zaku

Gundam.info has recently released news on next two units coming to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost for the PS3. They are Cucuruz Doan’s Zaku II (1000 cost) and Anavel Gato’s Gelgoog (2000 cost). Doan’s Zaku II, from the Doan’s Island episode of Mobile Suit Gundam, is one of the genuinely “new” additions to the roster as it is neither a pilot swap or reshuffled suit, similar to the GNXIII. True to the episode it hails from, Doan’s Zaku II fights throwing rocks and using mobile suit martial arts with Amuro’s core fighter assist. Gato’s Gelgoog, from the beginning of Stardust Memory, differs from Char’s Gelgoog by having a single shot charge shot attack, a Rick Dom assist instead of Lalah’s Elmeth, and a halberd throw. Each of these units will cost 381 yen before tax. Here’s to hoping we see more DLC down the line after this bunch is released, preferably brand new units this time!

As today is the day when stupid gags run amok Bandai haven’t missed trick and done a new promo for Super Robot Wars Z 3, this time including the soon to be released Hello Kitty chogokin. Obviously, our furry friend won’t be joining the playable roster but we actually wouldn’t mind at all if she did. In any case, the game is still on track for its April 10th release and you can pre-order it accordingly here (PS3) and here (Vita).

Following on from the Rise from the Ashes promo, we now have one for the Zeonic Front remake. Unlike the previous entries, Zeonic Front is functionally very different and is far more about strategy. Without this planning element that was integral to the original game, we’re not sure how the remake will operate without it (as narratively it was pretty weak). That aside it’s clear that the RX-78-6 Mudrock Gundam will be present, which is nice at least. The game is still on course for its May 29th release and you can pre-order the standard edition here.

hexa

Are you ready for more clone DLC? 4gamer has released information on the next two DLC units to hit Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost on April 2, Elle Viano’s Gundam MkII and Marbet’s V Gundam Hexa. Both units are of the 1000 cost tier and will cost the usual 400 yen. In regards to gameplay differences… well the Hexa looks to be an exact moveset copy of the existing Victory Gundam whereas Elle’s MkII  is more long range oriented with the Hyaku Shiki and Zeta Zaku for assists vs Kamille’s melee oriented MkII moveset. With this release, it appears there will be two more units left to appear. One can hope for more DLC units in the near future, specifically brand new units that don’t necessarily have to be of the Maxi Boost fare.

Toys: Robot Damashii Full Armor ZZ Gundam Announced

Following on from the regular Robot Damashii ZZ Gundam, we’ll be now getting a new toy of the mighty FA-010S Full Armor ZZ Gundam this August. Priced at 7,560 yen it’s a bit pricier than the regular version but it comes with more gimmicks and is a fair bit bigger. It’s not quite as sleek as the version in the anime but it’s still most welcome nonetheless, as the last toy we had of this was the godawful Gundam FIX Figuration version and then in the Sentinel colours. This new Robot Damashii figure looks just the ticket and as with the rest of the line, it will likely have great articulation too.

Update: This is a web shop exclusive.

srwz3_burglarydog

What with the release of Super Robot Wars Z 3 only a few weeks away, we’re very glad to see the likes of the mighty ATM-09-DD Burglary Dog from Shining Heresy being finally shown. The other aspects to this update are that we have another confirmation for the final universe spanning forms of Gurren Lagann being playable and that the Sazabi looks pretty damn boss. We’re still put out about the lack of Final Dancouga but this still looks to be a great game and one we’re very much looking forward to. The game is still on track for its April 10th release and you can pre-order it accordingly here (PS3) and here (Vita).

Following on from the Blue Destiny promo, we now have one for the Rise from the Ashes remake. Again this is using the new game engine and is not a functional remake of the original game. In addition the RGM-79SP GM Sniper II (shown above) is equipped with the wrong beam rifle (as the one in the original game was the P.B.R-0079/A12 S-000011 beam rifle, rather than the long range rifle shown above, though this has been a staple load-out in other games). The game is still on course for its May 29th release and you can pre-order the standard edition here.

hangedman_kit1

Following on from Bandai’s toy, Kotobukiya have announced a Hanged Man kit from Armored Core V. Like the previous kits in the range, this is similarly gimmick ridden. There’s also an additional campaign where you can get the Moonlight and Another Moon laserblades. The kit is release this July for around 9,000 yen, though you can pre-order it here for less.

zakuzeta

Gundam.info has released new information on the upcoming DLC units to hit Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost on March 19th. The following units will be added to the roster: Zaku Zeta (1000 cost), Poe Aijee’s Sumo (2000 cost), and Andrew Waltfield’s Gaia Gundam (2000 cost). Like previous DLCs, these units are modified from existing versions already in game with slightly different attacks and EX Burst Attacks. At first glance, it looks like Poe’s Sumo appears to be a straight clone of Gold Sumo aside from less ammo, whereas Waltfield’s Gaia seems to have interesting changes versus Stella’s unit. Most of his attacks transform him into the dog mobile armor mode and has no manual transform and is more melee focused, whereas you’d have to manually switch into the MA form with Stella’s Gaia. How this will change gameplay is yet to be determined, but we’ll find out next week. I am glad to see Zaku Zeta show up in playable form as it has always cracked me up at its existence. Each unit will cost 400 yen each.

gbo_million

So in less than two years, the freemium Gundam Battle Operation has now reached 1 million downloads. Most of these gamers being middle aged guys apparently, which is actually different for other games and aspects of the Gundam franchise (as in Japan it’s about a 50/50 split between men and women). That aside, we’ve played this again since we got back to Japan and it does play better, as the crazy amazing net connections here mean you don’t suffer from lag or the horrible framerate issues I saw when I played it in the UK. It’s still pretty awful though. Anyway, a million downloads. Wooo!
