Based on the manga/anime Zipang. The background of this game has its main character slip back in time to the Battle of Midway during World War II. Bandai's PS2 version of the show follows up on this background story, taking the form of a simulation game in which players control the "Mirai" destroyer. Zipang is set up as a series of real time missions surrounded by conversation sequences that advance a storyline. Your goal in the missions is to avoid loss of life, with the game evaluating your performance based on how much of your crew your protect. During a mission, you can get a fix on your surroundings from three different perspectives: the bridge, the deck and the radar room. In addition to making decisions based off clues from these areas, you'll also need to make use of intercepted enemy messages.
