Vanillaware’s 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is finally coming to the West next month, offering gorgeous hand-painted environments and characters along with tactical mech combat. A new 20 minute gameplay video was released by PlayStation Underground, showcasing various aspects of the game including combat. Check it out below for a better idea of the mechanics.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim takes place in alternative history Japan and sees 13 different individuals caught up in the battle against invading kaiju. These characters have their own stories and backgrounds that intertwine throughout. However, there’s also a time-traveling element which is showcased a bit in the video below.

As for the combat, it’s an interesting mix of tactics and extensive dialogue conversations. So while you can take turns and blow up enemies, right down to manually directing shots, characters will also interact with each other in detailed portraits. It’s an interesting take and works well with the aesthetic.

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim is out on September 22nd for PS4. It will include English voiceovers in a day one patch.
