Armored Core: For Answer Rumbles Into Stores On September 16

Mech fans who enjoy good gameplay usually can't turn to the Gundam titles - they're either just plain mediocre or downright awful, like Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire - but From Software's Armored Core franchise has routinely delivered the goods in spades.

Ubisoft just recently revealed the latest entry in the franchise, the strangely named Armored Core: For Answer, and suddenly, we now have a release date. Apparently, they waited until the game was almost fully complete before issuing any concrete details on it; according to GameSpot, this one's coming in less than a month: September 16. These games have always boasted intricate, intense battles between immense pieces of machinery, and they're expressly designed for avid followers of the series. Action fans who aren't familiar with the franchise may be surprised and even uncomfortable with the inherent complexity of an Armored Core. However, given the streamlining we've seen in next-gen titles so far, it's not surprising to see the developers include the option of using either beginner or advanced control mechanics. Great idea, we say.

In addition, For Answer will feature a great online co-op mode (30 missions!) in 80 different arenas, which means this new installment will also fully embrace the online aspect of a new generation. Can you believe this one is the thirteenth Armored Core? Dear Lord.

I think there's a demo out for it (at least there used to be). But either way, don't base your opinion of Armored Core on that one, from what I remember it wasn't that great. Anyone else have a better experience with it?

The PS2 versions were good. The PS3 version (AC4?) wasn't.

I don't have high hopes for this title but it may well surprise me. I look forward to possibly playing a demo.

I'm a total Armored Core nut. I downloaded the demo for this off of either the JPN or Hong Kong playstation store and was completely utterly unimpressed to say the least. I hope the release version of this game is a lot better.

It wasn't praised highly but the Japanese gamers really loved it i believe. I tried this one from the Japanese psn store and I liked it...the big boss they have in the mission was a bit much for me tho lol...I was never good at these games XD

AC is a great series I think. The sheer difficulty of the game will make it worth the money spent.

This has been out in Asia for a bit, I think. I got a two part movie for it off of the HK Playstation Store a bunch of months back. A demo, as well.

Too all those that arent really used to the series go and pick up ac2 or ac2 another age... and you get a good gauge on the series but dont base your opinion off the newest one. Sega had there hands in it and thats what i blame for its mediocrity.
