A panel at the Fantasia Bunko Festival 2017 event on Saturday announced that the Full Metal Panic! franchise is getting a PlayStation 4 game titled Full Metal Panic! Tatakau Who Dares Wins (Full Metal Panic! Fight Who Dares Wins). B.B. Studio is developing the simulation RPG with a slated release in 2018. Bandai Namco Entertainment will publish the game.

Full Metal Panic! centers around a mercenary group called Mithril on a parallel Earth in which the Cold War did not end in 1991.

The novels have more than 11 million copies in print. Tokyopop published the first five volumes before the company shut down its North American branch in 2011.
