ZANAC x ZANAC (ZANAC x ZANAC) is a 2001 PlayStation game by Compile, released on 28 July 2010 on the PlayStation Store's Game Archives for PlayStation and PlayStation Portable on the PlayStation Store from 28 July 2010.
Zanac Neo features the same gameplay from its predecessor. New to this is the option to choose between three ships, each of its own gameplay style and weaponry. The ship from the original Zanac can also be unlocked either by entering a code or by having a save file from Zanac Classic. Story
Humanity was just barely able to repulse the attack by the System bent on destroying the Earth. However, the battle was not over just yet. The System had used its long existence to multiply, and even though one System was destroyed, it was not long before another System took up the attack. That repeat battle has already been going on for 30 years.
Even though humanity has been holding off the System's attack, people are tired and exhausted. However, during the destruction of the System's core, a pilot discovered the escape of a unit with the ability to transmit data. The unit escaped successfully, but as a result of analyzing who the signals were transmitted to, it was discovered that a host computer higher than the System existed. The investigation, along with discovering the location of this higher System, was able to establish its true nature. As the System was originally made as one part, this could be called its parent. If this "Original System" could be destroyed, if it could be silenced, then the command hierarchy could be used to stop all other Systems, and finally the unending attack on the citizens of Earth could be ended.
There was a big problem. The specs of the original System far exceeded that of the other Systems. If they raised a hand against it, humanity would certainly become a target for this Original System. If they did not succeed on the first try, then it need not be said what the final outcome would be. Should they challenge it, or should they continue to endure? Faced with the slow decline of humankind, they decided to fight.
And now, the Zanac unit heads out to begin the final battle.
