Vanillaware’s 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is now available on the Nintendo Switch worldwide. The adventure/tactical strategy title features 13 playable characters, each with their own unique storylines and relationships. However, they all have one thing in common – fighting to protect their city from the Kaiju.
This is done by using the Sentinels, massive mechs with unique abilities depending on the pilot. Combat is a version of real-time-with-pause as you move units around, utilizing different abilities and ultimately defending the Aegis from the incoming hordes. When not fighting, you’ll be running around different areas (and time periods) to find out why the Kaiju are attacking. That is, when you’re not dealing with Men in Black, a talking cat, androids and other terrors.
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is already available for PS4 and has garnered exceptional critical acclaim. It crossed 400,000 in worldwide shipments and digital sales as of March 2021 (with 200,000 units sold in Japan as of September 2021).
