Megazone 23 Blue Garland

Fans of the animation series Megazone 23 seeking closure won't find it in the new PS3 adventure. Shogo Yahagi from the original series is gone and replaced by a new hero named Hiroto Takanaka. Returning characters include Yui Takanaka, Eve Tokimatsuri, and B.D. Yui sports a pair of red eyes in the PS3 game and is back in her green hair which was seen in Megazone 23 Part 1. In Part 2 of the animation, she was brunette with hazel eyes. Eve looks like a stewardess in a tan/brown uniform and B.D. is an older version of his incarnation from Megazone 23 Part 2.

The game takes players to an alternate reality version of Megazone 23 Part I which is set 20 years after the conclusion of the first animated series. The bulk of the game is made up of interactive scenarios but there's a point and click traveling sequence dubbed Cockpit and a battle mode where fighting actions are selected from a menu. Once an action is chosen, the Garland throws out a slash attack or fires off a round of artillery.
