From Software has 3 New Titles They Are Working On, One is a New Armored Core

President at From Software Hidetaka Miyazaki was recently interviewed by IGN and shared some new information on their upcoming line up.

Here are some quotes from the interview below.

“So there are several titles that we are currently working on,” Miyazaki told IGN. “Some of those are dark fantasy, some of those could be a mech [game] – that’s one thing. The second thing is that one of the new titles I’ve been working on will probably comply with the expectations from the fans in straightforward manner.”

When asked if the mech game was an Armored Core title, Miyazaki  replied, “Yeah, we’re already working on Armored Core.”

“The last thing is that another title will probably be a little bit weird. When we actually announce the title, probably fans will react with ‘oh, what the hell is this very weird game that Miyazaki has created?” he said.  “So when I say weird, I mean that the genre we’re trying to try might be a little bit weird. Not only that, but all the other actual game content might be a little bit weird, yes.”

From Software says it still has “several obstacles to overcome” to launch the new games, and that “we’re not sure how many more years we need to build those,” but that it’s looking forward to making an announcement “in the future.”

Amored Core Board Game? Yes, it will be real

Publisher Bad Crow Games has announced an Armored Core board game heading to KickStarter very soon. The board game will be name Amored Core RTS, where players pilot miniature mech models simultaneously through a 3D cityscape. They dodge around corners, boost to the rooftops, and activate weapons at the same time to capture the speed and action of the video games.

The developers incorporated a variety of mechanics but the largest innovation is an LED pointer built into each miniatures’ base to provide instantaneous line of sight.. Physical buildings provide cover from the lights.

About the Game
This officially licensed board game version of Armored Core™ is for 2 to 4 players (expandable to 6), and has been specifically designed to be fast to set up, fast to teach and fast to play.

Between the 20 minute missions, players spend the rewards they earn for accomplishing objectives to upgrade their mechs and equipment. Like the video games players are able to customize their mech according to their play-style and team role. Over the course of the campaign teams will strive to accomplish objectives for their faction in order to become the ultimate ‘Ravens’.
