The YouTube account CDCFL801 is totally packed with pain-staking stop-motion animations using various toys and figures such as Gundam and Busou Shinki. The webisodes are particularly noteworthy for excellent editing, super-smooth animation, and dynamic movement. What may be even more amazing is how his extensive collection survives such filming ordeals. Now if only we could understand the dialog…

Update: So apparently, the video above (which has been replaced with FromSoft’s own high-quality upload) is just a snippet of the actual opening cinematic for the game. The whole thing is scheduled for June 6th. The archived footage of the full broadcast, which mostly touches on the story and missions, has also been added below.

yatagami0 on YouTube swiftly uploaded Armored Core V’s CG opening cinematic right after the conclusion of fourth live demo, which is really great for those of us who missed it!

Armored Core V Extended 3

The Armored Core official site has just been updated with the schedule of yet another tease-fest that is the Armored Core V – The LIVE for REBOOT.

And based on all previous Armored Core CG openings (except maybe Project Phantasma, which was pretty bad), this should be epic as well.

Expect the stream to go up on June 2nd at 7:00 PM (Japan time) through their usual Famitsu and Ustream channels.

That's not shopped.

Update: New video clips added!

Last night was yet another live demonstration for the upcoming Armored Core V. I hear that tanks and quads and anime decals were shown, though I actually haven’t watched it yet. But you can see for yourself in the recorded video below.

Update: The video finally introduces ACV Quads and Tanks. Get ready to see some semi-transforming “Siege Mode” and first-person view zooming for Quads, and a slug fest with some Tanks. Some decal editing was thrown in too, as you can see in the image above. Continue reading »
