I just came across this randomly and noticed there hasn't been much reporting on it yet. If there's any Zoids fans here, you might be interested in this.

'London, July 9th, 2020 - TOMY Company, Ltd. and Outright Games, the leading worldwide publisher of family-friendly interactive entertainment have awakened the call to bring Zoids Wild: Blast Unleashed, from Japan to the rest of the world. This brand new Zoids video game combines simple and intuitive 3D combat with spectacular, anime graphics and is coming exclusively to Nintendo Switch™ on October 16th 2020.

Watch the brand new announce trailer here:


In Zoids Wild: Blast Unleashed players will let loose the wild mecha power and animal instincts of Zoids, in breathtaking, head-to-head battles against friends or in a new single player Zoids story that follows the war between Arashi’s Team Freedom and the power-hungry Team Dark Metal.

“We are thrilled to be part of the charge, bringing this newest iteration of the legendary Zoids franchise to the West” said Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games. “This is an intergenerational brand that resonates with kids and adults alike, and we can’t wait for everyone to dive into the action and play together later this year.”

This brand new video game is based on the smash hit ‘Zoids Wild’ anime series, the latest iteration of the 35+ year global franchise that spans model kits, comics, TV and video games. With faithful anime graphics, and intuitive 3D combat, Zoids Wild Blast Unleashed is the ultimate mecha showdown!

  • Go head to head – Compete in 1vs1 mecha battles with breathtaking 3D combat

All these years later I still chuckle at what a fucking moron that guy is.

Does this have anything to do with that old "DinoZoids" cartoon?

If it's not arena combat then I don't think I'm interested. Loved Zoids, but the cartoon was really cool because of the battles happening on expansive landscapes. How different Zoids had strengths and weaknesses, like ranged combat or infiltration, cloaking abilities. The best part of Zoids was about how the characters managed the battlefield. This game...is just a fighting game.
