Toys: Robot Damashii Kshatriya Revealed

We now have details on Bandai’s upcoming Robot Damashii NZ-666 Kshatriya as seen in the Gundam Unicorn OVA, it’s to be released next March and it will cost 13,440 yen. Interestingly, it appears that this will be a regular release as well and not a webshop exclusive. The toy itself is also rather large and appears to have some quite intricate engineering, which likely explains the higher price compared to other figures in this line. We have also been graced the seventh and final episode’s teaser trailer for the anime too, that will also be released next year. In any case we’ll definitely be picking this up in March and will likely review it too, if only to give our Robot Damashii Sinanju review some company.

Earlier this month, Namco Bandai had several location tests for the newest sequel of the Extreme Versus franchise, Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost. Several details were leaked prior to this during a recent preview of the game at a trade show, but we were still unsure of what to expect from the game. Thankfully, gamers bravely subverted location test security to secretly take videos of the first build of the game. In the video, you can see the Gundam AGE-1 go into it’s EX Overdrive mode to become the Spallow Wear, which looks somewhat similar to Spiegel Gundam in terms of moves so far. Check out the video below and see what you think about the game.

There’s a nice preview of Arcadia’s upcoming 1/60 scale YF-19 toy over at Moeyo (Warning: link also contains boobage). There’s a lot of nice sculpt and detailing work here, which makes the rather steep price tag somewhat more palatable. Considering the release is in April of next year, we’re saving for this little beauty already. You can pre-order the toy here.

News: Ex-S Gundam confirmed for Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost

exs

After much speculation, the Ex-S Gundam from Gundam Sentinel will finally be coming to the PS3 version Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost as free first pressing DLC. Similar to how the Hi-Nu Gundam was a first pressing DLC unit for the home version of Gundam Extreme Versus, players who purchase the game within a certain time frame will get a special code in their copy to download the unit from the PSN. Players who download the game from PSN will more than likely get the code included in their download list, similar to how other games with similar incentives appear on the PSN download list when purchased. If you happen to not get a first pressing copy, don’t fret. If history repeats itself, the Ex-S Gundam DLC might eventually show up available as a free download in the upcoming months similar to how Hi-Nu Gundam DLC showed up as a free download with the first set of DLC packs for Gundam Extreme Versus. It will be interesting to see what kind of gameplay Ex-S Gundam will bring to the roster as it appears to be a transformable suit as well! Another neat update is that the Full Boost Mission Mode (which was originally called Trial Mode in the prequel) will be online enabled. So if you’re having trouble with a particular mission, you can bring along a PSN buddy for the ride. We will update you with more information on the unit and other DLC details as they come.

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.

wingzero

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

volks_temjin1

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.
