Following the destruction of Planet Fleed by the Empire of Vega, Daisuke seeks refuge on our planet. Taken in and raised by Genzo Umon at the Shirakaba Farm, he now faces Vega’s impending invasion of Earth. Daisuke, with the aid of Grendizer, the colossal robot concealed within Genzo Umon’s observatory, is determined to protect Earth. With Kôji Kabuto’s assistance, the Prince of Planet Fleed combats Vega’s onslaughts and their formidable Monstronefs, dispatched to annihilate him.
Players will embody Umon Daisuke and his colossal robot, engaging in epic battles through various gameplay styles: navigating the Spazer (the flying module housing Grendizer), engaging in vertical shoot-’em-up action with Kôji Kabuto’s TFO, and participating in third-person combat by controlling Grendizer. Utilize Grendizer’s iconic and devastating attacks to vanquish the menacing Monstronefs and safeguard our planet.
