Fifty years since Human Tanks were first developed…

The land of Japon has been split in two and thrown into war by two nations, the Empire of Japon and the Kingdom of Japon, who use biological weapons known as “€?Human Tanks” to fight their war. But now the war between these two has turned into a proxy war between the Human Tanks themselves.

Our hero, Yatarou Shirahase, acting as an officer in the Imperial army, is dispatched on a mission to subjugate the Human Tanks. He must now battle an enemy of the same make as his own beloved company of Human Tanks.

Key features:

  • Over 50 missions with strategic, semi real-time battles
  • Countless cute Human Tanks to battle with and against
  • Replay missions at any time to improve your rank
  • English localisation will feature hand-drawn battle backgrounds and an improved user interface

Limited Operations is designed so that no previous knowledge of the series is required to hop in. Old fans will find delightful details as they make new acquaintances and reunite with old friends.” says Jakke Elonen, Project Lead.

War of the Human Tanks – Limited Operations will come priced at $9.99. The game will include Steam Trading Cards, Achievements and other Steam features. The game’s opening and screenshots can be viewed on the Steam page.

War of the Human Tanks – Limited Operations is now available for pre-order at the official Fruitbat Factory store. As a special pre-order bonus, all pre-orders will receive War of the Human Tanks – Limited Operations: Unlimited Edition (normal price: $12.99) for the price of the regular edition.
