I actually wouldn't mind getting the Switch just for this game.
Same here. I was actually contemplating getting a 3D or 2DS now that the price has sunk near $100 for new units, but stuff like this may just make me get a Switch for those subway rides.
@Ultra: The Switch can punch above its weight. I'm sure it'll be optimized quite a bit more too.
Yeah, I don't have a switch yet but grabbing one for this game is not out of the question. I'll have one eventually one way or the other, and this is one game I'm definitely gonna add to my library.
So far the release date's a vague "2019" so I have plenty of time.
I uh, did go ahead and grabbed a Switch for this. Couldn't help it; Best Buy was selling 'em with a free SD Card that normally ran $180.
One of us one of us one of us you lucky bastard one of us
I'm surprised no one pointed out we'll have Amuro and Char here as Expies.
As a fairly loyal fan of the Gundam series, I am happy that is a feature!
Speaking of, I hope it's possible to get a mask for your pilot so you yourself can be a Char Clone.
Who else would you want your character to look like?
Someone who isn't so delusional that they attempt to kill the entire biosphere in the name of environmentalism?
Yeah but that mask is so cool.
This game is probably the closest we're going to get to the Calamity War, isn't it?
All you fellow Gundam fans know what I'm talking about.
Oh definitely! That's been my first thought from when I saw the first trailer, in fact.
I wonder what sort of post-game this will have. That was one place Armored Core always felt lacking; after you've acquired every part, mastered the arena and completed every mission, there wasn't a whole lot to do.
Honestly, I haven't properly dug into a proper Armored Core game, so I wouldn't have a clue.
But I would expect super-tough bosses where you have to put your skills to the test.
Seeing as Armoured Core is technically the Mecha equivalent of Dark Souls and all.
I'd argue Souls inadvertently took a few things from Armored Core (combat that revolves heavily around managing a stamina gauge, mini boss-tier enemies notable for having gear and abilities on par with the player's), but yeah, Armored Core is a linear string of missions that get you paid for completing them with some very slight branching depending on which Mega-Corp your support the most (though Last Raven and For Answer indeed have multiple endings) with no resemblance to Souls, structurally.
I mean. They are both From Software games. It stands to reason there's a modicum of shared Creator Thumbprint between the two series.
That's not what Creator Thumbprint means.
Oh well. Not taking it back.
Seriously though, one game I'm reminded of while watching this in action is Gungriffon thanks to the mech's momentum. The game definitely has a sense of weight to it.
I just realised something:
The title means "Demons from the machine." We're fighting against the Deus ex Machina (Gods from the Machine) that are ravaging the planet. By attempting to play God with our weapons, those weapons would destroy us if not for the mechs that we will use in the game.
And in Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, the Gundams seen in that series are all named after members of the Ars Goetia pantheon. Because it's eventually revealed that humanity had to create these "demons" in order to fight against the Mobile Armours (or "angels") for humanity's survival.
...That is uncanny, if you ask me.

So, if you could pick your own Red Baron what would it be?
I'm curious if we can name our machines. I'm totally calling mine Gunheart (Victor will be my pilot's name).
If we're naming the mechas, I'm going for the gurren lagann references. Lazengann was a perfectly good name for the ares 90 in xeno x.
