We now have the third promo for Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle. This covers the various game modes and shows off the likes of Daisanger, which is a very welcome addition. We’re still not sold on this game, partly because of what it looks like but more down to how the core mechanics seem to be playing out. Once it’s out at the end of this month we’ll be able to appraise it more accurately. You can pre-order the game here.

Toys: Tamashii Nation 2013 Coverage

Now that this year’s Tamashii Nation event is underway we’ve had all manner of reveals, many of which are pretty surprising. First off is the confirmation of the DX Chogokin YF-30 Chronos (shown above) from Macross 30 and it looks rather magnificent indeed. Following that we have the re-appearance of the 1/35 scale RX-78-2 Gundam Ver. Ka that’s part of the Gundam Fix Figuration range. This last appeared back in 2009 and many thought that it was dead and buried. No word on price or release date but expect the former to be a pretty long figure. After that there’s the Soul of Chogokin Gaogaigar, whether this will do the much loved Final Fusion gattai sequence is unclear but likely considering the history of the toy line. After that there are all manner of new Robot Damashii figures, from the aforementioned Skullheart, to the Zwarth and even the Kshatriya. Though the real surprise is the Geminass from the Wing sidestory G-Unit. Even the Virsago Chest Break from the latter half of Gundam X is on the way. A special mention also needs to go to the new Hello Kitty chogokin, as after 40 years she will finally get her own mecha. Shown no mercy Kitty-chan! If you want to browse the rest of the show’s coverage then you can do that here, here, here and here.

News: Reset Revealed

reset_tease_2

A nice new indie PC game has been revealed by the name of Reset. Helmed by two former Futuremark employees, Alpo Oksaharju and Mikko Kallinen, (who worked on Shattered Horizon) it features a mecha as it solves puzzles co-operatively with itself across time. It’s nice to have a mecha game that doesn’t shoot things in the face and the puzzling premise sounds fantastic too. There’s a teaser trailer going the rounds as well (shown below) and it’s wonderfully atmospheric, with an almost Silent Running vibe to it. No word on a release date or price as yet but apparently there will be crowdfunding set up for this pretty soon.

The Premium G Sound Edition of Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost for the PS3 has been confirmed to be on the Japanese PlayStation Network. If you are unaware of what this limited edition entails, it will include over 30 tracks that are not included in the base version of the game, to include several ones that were originally included in Gundam Extreme Versus. There have been questions regarding its availability outside of the recent retail date confirmation of 30th January next year, but you can now grab it day one if you don’t mind forgoing a physical copy. The limited edition will also only be available until April 2014, so if you really want the extra tracks not included in the normal version, be sure to grab either the physical or digital version before then. The Premium G Sound edition will be available on the Japanese PlayStation Network for 10,980 yen. You can also see a current full listing of what songs are available in the limited edition here. As of now, there are no additional units or game modes in the limited edition, but we will update you with more information as it comes. If you prefer a physical copy then you can pre-order the normal and Premium G Sound Edition accordingly.

Kits: Volks Oratan Temjin Kit Details

We now have details regarding the Volks 1/100 scale kit of the noble MBV-707-G Temjin from the much loved Virtual On Oratorio Tangram. In short, the kit will be made from injection plastic (something of a rarity for Volks, as they historically manufacture garage kits) and will cost 5,040 yen. Released this December, it’s in the same ballpark as the excellent Kotobukiya kits. However, it is somewhat odd that Kotobukiya are no longer making Virtual On kits. That aside, the sculpt on this kit looks rather nice indeed and it’s nice to have a new kit of this design. Especially as it’s been previously rather poorly serviced (the less said about the Kaiyodo figures the better really). Considering that this is our main VR and one we won a tournament in Japan with it’s nice to have a decent kit of it on the way finally.

Videos: Shin Gundam Musou Gameplay Promos

Gundam-musou-for-ps3-ps-vita-2-948x533

Namco Bandai has released two new videos of Shin Gundam Musou gameplay including the Strike Gundam and Big Zam. The first video shows gameplay from the game’s Official Mode, which replicates stories from the titular Gundam series whereas the second video is from the Ultimate Mode that brings the series crossovers, similar to the more recent Gundam Musou games. One niggling aspect of the game are the rather poor character cut-ins when initiating a musou attack. It feels like it adds to the overall drop in visual quality in comparison to Gundam Musou 3. Anyway, check out the two videos below and judge for yourself.

Toys: YF-30 Chronos DX Chogokin Revealed

Whilst we’d seen early toy prototypes of the majestic YF-30 Chronos from the latter part of Macross 30, we weren’t sure if a release would materialise. Now it seems that a DX Chogokin is planned for display at the upcoming Tamashii Nations 2013 event this November, though no news yet of a final release date or price. The above picture is from the CAD render for the figure in case you’re wondering. Considering that the Isamu Dyson YF-29 DX Chogokin was a webshop exclusive, we’re pretty sure this will be too. The YF-30 is an exclusive design featured in the game and is more of a fighter bomber due to it’s longitudinal missile pod. It goes without saying that it’s also one of the best variable fighters you get to play with, so a toy version is most welcomed.

Toys: Super Robot Chogokin Genesic Gaogaigar Preview

genesic1

Over at AmiAmi they have a really lovely preview of the forthcoming Super Robot Chogokin Genesic Gaogaigar toy slated to come out in March of next year. Price-wise it looks like it will be in the same range as the other toys from this line, a considerable reduction compared to the Max Gohkin toy released a few years back. Admittedly this will be a smaller figure but the sculpt and accessories are arguably as good if not better. We’re also pretty sure this won’t be a webshop exclusive either. For those unaware, the original Gaogaigar was designed by none other than Kunio Okawara but the later Genesic version was handled by Kazumi Fujita, an interesting parallel to that of the original Gundam designs and their Zeta counterparts. Anyway, this is one of our favourite super robot mecha and to have it made more accessible is a lovely thing indeed.

Now that the Vita version of Gundam Breaker is now out, there has been an update for the PS3 game. Apart from adding the new mobile suits from the Vita release there are all manner of other balancing changes. From boosts to weapons as well as mobility increases, the biggest change though is the increase of drop rates for parts (something that should help alleviate the grind). In addition to this, there will be 30 new missions along with 2 new mission types. There is even a new promo video and some rather comical adverts now too (linked below). Don’t forget you can still buy both the PS3 and Vita versions of the game.

Toys: Robot Damashii Skull Heart Revealed

rd_skullheart

In a recent issue of Gundam Ace, Bandai revealed that they are indeed making a Robot Damashii figure of the mighty XM-X1 (F97) Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai Kai “Skull Heart”. This being the improved version of the original XM-X1 (F97) Crossbone Gundam X-1 Kai seen in the rather brilliant Crossbone Gundam manga. Whether this toy will also have the Full Cloth setup as seen in Steel 7 is unclear. Now these aren’t the first Robot Damashii figures from the series, as we nabbed all three at launch, but this will be a very nice addition. No word on release date or pricing and we’re hoping this isn’t another webshop exclusive too. Once we know more we’ll post it accordingly.
