shin_musou_us

In a slightly bizarre move, Bandai Namco in the US have decided to release Shin Gundam Musou as Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn this July. The bizarre part is that unlike the Japanese release last year, this will be a digital only release and then only for the PS3 (with the Vita version being ignored entirely). Compared to the previous Gundam Musou enties, the latest entry is somewhat of a disappointment and likely explains why the new US release is being slipped under the radar. In any case, the announcement trailer is shown below.

News: Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost DLC Update

zaku

Gundam.info has recently released news on next two units coming to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost for the PS3. They are Cucuruz Doan’s Zaku II (1000 cost) and Anavel Gato’s Gelgoog (2000 cost). Doan’s Zaku II, from the Doan’s Island episode of Mobile Suit Gundam, is one of the genuinely “new” additions to the roster as it is neither a pilot swap or reshuffled suit, similar to the GNXIII. True to the episode it hails from, Doan’s Zaku II fights throwing rocks and using mobile suit martial arts with Amuro’s core fighter assist. Gato’s Gelgoog, from the beginning of Stardust Memory, differs from Char’s Gelgoog by having a single shot charge shot attack, a Rick Dom assist instead of Lalah’s Elmeth, and a halberd throw. Each of these units will cost 381 yen before tax. Here’s to hoping we see more DLC down the line after this bunch is released, preferably brand new units this time!

hexa

Are you ready for more clone DLC? 4gamer has released information on the next two DLC units to hit Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost on April 2, Elle Viano’s Gundam MkII and Marbet’s V Gundam Hexa. Both units are of the 1000 cost tier and will cost the usual 400 yen. In regards to gameplay differences… well the Hexa looks to be an exact moveset copy of the existing Victory Gundam whereas Elle’s MkII ┬áis more long range oriented with the Hyaku Shiki and Zeta Zaku for assists vs Kamille’s melee oriented MkII moveset. With this release, it appears there will be two more units left to appear. One can hope for more DLC units in the near future, specifically brand new units that don’t necessarily have to be of the Maxi Boost fare.

srwz3_burglarydog

What with the release of Super Robot Wars Z 3 only a few weeks away, we’re very glad to see the likes of the mighty ATM-09-DD Burglary Dog from Shining Heresy being finally shown. The other aspects to this update are that we have another confirmation for the final universe spanning forms of Gurren Lagann being playable and that the Sazabi looks pretty damn boss. We’re still put out about the lack of Final Dancouga but this still looks to be a great game and one we’re very much looking forward to. The game is still on track for its April 10th release and you can pre-order it accordingly here (PS3) and here (Vita).

News: Assault Suits Valken Developer Interview

valken_interview1

Occasionally you get to see something wonderful in terms of gaming history. In this instance it’s an interview from the early 90’s with the team behind Assault Suits Valken that has been recently translated (made all the more brilliant by lovely scans of Satoshi Urushihara’s artwork for the game). Originally in a guidebook for the game, it covers all sorts of fascinating aspects about this classic game. If you have never played Valken, then avoid the dire PS2 port and instead avail yourself of the Virtual Console release. Thanks to GSK for the heads up.

zakuzeta

Gundam.info has released new information on the upcoming DLC units to hit Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost on March 19th. The following units will be added to the roster: Zaku Zeta (1000 cost), Poe Aijee’s Sumo (2000 cost), and Andrew Waltfield’s Gaia Gundam (2000 cost). Like previous DLCs, these units are modified from existing versions already in game with slightly different attacks and EX Burst Attacks. At first glance, it looks like Poe’s Sumo appears to be a straight clone of Gold Sumo aside from less ammo, whereas Waltfield’s Gaia seems to have interesting changes versus Stella’s unit. Most of his attacks transform him into the dog mobile armor mode and has no manual transform and is more melee focused, whereas you’d have to manually switch into the MA form with Stella’s Gaia. How this will change gameplay is yet to be determined, but we’ll find out next week. I am glad to see Zaku Zeta show up in playable form as it has always cracked me up at its existence. Each unit will cost 400 yen each.

gbo_million

So in less than two years, the freemium Gundam Battle Operation has now reached 1 million downloads. Most of these gamers being middle aged guys apparently, which is actually different for other games and aspects of the Gundam franchise (as in Japan it’s about a 50/50 split between men and women). That aside, we’ve played this again since we got back to Japan and it does play better, as the crazy amazing net connections here mean you don’t suffer from lag or the horrible framerate issues I saw when I played it in the UK. It’s still pretty awful though. Anyway, a million downloads. Wooo!

News: Assault Suit Leynos on PlayStation 4

leynos_original1

If you remember those nice people at Dracue, of Gunhound fame, well they are taking the next step by releasing a port of the classic Assault Suit Leynos on PS4. Announced at this year’s BitSummit, this new port will pool on the talents of Toru Yoshida (of VOTOMS fame) and Hyakutaro Tsukumo, who also co-composed the score for Gunhound. This doesn’t look like a simple update to Leynos either, but a full blown functional reboot in the style of Gunhound. Whilst we’re not too happy about that, Gunhound was good and Dracue gets the material they’re riffing off. We can only hope they’ll move onto Valken at some point too. The trailer for the new port is shown below.

gigantic_army_steam1

For those that have been a reader on this site for a while, you’ll remember we talked about Gigantic Army a good while back. Well, due to Nyu Media we now have the game on Steam. Thankfully the developer Astro Port are still involved and it seems to be more of a new means of distributing the game rather than anything else untoward. In any case the game only costs $5.99, so what the hell are you waiting for? Buy this now it’s just fucking great!

News: Gundam Side Stories Screenshot Update

gundam_bd_new1

Over at 4Gamer we have a new update on the forthcoming Gundam Side Stories collection of games. First though, let’s talk about the above screenshot. As it basically shows the Blue Destiny GM kicking the Efreet Kai, now this is not something that really happened in the original games and is another instance where it seems the “remake” is deviating from the host material. We only hope that the other games in the collection are more faithful functionally speaking. That aside, in addition to the main games there will also be a VR mission mode that allows you to build a custom team of mobile suits. This gives credence to our theory that the games would crossover in terms of units somehow. It also harks back to the Tactics Battle mode we saw in Journey to Jaburo (which was pretty much the best part of the game and in turn created the setup seen in Lost War Chronicles, which is also getting remade in this collection). Bar that we also now have some nice shots of the RX-80 Pale Rider, the unique mobile suit that has been introduced for the game. The game is still on course for its May 29th release and you can pre-order the standard edition here.
