Fuga: Melody of Steel

CyberConnect has updated the official website for Fuga: Melody of Steel with more details (and a look at some gameplay). We have information concerning the game’s story, characters, and battle system.

Here’s the full rundown:


Chapter 1

Long ago, there was the peaceful country of Gasco, a territory that did not meddle in the affairs of other countries. However, without warning, the Berman Empire launched an assault against Gasco, capturing and abducting every adult in sight from the village of Petit Mona, where Malt and his friends reside. He and the remaining children hear a mysterious voice coming from a radio, which leads them straight to the giant tank Taranis. The children hop aboard the Taranis and head out to face off against the Berman army to save their families!

Chapter 2

The children have been caught in the tide of war and have been forced to experience battle first-hand. This harsh reality has been thrusted before them, and the weight of their situation begins to set in. There to support and encourage the children though is the voice from the radio. The voice cheers them on with direction and guidance, and they are able to find the resolve to press forward in order to save their families. It is at this very moment that a young girl shrouded in light appears before the children…

The Ancient Weapon, the Giant Tank Taranis!

A giant tank built with ultra ancient technology! This proves to be a bolstering ally to the children who are attempting to save their families after their village was burned to the ground. But why does it move on its own? It holds countless mysteries…

Game System

Strategy is the key!

Players will need to keep track of turn order! The Taranis possesses 3 types of weapons, and attacking enemies with a weapon type that they are weak against will delay their turn. By continually delaying enemy turns, players can effectively create 1-sided battles for themselves!

Use your characters wisely!

By editing the formation, players can swap character arrangements and attack turns. Thinking and planning ahead are the fundamentals of strategy!

Gain the upper hand by using a variety of skills!

The children have an abundance of skills at their disposal, including group and ailment-afflicting attacks!

There’s a Workshop, Messroom, Scrap Fishing, and… Farming!? Prepare for Battle with Fuga’s Intermission Phase!

The children live their lives onboard the Taranis. During the Intermission phase of the game, players take control of one of the children and can move around the Tanaris, conversing and raising that character’s affinity with other members of the crew. Players can also utilize the Taranis’ various facilities to upgrade the tank or augment the stats of allies to prepare for future battles! Talking to children or using facilities will consume Action Points (AP).

Workshop & Scrap Fishing

Messroom & Farming

The Ultimate Weapon: Soul Cannon

The Soul Cannon is activated when the children find themselves in a crisis during battle. It can take out any adversary in a single, powerful blow, but at what cost…? Whether you use this double-edged sword or not is up to you…

Strategize wisely and aim for the true ending!

If you choose to not use the Soul Cannon and get wiped out, a retry menu will appear. Face your enemies again and aim for victory! Can you save everyone without relying on the fearsome power of the Soul Cannon? The decision is in your hands…
