Cybernator, known in Japan as Assault Suits Valken (重装機兵ヴァルケン Jūsō Kihei Varuken), is a 2D mecha game developed by Masaya released in 1992 for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The second entry in the Assault Suits series,it is a prequel to the first game, Target Earth. The game was localized and published overseas by Konami. The story follows Jake Brain who pilots a giant mecha who fights in a war engulfing the entire world.
The game takes place in the future, during a time when Earth's fossil fuels have begun to dwindle. There is a massive war taking place all over the earth for control of these resources, as well as for territorial rights on the moon. The two warring governments, the Axis and Federation, have the ability to go into space and create giant space stations and weapons of mass destruction.
Jake is the game's protagonist. He is a soldier drafted into the Pacific States' Marine Corp and pilots a Federation Assault Suit. The Suit has a humanoid shape, with arms, legs, torso, and head. It is equipped with a variety of weapons and other special accessories, giving it full land and minor air capabilities.
Jake and his platoon are tasked with destruction of Bildvorg, the most powerful mech of the Axis forces. The various missions in the game lead up to the completion of this objective.
Although Cybernator was released after Target Earth, Cybernator takes place a decade before Target Earth.
In Assault Suit Valken 2, Jake makes a cameo appearance as a 30-year-old veteran soldier who assists in battles as an NPC.
The game has two endings. The bad ending can be acquired if the player fails most of the side-missions in the game, such as failing to stop Arc Nova from falling or allowing the enemy space shuttle escape in the 5th mission. In this ending, the Versis is critically damaged and most of her crew are killed, including Claire, which leaves Jake devastated in the credits. If player succeeds on the side missions, the Versis survives and Jake returns to the carrier, the war is over and Jake and Claire embrace each other on the Versis' deck.
The game received a port to the PlayStation 2 in 2004 in both Europe, Australia and Japan, under the title Assault Suits Valken. Cybernator was released on the Virtual Console in PAL regions on December 7, 2007, and in North America on December 17, 2007, both for the Wii and in North America on August 7, 2014 and in PAL regions on February 26, 2015, both for the Wii U.
