stuff

In the latest Famitsu, the next batch of DLC for Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost will arrive on February 5, 2014. In a rather interesting decision, Quatre’s Wing Gundam Zero (2500 cost) and Shin Matsunaga’s Zaku II High Mobility (2000 cost) will be available for download for 400 yen each. Now if these units look rather familiar, it’s because they’re technically already in the game, but with different pilots. Mechanically, it appears their movesets are the same as well, similar to how the Lacus controlled Infinite Justice works. Units with cost revisions will more than likely have their damage, health, and boost changed accordingly. Aside from different burst attacks and a new assist for Matsunaga’s Zaku that replaces Johnny Ridden’s special movement, we won’t really know how different these units will be until we get them in our hands and try it out for ourselves. Does this also set a precedent for future DLC units in Full Boost? I personally never mind more Zaku II love, but I wouldn’t mind more variety out the gate especially with the announced Maxi Boost roster. Then again, this game has 98 units prior to these additions, so variety shouldn’t be an issue to begin with. We’ll update you as we find out more.

News: Gundam Gaiden Missing Link Announced

missinglink_announce1

After a recent hint in Famitsu we now have an outright announcement, that of a new Gundam Gaiden game called Missing Link. This will be third person PS3 game with emphasis on customisation and wingman control. The latter will also be pretty close to that of Zeonic Front, as you can hot-swap between your wingmen. The really interesting stuff though is that the RX-78XX Gundam Pixie has been mentioned. This came from really the first ever Gundam Gaiden game there is, Cross Dimension 0079. Not only did it feature a badass MS-08TX Efreet but it also had character designs by Toshihiro Kawamoto. If all this sounds familiar, well much of these elements have resurfaced across multiple gaiden games over the years. To further cheer you up, Masahiko Tokushima (of former White Dingo Team fame) will be helming this new game. Admittedly this will be developed by “B.B. Studio” but all that really means is that some of the Bandai developer legion will be assigned to this project. Trying to judge whether it will be be bobbins based off the studio in this case is somewhat moot, as Bandai have a lot of crossover internally and a distinct studio structure doesn’t really exist. Anyway, the more we find out about Missing Link then we’ll be sure to post about it.

Thanks to the indomitable Donkey Show, we found out details for an arcade location test happening this weekend for Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost. What with the PS3 port of Full Boost around the corner, Bandai Namco are getting ready for the next arcade iteration. Before we get into details, it’s worth clarifying that the game still appears to be running on a System 357 board (rather than the newer 478, which had been rumoured). Anyway, read on for our impressions.

Namco Bandai have released a new video showcasing 29 of the 98 mobile suits included in Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost for the Playstation 3. Aside from showing more footage of Ex-S Gundam and Johnny Ridden’s Zaku II High Mobility, the video shows off units from the following series: Mobile Suit Gundam, 0080 War in the Pocket, The 08th MS Team, MS Igloo, The Blue Destiny, Stardust Memory, Zeta Gundam, and ZZ Gundam. Although we pretty much have an idea of what will be shown in the following videos, it’s good to a confirmed number of mobile suits available for the game day one.

News: Super Robot Wars Z 2 Best Re-Release

srwz2_best1

What with the third installment of the series, entitled Jigoku-hen, released in April we’re now being graced with Best re-releases of both Haikai-hen (review) and Saisei-hen (review) this February. Like with the other games in this range, the Best versions are always considerably cheaper than the original launch versions. As we enjoyed both of the recent PSP games a great deal, we can thoroughly recommend these re-releases for those that missed them the first time around.

Update: The original PS2 game will also be getting a re-release, though only this time via PSN as part of the Classics range.

Toys: Metal Gear Ray Release Details

We now finally have details on the release of threeA’s Metal Gear Ray toy. Released this August, the toy will cost around 46,000 yen (in terms of RRP, though you should be able to find it cheaper). This is a fair bit more than threeA’s Metal Gear Rex that was released at the end of 2012. If we’re honest, we were bitterly disappointed with the Rex toy. For one the colour scheme was entirely wrong, it had nonsensical blue LEDs everywhere and, most damning of all, it lacked any diecast. This absence of diecast, especially in the joints, meant that due to its size the toy was rather delicate (as joints have been reported to sheer clear off). Thankfully this new Ray toy has the right colour scheme but it still lacks any diecast in the joints from what we can make out. Considering the price tag, this oversight is still very unfortunate.

 dlccostumesmall

Namco Bandai has updated the Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost console site with a new page detailing upcoming PS3 DLC. This includes pilot costume changes (300 yen each), new HUDs (100 yen each), and navigators (350 yen each). Two more units will also be added as free DLC as well. Joining the roster will be Johnny Ridden’s Zaku II (2000 cost) and a Lacus Clyne controlled Infinite Justice (1000 cost). These two come as a surprise to us as they have not been part of any rumor mills regarding possible DLC suits for the game. Also, Lacus’ Infinite Justice will come with new moves and apparently a Strike Freedom assist as well. Hopefully we will hear more about the game’s additions as the release date comes to a close at the end of this month.
