Mac Shogo Released
12:17 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Despite a number of delays, Titan Computer has announced the Macintosh version of Shogo: Mobile Armor Division is now completed and shipping. A demo was released quite a while ago, so if haven't already tried it out be sure to do so. Shogo is an anime-style FPS which uses an early version of Monolith's LithTech engine. Here's more info on the game from Titan's web site:

Shogo: Mobile Armor Division" is a first-person shooter with a difference. It draws its inspiration from such anime classics (Japanese animation) as "Macross" (aka "Battletech") and "Gundam", not only because it allows you to do battle in a 10 meters tall robot but also because the game actually has a credible plot that unfolds as you progress in the game.


In Shogo you play Sanjuro, a hotshot commander caught in the middle of a war against a terrorist organisation that cost him his family and his girl-friend. As the plot develops, you will find out that not everything is as you thought it was. But make no mistake: Shogo is all about furious 3D action.

Hopefully now that some of it has been ported to the Mac, we might see other Lithtech-based games ported to the Mac OS as well (such No One Lives Forever, fingers crossed!). One question about Shogo's release is whether Titan, a German company, will be able to distrubute the game in North America. We've contacted them for details and will let you know what we discover.
