Videos: Project HON Updated Game Footage

So the initial announcement of Project HON sorta cherry picked footage for impact and didn’t give much of an overall sense of the game. Well, now we have around 20 minutes of mostly unedited game footage. In it, we see how much this game is like Armored Core V and Verdict Day. Not to mention how it has taken inspiration from classic anime like Gordian, where mecha get into larger mecha in order to power up. In addition to this new footage we’ve also been graced with a video of the game running on a mobile device. Now the game isn’t playable in this form, as it’s meant as a spectator setup only, but it’s technically very impressive to see. The new videos are shown below.

Video: Gundam Sandrock Added to Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost Roster

Now all the G-Boys from Gundam Wing have been added to the Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost roster with the addition of Gundam Sandrock Kai from the Gundam Wing TV series (if you don’t count the Wing Zero clone with Quatre). As the November roster addition, Quatre’s Gundam comes in as a 2000 cost unit. Its expected arsenal is there with the iconic Heat Shotels, sub-machine, and Maganac Corps as its assists. The Sandrock also employs the Zero System similar to Wing Gundam Zero which prevents it from being locked on for a short amount of time. All that’s left now is the original Wing Gundam to be added… and maybe a Mercurius or Vayaete. Make sure to check out the video below and see Gundam Sandrock Kai in action!

To sweeten the deal for newer players buying Gundam Breaker 2 on release, Bandai have thrown in an incentive. For first time buyers of the game, they will be given a code for the new BG-011B Build Burning Gundam from Gundam Build Fighters Try (shown below). This means players will be able to use this unit’s parts to create their own version, as is the way with the Gundam Breaker games. The game is set for a December 18th release and you can pre-order it here.

News: NCSoft Announces Project HON

project_hon_teaser

At the current G-Star 2014 show in Korea, it seems that NCSoft has announced a new mecha TPS game called Project HON. This looks to be quite similar in functionality to Armored Core V and Verdict Day and is also using Unreal Engine 4. Previously, NCSoft has made only fantasy styled MMOs with human scaled characters. They currently have no experience making any form of mecha TPS game but from what we have seen it looks they might be able to pull it off.

Update: Added new footage and modified above text.

News: Project Nimbus Early Access Announced

We’ve known about Project Nimbus for a good while but have not really been covering it. Partly because most Kickstarters don’t amount to much but also we weren’t sure about it either. However, as of November 5th the game will be available via Early Access on Steam. This will include the first four story chapters among other things. Now we’re not a fan of Early Access on principle, as really games should only be released once they are finished, but we’re happy to see that these guys have managed to get this far. In any case, the game looks to be very much inspired by the likes of Armored Core For Answer and is also aerial based. If you are at all curious then the early access trailer is shown below.

Videos: New Kagekiyo VR found in Virtual On Force

A good friend by the online name of Zaarock managed to find a new Kagekiyo VR in the 360 port of Virtual On Force. The new unit (shown in the video below) is similar to the “Wind” variant but is instead blindingly fast in close combat. The VR was unlocked via editing a save file and whether this was present in the original arcade release is unclear. He also goes onto state that there are multiple unused characters in the 360 port of Force, with both Ajim and Guerlain being playable and utilizing attacks not seen elsewhere within the game. In any case, we love stuff like this and it only highlights the fact that we need another Virtual On game. The full video is shown below.

News: Assault Suit Leynos Port Update

Famitsu has a nice little piece on the upcoming Assault Suit Leynos port for PS4, as it was apparently present at this year’s Bit Summit in Kyoto. The main news is that the game’s release has been delayed until May next year and it looks like the game will feature co-op play as well. In addition to this, Dracue released some new gameplay videos yesterday (shown below). If we’re honest, the game doesn’t look very good. Admittedly it’s not as bad as the PS2 Valken port (that was terrible) but for a modern 2D game on PS4 this looks decidedly amateurish.

News: Chikyuu Boueigun 4.1 Release Date

地球防衛軍4.1_20140901080259

The upcoming PS4 game, Chikyuu Boueigun 4.1 The Shadow of New Despair, has finally been given a release date; that of February next year. We got to play the game at this year’s TGS and it was pretty good, despite a rather erratic framerate. The mecha in the shot is called the Balam and is referred to as a “walking fortress”. We’re hoping Sandlot will be able to do a decent optimisation pass before the game is released, as having a shoddy framerate on a PS4 is a bit bizarre really. If you’re curious about Sandlot’s mecha game output over the years then check out our feature on that very subject.

In a recent update covering the forthcoming Gundam Breaker 2, we get to see all manner of new bosses. Such as the Adrastrea from Victory Gundam (as shown above). Bandai also released a new promo and this was the one shown at TGS, that displayed the depth and breadth of the customisation within the game. That’s shown below in case you’re curious. The game is set for a December 18th release and you can pre-order it here.

Well we’ve just had this year’s All Japan Model & Hobby Show and a lot of very cool stuff was revealed. Notably that of the Perfect Grade Unicorn Gundam (shown above), which will have an internally lit psycho-frame. Considering it’s been a while since we had a PG kit, this is a rather a big deal. Following that we had all manner of toy reveals, with Megahouse’s Orguss tempting us with regular brilliance (come on, just release it already!). Then Bandai’s explosion of various new Robot Damashii figures, including the upcoming Metal Robot Damashii Hi-Nu Gundam. In any case, AmiAmi has a lot of great photos and our friends from HobbyLink.tv also went (we’ve linked their video below too). So if you want to see more, then have a look here, here, here, here and here.
