Macross 30: Voices across the Galaxy (マクロス30 銀河を繋ぐ歌声, Makurosu 30: Ginga wo tsunagu utagoe) is an action role-playing game for the PlayStation 3 developed by Artdink and published by Namco Bandai Games. The game commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Macross anime series created by Shoji Kawamori, featuring every series from the franchise. The game was released on February 28, 2013.
The gameplay of Macross 30 inherits the same gameplay seen in previous Macross games. The game has two types of controls: the Type A modeled after the controls in such games as Macross Trial Frontier and Macross Last Frontier, and the Type B that allows the player to manually move the weapons lock-on cursor for pinpoint accuracy. The game’s Easy setting (the lowest of the three difficulty levels) has an auto combat feature; when a novice toggles the feature on during the game, an AI will take over the controls and automatically fight the battle.
Being an action RPG, the main character allows to have interactivity with other characters and also make decisions.
The game is set in year 2060, 50 years after the Space War I conflict seen in the first Macross series and one year after the Vajra War seen in Macross Frontier. Above the planet Ouroboros in the far reaches of the galaxy, S.M.S. pilot Leon Sakaki is suddenly attacked by an unknown enemy and shot down in his YF-25 Prophecy. There, he is rescued by the heroine Aisha Blanchette, the young Zentradi head of S.M.S.’s branch on Ouroboros.
Due to the intermittent space-fold faults known as “Ouroboros Aurora,” Leon cannot immediately return home. He decides to join Aisha in investigating the planet’s ruins, and while on an underground survey, the two discover a sleeping girl named Mina Forte. Unknown to them, their fates will be crossed with the ones throughout space and time.
