Description

Metal Warriors is a video game developed by LucasArts in 1995 for the Super NES and published by Konami. Much of the game mechanics fall inline with a platform game. On top of the regular single player game, the addition of a 2 player split screen versus mode was ahead of its time and added value to the title. Most notably each selectable robot has their own melee weapons in the game. The gameplay mechanics and level design are very similar to Assault Suits Valken/Cybernator, but this game is not a sequel to Cybernator as many users tend to believe. Cybernator and Metal Warriors are completely different games made by different companies.The confusion comes from the fact of Konami being the publisher of both games for the US. The game notably made use of each of the Super Nintendo's buttons: The D-Pad would move the player's mech, L would activate power-ups, Select would eject the pilot/enter a mech, Start paused the game, R would activate defenses, Y was the basic ranged weapon, A was the melee weapon, B was movement, and X was tied to a unique ability. (This was not the case for the Drache.)
