    This looks pretty awesome. And I’m not even a mech fan.

  • TrevHead

    dammit that looks good, shame it’ll probably never make it outside Japan

  • Go2hell66

    take out the mechs and put in Izayoi then i’ll pick it up day 1

    •!/kaishou Kaishou

      is izayoi that popular or something?

      • Go2hell66

        nah just she kind of looks like a gundam :3

        •!/kaishou Kaishou

          she does? uhm..uh…no.

          • Go2hell66

            she has a giant laser sword and rocket boosters in her ass
            thats a gundam if i ever saw it

          •!/kaishou Kaishou

            Uh so? a lot of mecha has those. It doesn’t mean it’s a gundam.

          • Go2hell66

            well the green sword and the green rocket boosters kind of look like GN particles, she kind of looks like 00 raiser when she’s flying around

            man i hate explaining my jokes :/

          •!/kaishou Kaishou

            :V no…just no.

          • Go2hell66
          • rxsiu

            Gonna have to agree with Kaishou. That’s a no.

          •!/kaishou Kaishou

            From the looks of it, her side skirt are the thruster….still a no.

          • Go2hell66

            sigh you guys are no fun -_-

          •!/kaishou Kaishou


          • DrakosAmatras

            Gundam ∈ Mecha; Mecha ∉ Gundam. Everybody satisfied? Good. Now drop it.

            -_- …

          •!/kaishou Kaishou

            no i’m not.

          • Go2hell66
          •!/kaishou Kaishou

            still not gundam.

          • MrTyrant

            >GN particles

            That’s it, another Gundam 00 fanboy. Give them some brilliant particles to anything and they will think that it’s a Gundam, derp.

          • sd28

            you do realise that she has trans-am right

        • LynxAmali

          What do Valkryies have to do with Gundams, aside from being giant robots?

  • WFoong

    Must get the Limited Edition! Look at price O_o… oh god… let’s save money… Died X#X

  • Göran Isacson

    But what about the timeline? What about the paradoxes? WHAT ABOUT CONSIS-on second thought I don’t think I care. There will be love triangles, planes, missiles and singing in great amounts. Deliver that, and I think fans will be happy.

  • usagi_san

    I am going to marathon the anime series; the game is looking good.

  • ddh819

    i wonder how playable it will be without being able to read it

    • neocatzon

      Agree, Artdink always getting better everytime and this one is a good collectible but the language barrier (and Japan price) is a hard consideration.

      • WFoong

        Hehe, you know… in Macross Triangle Frontier, they wrote “Sucdess” not “Success”XD

  • eilegz

    any hope to get this game localized? :/

  • Jason Naglic

    Will this get localized?

  • MasterHiei

    Looks like ass.

    • Syn

      The reflection in your mirror???

  • MrTyrant

    Looks cool but I am not a fan of Macross so probably won’t enjoy this much. Like that you have every character from the Macross universe and some originals with story and I also like the RPG system in the action game.

    I hope to see a Gundam or another mech game like this.

    • sd28

      try the another’s century series

      • MrTyrant

        I know them but they are not the same.

  • Andrew Austin

    Preordered the Box a few days ago. I was kind of surprised that it wasn’t as expensive as I thought it’d be (at least on amiami). Shipping is going to be a complete B though. Pretty hyped about this game. Never played the others, but it looks like this won’t be a glorified demo like the other PS3 ones.

  • The Letter D

    Macross you say!? I love the Macross franchise! But since it’s based on the Macross franchise, that means it won’t make its way to Japan. T_T

  • Eilanzer

    fanservice = ok

    story = almost certain a meh…a bunch of characters from different macross series put together is just strange…
