If you're an American 3DS owner who is a fan of mecha then you'll want to know that Iron Combat: War in the Air will be available on March 19th. There's no word of a European version yet.

It's the next game from Teyon, and it takes place in a future that sees people (anime girls, mostly) turned into living weapons.

They've been turned into assault mecha that can fly around in the air and turn into fighter jets at a moment's notice.

The reason for this transformation is due to the belief that these living weapons are the only way to stop an evil corporation that's hell-bent on enslaving humanity.

You'll be up against other aircraft, massive ships, defense arrays, missile units, orbital bases, and more. With each victory, you earn credits to spend on upgrades and new weapons.

Iron Combat has a mission-based Campaign mode and also supplies you a Free Play mode to clear levels without being tied to the narrative.

Find out more about the game on its website.
