Macross 30: Voices Across the Galaxy is a title celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Macross series and is a crossover title between the five major Macross series: Macross, Macross Plus, Macross Zero, Macross 7, and Macross Frontier.


Of course, like all things Macross, it comes with transforming planes, love triangles, and more than a little of the trademark Macross missile spam. It also has a major focus on the excellent music of Macross, with many songs from the various series appearing in the game. But more than just hearing the famous songs in the background or in concert scenes, the singers and their songs become part of your arsenal.

After you befriend each singer as the overall plot of the game progresses, you are able to have the singers ride shotgun with you. Each of their songs can be used as a special attack. The songs do everything from boosting your defense and regaining your HP to freezing your enemies in place. In other words, you can destroy your enemies thanks to the power of rock.

Check out the video above to see (and hear) these powerful songs in action.

Macross 30: Voices Across the Galaxy was released on February 28, 2013, for the PlayStation 3. There are no plans for an international release.
