Arc System Works Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that Damascus Gear: Operation Osaka, is now available on Nintendo Switch! The latest entry in the mech combat action RPG series, Operation Osaka offers up more action, more customization, and more options to players than ever before.
The GEAR System was revealed by the Atsuga Corporation in the mid-21st century, revolutionizing all technologies and allowing for the perfection of piloted humanoid robots called GEARs. With the outbreak of the World War Four in 2050 and the loss of control of the GEAR System that followed, the world changed completely. The berserk GEARs became know as RAGE, and combat GEARs around the world began a total massacre of humanity. Humanity was pushed to the brink of extinction, but a few survivors escaped underground and began analyzing the GEAR System to prepare for a counterattack.
The war between humans and RAGE was exceedingly fierce, but thanks to the counter-RAGE organization Freyja and a certain GEAR mercenary, they steadily began recovering key locations on the surface. In 2112, over 50 years after the war began, humanity reclaimed Japan from the RAGE.
30 years later, a beacon of light and hope, the Cosmopolis was built upon Osaka. A pilot with an inherited GEAR and huge debt sets out with his Operator to become a Ranker in the Arena. It will not be a story for the history books, but simply a battle for their freedom…
The goal of Damascus Gear: Operation Osaka is to repay the hero’s significant debt before the due date. In the Cosmopolis, GEAR pilots fight day and night in the Arena for large sums of Eyn (this world’s currency). The hero will participate in the Arena as a Ranker, aiming to use the prize money to repay his debt. Once per day, the hero can choose to go on a mission or enter the Arena.
During missions, you explore dungeons to collect new parts, while you can win prize money and rank up by fighting in the Arena. Complete missions to enhance your GEAR, and earn prize money in the Arena before the due date. If you don’t make it by the due date…
Fight action packed battles against other mechs to win both money and Arena Points. Obtaining Arena Points increases your rank, opening up more opportunity. The fights can range between intense 1v1 clashes to having a variety of special conditions to win.
Explore the Cosmopolis dungeon, a sprawling area that changes every time you enter, to collect parts and other items for your GEAR. Raise your rank in the Arena to unlock more difficult dungeons, and complete special sub missions to unlock bonus rewards.
Make changes to and customize your GEAR, in an unprecedented amount of ways! GEARs have 8 components to upgrade: head, body, arms, legs, shoulders, right weapon, left weapon, and back weapon. With over 1000 parts, 80 unique traits to choose from, and custom paint jobs, your GEAR will become truly yours.
A first for the series, level up and customize your GEAR pilot as well, choosing from five different stats to build up.
EXPANSIVE CAST OF CHARACTERS
