G-mode is a mobile games company and they’ve teamed up with Studio AIC to create a new game and anime franchise in the form of Katakyoku no Chronos Gear.
The anime is set in the near future, after mankind has mastered space elevator technology and has started to colonise planets. Guess what? Humanity find themselves in a war with the first extraterrestrial life they encounter – a rather mysterious enemy called Obliquus.
The Chronos Foundation is formed to try and fight back against the superior enemy – and they begin by looking for the living descendants of heroes like Jean d’Arc, Napoleon Bonaparte and Musashi Miyamoto. These descendants, hopefully heroes themselves, are then fused with biologicial weapons, armoured suits known a Gears.
