The game revolves around a young archaeologist named Bolt. The fledgling hero discovers advanced robots called "tokobots" during his explorations of ancient ruins. When he discovers that the cataclysms that wiped out the residents of the ruins he's exploring are about to happen again, he sets out with his newfound minions to save the world. The game will drop you into Bolt's shoes and challenge you to explore areas with your 'bot buddies, using them to make your way through increasingly challenging stages. As you progress through the game, you'll unlock special minigames to test your prowess at using the tokobots. The game is another inventive entry in the portfolio of head producer Keisuke Kikuchi, an industry vet whose work at Tecmo has included the Gallop Racer, Deception, and Fatal Frame titles. We caught up with Kikuchi-san to find out about his upcoming title..

Tokobots were excavated from the old ruins on this continent to play a major role in helping to save the world. The main character, Bolt, is a young and inexperienced archaeologist.
