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.

Well we’ve just had this year’s All Japan Model & Hobby Show and a lot of very cool stuff was revealed. Notably that of the Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam (shown above), which will have an internally lit psycho-frame. Considering it’s been a while since we had a PG kit, this is a rather a big deal. Following that we had all manner of toy reveals, with Megahouse’s Orguss tempting us with regular brilliance (come on, just release it already!). Then Bandai’s explosion of various new Robot Damashii figures, including the upcoming Metal Robot Damashii Hi-Nu Gundam. In any case, AmiAmi has a lot of great photos and our friends from HobbyLink.tv also went (we’ve linked their video below too). So if you want to see more, then have a look here, here, here, here and here.

News: From Software To Announce a New Game in November

Whilst this year’s Tokyo Game Show lacked any new From Software mecha games, it seems that we might be getting a new announcement in November. Whilst we don’t know for sure that this will be a new Armored Core game, considering the history of the studio it seems likely (or at least a new mecha game anyway). In addition, we may now also start to hear more announcements from other Japanese studios on new games in development. As a lot of stuff is currently being worked on it seems.

News: Tokyo Game Show 2014 Report

First off, apologies for the lack of updates. Things have been pretty bizarre as of late and have only just started to somewhat calm down. In addition, there aren’t that many mecha games to talk about at the moment – though more as to why a bit later. However, we did manage to make it to this year’s Tokyo Game Show and briefly hang out with the nice people at HobbyLink.tv.

Anyway, the console side of things is in a bit of a transition. Most publishers thought, incorrectly, that consoles were dead and as such didn’t bother to develop many games for the newer consoles. Cue the release of them last year and their crazy high sales, publishers freaked and started developing new games for them. The problem is that most big games take at least 2 years to get off the ground. We are halfway through that, so this year’s show was a little barren. It’s also why there aren’t many mecha games on the horizon, yet! This means stuff like Armored Core is very likely being worked on but isn’t quite in a state to be shown to the public at large.

We took lots of pictures though and we also helped out the HobbyLink.tv people, with the video of that shown below (I am the chunky British guy, obviously). The pictures and some gameplay impressions are after the link.

We recently reviewed the amazing Robot Damashii Full Armor ZZ Gundam over at Hobbylink.tv, this being the final version of the titular mobile suit as seen in ZZ Gundam. It’s an amazing figure though and whilst a webshop exclusive is worth getting. The detailing alone for a figure of this size is pretty fantastic really.
