Below you can see a brief description of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim
“13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is a video game where players take control of thirteen different characters, who interact with each other to build a larger narrative. The gameplay is split into three sections:
- Remembrance: features exploration and dialogue taking priority and advancing the narrative;
- Destruction: where characters equip mecha and engage in pausable real-time battles against enemies;
- Analysis: a glossary that documents event scenes and important items and characters.
During the Remembrance segments, the player explores 2D side-scrolling environments, interacting with elements of those environments in a non-linear manner. The battle system of the Destruction mode takes the form of a real-time strategy scenario, with up to six chosen characters using Sentinels to fight off waves of enemies called Kaiju defending a terminal.
Let’s see how the game will perform on Nintendo’s hybrid console.
