It’s definitely worth noting that Armored Core 6 comes from critically-acclaimed developer FromSoftware… And it’s also worth noting that this game is so, so much more than simply “mech Dark Souls”. Armored Core 6 is a brand-new action experience that combines chaotic omni-direction battles with intricate mech customization and challenging boss battles. Much like the developer’s previous games, Armored Core 6 exists in a genre of its own.

This is the story of two magical children who mysteriously possess the power of the sun and moon. Working together to utilize their “Eclipse Magic” is the only way that they (and the rest of their companions) will be able to fend off the creations of an evil alchemist known only as The Fleshmancer.
