In case you haven’t heard: Armored Core V has been out in Japan since yesterday.

I don’t have a link right now, but I’ve read that it’s been reviewed very favorably by Japanese gaming magazines Famitsu (34/40) and Dengeki Playstation (85/100). But more importantly it’s been received even more enthusiastically by the fans.

After playing the demo, I’d say it does live up to the 2-year hype. If you’re not yet convinced, you ought to watch the video above featuring 5-on-5 online multiplayer action from the full game.

For those eager enough to jump straight into the Japanese version, you can check out some of the guides generously prepared by our friends at ACU.

Head over to the forums for more up-to-date Armored Core V news and discussion.

UPDATE:

And here’s a preview of the English release coming out on March 20, 2012.
