Torrance, California – March 07, 2018 – Arc System Works Co., Ltd. is pleased to announce that Damascus Gear: Operation Osaka, is releasing today on Playstation 4, Playstation Vita, and PC (Steam)! The latest entry in the mech combat action RPG series, Operation Osaka offers up more action, more customization, and more options to players than ever before. 

The GEAR System was revealed by the Atsuga Corporation, allowing for the perfection of piloted humanoid robots called GEARs. With the outbreak of World War Four in 2050 and the loss of control of the GEAR System that followed, the world changed completely. Berserk GEARs became known as RAGE, and combat GEARs around the world began a total massacre of humanity. The war between humans and RAGE was exceedingly fierce, but over 50 years after the war began, humanity reclaimed Japan from the RAGE.

30 years later, a beacon of light and hope, the Cosmopolis was built upon Osaka. A pilot with an inherited GEAR and huge debt sets out with his Operator to become a Ranker in the Arena. It will not be a story for the history books, but simply a battle for their freedom...



    The Playstation 4 and PC (Steam) versions boast crisp HD visuals.


    Fight action packed battles against other mechs to win both money and Arena Points. Obtaining Arena Points increases your rank, opening up more opportunity. The fights can range between intense 1v1 clashes to having a variety of special conditions to win. 


    Explore the Cosmopolis dungeon, a sprawling area that changes every time you enter, to collect parts and other items for your GEAR. Raise your rank in the Arena to unlock more difficult dungeons, and complete special sub missions to unlock bonus rewards.


    Make changes to and customize your GEAR, in an unprecedented amount of ways! With over 1000 parts, 80 unique traits to choose from, 4 different mech varieties, and custom paint jobs, your GEAR will become truly yours.


    A first for the series, level up and customize your GEAR pilot as well, choosing from five different stats to build up.


    Over 40 unique characters to interact with as the story progresses.


    Never fight on the same map twice! New routes, treasures, and enemies await you each time you take on a mission. 


    Contains the Damascus Gear timeline, glossary of terms, explanations of parts and traits, and more. Dive deep into the world of Damascus Gear!
