Kouashi Kikou Shidan - Bein Panzer Japan

Joining the strangely growing ranks of Sony's curious first-party release lineup for the PlayStation in Japan is Bein Panzer, a 3D strategy throwback to some of the oldest concepts in tabletop wargaming. Set in an alternate world, it appears to be the creation of some die-hard tank otaku, let loose to create his own unusual armor designs. It's a sort of Space: 1889 vision of World War II, with extra-mobile walking tanks and tilt-rotor aircraft that look like they were designed round about 50 years ago, and powers controlling the inner solar system with a strong visual resemblance to nations like Churchill's England and the Grand Duchy of Zeon. Hey, if it works for them...
