News: Armored Core Verdict Day Region Free?

In a recent Q&A with Bandai Namco Europe’s Anthony Grabit it was said that Armored Core Verdict Day “is not region locked”. Whether this is specific to the European release or, far more importantly, the international servers is by no means clear at this point. However, what with the game’s release imminent (today in the US, the 26th in Japan and 27th in Europe) we’ll know for sure soon enough. Our review will be of the Japanese versions if anyone is wondering. You can still pre-order the game here (PS3) and here (360).

Videos: Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle Promo

What with this year’s Tokyo Game Show over, there are all manner of new things flying around. Some of these are to do with the upcoming Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle brawler out on November 28th. The new promo (shown below) pretty much covers the same ground as the first and emphasises the fact that the game aint a looker. We’re also somewhat concerned at how the various mecha are moving, as our mecha sense is tingling somewhat. To be more specific, the game looks damn unwieldy but until we get to play it we won’t know for sure. Again, the fact that this is an in-house job does worry us. Especially as Banpresto’s track record with mecha action games is sketchy at best. In addition, there’s also a new Dark Prison promo too. Don’t forget that you can pre-order the game here.

Toys: Arcadia YF-19 Pricing Details

We now know that the new 1/60 scale YF-19 by Arcadia will be released in April 2014 for the eye watering price of 32,800 yen. Admittedly this isn’t just a re-release of Yamato’s old 1/60 toy but all new and based off the engineering used in the Fire Valkyrie toy. It also comes with a lot of extra missiles and the FAST packs seen towards the end of Macross Plus. Still, the price is a lot more than we were expecting. No wonder Yamato went bankrupt!

News: Virtual On Memorial Event Breakdown

Following on from the Virtual On Memorial Event we mentioned, 4Gamer have a nice breakdown piece. Despite the appearance of peeps from Volks and Haseagawa regarding all manner of kits, the interesting stuff came from Mori Yasuhiro (a designer at Sega who worked on both Marz and Oratan, he’s also the guy wearing the Tangram t-shirt in the above picture). Notably that there may be a new Virtual On game surfacing during the series’ 20th Anniversary in 2015. Now, this isn’t the first time this has been said but we do know that since Force there have been multiple attempts at making a new Virtual On game (with Border Break being the unwitting results of one of those attempts). Anyway, we hope that whatever is planned finally sees the light of day (preferably if it’s an arcade game too obviously).

The fifth episode for Super Robot Wars Operation Extend is now out. If you’ve already bought the combined pack then you can download it for free, otherwise you’ll pay 1000 yen. Thus far we’ve been having mixed feelings about the game, on the one hand the roster and radial movement is great but the ill-placed freemium nonsense is really damn annoying. That said, we are still having fun with the game. The next episode is released on the 26th and it seems that we’ll get to play with the Sirbine too!

News: Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost Limited Edition Arcade Stick Announced

arcadestick02

Looks like we’ll be getting another limited edition arcade stick courtesy of Hori. Scheduled for release in 2014, the Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost arcade stick will go for 16,800 yen and will be released in limited quantities. Based on the NOIR arcade cabinet layout and using the same model as the previous Gundam Extreme Versus stick and Soul Calibur V arcade stick, it is built to look like it was pulled off of the Full Boost arcade housing. It will use the Sanwa JLF 8 way stick and Sanwa OBSF-30 for the face buttons, bringing arcade quality parts to your PS3. The button layout on the stick replicates the arcade version exactly, but you can fill in the extra button slots if you plan on using it for other games. There’s also a very cool clear button cover with the VSTG logo over the start button that’s super slick. It also comes with button stickers to indicate what actions each button represents, similar to the arcade version. As an owner of the Soul Calibur V arcade stick, this is a very quality product if you can get your hands on it.
