Metal Saga: Hagane no Kisetsu (Japanese: メタルサーガ ~鋼の季節~, literally Metal Saga: Season of Steel[2]) is a post-apocalyptic role-playing video game developed by Crea-Tech and published by Success in 2006. It running in Nintendo DS and it's a full touch screen controlled game.[1]

Metal Saga: Hagane no Kisetsu is the fifth game of Metal Max series. Unlike its predecessor Metal Saga, the game wasn't released in North America. And in 2007, a sequel was released on mobile phone as an incarnation of Metal Saga and was released in Japan in 2007.

This entry is very different with original games. For example, multiple characters sit in only a tank instead of one person sit in one,[3] and using "durability" instead of tank's armor.[4]


Like most role-playing video games, players travel around the world, buy powerful equipment, battle with monsters and save the world. Unlike all predecessors, the world map uses a 45-degree angle view, and using a point instead town or dungeon' pigeon hole, with the only way from a point to a point; once the player completes the task, the next location will appear on the map.

Combat is individually turn-based, players can choose to combat enemies by foot or with a tank. All party members can equip multiple weapons, and can choose the one to attack enemy in one turn. On the other hand if the party members choose to fight whilst being in the tank, every character will need to use different weapon to attack enemy in each turn. Each weapon and monster has their own property, like fire, light etc. Allelopathy property will affect the attack effect.[5]


The game start after the story of the first Metal Max. In the first title, a supercomputer named Noah have its own thinking, and want to destroy mankind; after scores years, Noah was destroy by the legendary hunter Rebanna.[6] Then he was committed to protecting the environment, but one day he died by gasses. But Noah know that he will be broken by human one day, so it backed up itself in a safety container — "Noah Seed", and waiting to resurrection. So Rebanna's child travels to eliminate this.[7]
