Halfbrick's next game inspired by 'craziest anime'

Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride developer Halfbrick announced its next game today — Colossatron: Massive World Threat.

The action mobile game draws inspiration from anime and cartoons of the 80s and centers around "the biggest and most powerful being to every wage war against mankind," the studio said in a statement.

Playing as a giant robotic snake called a Colossatron, players crash-land onto planet Earth and must proceed to do as much damage as possible across the globe. Players will build and shape the Colossatron by attaching red, blue and yellow Powernodes, with each color representing a different weapon or ability. Players can also combine the Powernodes to form new colors and stronger Powernode tiers.

The entire game will be covered "live" by the in-game Metro 6 Action News anchors, and players will have to battle the planet's military while continuing to cause as much damage as possible. Success is measured by the dollars of damage caused.

The game's debut trailer with gameplay footage can be viewed above. No release date has been announced. We have reached out to Halfbrick to confirm which devices will support the game.

Update: A Halfbrick spokesperson told Polygon that the game is still in the early stages of development so it has not decided which platforms the game will be released on.
