News: Galak-Z Gameplay from PAX 2013

Indie developer 17bit is very much hitting the nostalgia buttons with their upcoming game 2D sidescrolling shoot-em-up, Galak-Z: The Dimensional. Coming to the PS4 and PC in 2014, the Macross/Gundam/Space Battleship Yamato-inspired game has the player controlling a lone spaceship (which reminds me a bit of Hikaru Ichijo’s FanJet) against a horde of enemies, including some large mecha and aliens, through asteroid riddled areas. While it doesn’t seem as if you can transform into a mecha and vice versa, your missile attacks are very reminiscent of the well loved “Itano Circus,” on top of performing rather appealing dodging maneuvers hearkening stylistic anime action. Check out the recently released PAX 2013 trailer and Kotaku developer interview below!

News: Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle Announced

In a somewhat worrying move, Banpresto have announced Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle. This will be an arena based action game in a similar vein to that of Gundam Extreme Versus, except that this won’t be made by Byking. Instead, this is an in-house affair and the last time Banpresto tried to do an arena based action game themselves it didn’t go too well. Following on from this, there will also be a tie-in DLC called Dark Prison for OG2 if you buy Infinite Battle (though this will be released separately at a later date as well). This bundle of gaming joy will be released on November 28th for 7,480 yen and is a PS3 exclusive. If you’re curious to see more, then Famitsu has a nice piece on the game.

News: Decimal Kickstarter

There’s a new mecha themed action RTS needing support, called Decimal it has just started its own Kickstarter to get development funds (specifically that of half a million dollars, which is ambitious to say the least!). The art style and concept art are very fresh, we also seriously approve of their approach to the game’s mecha design. The studio, Orb Interactive, is a recently formed entity and its staff have a pretty textured background. We’ve linked the promotional video below and this looks like something we could happily support.

News: Gundam Breaker Vita Version Details

Now that the PS3 version of Gundam Breaker is out, Bandai have announced when the Vita version will hit. Out on October 31st, the Vita version will feature new units (such as the ZZ Gundam and Crossbone Gundam X-1 amongst others). Don’t worry though, as these new units will also be made available in the PS3 version (free of charge) in a forthcoming game update. That said, the Vita version will exclusively get a mass produced Gundam and Zaku set (so you’re not missing much). Sadly, the Vita release won’t have infrastructure multiplayer, instead opting only for ad-hoc. That said, you will be able to transfer your save data between both the PS3 and Vita releases. You’ll also be able to buy both boxed and downloadable versions of the game, at 6,980 yen and 6,280 yen respectively. You can pre-order the boxed version here.

After losing the mobile contest against the Crossbone X-3, the next suit to be added to the Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost roster on August 27 will be the Gerbera Tetra, piloted by Cima Garahau. Completing the Stardust Memory mobile suit crew, the Gerbera Tetra is a 2000 cost mobile suit that looks to be rather nimble.

After much wait, Masou Kishin III is now out and about. We’ve ordered our copy and a review will hopefully be forthcoming once we’re done with it. We’re genuinely hopeful that this entry will be rather special, as the previous games in the series have been very good indeed. Fingers crossed that winkysoft are still behind this too obviously. In the meantime, feel free to order either (region free) versions of the game here (PS3) or here (Vita).

The third 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. In addition, you can also buy Cybuster from the Masou Kishin games for a very reasonable 200 yen. This update is also very Gundam heavy too, featuring Gundam 0080 to Wing and 00.

News: Ichiro Itano in Bike Accident

The legendary animator Ichiro Itano was involved in a bike accident recently. Quickly hospitalized he appears to be okay but obviously we’re concerned for his well being. The above picture was an impromptu “get well soon” card of sorts from other anime luminaries. For those unaware of Itano’s work, he’s one of the foremost mecha choreographers out there and his signature missile flourish, the Itano Circus, has graced pretty much every Macross series to date. We’ve linked a video below of his greatest hits in case you’re at all curious about Itano’s creative output. Despite his prodigious animation work, his influence has had a palpable effect on gaming too. That aside, our thoughts are with him as well as his friends and family. Naturally, we hope he makes a speedy recovery.

There will be an Armored Core Convention held on the 7th September in Washington DC. Apparently LAN games will be supported as well as the chance to win Armored Core figures (plus the opportunity to drink booze). The convention also marks the series’ 16th birthday, which is nice. More details will be forthcoming closer to the time but you can go to the Facebook page to show your support and interest. Talking of Armored Core, there’s a pretty interesting interview over at 4Gamer about Verdict Day.

As many of you already know, a patch for the PS3 version of Zone of the Enders HD Edition has finally been released. This specifically covers the Anubis portion of the collection in case you’re wondering. Whilst this does improve the game noticeably it’s still not as good as the PS2 original, so in that sense our review of the collection will stand as is (as the 360 version remains unchanged as does the original game). However the studio behind the PS3 patch, that of the indomitable Hexadrive, have written a fantastically detailed post on all the improvements they made. It really begs the question why they weren’t hired in the first place for the port. There are also some great comparison videos too, so those are worth a watch. All in all though, it’s still sad to think that possibly the last ever release of Zone of the Enders was handled so badly.
