Famitsu has a nice little piece on the upcoming Assault Suit Leynos port for PS4, as it was apparently present at this year’s Bit Summit in Kyoto. The main news is that the game’s release has been delayed until May next year and it looks like the game will feature co-op play as well. In addition to this, Dracue released some new gameplay videos yesterday (shown below). If we’re honest, the game doesn’t look very good. Admittedly it’s not as bad as the PS2 Valken port (that was terrible) but for a modern 2D game on PS4 this looks decidedly amateurish.

News: Chikyuu Boueigun 4.1 Release Date

The upcoming PS4 game, Chikyuu Boueigun 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair, has finally been given a release date; that of February next year. We got to play the game at this year’s TGS and it was pretty good, despite a rather erratic framerate. The mecha in the shot is called the Balam and is referred to as a “walking fortress”. We’re hoping Sandlot will be able to do a decent optimisation pass before the game is released, as having a shoddy framerate on a PS4 is a bit bizarre really. If you’re curious about Sandlot’s mecha game output over the years then check out our feature on that very subject.

It’s rare to have an entire kit be an actual spoiler but this is what we have here. Specifically this kit is the AC that Blue Magnolia uses towards the end of Armored Core Verdict Day. Without going into too much detail, this ties into the game’s plot in a big way (if you don’t mind spoilers then check out the video below). In any case, this is part of Kotobukiya’s ongoing Variable Infinity line of kits and is set for release in February of next year for 7,800 yen. Like their other kits this looks pretty magnificent and the detailing is spot-on too.

In a recent update covering the forthcoming Gundam Breaker 2, we get to see all manner of new bosses. Such as the Adrastrea from Victory Gundam (as shown above). Bandai also released a new promo and this was the one shown at TGS, that displayed the depth and breadth of the customisation within the game. That’s shown below in case you’re curious. The game is set for a December 18th release and you can pre-order it here.

In a surprising turn of events, it looks like Right Stuf have brokered a deal with Sunrise to bring Gundam to the West. The first series of which being Turn A Gundam, that already had its Western release cancelled a while back. All in all this is fantastic news, as it finally means that Gundam can be released commercially again in the West. Hopefully Right Stuf will handle the Gundam mythos better than those before it.

Over at HobbyLink.tv we’ve reviewed the recent webshop exclusive Soul of Chogokin Spec Layzner Mark II. It’s a glorious good toy and likely the nicest one we’ll ever get of the design. So check it out!

Also over the next few days we’ll be posting a few more toy reviews here. Lots of new Robot Damashii goodness. We’re also aware we’ve been a bit quiet as of late. That’s mainly because we’re in a release lull for mecha games. Once things kick off again we’ll still be here, so don’t worry!

We’ve now got some more bits and bobs on the upcoming Gundam Breaker 2. Notably that you can square off against battleships now, which is pretty great, as well as the ability to use the FXA-08R Mega Rider from ZZ Gundam. Bar new units and characters, the big new stuff we thought we should mention is that the game engine has had a decent amount of work done on it. It’s clear that Bandai have put a bit more budget behind this one. The game is set for a December 18th release and you can pre-order it here.
