We’re in for a new Another Century’s Episode at this week’s Famitsu (via SRW Hotnews), this time for the PS3.
The cast list (red items are series newcomers):
- Z Gundam
- Char’s Counterattack
- Crossbone Gundam
- Gundam SEED Destiny
- Overman King Gainer
- Full Metal Panic!
- Code Geass R2
- Macross Zero
- Macross Frontier
A small note mentions that Char’s Counterattack only entry is the Nu Gundam. The scans show Solar Aquarion, Lancelot Conquester, VF-25F Messiah, VF-0A, Orguss, ARX-7 Arbalest, King Gainer, Crossbone X1 Kai, Destiny Gundam and Z Gundam. The story passes at an original planet called Area.
For example, there’ll be only Destiny, Strike Freedom and Infinite Justice for SEED Destiny, Lancelot Conquester, Shinkiro and the Guren Flight Type, as well as C.C.’s unit for Code Geass R2. However, armor and powered-up versions doesn’t count as a different unit, so there’ll be a Normal, Super and Armored version of the VF-25F and so on.
He also explains that the reason for such small cast list is to focus on the graphics for the new hardware and the music will be instrumental, except for a few (namely a full version of the one Ranka and Sheryl sing), unlike The Final. On a related note, he was concerned why they named ACE3 as The Final… but it was, for the Ps2 anyway.
And, R stands for Reverse! (Will the next ones stand for Destiny and Judgement? ^_^)
