If you are a fan of graphic novels and science fiction, we have the video game for you. 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is an adventure game that takes place in a world where humans have to face kaijus, gigantic monsters, using so-called “mecha” weapons. This is more or less the synopsis of the films Pacific Rimbrought up to date in a 2D game with incredible graphics and a complex story.
Having already had great success on PlayStation consoles in September 2020, and in Japan before that, the title is getting a long-awaited release on Nintendo Switch. Note that you can already buy it via Nintendo eShop for €59.99. Check out its launch trailer below.
If the game is particularly appreciated, it is above all for its very engaging narration and its real-time strategic combat system, which puts you in the heart of a war that only you can win. As the name suggests, there are 13 different stories for the 13 sentries guarding the city.
At any time during your adventure, you can juggle between the different characters, giving 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim great replayability and many gameplay possibilities. However, you won’t be able to complete each story from start to finish without interruption, as some parts are unlockable after you play as other characters.
There is also a battle mode that allows you to organize team fights. In this mode, you must choose the characters you want with you and assign them roles for the attack phases.
Kaijus are out
If you don’t know what kaijus are, they are simply creatures of Japanese origin, often giant monsters that look like Godzilla, the first of its kind. They then became major figures of Japanese folklore and are today symbols of pop culture in the country, but also everywhere in the world, where the concept is often taken up.
Lately, these monsters have made a remarkable incursion into France, with the launch of the manga Kaiju #8, the first volume of which was released in October 2021 with nearly 250,000 copies. He even offered himself a pictorial representation on one of the sides of the BNF in Paris for the occasion.
This is what awaits the players of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, with epic battles and a captivating story. Besides the Nintendo eShop, you can also find the game cheaper on the Amazon site, where it is available at the price of 53.48€.
