Mecha Action Title Project Nimbus Coming To PlayStation 4 In 2018

Posted on September 20, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

If you like high octane mecha action games staring anime teenagers then Project Nimbus is one title to keep an eye on. Developed by GameCrafterTeam and published by Kiss LTD it is hard not to watch footage of Project Nimbus and be instantly reminded of a brighter, more bubblegum Armored Core title. We may not have got a true Armored Core 6 from Namco and sure Project Nimbus lacks detailed customization in its current Early Access state but it seems to scratch at the same itch. 

Project Nimbus will be flying the deadly skies on PlayStation 4 in Japan later this Autumn with a worldwide release scheduled for sometime in Q1 2018.  PC players can already snag Nimbus for $15.99 CDN on Steam, but that price may go up as the game leaves Early Access on September 28th. 


Here’s a couple of the key gameplay features of Project Nimbus: CodeMirai  on PlayStation 4 as reported by Gematsu: 

Key Features

  • Missions set throughout 16 different locations, including sky city, sea fort, mountain base, giant prison, and space stages.
  • Various mecha and weapons, including smart missiles, laser blades, particle canons, floating laser shields, rail guns, and auto-attacking and defending psycho drones.
  • A grandeur story of an ace pilot set on a future earth destroyed by war, where a battle between three factions will unfold.
  • Eye-catching combat style with transforming giant mecha, daredevil pilots, and battles against armed flying boats.

If after watching the below footage your mouth starts to water just a bit – as mine did. I’ve included the minimum specs for the PC version below as well. After watching a handful of trailers and reading the news release about Project Nimbus’ incoming PlayStation 4 release I immediately plunked down the $16 for the Steam version. 

Min Specs:

    • OS: Windows Vista/7/8
    • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo
    • Memory: 2 GB RAM
    • Graphics: ATi HD5750 {Any card that support Shader Model 3.0 shall be able to run the game)
    • DirectX: Version 9.0c

One of the many titles I got the chance to see at PAX east was Assault Suit Lynos. A game about mechs, flying, destroying things, and well not much else. Now  publisher Rising Star Games have brought this love letter to mechs to PS4. I loved the 2d flat arty take on mechs that I got to play at Pax East, and it looks like from the launch trailer that that action is still there.

Based on the legendary classic 16-bit series (also known as Target Earth), the Assault Suit series is famous for fierce and fast shooting action, a tactical variety of missions, and wonderful weapon customization options. When I played it the action was fast, the enemies were strong.

Were gonna need a bigger... gun?

Were gonna need a bigger… gun?

Lee Skittrell  the marketing director for Rising Star games said of  Assault Suit: “The biggest, best and most thrilling summer blockbusters always feature an alien menace to conquer, Assault Suit Leynos stands confidently alongside the most explosive sci-fi smash hits, with its faithful HD remaster and – via a host of new gameplay features – retooling of, a much-loved classic from the halcyon days of console gaming.”

So is there a story?

yes, and here it is. As Earth reels from the impact of a fourth world war and dwindling resources, an uneasy truce between nations sees mankind reach for the stars. Colonies are settled, resources are mined, and the future starts looking a little brighter. Just as peace finally seems possible, an unknown enemy emerges from the deepest region of space to threaten the very existence of humanity. Only one thing can stop them – it’s time to deploy the Assault Suit Squadron! Gamers will blast through the opposing enemy forces with devastating weapons like machine guns, rocket launchers, and laser beams, all while discovering the hidden truth behind the invaders.

Sounds pretty generic, but hey its a game about mechs that shoot stuff, go play it trust me you will love it.
