As the first spin-off work of the 30th anniversary tank, dog, and human RPG Metal Max series, the familiar Shiba Inu “Pochi” who helps humans in the usual series and the fighting dogs are selected as the main characters. ! A casual shooting action game that even non-fans can enjoy!!

    The stage is “Aokigahara Heaven Hill”, a former human base at the foot of Mt. Fuji. The adventure of the dogs begins in this land that has been turned into ruins on the verge of annihilation due to the invasion of monsters.
