Overview:
MechAssault: Phantom War brings the future of interstellar combat to today's handheld gamers in a way that only the Nintendo DS can deliver. MechAssault: Phantom War is a story driven, 3rd person, futuristic shooter where you assume the role of a MechWarrior, trained in the art of controlling a 30 – 100 ton, bipedal, robotic suit of unparalleled destruction...the BattleMech. Enjoy fast action 3D Mech combat via the top screen, while the lower touch screen takes you inside the cockpit to man the controls.

Game Storyline:
The year is 3134, and after 60 years of peace and prosperity the Republic of the Sphere is now living in a dark age of ex-communication. Nearly all Hyperpulse Generators (HPGs), the pinnacles of interstellar communication, have been struck by a virus leaving worlds cut off from all information. With involuntary blinders on, no one in the Republic knows when, or where, the next attack could be coming from. Their only hope is to turn the HPG into an instrument of war.
