of physical attacks – strike, slash, sting, burst, and beam. Gyrozetter: Wings of the Albatross comes out on June 13.
