Namco Bandai and FromSoftware have recently updated the website for theirlatest game, Another Century's Episode: R. They've added a new CGI trailer for the mech game, which you can watch below.

video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCkKdYwD6e0&feature=player_embedded

The game, which is very unlikely to come out of Japan, features a mechs from a variety of anime series, including the various Gundams, Macross, and Code Geass.

It also looks like this will be yet another PS3 exclusive, as the website only shows the logo for PlayStation and mentions only the PS3, with a vague release date of 2010.

The vid looks good however, I doubt players will be able to do the same as in the video. Also, enemies better be able to resist more than one hit or the game is going to be a cake walk. I'll stay tuned to see how the game progresses.

looks interesting, although I prefer medieval games (demons souls, 3D dot game heroes), I would def check this out if it comes to NA.

The video reminds me of the big robot fights in Goemon 64 :P.

This is absolutely my dream game. Not only is it being made collaboratively by freaking From Software (Armored Core, Demon's Souls, 3D Dot Game Heroes) and Namco Bandai (ACE COMBAT MOTHA ****ERRR!"), but it features mechs. Mechs being my absolute favorite things in the world, they made them ANIME mechs. Freaking Gundam, Code Geass, Macross, Full Metal Panic, etc, etc. Oh God, I'm pissing myself. In any other situation, I would have seen this as an auto-fail since most games centered around using licenses from various franchises tend to do absolutely crap-like, but this is being made from some of the best mech and arcade plane game developers in the WORLD. Amazing developers with great track records? Check. Mechs? Check. Badass mechs from my favorite franchises? Check. Holy crap, if this doesn't get localized. then it'll be my first imported game.

Can't say this excites me, but Demon's Souls was amazing, so I'll keep an open mind.

As nice as this looks (and as good as the idea sounds on paper), i won't be fooled by some pretty CG. I'm definitely interested in the game, but until more info is released on the game play, I'm not going to set my expectation anywhere higher than "low" :P.

the beginning of the trailer just reminds me of the intro to demons souls. only instead of a monster holding a corpse flying by, a mech does

This isn't an Armored Core game. This series isn't new - there were 3 A.C.E games on the PS2, and so this is simply the first game in the series to be in this generation. Plus, they're already working on Armored Core 5. It's been announced with a teaser trailer.

Seeing how Demon's Souls exceeded their expectations that would be very probable. Only time will tell.

I really hope so, but the first 3 in the franchise never got localized. They had some pretty awesome mechs in those too, such as Eureka Seven's Nivash. Namco Bandai is pretty cool, so maybe they'll let it come overseas. If they fail, then Atlus is there, although honestly, there is a crapton of licensing to get out of the way with so many franchises being presented.

I absolutely LOVE how they introduced him with Suzaku's signature spin-kick. Here's hoping that Gurren is in it at least!

I read some Japanese characters due to I'm Chinese. As far as I know, it explicitely said its "exclusively" to PS3, so not only the PS3 text is showing in the trailer, but the Japanese/Chinese characters actually says its PS3 "only for." Also the vague release date in 2010, its actually not that vague. In the trailer, I also spot that it says 2010 summer, so my guess that its the release date, or just more info on during this summer. However, my big concern is that this kind of game won't be exported to the US, I hope it would but I just doubt it. If the release date is really in the summer, then it's more likely it won't released in the US.
