During a recent round table at Namco Bandai headquarters in Tokyo, I asked From Software’s Hidetaka Miyazaki about the future of Dark Souls, as well as what else the studio is working on. The good news is yes, a new Armored Core is coming. The bad news is that, at least for the foreseeable future, more Dark Souls is…
Besides mecha anime, video games also feature some of the most awesomely-designed armoured fighting vehicles. Japanese games—mostly shooters—tend to dominate this field (sorry MechWarrior), so narrowing down our selection to Japenese mecha was an obvious decision from the beginning.
I've been staring at this chart for hours, and I just can't make sense of it. Isn't Armored Core V about giant robots shooting at each other?
You can never have too many giant killer riding robots. Thanks to Armored Core V's customization options, you'll soon be able to put that ancient wisdom to the test.
With Dark Souls already out in the world, dev studio From Software's moving from magic to science with the upcoming Armored Core V. This video runs through the basics of multiplayer and shows off the new Operator role in action. It looks like there's going to some tower defense elements in coming to ACV, when it…
Yesterday, Kotaku posted this still image of an inventive way to hold the PS3 controller and play mecha game Armored Core.
The Armored Core games, from Dark Souls's developer From Software, give players the experience of controlling a giant mecha. As you can imagine, giant mechas are complex machines and, thus, so are Armored Core's controls.
From Software's upcoming Mech-buster Armored Core V has a release date—it'll be landing in stores on March 20th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Apparently, it's not really the fifth title in the series, it's the fourteenth. Fancy that. Check out a trailer for the game here.
From Software, the studio behind Armored Core and Dark Souls, is currently working on a Gundam Unicorn game. It is a PS3 exclusive, and it will be out next spring. More info in the link. [Mecha Damashii]
Sure you do! At the recent All Japan Plamodel Hobby Show held outside Tokyo, a whole bunch of figures were on display. There were the standard bishoujo ("beautiful girl") statues, along with mecha and robot figures. Let's focus on those.
Armored Core V is not the fifth game in the Armored Core series. Funny that.
Armored Core V, the latest mecha title from Demon's Souls studio From Software, looks fantastic. Fans can't wait to play it, but they're going to have to. The game's release date is no longer October 20.
Dark Souls, the spiritual successor to tough-as-nails Demon's Souls, looks to be wonderfully difficult game—if not more difficult.
For all the bitching and moaning about Japanese games being creatively bankrupt, lame, or simply crappy-looking, there's this, Dark Souls.
There have been many Armored Core games, but Armored Core V's box art is a break from the rest.
Do you like your giant mech games dark, grainy and gorgeously lit? Then you may want to eyeball these new screens of FromSoftware's Armored Core V, the next entry in the long-running and prolific series of mech-versus-mech games.
The team behind the Armored Core series is giving fans another dose of massive mech-on-mech action next year. Armored Core V from FromSoftware mixes things up with new "atmosphere" and online action "newly designed to focus on huge team-based battles on a global scale."
Even if you don't like the Armored Core series as a series, you have to admit, those giant mechs look pretty cool. And toys based on those giant mechs are pretty great, too.
Giant robots aren't just for fighting! They can also be used for...construction work! And...complex song & dance routines!
