Videos: Gundam Breaker 2 Extended Promo
What with the release of Gundam Breaker 2 only a few weeks away now, Bandai have rolled out an extended trailer. This time voiced, very enthusiastically, by Loran Cehack...
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.
In a surprising turn of events, it looks like Right Stuf have brokered a deal with Sunrise to bring Gundam to the West. The first series of which being Turn A Gundam, that already had its Western release cancelled a while back. All in all this is fantastic news, as it finally means that Gundam can be released commercially again in the West. Hopefully Right Stuf will handle the Gundam mythos better than those before it.
Also over the next few days we’ll be posting a few more toy reviews here. Lots of new Robot Damashii goodness. We’re also aware we’ve been a bit quiet as of late. That’s mainly because we’re in a release lull for mecha games. Once things kick off again we’ll still be here, so don’t worry!
We’ve now got some more bits and bobs on the upcoming Gundam Breaker 2. Notably that you can square off against battleships now, which is pretty great, as well as the ability to use the FXA-08R Mega Rider from ZZ Gundam. Bar new units and characters, the big new stuff we thought we should mention is that the game engine has had a decent amount of work done on it. It’s clear that Bandai have put a bit more budget behind this one. 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.
A new trailer has been released for Gundam Breaker 2, coming to the PS3 and Vita. The video boasts an apparent 100 million possible customizations as the sequel has added loads more parts to the fray. You’ll be seeing kit pieces from Gundam AGE, Gundam Build Fighters, MSVs, and more! On top of that, pre-orders and 1st edition pressings get new parts from Gundam Build Fighters Try. Make sure to check out the video below and see what’s been added.
Whilst this year’s Tokyo Game Show lacked any new From Software mecha games, it seems that we might be getting a new announcement in November. Whilst we don’t know for sure that this will be a new Armored Core game, considering the history of the studio it seems likely (or at least a new mecha game anyway). In addition, we may now also start to hear more announcements from other Japanese studios on new games in development. As a lot of stuff is currently being worked on it seems.
