It’s been over five years since the initial announcement of Megaton Musashi, and Level-5 shared the debut trailer for its anime that begins airing next month in Japan.
Level-5 first announced Megaton Musashi back in July 2016 as its fifth cross-media project after The Snack World and Yo-kai Watch. We went a few years without getting any news about the series until we saw gameplay footage in December 2019 for Jump Festa 2020. The original concept work showed the game running on a PlayStation platform and Nintendo 3DS, but Level-5 eventually announced its platforms as Nintendo Switch and PS4.
Megaton Musashi is set in a world where 99% of humanity vanished after a mysterious alien attack. The aliens essentially made Earth into their nest by blasting a giant hole into the planet, like a donut. Humankind has no choice but to hide and fight for survival. The game’s story focuses on children who pilot three “Megaton-class” giant mechas as part of a counterattack initiative.
