What is ANNO: Mutationem about?
ANNO: Mutationem is an action-adventure with RPG elements. Players take on the role of Ann Flores, who has combat skills and is on a personal mission in a world dominated by mega-corporations, fringe groups and bizarre creatures. According to community manager Martho Ghariani, ThinkingStars was inspired by classics like Ghost in the Shell.
“We’re going to blast the shady neon-drenched city of Noctis, full of cyborg entertainers, hologram V-tuber performances and a sky composed of infinite heights and future cityscapes,” Ghariani wrote on the PlayStation Blog. “We also visit the little European-style streets of Margarita, where Ann’s sister Nakamura runs the family business.” ANNO: Mutationem has players who earn extra as a bartender for some money, and Ann will have plenty of outfits to choose from if she’s not wearing a battle suit.
“While Ann is on the road to find her missing brother, sometimes you just have to sit back: wash dishes, read a newspaper for local news, do your sidequest with mysterious megastar idols, or solve the mysterious case of the strangled neighbor,” Ghariani added. ready.
ANNO: Mutationem is getting both a standard edition and a deluxe edition. The latter comes with the official soundtrack and an artbook.
