Dear friends, pixel-lovers, and neon-thrillseekers, we’re excited to bring you an update and an exciting new trailer today. Anno: Mutationem launches March 17 on PS5 and PS4, and it’s available to pre-order at PS Store now.
In this post, we’ll focus on a few snippets from the trailer and let you know our main character Ann Flores will be up to this March.
Special thanks to @Kuvshinov_Ilya, who is an amazing animator and created the for Anno: Mutationem key art at the top of this article.
Taking references from classics like Ghost in the Shell, we go in blasting with the shady, neon-drenched city of Noctis, full of cyborg entertainers, hologram V-tuber performances, and a sky that is composed of infinite heights and future cityscapes.
We also visit the European-style small streets of Margarita where Ann’s sister Nakamura is running the family business. You can even make an extra buck moonlighting there as a bartender. Shaken, not stirred, and full of pixels, please.
From cool scenes to swanky sartorial options. Battle suits are awesome, but variety is the spice of life for our hero Ann (what if you want to relax at home in a sporty outfit?)
There will be a bunch of costume options for Ann, ranging from a bartending outfit, casual sport outfit, or even an elegant black dress. The latter outfit is picked out by Ann’s hyper-hacker buddy, Ayane, as part of the main quest line (though it may not quite be Ann’s first choice). Get ready to dress to impress and dance to make friends.
While Ann is on her way trying to find her missing brother, sometimes you just gotta kick back: Wash up, check out a newspaper for local news, get your sidequest on with mysterious megastar idols, or solve the mysterious case of the strangled neighbor. Knock yourself out! Also… knock out your enemies in the Corn Juice Combat Street Tournament….don’t ask, just punch.
So, about the cyber corgi at Harbour Town’s bar and the mysterious mecha-monk… We’d love to get into that but we suddenly feel kinda…dizzy? Did we exceed the daily pixel dose? Neon sunstroke? Or, perhaps it’s the mysterious little girl at the end of the trailer? Hmmm, maybe we should lie down for a bit.
Thanks so much for checking us out and we hope we managed to get your interest for Anno: Mutationem going. Please consider learning more about our game at PS Store and maybe hitting that pre-order button. Anno: Mutationem hits both PS4 and PS5 on March 17, available in either standard or deluxe edition (containing a bunch of cool stuff including the OST and a digital artbook).
