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

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.

At the recent pre-TGS Sony Conference, another short teaser trailer of the unnamed Gundam game for the PS4 was shown. Aside from the titular RX-78-02, more series-lead Gundams appeared such as Unicorn, God, Turn A, 00 Gundam, Wing, Full Armor ZZ, and many more. Here’s to hoping we’ll see more about this game during TGS 2014, but at the very least we now have a tentative 2015 release date. Until more info drops, feast your eyes on the teaser from the show.

News: Chara Hobby 2014 and Metal Robot Damashii

Over the weekend, Makuhari Messe in Tokyo (well, technically Chiba) hosted yet another event, that of Chara Hobby 2014. Prior to that Bandai announced a new line of toys called Metal Robot Damashii. We held off on mentioning the latter because we guessed (correctly) that the new toy line would be shown at Chara Hobby. Well, it turns out the first figure in the new toy line will be the mighty RX-93-v2 Hi-Nu Gundam (pictured above). You may be thinking, didn’t they already release a Hi-Nu Gundam recently? The answer would be “yes” (we reviewed it too) but this has all manner of diecast in the joints and other detailing. Subsequently, it looks utterly glorious. No word on price point or release date as yet but we’ll let you know as soon as we do. In the meantime check out the video of the new metal infused Hi-Nu Gundam below.

As for the rest of Chara Hobby, there was a lot of cool stuff on show. From the eye wateringly expensive Soul of Chogokin Gaogaigar which is out in December, to the gorgeous Megahouse Orguss. Anyway, check out the coverage here, here, here, here and here.
