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.

News: Zone of the Enders HD Edition Patch Breakdown

zoe_hd_ps3_patch1

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.

Firebase Industries have announced a new game project, called Moonlight, that features a transforming mecha (as shown above) and very much ties into classic arcade shooters. The Beethoven infused promo video (shown below) looks very promising indeed too. No word on price or platforms as yet but we’re definitely curious to see how this turns out.

The second episode for Super Robot Wars Operation Extend is now out. If you’ve already bought the combined pack that you can download it for free, otherwise you’ll pay 200 yen. More units will be added to the roster, featuring that of Gurren Lagann. We’ve been enjoying the game thus far but without the freemium booster (which we bought) the game would be a motherless grind and in places probably quite unfair. Once all the episodes have been released we’ll likely review the game but thus far it’s pretty good.

Now with Wonder Festival 2013 Summer behind us, we have all manner of interesting reveals to ponder. From a fantastic Giant Gorg toy to the announcement of a new and brilliant looking Getter Robo series (with the toys shown above), it’s all been quite eventful. Especially as Arcadia showed their new 1/60 YF-19 toy and it’s clear that this is indeed using much of the new engineering seen in Yamato’s Fire Valkyrie. This alone is fantastic news. As always, AmiAmi has a nice selection of coverage here, here, here and here. Even more coverage is nicely collated here as well.

There’s an interesting little game that allows you to play with with a VF-11 Thunderbolt via Oculus Rift. Admittedly you just shoot down drones but it looks pretty nifty. The first person view from the head of the battroid does look a bit strange though. In any case, there’s also a similar little browser game available here too (via Unity). The video below shows the Oculus Rift version in action and starts around the 11 minute mark
