macross_delta_scramble_new

Macross Delta Scramble is finally released on the Vita in Japan today. This is a continuation of Studio Artdink’s solid Macross games on PSP, as well as their PS3 game Macross 30. From what I’ve played of the game thus far, it is more inline with their older PSP games and is much faster paced as well as more functionally immediate compared to Macross 30. It also looks surprisingly good for a Vita game and runs very smoothly. I can only hope this will be the start of a new series of Vita based Macross games by the studio. With any luck, I’ll get around to reviewing Macross Delta Scramble in the next few weeks. You can import the game here.

Bandai has released more photos of Metal Build F91 Gundam, from the Gundam movie of the same name, which is planned to be released early next year. This figure first appeared at the 56th All Japan Model Hobby Show and has generated lots of buzz among gunpla enthusiasts who want this (like me). The above image is my favorite from the set. Until then, I’ll keep you posted with any updates!

News: Gundam Versus (PS4) English Version Announced for Asia

Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia have recently announced that an English version of the newly revealed Gundam Versus will be headed to South East Asian territories. To be more specific, the game will have the original Japanese VAs but use English subtitles, similar to localized version of Gundam EXVS Force for the Vita. As we know the latest title eventually was western-bound, this news does solidify the hope that the newest PS4 title will also head to Western territories. No other details were shared, but hopefully we hear more about the closed alpha test Bandai Namco mentioned during TGS 2016. Until then, we’ll keep you posted when further news hits!

News: Gundam Versus Closed Alpha Announced at TGS 2016, Full Release Slated for Late 2017

During the TGS 2016 Gundam Games 15th Anniversary panel, Gundam Versus producer Ryuichiro Baba announced the upcoming PS4 title will be getting a closed alpha test soon. They will be releasing more information about how to participate  in the near future through their official twitter page. What we do know is that it will be a local-only affair, so we’re going to have to wait a bit longer to get our online battling on. Whether or not the alpha is limited to just JP PSN accounts is another unknown as well.

Baba also mentioned that he’s looking to differentiate the console experience from what we know from previous arcade-derived titles, on top of wanting a worldwide audience to get into the 2v2 gameplay the Gundam VS series is known for. As to how the difference will be between the arcade and console experiences is still yet to be determined. Considering their last forays in bringing 2v2 gameplay to the West (Rise of Incarnates, Gundam Extreme VS Force) haven’t exactly garnered the greatest of praise from the hardcore Gundam VS fans, it will be interesting to see what they consider.

Needless to say, we won’t be seeing this game released until after the 1st half of 2017. During the panel, Amuro Ray VA Tohru Furuya tried his best to get a solid release date from Baba, but was met with a possible Autumn release for next year. This also coincides with a recent Famitsu Magazine article that mentions the game is only 30% complete and the game is using a brand new engine dubbed the “Nu Library.” This engine is being worked on by Julien Merceron, the former worldwide technology director and architect of the Fox Engine at Konami. At the very least, this game is going to look amazing.

As always, we’all keep you up to date on the closed alpha and other information on the game as it drops!

Console-only Gundam VS fans rejoice as the 5th generation of the series has been announced at the 2016 Tokyo Game Show! Named simply “Gundam Versus,” this new game makes its debut only on the Playstation 4 and is apparently a clean break from the EXVS series. You’ll still get the 2v2 team battle action the series is best known for, but not much is known outside of that currently. From a previous interview with the Gundam VS team at Bandai Namco, they’re also looking heavily into a worldwide release. As the Tokyo Game Show just started, we expect to hear more features from the title and hopefully a release date to follow. From the announcement trailer below,  you’ll see the RX-78-2, Gundam Barbatos, Full Armor Gundam (Thunderbolt), Gundam Unicorn, and Gundam Exia in action with a brand new sheen to their visuals. Check it out!

English speaking G Generation fans rejoice as the English-subtitled version of the new G Generation Genesis game is launching on November 22, 2016 in Asia. Recently announced prior to the 2016 Tokyo Game Show, this will be the next Gundam game to get the English translated treatment like the previous Gundam Extreme VS Force and Gundam Breaker 3. The one thing we don’t know is whether or not the game will be officially released on Western shores as Gundam Breaker 3 still does not have one. What we do know is that the game will feature over 650 mobile suits spawning from Gundam’s long history of animated, manga, and G Generation in-universe titles. Until we learn more, check out footage from a recent gameplay livestream by Bandai Namco below!

The previously released Assault Suits Leynos remake on PS4 is now finally released on PC, via Steam. The remake was developed by Dracue Software, the studio that also made the excellent Gunhound games. However, this remake of Leynos is a mixed bag and while not as bad as the PS2 update to Valken isn’t exactly great either. If you’re an ardent PC gamer then you might want to check out Gunhound EX before delving into this Leynos remake.

Gundam-EX-VS-Maxi-Boost-On-March-9-JP

It appears the next version of the Gundam VS series is currently in development! Thanks to some keen redditors, a recent Famitsu article has a provided a Q&A session with series producer Ryuichiro Baba and other staff members regarding the future of the Gundam VS series. They mention their understanding of Gundam EXVS Force’s misgivings with the fans and plan to address those issues in the latest installment. They also mention console specs and infrastructures are now ripe to take advantage of connecting players, and that possibly includes a more global focus. They also mention the new VS game as the 5th generation of Gundam VS, with EXVS series being the 4th. Perhaps we’ll hear more about this in the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, but this news definitely has us salivating while we continue to wait for a Maxi Boost console version.

valkyries_third_sortie

The latest and third installment in the Valkyries book series by Hidetaka Tenjin will be released this September in Japan. Like the first and second books, this one will contain new Macross related art by Tenjin featuring a variety of variable fighters from the series. This new book will also be fully bilingual and feature English text. Considering that Macross Delta is the latest series in the saga, it’s clear this new book will focus on this more readily but it will be interesting to see what other pieces of art turn up. Valkyries Third Sortie is released on September 14th in Japan by Kobunsha and you can pre-order it over on Amazon. In the meantime, make sure to check out my review of the second book.

News: VR Zone in Odaiba gets new Gundam attraction

Later this August, the VR Zone exhibit at Diver City in Tokyo will have a Gundam themed attraction added to its ranks. Called Gundam VR Daiba Assault, it’s based around the 18 meter tall Gundam outside Diver City coming to life and protecting you from an attack by a renegade Zaku II. As with all VR Zone events, you will need to reserve a slot to attend this new attraction. Like the amazing VOTOMS simulator, this too is using Unreal Engine 4 and I am curious as to how this will play out. Naturally, Bandai Namco called in Toru Furuya, the voice of Amuro Ray, to help promote the new attraction (shown below). So if you’re in Tokyo over the next month or so, you might want to go and check out the VR Zone at Diver City.
