Ring of Red is Konami's strategy mech title for the Sony PlayStation 2. On Friday, GameSpot News acquired new screens from the game. The story takes place in an alternate world where Japan did not surrender after the Pacific War, resulting in the separation between north and south. Tanks are now replaced by mechs called armed fighting walkers, or AFWs.
The game will be real-time based, where players will have to make decisions as the battle is in progress. Players will have several main characters serving as pilots of the AFWs, as well as several infantry units supporting the mechs in the battlefield.
Ring of Red is slated for a September release in Japan. Expect to see a full preview next week.
