    Полностью переведенная на русский язык и адаптированная версия игры "Shogo. Mobile armor division" (Издатели за пределами СНГ: Monolith Production/Takarajimasha)

    Трехмерная аркадная игра с увлекательным сюжетом. Действие игры происходит на планете Кронус, единственном месте во вселенной, где добывают "като". "Като" - это уникальное вещество, с помощью энергии которого можно передвигаться на огромные расстояния за ничтожно малое время.

    Уже много лет контроль над планетой осуществлял альянс TBS. Но на планете вспыхнуло восстание "Падших", так называли себя повстанцы. Молодому капитану Санджуро Макабе поручена сложная миссия: убить вождя Падших - таинственного незнакомца Габриэля, авторитет и революционные методы которого представляют наибольшую угрозу.

    В "Ярости" сюжет играет не меньшую роль, чем в кинобоевике. Сложные переплетения отношений главного героя с персонажами игры, любовные истории, дружба и предательство, все это увлекает игрока и заставляет эмоционально переживать все происходящее в игре.

    Особенности игры

    • динамическое освещение;
    • превосходные спецэффекты;
    • максимальное использование возможностей 3D-акселератора;
    • четыре типа роботов;
    • два режима игры (обычным пехотинцем и в гигантском МСА роботе);
    • более 40 нелинейных миссий;
    • динамический сюжет, зависящий от Ваших собственных действий;
    • более 30 типов различных врагов, способных не только стрелять, но и отнимать у Вас ресурсы, вызывать подмогу и расставлять ловушки;
    • более 20 видов смертельного оружия в отдельных арсеналах для роботов и пехотинцев.

Official game's website:
    Shogo casts you in the role of Sanjuro Makabe, a Mobile Combat Armor pilot and Commander in the UCA Security Force. Control ultra-powerful mecha that run, jump, duck, strafe, swim, and stomp on enemy personnel. Wield gigantic, super-destructive weapons, and transform into a hover tank in 800 milliseconds flat. You may have driven giant robots, but you've never piloted Mobile Combat Armor... Until now.

Back of box:
    Forget what you think you know about giant robots ...

    The Andra Predator MCA runs, jumps, ducks, strafes, swims, and transforms into an ultrafast hovertank. And because the Predator is as responsive and agile as its human pilot, it can do anything you can do, only better, faster, and five times the scale. You may have driven giant robots, but you have never piloted Mobile Command Armor.

    Until now.

Unknown Source:
    The single biggest thing that points to an anime heritage in a game is the existence of anthropomorphic, robotic battle armor. Alot of different cultures create mechs, BattleTech armor and such. But the Japanese created the "Mecha"; the machine that moves like a man.

    In the game, missions will be played on foot and in MCA ("mobile combat armor" which can also be pronounced "mecha"). The two types of missions will differ in many ways. Adventures in your favorite MCA (choices will number four, but other MCA exist in the game) will take place in huge, open areas like cities, underground caves and huge factories.

    Being 30' tall has its advantages. You will have the ability to stomp on cars, trees and people (and theoretically, on-foot enemy). Being able to carry a few tonne in your arms all so advantages. The weapons are huge. Everything from the Celsior AS-10 (that weight a measly 272kg) to the MT-101 (that sits at a heftier 760kg).
