The official website for the Full Metal Panic! Fight! Who Dares Wins (Full Metal Panic! Tatakau Who Dares Wins) PlayStation 4 game began streaming the first promotional video on Monday. The video reveals that the game will ship in Japan on May 31.
The regular edition of the game will cost 8,200 yen (about US$74), and the limited-edition Specialist Box will cost 11,800 yen (about US$107). The Specialist Box will bundle a making of Blu-ray Disc for the Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory anime, novel by original light novel series author Shoji Gatoh, audio drama CD, reproduction signed mini script for the audio drama, and special box. The first copies of the game will include a download code for three special weapons for Arm Slaves.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia will offer an English-subtitled release of the game in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines in 2018. B.B. Studio is developing the simulation RPG.
The Full Metal Panic! Invisible Victory television anime series will premiere in spring 2018. The anime's first season received a three-film director's cut version, and the third film premiered on Saturday.
The story of Full Metal Panic! centers around a mercenary group called Mithril on a parallel Earth in which the Cold War did not end in 1991. Sōsuke Sagara, a seventeen year old military specialist working for Mithril, has been assigned to go undercover to protect high school student Kaname Chidori.
Gatoh launched the original Full Metal Panic! light novel series with Shikidouji's illustrations in 1998, and Fujimi Shobo published the series' 12th and final novel in the main series in 2010. 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.
