News: Crossbone Gundam X-3 added to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost

On July 23, the XM-X3 Crossbone Gundam X-3 will join the Gundam Versus Extreme Full Boost roster after winning the mobile event against the Gerbera Tetra just recently. The final Crossbone Gundam unit in the original Crossbone trio, the Crossbone Gundam X-3 is a 2500 cost suit and is very melee oriented as expected. Equipped with its Muramasa Blaster, as seen with the Crossbone Full Cloth, the X-3 has very quick striking melee that can be powered up with its safety release. Other attacks include a nice little whirlwind throw with the EMS-VSX1 Quarvarze, burning tree logs, and the lovely nuke found with the Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai. To make up for not being equipped with the iconic ABC mantle, the X-3 also has a very quick approach move with the I-Field, blocking all beam like projectiles for a certain period of time. My only gripe with the suit so far is the fact that while it can throw burning logs, it does not have the infamous monkey controlled mobile suit as an assist. Regardless, it’s still very exciting to see it added to the roster! Cecily Fairchild will also be added as an operator as well. Check out the little gameplay teaser for the X-3 below!

News: Yoji Shinkawa does Poster Art for Pacific Rim’s Japanese Release

With Pacific Rim ramping up to release on July 12th in the west, Hideo Kojima recently tweeted a collaboration with Guillermo Del Toro and famed artist Yoji Shinkawa on the Japanese Pacific Rim movie poster. The titular mecha Gipsy Danger is given the Shinkawa makeover, with slick lines and a slim profile with its blades protracted over what looks like a defeated Knifehead kaiju. Hopefully this will be a collaboration that will spark more mecha-themed games from Kojima such as the long awaited Zone of the Enders 3 as he has been giving Pacific Rim nothing but high praises. Until then, check out the latest Pacific Rim trailer below!

News: Character Battle and Unit Adjustments to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost

Looks like a couple big updates will be on the way for Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost in the upcoming weeks. The first update is a major unit readjustment that affects around 32 current units, ranging from increased main ammo for Cherudim to several new cancels for many units . This update is included in the June 25th update that introduces the Kapools as playable units. The next update is the Character Battle between the X-3 Crossbone Gundam and the Gerbera Tetra. Like previous Character Battles, they will be voted on through the mobile site and whoever wins will be added in the next game update, which is July 15th. The loser will move onto the next Character Battle and await the results of that round. Until then, check out the video below and see some of the new unit updates in action!

News: Kapools added to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost

kapool

On June 25, the Kapool and Corin’s Kapool will be added to the Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost roster. Teased in the game’s intro since it was released over a year ago, the AMX–109 Kapool and Corin’s Kapool seem to be one of the most unique units out there. Acting as one selected unit, the player will be able to switch between the two units during the match. Corin’s Kapool appears to be more melee focused, whereas the Kapool, piloted by Sochie Heim, is more ranged. Each unit has its own health, but beware as one unit death means both Kapools go down. Regardless, we are definitely looking forward to playing the Kapools sometime soon. Other additions in the next update include Lunamaria Hawke from Gundam Seed Destiny as an operator and A Bao A Qu as a new playable stage. Check out the video below to see Team Kapool in action!

Videos: New Trailer Released for Monolithsoft’s Mecha Wii U RPG

At the recent Nintendo E3 Direct, a new trailer was shown for the new Wii U RPG by Monolithsoft, currently dubbed “X”. This new trailer focuses on the mecha featured in the game, called Dolls, and showcased more of their functionality in the game, from different forms of traversal and mecha types. As a spiritual successor to Xenoblade, the scope and scale of this game looks amazing from the large vistas to the giant enemies, both organic and mechanical. As a huge fan of the Xeno-series RPGs and Xenoblade, I can’t wait to see what this game has in store for us in the future. The game will be released in 2014, but until then make sure to check out the trailer below!

Toys: Robot Damashii Divine Testament Gundam Revealed

Looks like Gundam Seed Astray is getting a little more love in the form of the Robot Damashii ZGMF-X12A+AQM/E-X05 Divine Testament Gundam. From the Gundam Seed Destiny Astray manga, the Testament Gundam with its Divine Striker armaments is a fearsome antagonist mecha that is eventually repurposed for Kaite Madigan’s usage, one of the leads in Destiny Astray manga. In the manga, it also is able to attach other Striker packs such as the Sword and Aile packs designed for the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam, so it would be interesting to see if that applied to the Robot Damashii version. As for speculation time, could this be another hint into upcoming roster additions to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost? The Divine Testament Gundam is scheduled for release in September of this year.

dogfight

It’s that time of the year again where the top players from all over Japan come together to see who’s the best Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost player in the country! The Premium Dogfight 2013 tournament will take place on May 25th and be held at the Differ Ariake Arena in Tokyo. Last year, we saw a team of Tallgeese III/00 Qan[T] barely eek out a victory against a Zaku II FZ/Hildolfr team in the finals. It will be interesting to see what kind of matchups will be in store for this year’s tournament. Perhaps we might get some news about a possible home version of the game or even an upcoming sequel! Just because you may not be able to see the event in Japan, does not mean you cannot watch it live. Streaming info can be found on the Full Boost website here. Until then, watch some of the 2013 Tokyo qualifiers in the video below!

Video: Crossbone Gundam Fanmade Animation

crossbone

A YouTube user by the name of wipp er has uploaded an impressive fanmade anime intro for Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam. Written by Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino and drawn by Yuichi Hasegawa, the Crossbone Gundam manga series spans several series (Crossbone Gundam, Skull Heart, Steel Seven and Ghost) and is a direct sequel to Gundam F91 and pseudo prequel to Victory Gundam. The series has spawned some very iconic mobile suits, designed by Hajime Katoki, that have graced several video games such as the Super Robot Wars Alpha series on the PS2, Another Century’s Episode R for the PS3, the G Generation series on various consoles and of course Gundam Extreme Versus for the PS3 and its arcade sequel Full Boost.

It has taken the creator of this animation around two years to complete and arguably has done a fantastic job capturing both Hasegawa’s character designs and Hajime Katoki’s mechanical designs in an animated form. If this video doesn’t get your mouth watering for some animated Crossbone Gundam goodness, I don’t know what will.
