Mobile game company G-mode has teamed up with Anime International Company (AIC) to create a new multimedia franchise named Katayoku no Khronos Gear which will include a game and manga by G-mode and an OVA from AIC which will get a release this summer.
In the near future, humanity has completed a space elevator and has started to colonise oplanets in the solar system. Then a mysterious extraterrestrial enemy, known as “Obliquus”, raid a space station as a prelude to their invasion of the solar system. The human race enters into a space war with the first extraterrestrial life form it has ever encountered. In order to combat the overwhelming technological might of the “Obliquus”, the Khronos Foundation has assembled the descendants of historical heroes from Musashi Miyamoto, to Napoleon Bonaparte, and Jean d'Arc. These heroes from around the world are then fused with battle suits known as Gears to create specialized biological weapons called Khronos Gears. These Khronos Gears will then train within a specially established school campus to prepare for combat.
