One of the more interesting releases from Bandai as of late has been their DX Chogokin VF-19 Advance as seen very briefly in the second Macross Frontier movie. As there have been a fair few YF-19 toy releases already, and we reviewed Arcadia’s last attempt, this is the first time that Bandai has attempted the design to this degree of fidelity. As you might expect, Bandai have utterly nailed it.

News: Super Robot Wars BX Gets Launch Bonus

Due to all the pre-orders that Super Robot Wars BX has received, Bandai Namco will be including a download code for 2nd Super Robot Wars for those that buy the game at launch. This was the follow on to the first Game Boy game released in the same year, except this was (originally) on the NES. It also kickstarted the whole series to become a serious sit-down console game, rather than just something for a handhelds. The fact we’re getting this included with BX is a nice little touch. The game is released on August 20th in Japan and you can pre-order it here.

Videos: Marasai/Gabthley Added to Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost

The next mobile suits to join the Maxi Boost roster are the Marasai/Gabthley combo from Zeta Gundam. Piloted by Jerid Messa, the 2000 cost unit allows you to switch between the two mobile suits. While the switching mechanic is currently unknown, this isn’t the first suit to allow you to change into different units during a match. The Kapools had a tag mechanic that allowed you to change between what was essentially ranged and melee mode. While that doesn’t appear to be the case in the Marasai/Gabthley combo, we’re sure there will be definite advantages to choosing either suit. Let us know what you think of this addition and be sure to check out the video below!

News: Perfect Gundam and Marasai/Gabthley Coming to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost

dlc

More units are coming in the form of Perfect Gundam and Marasai/Gabthley for both Maxi Boost and Full Boost. Scheduled to be released on July 22nd, these two units will be the 9th and 10th additions to the Full Boost roster since the 1.08 patch went live in May 2015. While not much has been discovered regarding the units’ playstyles, Perfect Gundam’s addition represents another Gundam manga series to the EXVS franchise in Plamo Kyoshiro. As for the Marasai/Gabthley, it will be interesting to see if the switching mechanic is similar to the Kapool tag mechanic or is like Char’s Zaku II where some moves switch to Char’s Z’gok for a set amount of time. It is interesting to see that Bandai Namco is still actively supporting Full Boost through brand new units that have yet to appear in Maxi Boost, which raises questions about Maxi Boost’s eventual console release. Anyway, let us know what you think about these two new units in the comments below!

We were recently graced with all manner of new promo videos for the upcoming Super Robot Wars BX. The first was an hour long conference that covered various things regarding the future of Super Robot Wars (we’re getting an iPhone app apparently) but also got some new footage of BX. This was then released as a separate video, so you don’t need to trawl through the hour long conference.

The game is looking good though and the sprites have been partially updated for the returning series it seems. Though it does feel a bit weird when gaming franchise make their way into these games, as the Macross 30 units squaring off in another game is a bit odd but still cool obviously. The game is released on August 20th and you can pre-order it here.

rigs_announced

Amongst the rather amazing selection of games announced at Sony’s PlayStation Briefing at this year’s E3, was the game Rigs. Developed by Guerrilla Cambridge, Rigs is basically an e-sports type first person shooter with mecha. The twist is that it uses the Morpheus VR headset for the PS4. Now I am not sure whether this will be any good but it looks promising at least and the Morpheus setup could result in something interesting. The trailer for the game (shown below) is quite interesting but seems more interested in showing the various facial reactions of the players rather than the game itself. No word on when this will be out but we’ll be keeping our yes on this.

News: Gundam Extreme Versus Force Trademark Registered In Japan

According to Esuteru, Bandai Namco have registered the trademark to “Gundam Extreme VS – Force” in Japan. As it has been awhile since we’ve heard any news regarding a new version of the Gundam Versus franchise, this appears to solidify the next sequel will still be carrying the Extreme moniker. Whether or not this will imply no paradigm shift in the gameplay mechanics is still up in the air, but it is great to know that they are working on a new version. Does this mean we’ll be hearing about a Maxi Boost console version soon as well? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

tf_devastation_leaked

So a commercial listing for the upcoming Transformers Devastation was recently leaked. This is a cel-shaded brawler developed by Platinum Games, set for release on pretty much everything (as in PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360). The game will also feature all the classic 80’s English voice cast too. After the High Moon games we are a bit wary of someone else handling Transformers, that said this is Platinum we are talking about and they do make well crafted games on the whole. The cel-shading also looks good too but until we see it in motion we’ll reserve judgement, as this kind of thing is notoriously difficult to get right. Set for an October release this year our fingers are crossed for this one!

News: Assault Suit Leynos Trial Version Announced

leynos_trial

As of this Friday, the belated Assault Suit Leynos port on PS4 will be getting a trial version for all and sundry to check out. Naturally this will only be available on the Japanese PSN store but it is a free demo at least and easy enough to set up a Japanese account. That said, from the screenshots and various gameplay movies already released this new port doesn’t look all that great. After Gunhound, Dracue can clearly make a good game in a functional sense but it seems their technical expertise is a bit lacking when it comes to more advanced hardware like the PS4. Anyway, we will all be able to see how they’ve been getting on with this new trial version. The full game is expected to be released in December of this year.

Another Wing Gundam TV suit joins the party in Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost with Tallgeese II. Piloted by Treize Kushrenada, the blue version of the Tallgeese siblings is a 2500 cost unit and looks like it takes moves from Tallgeese I from Next Plus and Tallgeese III. It comes equipped with its famous dobergun and a Lady Une-controlled Wing Gundam as an assist. It’s Burst Attack even has Wing Gundam pushing the Tallgeese II out of Libra’s cannon blast, just like in the show. Check out the video below and let us know what you think of this new addition!
