Annihilate Familiar Foes

Rip up the planet surface or fly in any of the five Lions as you battle fierce Robeasts and other enemy combatants including several memorable classic villains.

Strategize Carefully

Familiarize yourself with the Lions’ individual strengths and resistances to maximize effectiveness. Pick your Lion wisely based on a number of circumstances – the success of the team depends on it!

Classic Cutscenes
