First impressions make it look like a fighting game, though the absence of an actual UI in the trailer makes it hard to tell if it would be some kind of tag team battler. Edward can alchemize weapons, and of course, characters have their flashy finishers. As for the story, there’s only a preview of the early arcs and a glimpse of the final one, so who knows what else they could put in. At time of writing, it’s a little unclear if Arakawa will be supervising the script.
