Super Senso (Free) has undoubtedly been one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of 2017, and for good reason. While the game has been in soft launch since late 2015, and we have caught numerous glimpses of the title at events such as PAX in the subsequent fifteen months or so, Super Senso only released on the North American App Store last Thursday, with a worldwide release still in the pipeline. Initial impressions on our forum thread have been generally positive, with the futuristic fast-paced real time strategy action going down well with the iOS community at large, and such fervent pre-release hype being met by those eagerly anticipating an Advanced Wars-esque alternative on the App Store. To celebrate its long-awaited North American launch, publishers GungHo have released a brand new trailer for Super Senso, which showcases the numerous different characters that can be encountered in the game, as well as a taste of the title’s eccentric humor.
While I cannot condone every comedic device used – does anyone actually still use #YOLO in 2017? – the new launch trailer for Super Senso certainly emphasises its ridiculous production values, and goes some way to position it as a turn based strategy alternative to App Store titans such as Hearthstone (Free) and Clash Royale (Free). Amidst a dystopian setting of mercenary-for-hire company Senso Arms Incorporated, fictional CEO Max Chowderman introduces numerous classes of characters within Super Senso. Particular highlights include The Mastermind, who can swap positions with other units on the battlefield, as well as the basic yet purr-fect Cat-At-Arms, who is simply a ‘cat who has been trained to murder people’. This new Super Senso trailer not only helps to demonstrate both the significant character variation between the units, but also how their capabilities lead to numerous different strategies on the turn based battlefield. Watch the trailer above for additional details, download the game if you’re in lucky enough to be in one of the initial launch regions, and check out our forum thread for more discussion on Super Senso.
