Metal Revolution: Developers reveal story plot and list of heroes

An immersive story plot with some kickass characters to dive into the world of Metal Revolution

The developer of Metal Revolution, NExT Studios with YOOZOO Games’ publishing arm Gtarcade reveals more insights about the story settings and hero spotlights of Metal Revolution. Set to release later this year, Meta revolution includes details on the information on the currently ongoing final beta test and the game’s development.

Metal Revolution is a cyberpunk-themed mecha fighting and action mobile game that aims to make the traditionally hardcore genre interactive and exciting for players of all abilities. Each action button will redirect to multiple actions in-game and perform different moves when pressing up or down on the joystick, and new players will be able to pull off multi combos right from the beginning. The game also offers a competitive level structure that players can climb for unique in-game rewards and each of the heroes will offer a unique, distinctive role in the story of Metal Revolution.

Mechanically, we kept the basics of fighting games such as jump, block or basic combos in the game, but at the same time made some modifications to better fit a mobile game. These modifications mainly included simplifying the complexity of chaining combos, removing high and low attacks and instead focusing on cross-over strategies. We’ve also added an energy bar mechanic that adds a whole new dimension to fighting, and can be recovered through certain actions or natural recovery.

Metal Revolution : Story plot and Hero Spotlights

Story setting – Desolate World, Born Anew

Metal Revolution is set in a distant cyberpunk future full of metal, neon and violence. After 500 years of complete environmental deterioration that ultimately enveloped the entire planet in radiation, humanity discovered a new substance that later became known as “M metal”. This substance, stronger than steel and lighter than weight, was discovered to be compatible with biological muscle tissue, offering immunity against the ever-present radiation.

Humanity ultimately decided to fuse their bodies with M metal, gaining supernatural powers and altering their appearances. However, the M metal also had a negative effect on a person’s body and mind – especially young people became more violent, and thus needed an outlet for their rage. That is when the Metal Showdown was born – a grand tournament founded by the world’s most powerful consortium only known as “S consortium”, Metal Showdown pits fighters against each other to test their mettle and crown a fighting champion every single year.
