News: Tamashii Nations 2015 Impresses With Lots On Show

tamashii_nations_2015_new

The recent Tamashii Nations 2015 event over last weekend was one of certain significance, showing off all manner of new toys it was interesting to see a very large resurgence of classic designs. The main contender being of course Macross, with the recently announced Macross Delta getting a good amount of love. With the series’ latest variable fighters on show (the new VF-31 is shown above). The big surprises on the Macross front though were the inclusion of the VF-4 Lightning III and VF-2SS SAP as part of the new VF HI-METAL R range. Not to mention the sheer volume of classic Macross toys on the way, with a huge DX Soul of Chogokin VF-1J being very notable.

Bar the huge Macross showing, there was a lot of other surprises too. From the Robot Damashii Sirbine to the Robot Damashii Patlabor mecha, it seems Bandai are finally pulling their finger out and really going after what fans actually want. The icing on the cake being the Super Robot Chogokin Giant Robo, which has been far too long in coming.

Overall it was an amazing show and had a lot of awesome toys on show and to look forward to. If you want to see more of the event then you can do so here and here.

The teaser site for a new Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost game went live today and it reveals an update to the game in the form of Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost On. What’s more there will be locations occurring in Japan over the weekend. Interestingly, the game also includes both the G-Self and Gundam Barbatos that will be present in the upcoming PS Vita game Gundam Extreme Versus Force. In addition, the game will also include a new Extend Burst mode to the already existing Shooting and Fighting types. No word on an arcade release but considering the timing of the location tests I am guessing it will be out before the end of the year here.

News: Countdown Site For Big Gundam Extreme VS Maxi Boost Update Up Now

Bandai Namco have just recently uploaded a new countdown site for Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost. Apparently, this is for a brand new update to the existing game and is heralded as “the most exciting version.” While my personal exciting version would be a home release as we still have not received word as to when that will show up, I’m guessing this update will have massive balance changes across the board and possibly new units as well. Perhaps this might also be a shift in how Gundam VS games will be updated from now on versus incremental sequels. Another thing to note is that the countdown date expires around the same time Playstation’s Paris Game Show event starts next week! Coincidence? Let us know below about what you think will show up in this update.

News: Sony To Release Limited Edition Gundam Extreme Versus Force Vita And PlayStation TV

Sony Japan has just released new information regarding limited edition versions of the Gundam Extreme Versus Force Vita and Playtation TV in December 23. With a price tag of 27,980 yen for the Vita and 18,180 for the PlayStation TV, you get an etched console, the game, special themes, and a nice collectors storage box. While I was hoping for a Zeon Red Vita like the limited edition PSP that came with Gihren’s Greed, these are relatively tasteful customized versions that would look good on anyone’s shelf. If you want to grab one, you’ll have to go through the Japanese Sony Style store to do so. Let us know below if you’re planning on ordering one of these!

Bandai Namco have finally announced Gundam Extreme Versus Force will be released on December 23rd. This only applies to the Japanese version for now, as nothing has been announced for English localized version. On top of the release date, more information regarding gameplay modes was announced as well. Aside from the usual 2 vs 2 mode that is available via ad-hoc mode called Force Battle, the meat of this new game will center around the single player mode called “Extreme Force.” In this mode, you lead a squadron of units that can be collected from the missions you experience, with your hero mobile suit as the lead. Similar to other Extreme Versus games, your team also is built around the cost system. The stronger the unit, the higher the cost. You can also strategically control your units via the “Force Command” to either engage, withdraw, gather, or disperse depending on the situation.

New units to the series that are currently exclusive to Extreme Versus Force include the G-Self from Reconguista in G and the Gundam Barbatos 4th Form from Iron-Blooded Orphans. The latter is a first print exclusive DLC, so be sure to grab yourself an early copy! We will update you as more information regarding the gameplay mechanics around the Force System is released. Until then, check out the latest promo released for the game below.

You can also pre-order the English version of the game here.

News: Muv Luv Gets A Kickstarter Campaign

muvluv_kickstarter

A new Kickstarter campaign plans to bring the first two Muv Luv visual novels to Steam, with a full English localization. The initial goal was $250 thousand but the campaign has already blown clear past that. The series is an interesting one, as it deals with an alien invasion and the mecha used to take the aliens on. The mecha design is also pretty damn fantastic, so in that sense I am glad a series as popular as this is finally coming Westward.

Toys: Riobot Metal Gear Sahelanthropus Announced

As part of Sentinel’s ongoing Riobot range, we’ll be finally getting a toy of the Metal Gear Sahelanthropus from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. Like prior toys in the range, this will also have a good chunk of diecast included. The extra good news, bar the LEDs and accessories, is that T-REX are also working on the design of this. Released in April next year, the Riobot Metal Gear Sahelanthropus will cost 41,040 yen. Considering it transforms and it is pretty massive with it, that’s a fair price all things considered. The mecha itself is pretty anachronistic within the series’ timeline but it makes for a fun boss fight at least (the latter being shown below, though obvious spoiler warning attached to that). You can pre-order this new toy here.

News: Assault Suits Leynos Port Gets New Demo

leynos_new_demo

The upcoming PS4 port of Assault Suits Leynos is getting a new demo this Friday (25th). The full game is also scheduled for December 23rd but from what I’ve played of the game thus far in the prior demo I am not holding my hopes out for this one. While it will clearly be better than the awful PS2 port of Assault Suits Valken, it’s still not a patch on the original game. I am a fan of Dracue’s work though, as the Gunhound games are good fun, but this feels like a tech demo than game. In any case, the latest trailer is out and shown below.

News: 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim Announced

Vanillaware have finally announced their new game and it’s called 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim. Not only does it look suitably sumptuous, like all their games, but it also features mecha. While not much is known about the game, bar that is set for release on PS4 and PS Vita, we are very curious to see how this title will turn out. Previously Vanillaware has only really done fantasy themed action RPG’s, often with a historical bent. This looks decidedly futuristic and sci-fi with it. The music is also being Hitoshi Sakimoto and thus far has a real Origa vibe to it. The launch trailer is shown below.

Following the news that the next Gundam Extreme Versus game would be shown at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, we now know that Gundam Extreme Versus Force will very likely be a PS Vita exclusive. In the launch trailer (shown below) we see all manner of new game modes and mobile suits, with the YG-111 Gundam G-Self being notable. The upcoming ASW-G-66 Gundam Barbatos may also be present in the game but no further details are available about that yet. This will be the first named entry in the series to not have an initial arcade release. While this is definitely a PS Vita game we may yet still see a PS4 game come out but we’ll just have to wait and see if anything else pops up. No release is currently set but it’s probable we’ll see something next year.
