A new Japanese mobile game, Guardian Project, officially launched in Japan on 14 June 2019. The game is available on both the Japanese Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Guardian Project is described as a “Naval warfare simulation RPG with beautiful girls”. You play as a commander of ‘Guardians’ that can control warships to fight against a rogue faction of Guardians called Arc.
When it comes to combat, you tap on the screen to move your fleet. As they move, your warships will fire on the enemy automatically. There are different combat mechanics that will help you, such as your Guardians’ skills and air bombardments.
Guardian Project has a visual-novel-styled approach to storytelling, which is nice if that’s your preference. It starts off with the commander, you, waking up from cold sleep to a changed world. You’ll meet your first group of Guardians who will be part of your fleet at the beginning.
Besides that, the game features a naval base building component and ‘Dormitories’ where your Guardians get to hang out. The base building part is where you can construct a variety of naval buildings. These will provide direct bonuses to your fleet. You also have to build defensive structures to defend your base from other players’ fleets.
As for the Dormitories, it’s where you can visit your Guardians and give them presents to increase their affection level. There will also be the occasional bonus item you can collect here.
Please note that Guardian Project is only available in Japan at the moment and there’s no news of a global release yet. But if you want to find out more about the game, you can visit the official website or follow the Twitter account.
