About The Game
Originally released for the Super Famicom/SNES in 1992, Assault Suits Valken takes place in a future where two governments are at war over both Earth’s dwindling natural resources and the territorial rights to its moon.

“While Assault Suits Valken was given a Western release back in the 90s as Cybernator, this version was heavily edited and censored, meaning English-speaking gamers have never been able to appreciate the game fully — until now,” said Joseph Chou, CEO. “Assault Suits Valken Declassified aims to correct that oversight by not only offering a faithful and uncompromised localization of the original game, but also new artwork from character designer Satoshi Urushihara and an exclusive interview with Satoshi Nakai, the previously unknown designer of game’s titular mecha.”
