Gyrozetter started as a fancy transforming arcade machine that was part racing game and part card battling game. Square Enix planned this as a franchise from the start and also made an anime series that airs on TV Tokyo.
Super Speed Transformation Gyrozetter takes place in a world where teenagers drive cars that transform into robots. The kids in the series come from New Yokohama, which is the biggest city in Japan. Kakeru is the protagonist and he’s your typical happy go lucky hero. Well, when he isn’t rushing to Arcadia Academy as seen in the first episode of the anime series.
Square Enix released this clip to promote Gyrozetter: Wings of the Albatross, a Nintendo 3DS RPG based on the series. Like the arcade game it’s part driving and part robot car battles.
