Nitroplus and NetEase Games have announced the title of their new collaboration: Rusty rabbit. In it, you take control of a rabbit rampaging in a post-apocalyptic world. Gen Urobuchi (known for Fate zero, Puella Magi Madoka MagicaAnd Psycho Pass) is the author. But since it’s aimed at children ages seven and up, it’s likely the story will be gentler fare compared to his previous works.
You can watch the trailer Rusty rabbit Here:
As for its genre, Rusty rabbit is a 2.5 belt scroll action game. The main character, Stamp, is a rabbit who lives in a mysterious post-apocalyptic world. He mostly spends his days collecting trash from ruins and tinkering with machines. One day, while collecting trash, he falls into the lower levels and finds clues about his missing daughter. So Stamp sets out on a journey to find his daughter and discover the secrets of the world.
Since the trailer is a CG concept trailer, it may not reflect the finished product. You can also check out some of the other characters that will appear in Rusty rabbit. As expected, they are all rabbits. The allies Stamp will meet along the way include Lucas (the bartender), Jed (the parts store owner), Eliza (a waitress), and Amelia (the general store owner).
Rusty rabbit is in development for PS5 and Windows PC via Steam. It will be released sometime in 2024.
