Console: Gameboy Advance
Car Battler Joe is the Mad Max-inspired JRPG you never knew you wanted. The world lies in ruins, pockets of civilization band together in run-down villages, and car battlers make their living by going into the wastes looking for scrap and competing in deadly competitions. Your father has gone missing, and rumor has it that he’s been hanging out with the most ruthless car-battling gang out there.
And so you must travel from town to town, chat with the locals, take on odd jobs, upgrade your car, and scour the land looking for clues to your father’s whereabouts. It’s a bizarre blend of genres, but Car Battler Joe makes it all come together in explosive fashion.
