Square Enix announced on Thursday that they are launching a new arcade game called Figureheads Ace.
A free-to-play shooter game, Figureheads launched for PC in Japan in March 2016 after some beta testing. A year later, the game was launched on PlayStation 4, in March 2017.
Figureheads Ace will take place in the same world as Figureheads but will have a completely different set of rules and circumstances. According to Anime News Network, in Figureheads Ace, players can gather parts to customise a robot called “2Foot” and compete online in three vs. three matches. The game allows the player to install a “Figurehead” as the brain of their 2Foot. These Figureheads will allow the robot to have special skills and will also voice updates on the battle’s progress.
Figureheads Ace will hit the arcades in Japan come 21 June.
