The folks behind Baten Kaitos and Xenosaga may be Nintendo property now, but they're still working with the Bandai Namco Group. According to the latest issue of Famitsu, Monolith Software is developing Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier. The game will be published in Japan by Banpresto this Spring.
In Endless Frontier, you play as a bounty hunter called Hawking Browning who's out to... well, we're not sure what his goal is, but at least he's surrounded by chicks! Joining Hawking on his journey are the female android Ashen Brade, the heroine Kaguya Nanbu, and the princess Suzuka.
Outside of the human (and humanoid) characters, the game will feature robots -- not too surprising, since it's a Super Robot game and all. While Famitsu couldn't get confirmation from producer Kouji Ishitani and director Soichiro Morizumi, it appears that the Super Robot characters will act as your enemies.
Gameplay details are a bit scarce right now, but it is known that the game will feature random battles. Hawking and his party face off against enemies on the bottom screen using a battle system that allows for devastating combos through simple button presses.
The game will also have a world map which you traverse as you explore the Endless Frontier, a territory that is said to be closely connected to the Super Robot Taisen OG world in some way. We're not sure how much RPG-style exploration you can expect, though, as a screen in the magazine shows the player selecting their next location from a menu.
Given the Spring release date, we expect to hear a lot more on Endless Frontier in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for further details and hopefully first screens.
