Tiny Metal: Full Metal Rumble – a follow-up to the 2017 turn-based strategy game Tiny Metal – has been announced to be hitting Steam soon. Developer Area 35 promises that it will offer greater challenges and more powerful foes for players to overcome. There will also be new commander powers and passive bonuses to help them on their way.

The story of the game follows Commander Wolfram as she leads her White Fangs force to fight against the Dinoldan armies and look for her missing brother. Along the way, they also have to try to prevent an ancient, terrible technology from surfacing and threatening the entire world.

Written by Hirotaka Inaba – who also worked on Square Enix’s RPG title I Am Setsuna – the story promises a "twisting tale” of victory and tragedy. The music, meanwhile, is done by composer Tomoki Miyoshi, who also has several credits under his belt including Steins;Gate, I Am Setsuna, and Lost Sphear.

"The all-star team of developers at Area 35 are thrilled to bring our gripping wartime narrative packed with exciting new features and challenges, to PC alongside Nintendo Switch,” said producer Hiroaki Yura. “The tremendous community support for Tiny Metal’s nostalgic tactical gameplay drives our development on this next chapter.”

Tiny Metal currently has a mediocre review point of 68 on Metacritic, which means it’s not too bad but also not anything to write home about. Hopefully, this upcoming sequel will expand on the established formula to deliver a better experience. From what we know so far, the game will feature 39 campaign missions as well as 77 skirmish maps (21 of which are for multiplayer), in addition to over 23 types of units and new Commander and Hero. Various difficulties are also available, making it friendly for both veterans and newcomers.
