What with a veritable Layzner bonanza happening as of late, Wave have revealed that they’ll be releasing a garage kit of the formidable SPT-ZK-53U Zakarl. At 47,250 yen it won’t be cheap and pre-orders will start this December, for a release in February of next year. This is a separate release to Bandai’s teaser of another toy.

News: Armored Core Verdict Day Region Free?

In a recent Q&A with Bandai Namco Europe’s Anthony Grabit it was said that Armored Core Verdict Day “is not region locked”. Whether this is specific to the European release or, far more importantly, the international servers is by no means clear at this point. However, what with the game’s release imminent (today in the US, the 26th in Japan and 27th in Europe) we’ll know for sure soon enough. Our review will be of the Japanese versions if anyone is wondering. You can still pre-order the game here (PS3) and here (360).

Videos: Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle Promo

What with this year’s Tokyo Game Show over, there are all manner of new things flying around. Some of these are to do with the upcoming Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle brawler out on November 28th. The new promo (shown below) pretty much covers the same ground as the first and emphasises the fact that the game aint a looker. We’re also somewhat concerned at how the various mecha are moving, as our mecha sense is tingling somewhat. To be more specific, the game looks damn unwieldy but until we get to play it we won’t know for sure. Again, the fact that this is an in-house job does worry us. Especially as Banpresto’s track record with mecha action games is sketchy at best. In addition, there’s also a new Dark Prison promo too. Don’t forget that you can pre-order the game here.

Toys: Arcadia YF-19 Pricing Details

We now know that the new 1/60 scale YF-19 by Arcadia will be released in April 2014 for the eye watering price of 32,800 yen. Admittedly this isn’t just a re-release of Yamato’s old 1/60 toy but all new and based off the engineering used in the Fire Valkyrie toy. It also comes with a lot of extra missiles and the FAST packs seen towards the end of Macross Plus. Still, the price is a lot more than we were expecting. No wonder Yamato went bankrupt!

Following on from the Virtual On Memorial Event we mentioned, 4Gamer have a nice breakdown piece. Despite the appearance of peeps from Volks and Haseagawa regarding all manner of kits, the interesting stuff came from Mori Yasuhiro (a designer at Sega who worked on both Marz and Oratan, he’s also the guy wearing the Tangram t-shirt in the above picture). Notably that there may be a new Virtual On game surfacing during the series’ 20th Anniversary in 2015. Now, this isn’t the first time this has been said but we do know that since Force there have been multiple attempts at making a new Virtual On game (with Border Break being the unwitting results of one of those attempts). Anyway, we hope that whatever is planned finally sees the light of day (preferably if it’s an arcade game too obviously).

The fifth episode for Super Robot Wars Operation Extend is now out. If you’ve already bought the combined pack then you can download it for free, otherwise you’ll pay 1000 yen. Thus far we’ve been having mixed feelings about the game, on the one hand the roster and radial movement is great but the ill-placed freemium nonsense is really damn annoying. That said, we are still having fun with the game. The next episode is released on the 26th and it seems that we’ll get to play with the Sirbine too!
