News: Armored Core Verdict Day Singleplayer Update

Over at 4Gamer there’s an interesting update for Armored Core Verdict Day. On the one hand it shows the new and nicely shiny boxart but also covers the game’s singleplayer component. Specifically, we have a fleshed out Story Mode that has you play single player narrative focused missions. The purpose is to clear all 60 missions and reach the plot’s conclusion. This is slightly different from the handful of story missions in the previous game followed by the the Order filler missions. This seems to be far more substantial in terms of content. Two player coop play is also possible for all missions and a UNAC or a mercenary can be selected as a partner. Once the story is cleared another mode, Hardcore Mode, will appear. This mode changes a number of things, such as clearing the story with higher difficulty conditions, from limitations on your AC to increased damage taken. There are a total of 10 different modes with a variety of conditions in Hardcore Mode. Beating Hardcore Mode will also result in your details being listed on online rankings. In addition, you can create a single player team and battle with UNAC (AI) AC as the team members. Not to mention that it is also possible to send only the UNAC units and participate in the battle as an operator. The mercenary setup is also very much still present and whilst you’ll lack voice communication you can still participate in the story mode missions just fine. Finally it seems the western release of the game will also get the same collector’s edition, which is pretty cool.

We now have a nice long new promo for Gundam Breaker (shown below). It shows all manner of stuff, such as the ability for HG (1/144 scale) and MG (1/100 scale) kits to face off as well as the ability to kitbash the respective gunpla ranges together (resulting in mobile suits that look rather cute). The promo is also voiced by Kamille (Nobuo Tomita) and Haman (Yoshiko Sakakibara), which is pretty cool. The controls have also bee updated too, with the right stick able to cycle through locked on targets (flipping the stick up will target larger enemies). The game is released on June 27th and you can pre-order the PS3 version of the game here.

Toys: Robot Damashii Divine Testament Gundam Revealed

testa

Looks like Gundam Seed Astray is getting a little more love in the form of the Robot Damashii ZGMF-X12A+AQM/E-X05 Divine Testament Gundam. From the Gundam Seed Destiny Astray manga, the Testament Gundam with its Divine Striker armaments is a fearsome antagonist mecha that is eventually repurposed for Kaite Madigan’s usage, one of the leads in Destiny Astray manga. In the manga, it also is able to attach other Striker packs such as the Sword and Aile packs designed for the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam, so it would be interesting to see if that applied to the Robot Damashii version. As for speculation time, could this be another hint into upcoming roster additions to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost? The Divine Testament Gundam is scheduled for release in September of this year.

Sentinel have finally revealed their upcoming Riobot Jehuty figure in all its glory. It’s considerably larger and more detailed than the previous Revoltechs, so this obviously comes with a larger price tag (of 13,500 yen) and will be released in September of this year. That said, this figure will come with a good amount of diecast too apparently so that’s good to know at least. You can pre-order yours here.

The third livestream for Armored Core Verdict Day will be happening on the 21st June (you’ll be able to watch it here). The previous livestream is also online here if you want to watch it. From what we’ve been seeing it seems that the game is going to be very good indeed. In addition, there are lots of rumours flying on Japanese boards about merged servers. If true that would make a huge and very positive difference to the game’s online community and potential longterm success.

Toys: Arcadia to release 30th Anniversary 1/60 scale VF-1J

After Yamato shut its doors, we heard rumours that Arcadia had bought the remnants of the company out. It now seems that those rumours had an element of truth to them, as we’ll be getting a 30th Anniversary 1/60 scale VF-1J toy in August. Whilst it looks pretty hideous and is no more than a re-paint of an already existing toy, this is still good news for Macross fans. Especially as Arcadia are also still planning to release Nekki Basara’s guitar too. In the meantime, if you really want you can pre-order the new VF-1J here

News: Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost Premium Dogfight Tournament 2013 on May 25th

dogfight

It’s that time of the year again where the top players from all over Japan come together to see who’s the best Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost player in the country! The Premium Dogfight 2013 tournament will take place on May 25th and be held at the Differ Ariake Arena in Tokyo. Last year, we saw a team of Tallgeese III/00 Qan[T] barely eek out a victory against a Zaku II FZ/Hildolfr team in the finals. It will be interesting to see what kind of matchups will be in store for this year’s tournament. Perhaps we might get some news about a possible home version of the game or even an upcoming sequel! Just because you may not be able to see the event in Japan, does not mean you cannot watch it live. Streaming info can be found on the Full Boost website here. Until then, watch some of the 2013 Tokyo qualifiers in the video below!

News: Bangai-O HD Half Price

As part of the current Deal of the Week, the fantastic Bangai-O HD is now half price (at 400 MSP). We have an enduring love for Treasure’s shooter, as archived here in our feature on the series. So if you haven’t bought the latest game already, then there’s no excuse now. Unlike the other Treasure releases on XBLA, this isn’t a remake of a previous game but an all new one. The reviews, especially in the West, were sadly rather lawltastic as it seemed to be somewhat of a shock to the system for many of them (as it’s obviously very skill based). So ignore them entirely and just buy it now. It’s bloody awesome!
