So far, we all know the players will be part of a police special forces unit in a futuristic city, and they are utilizing a living weapon called the Legion, which shows a very synergy and high-paced combat system. More details regarding the gameplay will be revealed in the future.

In addition to this, a collector’s edition has been announced for Japan, including an Original Art Book and Original Soundtrack CD. We still have yet to know whether the western release of the game will get the same treatment.
