Combatron Videogame Announced at ESGS 2016!

Here’s a blast from the past for all you 90’s kids! Funny Komiks’ classic character Combatron is getting a videogame!

At the recently concluded ESGS 2016, local studio Ranida Games took to the stage to announce that they are currently developing a videogame based on  the familiar blue cyborg, Combatron. The character rose to popularity in the early 90’s when its stories were published in the local comicbook serial, Funny Komiks. The komiks tells the tale of a young boy named Empoy who inherits a powerful cybernetic armor from an injured alien warrior called Combatron. Empoy also takes the mantle of the fallen warrior and fights evil alien invaders looking to subjugate the Earth.

Combatron’s creator Berlin Manalaysay has already given his approval in using the character and will working closely with the team at Ranida Games to make sure the game will be as good and as true to the original comicbook as it can possibly be.

At the moment, Ranida Games hasn’t disclosed what genre the game is going to be so we’ll have to keep an ear out for news and bring you updates when we get it. For now, enjoy this teaser trailer that Ranida has released featuring sample art of how the graphics of the game might look like.
