Courtesy of our good friends at HobbyLink Japan we’ve been sent the Super Robot Chogokin Mazinkaiser as seen in Mazinkaiser (though its origins predate that by quite a bit). In addition, we’ve also included some game and anime footage of the mecha in action at the end of the review.

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.

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.

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.

We now finally have a promo for the upcoming Shin Gundam Musou. This shows off both official and ultimate modes as well as what appears to be playable mobile armors (the latter being somewhat comical). Unlike previous entries in the Gundam Musou series this will not have a 360 release. This is hardly surprising as 360 sales in Japan are pretty much non-existent. The game will be released on both PS3 and Vita on the 19th December. Don’t forget you can pre-order both versions here (PS3) and here (Vita).

The fifth episode for Super Robot Wars Operation Extend is now out. If you’ve already bought the combined pack then you can download it for free, otherwise you’ll pay 1000 yen. Thus far we’ve been having mixed feelings about the game, on the one hand the roster and radial movement is great but the ill-placed freemium nonsense is really damn annoying. That said, we are still having fun with the game. The next episode is released on the 26th and it seems that we’ll get to play with the Sirbine too!
