What Is Wolfstride?
Wolfstride tells the tale of three former partners-in-crime who team up to take on a world-famous giant mecha tournament. Yes, that’s right. These three friends have come together after years spent apart. They’ve inherited a rundown mech just in time to enter the world’s elite mecha competition: the Ultimate Golden God Tournament.
They’ve all each got their specialistaions: dog-mechanic Duque repairs the mech between battles, former Yakuza member Dominic Shade explores the city, and mecha pilot Knife Leopard is your man at the helm when the battle goes down. Together, these three make the perfect combination for a well-rounded story.
However, what begins as a simple money-making scheme becomes so much more. The game explores their dark histories, which help determine their futures too. Repair and upgrade by doing odd jobs to pay the bills, and battle the best-of-the-best all while running from the regrettable choices of the past.
The turn-based gameplay works perfectly with the mech genre, and the anime-inspired art style gives the game some amazing visual presentation. Add that to the humorous script, captivating story, and brilliant soundtrack, and you’ve got the recipe for a fun game that almost anyone can take up.
