Shogo: Mobile Armor Division is a first person shooter video game released by Monolith Productions in 1998. It was the first game to use Monolith’s flagship Lithtech engine. It has heavy influences from Japanese animation, particularly Patlabor and Appleseed and the real robot mecha genre. The game allows the player to pilot a large mech, as well as perform missions on foot. Players take the role of Sanjuro Makabe, a Mobile Combat Armor (MCA) pilot and a commander in the United Corporate Authority (UCA) army, during a brutal war for the planet Cronus and its precious liquid reactant, kato. Players must locate and assassinate a rebel leader known only as Gabriel. Prior to the game’s first level, Sanjuro had lost his brother, Toshiro; his best friend, Baku; and his girlfriend, Kura, during the war. He is now driven by revenge and his romantic relationship with Kathryn, Kura’s sister; in Sanjuro’s words, “It’s kinda complicated.” Download the demo on Aminet!
