In side-scrolling areas, control the your extremely mobile tank to explore the vast stages as you search for any mutant threats that may lurk in the shadows.
To confront the bosses, you’ll need to enter their dungeons on foot as Jason.
Disembark SOPHIA III and venture inside to enter the game’s numerous top-down action dungeons.
Defeat bosses and mid-bosses to obtain useful items and weapons and power up Jason and SOPHIA III, then use your new abilities to access new areas in the side-scrolling stages.
What encounters and trails await Jason on his subterranean adventure…?
