Videos: New Xenoblade Chronicles X Video Showcasing Exploration and Scale

In today’s Nintendo Direct, a new video was released for Xenoblade Chronicles X. Aside from confirming it will be released in 2015, the video showcased the scale and variety of the explorable world of Mira where you can traverse it either by foot or by mecha. It also provided a bit more background as to why they’ve crash landed on the foreign planet. Here’s to hoping we get much more new info regarding the types of mecha we can use in the game in future updates. Definitely check it out in video below to see it all in action.

News: Heavy Gear Assault Interview

Over at Joystiq they have an interview with Vince McMullin, a producer at Stompy Bot. If you remember, this was the studio that was making the new Heavy Gear Assault game for PC. Despite what they term as a crowdfunding “disaster”, though we think that’s a tad melodramatic in terms of analysis, it seems the game is still being made. So much so that we have some alpha build footage available (shown below).

Now this is using Unreal Engine 4 and I don’t want to be overly unkind, as this is an alpha build, but the game looks like total arse. Art fidelity aside, games like Project HON are clearly doing more functionally than this is. Even the already available Armored Core V and Verdict Day are more engaging than what this looks to be like.

We may be jumping the gun a bit but from what we’re seeing, it doesn’t look that great to play. Though we’ll reserve judgement until the game is finally released and hopefully by then they will have pushed the engine a bit more too.

News: Super Robot Wars Z 3 Tengoku-hen Announced

Following on from the excellent Jigoku-hen released earlier this year, Bandai Namco announced Super Robot Wars Z 3 Tengoku-hen to be released on both PS3 and Vita next April. To accompany this announcement we’ve also been graced with a nice long promo video (shown below). In it we see new series like Gargantia and Gunbuster 2 are now included in the game’s roster but we are still blown away by how crazy nice the Zeta Gundam animations still are. Orguss is also back (as seen above) and that’s just great in and of itself really. The lack of Final Dancouga is somewhat saddening though.

In addition to the main game, for those that buy Tengoku-hen at launch they will also get a separate downloadable sidestory game called Rengoku-hen. This features characters from previous Super Robot Wars Z instalments over 15 unique missions. Most importantly of all, this won’t be available as a separate download at any point.

News: Gunhound EX on sale at the Steam store

Dracue’s great little homage to 90s side scrolling mecha shoot-em-ups, Gunhound EX, is now on sale over at the Steam store. With a whopping 80% discount in effect, you’d be crazy not to pick this up. This is actually the PSP game that was released a while back but the game works fine on PC (as originally Gunhound was a PC game anyway). We will get around to reviewing these games though, we promise. In the meantime, buy this little beauty. It really is a great little game!

News: From Software Media Event Update

So there was a recent press event hosted by Kadokawa Games and From Software, with people like Hidetaka Miyazaki (shown above) present. As we reported a while back, we were told a new game would be announced at this event. Now some games were announced but the bad news is that none of them were Armored Core or anything mecha related. This doesn’t mean that the studio isn’t making mecha games anymore but that there are no official announcements of games to that effect. This isn’t overly surprising as Bloodborne is a massive game and it’s clear the bulk of the studio, if not all, are working on it to get the game done in time for its March release next year. However, Kadokawa is known in Japan for ruining studios (what happened to Prope, Yuji Naka’s studio, is fairly standard behaviour on their part). The Souls series was already in development when the Kadokawa acquisition happened, so once all those are released next year it will be interesting to see what happens to From Software. In the meantime, we hope they can get Bloodborne done on time.

To sweeten the deal for newer players buying Gundam Breaker 2 on release, Bandai have thrown in an incentive. For first time buyers of the game, they will be given a code for the new BG-011B Build Burning Gundam from Gundam Build Fighters Try (shown below). This means players will be able to use this unit’s parts to create their own version, as is the way with the Gundam Breaker games. The game is set for a December 18th release and you can pre-order it here.

News: NCSoft Announces Project HON

At the current G-Star 2014 show in Korea, it seems that NCSoft has announced a new mecha TPS game called Project HON. This looks to be quite similar in functionality to Armored Core V and Verdict Day and is also using Unreal Engine 4. Previously, NCSoft has made only fantasy styled MMOs with human scaled characters. They currently have no experience making any form of mecha TPS game but from what we have seen it looks they might be able to pull it off.

Update: Added new footage and modified above text.

Following up from the reveal that parts can be upgraded in Gundam Breaker 2 we now have more details on what that will look like in game. The main thrust is that weapons will acquire special type attacks depending on the type and upgrade, as well various stat increases. In addition, weapons are directly forged in this manner and the upgrades are a continuation of that. Again, considering how complex the customisation already was in the first game this seems a tad excessive. We’ll see once the game is released we suppose. The game is set for a December 18th release and you can pre-order it here.

We’ve known about Project Nimbus for a good while but have not really been covering it. Partly because most Kickstarters don’t amount to much but also we weren’t sure about it either. However, as of November 5th the game will be available via Early Access on Steam. This will include the first four story chapters among other things. Now we’re not a fan of Early Access on principle, as really games should only be released once they are finished, but we’re happy to see that these guys have managed to get this far. In any case, the game looks to be very much inspired by the likes of Armored Core For Answer and is also aerial based. If you are at all curious then the early access trailer is shown below.
