Today Bandai Namco Entertainment hosted a livestream from Tokyo dedicated to the upcoming mecha strategy JRPG Full Metal Panic! Fight: Who Dares Wins.

Among the information revealed, we learn that the game will release in Japan on May 31st. There will be a collector’s edition titled “Specialist Box,” including quite a few goodies: the “Invisible Victory” special content Blu-Ray disk, a special novel, a drama CD, a mini-script, and a limited edition box with a cover designed by original artist Shiki Douji.

As for the first print bonus, it’ll be a download code for three special weapons for your Arm Slave Mechas.

If you’re unfamiliar with the game, it’s is a turn-based strategy RPG, and development is handled by Bandai Namco’s internal B.B. Studio, that normally works on the Super Robot Wars series.

A new trailer has also been released, and you can check it out below, alongside the full recording of the livestream. If you want to see more, you can also enjoy the first teaser trailer.

We also learn that the game will have a dedicated stage event at Taipei Game Show, which starts on January 26th. It’s quite probable that we’ll learn the release date for the Asian release then, which is quite relevant since it’ll include English subtitles.

Considering that I absolutely love Full Metal Panic!, I really can’t be more excited for this.
