The official Armored Core V site has been updated with a new section on the recently announced order matches for the singleplayer as well as a slew of very sexy new screenshots. To clarify on how awesome the singleplayer is looking for the game, check out some Gamescom footage (in HD no less) below.

Kits: Blaster kit announced

Along with a slew of other kits at the 51st All Japan Model & Hobby Show, with the Nineball still being suitably lovely, the awesome Blaster from Super Robot Wars Z 2 Hakai Hen will finally get a kit based rendition. This is also being handled Kotobukiya, so expected highly affordable sculpted awesomeness. In terms of price, no details as yet but it’s scheduled for release sometime next year (probably to coincide with the second PSP game on the way).

News: Armored Core V Extra Missions Update

4Gamer has a follow on piece for Armored Core V regarding the reveal of the Moonlight and Karasawa. It seems that the huge MT-esque enemy “TypeD No.5” (shown above) will be part of an extra mission framework. Where four players, minus an operator, will square off against particularly difficult enemies. The update also shows some new areas as well as various turret types used for territory defense.

Updated: Famitsu has also a pretty nifty update about the game’s Order Matches.

News: Gundam AGE game announced

What with the first episode of Level 5’s Gundam AGE airing last night, it was shortly followed by a not overly surprising announcement; that a PSP game will accompany the series. Set for release next year, it will be an RPG that covers a 100 years of history within the new universe. Considering this is Level 5 we’re talking about, this game obviously won’t be a crappy hack job. In addition, after the likes of the excellent Danball Senki, it’s clear they can get a lot out of the PSP too. The announcement advert is below and it also shows a bit of in-game footage, something that doesn’t look too shabby either.

News: Transformers Fall of Cybertron Announced

Over at GameInformer they’ve revealed that following on from the successful War for Cybertron made by High Moon studios they’ll be another game in the series; entitled Fall of Cybetron. Whilst there’s a lot of positive comments about this announcement, people seem to have forgotten that High Moon also helmed the latest film tie-in Transformers game, Dark of the Moon (which was pretty horrid to be fair). That said, we are glad that High Moon are being given more of a free reign again. The game will be released at the end of next year.

4Gamer has a piece on the console port of Gundam Extreme Versus and its all new game modes. From a new “Trial Mission” setup, where you can clearly face off against Crux Dogatie in the skeletal EMA-10 Divinidad (shown above). In addition, the limited release XM-X1 (F97) Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai Kai “Skull Heart” in the arcade edition appears to be a fully accessible unit in the console port (as also shown above). Following on from that there are two confirmed PS3 exclusive mobile suits in the game, that of the GN-002 Gundam Dynames and the MBF-P03 Gundam Astray Blue Frame 2nd L. You can still pre-order the game here.

News: SD Gundam Generation 3D Update

As announced at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, SD Gundam Generation 3D is still on track for its December 22nd release date. The official site has also been kept up to date, with the new “Archive” section showing off the roster of series the game will feature. Of note are the addition of the upcoming Gundam AGE and Gunpla Builders. Much like the Super Robot Wars games, this series is unsurprisingly solely focused on Gundam. In all honesty, we’re not overly fond of the SD Gundam games but this does look suitably nice and since playing through Gundam The 3D Battle we have a hankering for some more 3D Gundam gaming.

News: Crossbone Gundam Full Cloth added to Gundam Extreme Versus

Slightly different from usual, GameWatch has a piece on the addition of two new mobile suits to the arcade version of Gundam Extreme Versus. Specifically that of the CB-002 Raphael Gundam from the Gundam 00 movie Awakening of the Trailblazer and the XM-X1 (F97) Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai Kai “Skull Heart” (in Full Cloth garb) from the extended Crossbone Gundam manga Skullheart and Steel 7. The update is different in the sense that these mobile suits aren’t permanent entries but will only be available from September 28th to October 17th. This is all part of a cunning plan to help promote a large tournament as well as the upcoming release of the PS3 port in December (the latter you can still pre-order here). Whether both units will be present in the port remains to be seen but it’s likely they’ll be included in some form.

News: Karasawa and Moonlight now in Armored Core V

In a piece over at Famitsu, it’s finally been shown that both the Karasawa laser rifle and Moonlight laser sword are present in the upcoming Armored Core V. The Karasawa is a long-standing series tradition, named after Yasuyoshi Karasawa who acted as producer on the first three PSone games. This version is slightly different though as it has a charge shot setup. As for the Moonlight, it has been present in every From Software game to date, after it originated in the first ever King’s Field. The new Moonlight also has a nice crescent shape too, which is pretty cool. Separately, there’s a picture of a new massive mecha called “TypeD No.5”, which appears to be a tad Arms Fort-esque. Historically both the Karasawa and Moonlight have been hidden unlocks but it’s nice to know that they are present and correct in the new game though.

Gigazine has a lovely piece on From Software’s recent Game Festa 2011. Considering neither Dark Souls or Armored Core V were present at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, From Software decided to hold their own event in a nearby hotel to Makuhari Messe. Amongst the various events and hands on demos, a new record label was also announced with a new Armored Core album performed by an in-studio band set for release this November. However, the most important piece of information released at the event was the finalised (Japanese) release date for Armored Core V, which is now January 26th.
