The Metal Max series didn’t have much success outside of Japan. In fact, only two games have seen the light of day in the West so far – metal sagaand Metal Max Xeno (which is getting an improved re-release on Switch) – and whenever they’ve made it here, they’ve rarely caught the attention of critics.
So how do you win back fans and critics? Dogs.
Metal Dogs launches April 8th in Japan on Switch and Kadokawa Games has released a brand new trailer showing all the wild shooting of the three lead dogs – Shiba Inu Pochi, Bell the Doberman and the bulldog named Bonanza. We wanted to remind you of the names because they are absolutely perfect.
Each pup receives a plethora of costumes from army outfits, cardboard cars, hippos and angel wings. So you can make sure your dogs look great as you immerse yourself in this roguelike shooter. So eat your heart out, Returnal.
We don’t know if we’ll be releasing Metal Dogs here in the west, so don’t get your hopes up, but we’d love to see the difference dogs make to the Metal Max series.
Will you import metal dogs? Let us know in the comments.
