TDK and Mattel announce Robotech: Battlecry

Cel-shaded mech game set for Cube, PS2 and Xbox

TDK Mediactive and Mattel have announced Robotech: Battlecry for the GameCube, PlayStation 2 and Xbox, IGN is reporting. The game is being developed by Vicious Cycle, and will feature cel-shaded visuals in line with the television programme. Early Xbox screenshots demonstrate vast environments, particle effects and other minutiae, while the plot concerns saving the world from the clutches of the evil Zentraedi, by piloting the Veritech Fighter mech into battle. "Robotech is a phenomenal brand with great potential," Mattel's senior veepee of new media Amy Boylan told IGN, while TDK are said to be "extremely pleased" with the partnership and the product, which will be on display for the first time at E3 next month.
