Famitsu has always been a great publication to learn about the latest games from Japan. In fact, the magazine often reveals games before any other outlet. All readers should once again keep their eyes peeled on next week’s issue, as the magazine will share the first information on a popular “robot action game.” There will be a 5 page preview as well as a developer interview to accompany the announcement. As is usually the case with these types of secrets, there is no confirmation yet as to which platform(s) the game is being created for. However, in about a week’s time, we’ll find out.
