Last September, we learned that Shuyo Murata and Hideo Kojima's Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner was en route to PC (opens in new tab). This September, we'll get to play it—as the third-person mech action slasher is due September 6, 2018.
Having first starred on PlayStation 2 consoles in 2003, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars—or M∀RS, as it's stylised—is a 4K remaster that supports VR. It comes with a host of new features too, not least a 'Pro Mode' controller setup, best suited to rapid-fire attacks; and a 'Very Easy' difficulty setting, which, as the name suggests, dials back enemy aggression.
Moreover, training modules and a mini-map offer extra support for new faces, while a 3D Hangar, a 3D Model Viewer, and a Cinematic Theatre are designed with ZoE's virtual reality support in mind.
Here's another look at the Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars comparison trailer (opens in new tab), which contrasts this outing, the HD slant that featured on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, and the 2003 original.
Again, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner Mars in due September 6 on PC via Steam. There, it'll cost £24.99/your regional equivalent.
