The impossible-to-put-into-a-single-genre game 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim launches on Switch on 12th April - that's just a few weeks away. In anticipation, Atlus has dropped a brand-new trailer for Vanillaware's mecha versus kaiju narrative adventure, which hints at some of the mysteries you'll be solving.
As the studio behind Odin Sphere, Muramasa: The Demon Blade and Dragon's Crown, Vanillaware has a reputation for creating beautiful and unique games that twist genre boundaries. Even with that in mind, 13 Sentinels is its most ambitious title to date. Our friends over at Push Square said as much in a glowing review back when the PS4 version came out in 2020.
It sounds like 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is one of those games you absolutely have to play as spoiler-free as possible, and of those of us who haven't played it yet, we're doing our best! We're even trying to not look at these screenshots in case there are any hints - even if they're impossible to ignore because of how beautiful they are.
Don't forget, pre-orders are now live from various retailers, which you can also check out over on Atlus' website. It won't cost a kaiju-sized amount, either. And even if you've played it on PS4 already, the Switch version will have some bonus content in the form of two new armaments for each of the 13 characters. So why not double-dip?
