Starwing Paradox (星と翼のパラドクス, Hoshi to Tsubasa no Paradokusu) is an arcade game by Square Enix with animation produced by Sunrise. The game feature character designs by Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, mechanical designs by Ippei Gyōbu and Junya Ishigaki, and a script by Yoichi Kato. The voice cast include Mikako Komatsu, Ryoko Shiraishi, and Ayaka Suwa.
In Starwing Paradox, two teams of eight players each pilot giant humanoid mechs in a battle to control the playing field and assault the opposing team’s base. The object of the game is to destroy the opposing team’s core, which is protected by a barrier that can only be brought down by capturing three of the five neutral objectives, known as ports, on the map.
In addition to the standard flying, shooting and sword-fighting actions expected of mech combat, the players’ mechs can enter a high-speed “Full Drive” mode to move between objectives in a matter of seconds. Prior to each game, players can customize their mechs with an assortment of weapons and head/body/limb models to suit their play style and role within the team.
Tournament events for the game were supposed to be held in Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, and Fukuoka on August 17 and August 24, 2019. However, the tournament events were canceled due to Square Enix receiving death threats.
