Videos: E.X. Troopers Promo and Story Update

Posted on : 30-06-2012 | By : | In : Videos

A new promo for E.X. Troopers has been uploaded. Whilst it shows some more gameplay and characters, it still lacks a HUD so we’re not sure how much of the “game” we’re actually seeing. That said, if the boosting setup shown in the video is in any way present in the final game then we’re completely sold. It harks back to the rather glorious, if a little unwieldy (initially at least) Gunvalkyrie. Anyway, the other big news is that Dai Sato will be penning the scenario for the game. This is a pretty big deal, as Sato is responsible for some of the most lucid and eloquent scripts ever seen in anime. There will also be a promotional anime made by Satelight (Kawamori’s studio) too. Following on from that it also seems the game will feature co-op, but after Monster Hunter who’s really surprised about that? Especially in Capcom game where you fight giant monsters. Anyway, the more we hear about this game the more we want it. The new promo is shown below.

News: Gyrozetter Update and Toys

The brilliantly mad Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter is now gearing up for a national Japanese release. The official site lists areas where the game will be installed and they’re also not missing a trick in terms of pimping the forthcoming merchandise either. Talking of which, at the recent International Tokyo Toy Show there were some very nice Gyrozetter toys shown. These appear to be entirely made of plastic but the sculpt and finish put pretty much every US made Transformer toy to shame. As always, you’ll be able to buy the toys here.

4Gamer have a nice rundown of the other characters in the upcoming E.X. Troopers. Excluding Bren we have TeeKee an ex-Snow Pirate with mad language skillz, Chris the icy leader with a talent for piloting VTs (as well as being Bren’s main rival), Julie an upbeat mechanic and Luan who’s some kind of nerd when it comes to life on EDN-3rd. All in all it seems like a pretty standard mecha anime cast and it should work well hopefully. We’re loving the art style still and this is definitely one of our “do want” games.

The recently announced E.X. Troopers has finally had some more of its story details released. Featuring the plight of Bren Turner as he joins NEVEC’s “Academy”, his main desire is to be the best vital suit pilot. During his transport to EDN-3rd their ship is attacked by unknown vital suits, forcing Bren to enter the new Gingira VT (shown above) to defend the ship. Despite the new VT basically being called “glittering”, we like its design quite a bit. Anyway, the new high resolution screenshots look awesome and we’re really looking forward to finally playing this come its release later this year.

The rather fascinating arcade game Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter has finally had it’s 3DS tie-in revealed at a recent event. Going down a more RPG route, it narratively shares the same setup as the anime, manga and arcade game but will have its own story nonetheless. It will also have a wireless combat option too. The game will be released next Spring.

News: Lost Planet “E.X. Troopers” Tie-In Announced

In a move that’s more than a little bit uplifting, Capcom it seems haven’t entirely abandoned the Lost Planet series. A new Capcom developed cel shaded and anime styled game called E.X. Troopers has been announced. Both 4Gamer and Famitsu have the scoop, along with a nice promo trailer (shown below). Functionally it looks a bit more arcadey in places, with the player dashing around a bit now, but it’s still very much a Lost Planet game. Especially as many recognisable Akrid are present not to mention the all important Vital Suits. Released on both PS3 and 3DS, the game will also be playable at this year’s Capcom Summer Jam. Interestingly, Shintaro Kojima (the game’s producer) also worked on the Monster Hunter series so expect even more of that type of functionality in this game. It also seems that May’n, of Macross Frontier fame, will involved musically too. In any case, our faith in Lost Planet has been reaffirmed and we can’t wait for this when it’s released later this year.

Toys: Revoltech Jehuty With Vector Cannon Revealed

Posted on : 09-04-2012 | By : | In : Toys/Kits

Hardware: , , , ,

In typical Hideo Kojima fashion, yet another Revoltech Jehuty has been revealed but this time sporting an all new colour scheme and a very beefy Vector Cannon (pictured above). The latter is probably one of the most powerful weapons the player had access to in Anubis and was an actual necessity on some enemies (as shown in the video below). However, in contrast to the emphasis on mobility that the game was focused around the Vector Cannon required the player to be grounded and stationary in order to fire (it even had a rather long charge time too). Considering that this will be the third Jehuty Revoltech we are starting to feel that Kojima et al are milking it a bit now. Like with all Revoltechs though, this toy likely won’t break the bank thankfully. It will also be on sale mid-June with any luck too. Unfortunately, there’s still no word on when the HD collection will be out nor whatever happened to the mysterious 3DS game but in the meantime they seem fine to placate us with more toys.

Square Enix have announced an interesting new arcade game, entitled Chousoku Henkei Gyrozetter it features transforming cars with a pretty tricked out cabinet to boot. In the case of the latter, the actually controls transform from a steering wheel to a series of control sticks between the modes. The game will feature effectively a racing mode (for the cars) and combat (for the mecha). The cars used are all licensed too, as there are toys planned for release as well a 3DS port next year. 4Gamer has some nice shots of the game and its mad cabinet in case you’re at all curious.

Over at 4Gamer there’s a new update on SD Gundam Generation 3D. Covering the “chance pursuit” and “support sheet” systems, the first sounds like a quick time event after an attacks which allows a follow up attack from another unit. Whereas the latter sets up who gives this kind of support. In addition to all this the main site has been updating its video page pretty consistently as well, so those are worth a gander below.

News: Lost Heroes Announced

Famitsu has a nice update about a rather interesting genre crossover game. Titled Lost Heroes, it features the likes of Ultraman, Kamen Rider and…Gundam. Notably that of the RX-93 ν Gundam, which is a bit of an odd choice as you’d think the original RX-78-2 would be more fitting in a setup such as this. Not that we’re complaining though, as the RX-93 is one of our favourite mobile suits in the UC timeline. In terms of the game itself, it looks to be a pretty standard turn based strategy affair. No details on a price as yet but the release is expected sometime next year.
