Nitroplus and NetEase Games have announced the title of their new collaborative work, Rusty Rabbit. In it, you take control of a rabbit that goes on a rampage in a post-apocalyptic world. Gen Urobuchi (known for Fate/Zero, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, and Psycho-Pass) is the writer. But since it’s for ages seven and up, it’s likely that the story will be softer fare in comparison to his previous works.
You can watch the trailer for Rusty Rabbit here:
In terms of its genre, Rusty Rabbit is a 2.5 belt scroll action game. The main character, Stamp, is a rabbit living in a mysterious post-apocalyptic world. He mostly spends his days collecting trash from ruins and fiddling with machines. One day, while collecting junk, he falls into the lower levels and finds clues to his missing daughter. Thus, Stamp sets out on a journey to find his daughter and discover the secrets of the world.
Since the trailer is a CG concept one, it might not reflect the finished product. You can also check out some of the other characters who will appear in Rusty Rabbit. As you might expect, they’re all rabbits. Some allies that Stamp will meet on the way include Lucas (the barkeep), Jed (the parts shop owner), Eliza (a waitress), and Amelia (the shopkeeper of the general store).
Rusty Rabbit is in development for the PS5 and Windows PC via Steam. It’ll come out sometime in 2024.
