News: Gundam Musou 3 DLC Outlined

Posted on : 20-12-2010 | By : | In : News

As we mentioned previously, the just released Gundam Musou 3 will receive its first batch of DLC on December 22nd (oddly co-inciding with the release of Virtual On Force no less). The DLC will be split into three mission packs, costing a 100 yen each (on PS3) or 80 Microsoft Points (on 360). There will also be multiple new mobile suits attached to each pack. Whilst we already knew about the GNX-Y901TW Susanowo and NZ-666 Kshatriya, according to 4Gamer there will also be the GN-006 Cherudim Gundam, GN-007 Arios Gundam and GN-008 Seravee Gundam included too. It’s apparent in any case that DLC will be quite vigorously supported for the game, whether that any of it will make it out of Japan come Gundam Musou 3’s inevitable Western release remains to be seen though. Still, we’re just happy to see the Musha Gundam and Musha Gundam Mk. II from the first Gundam Musou game again.

News: Exia added to Gundam Extreme Versus

Posted on : 18-12-2010 | By : | In : News

4Gamer has the scoop on a new playable addition to Gundam Extreme Versus. That of the blade wielding GN-001 Gundam Exia from the first season of Gundam 00. In addition, the Exia can be encountered on one of the EX stages as an enemy in the game (specifically 3-A EX). As well as the inclusion of the Exia, there’s also a new boss mobile suit design in the game now. Specifically, a mode of the Extreme Gundam called the Tachyon Phase, designed again by Kunio Okawara. We think it looks pretty sweet. As always, still no word on the obvious PS3 release but the game is looking pretty damn amazing, hopefully we’ll know more in the New Year.

News: Virtual On Force 1:1 Scale Temjin 747 Poster

As shown in the latest column over at the Virtual On Force site, there’s now a 1:1 scale Temjin 747 emblazoned across the side of the Gigo arcade in Akihabara, all 16.3 metres of it. For those somewhat confused, VR’s aren’t as big as most mobile suits so the poster is actually pretty accurate. Separately, 4Gamer has some new gameplay videos of the port in action. The game is released next Wednesday, 22nd, in Japan and you still pre-order your copy here.

News: Senjou no Kizuna Torrington Update

Game Watch has some nice coverage of a recent update (Rev 2.50) that occurred on December 16th to the glorious Senjou no Kizuna arcade game. Specifically on the inclusion of Torrington Base from Gundam 0083 (video shown below). What’s especially nice is that the map has the Albion as the Feddie base, with a Zanzibar II on the other side obviously (for the Zekes). As always, it’s pretty cool that the game is still getting supported with content (even after 4 years).

News: Virtual On Force Famitsu Score

Posted on : 15-12-2010 | By : | In : News

The nearly released Virtual On Force has been recently reviewed in Famitsu, nabbing a 7,7,8,7 score (or 29/40), which is by no means a bad score – quite respectable in fact. However, it’s nowhere near the almost mythical heights that the Dreamcast port of Oratan reached; as that attained the very rare 39/40. At the time that amounted to a pretty big deal, still does to an extent. That said Force is indeed flawed, compared to the previous two games, but it is an awful lot better than the hacked up port that was Marz. It’s nice to see that Famitsu have called this one pretty accurately though.

News: Another Century’s Episode P Combination Attacks

Famitsu has some nice new coverage explaining how the new combination attacks in Another Century’s Episode P will work. Unlike the same attacks in ACE 2 and 3, it seems that these will be more manually controlled as the player will need to hammer their targets within a time limit. Successful face raping of the enemy in question will also net the player more ACE points for upgrading. With the game’s release in a few weeks, it will be interesting to see how gamers take to this after the pretty appalling ACE R. In any case you can pre-order the game here.

News: Gundam Musou 3 New Screenshot Update

With Gundam Musou 3 near release in Japan, 4Gamer has some cool new screenshots of the game’s Partner Strike system as well mobile suit customisation. Though we’re mostly nerding out on the shots for the RX-78GP01-Fb Gundam Full Vernian “Zephyranthes” from Gundam 0083 (pictured above). Despite being one of our favourite Shoji Kawamori designs it’s also been somewhat in the news as of late, mostly due to Linkin Park’s fascination with the mobile suit. Unsurprisingly, the game’s site has also reciprocated this current interest with showing a new special video of the mobile suit. Naturally, as this is Gundam 0083 we’ve included the series’ two very lovely opening animations (in HD no less) below. That said, we still think that Back to Paradise would have been a better intro song.

News: Virtual On Force on RADIO 4Gamer

4Gamer has announced that it will be hosting an interview session of sorts with the team behind the 360 port of Virtual On Force as well as with Juro Watari, the series’ creator, himself. The session is scheduled for 26th December, which also happens to be my birthday. Whilst the pimping of the upcoming, and utterly redundant, Softbank strategy guide is unfortunate the radio session should be an interesting – unless of course they start talking about how great women’s breasts are again. The game is released on December 22nd in Japan and you can pre-order it here.

Following on from the announcement recently, 4Gamer have some nice coverage of the upcoming Artdink developed Macross Triangle Frontier on PSP. Again, we’re pretty much spooging over the fact that Macross II is getting a campaign and that we get to play with a VF-2SS Valkyrie II again.

To commemorate the forthcoming release of Virtual On Force, the 360 port of Oratan 5.66 is having its price cut in Japan. Specifically from 1200 MSP to a very reasonable 400 MSP. Like the previous price cut, this too will be for a limited time only – from December 14th to the 27th. There’s no word whether this deal will make its way outside of Japan, as the timing is linked to Force’s Japanese release.
