Metal Max was first released in 1991, and due to trademark issues, the games in the franchise have been released under both the Metal Max and Metal Saga banners.

As Famitsu reports, the upcoming game’s theme is “Mankind has become a threat for humanity.” You can see the teaser trailer below: 

Here are some screenshots from a recent live stream:

Currently, Metal Saga: Hangyaku no Rouka does not yet have a release date. A spec slide for the game lists “Japanese, etc.” for the game, so expect a localized release. Plus, hardware is listened as “Nintendo Switch, etc.” with the PC also being mentioned during the presentation as a desired platform. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

Always loved this series. The PS2 game has an ending where you just “don’t go on the adventure” and you stay at home with mom running the repair shop and die old peacefully with a family.
