While we won’t hear about the Nintendo 3DS game until next year, Square Enix showed off a new trailer for the arcade version of their new franchise, Gyrozetter, at the Jump Festa trade show in Japan this past weekend. Take a look at this below:

 

 

Gyrozetter is a game with cars that can transform into robots. In a neat twist, the actual arcade cabinet itself transforms, too. The arcade game is slated for release in Japan in summer 2012. A manga is currently being serialized in Saikyo Jump magazine, there are plans for merchandise, and A-1 Pictures are working on an anime version as well.

 

Oh, and it looks like Square might have plans to bring the series overseas.
