    About "Robotech: Battlecry"

    A mission-driven action title, "Robotech: Battlecry" embodies the classic mecha-filled mayhem of the animated series. Featuring all-encompassing destruction on a giant scale, "Robotech: Battlecry" is a high-octane arcade shooter that captures the television show's spectacular visuals and epic storyline.

    As an intrepid fighter pilot, the player must protect the cities of Earth from roving bands of a giant alien race, the Zentraedi™. The player pilots the versatile Veritech™ Fighter - a giant transformable mechanized robot that can convert into a high-flying jet fighter, a 40-foot tall humanoid robot, and a combination of both. Each transformation mode offers new movement options, special abilities or weapons. To succeed in battle, the player must use more than one mode to complete their assigned objectives. In keeping with the "Robotech" identity, the environments, mecha, characters and overall appearance are modeled directly from the stylized look of the highly regarded animated series.

    About the "Robotech" Brand

    Produced by Harmony Gold in 1985 and currently managed by Mattel Inc., "Robotech" fueled the transforming robot craze and drew legions of loyal fans with its richly detailed Japanese animation featuring dazzling science-fiction drama. "Robotech" continues to be one of the most-recognized animated television series to this day. Its ground-breaking production design also launched a worldwide licensing phenomenon that has spawned several toy lines, musical soundtracks, dozens of novels, role-playing games, collectibles, apparel and over 300 comic books.
