AC Battle TV

Some interesting developments in Armored Core’s official website. From seems to be launching a replay based broadcast service upon the release of Last Raven Portable early this March. Speculations run that the service will allow players to upload and download various replay battles that builds upon Armored Core: Last Raven’s ability to save and load battle replays, a first for the series on the PS2, and likely the feature is being ported over to the PSP version as well.

Suddenly, we’re getting this idea of roving caravans of LR player teams all over Japan with their PSPs duking it out with other AC groups and posting the replays on Armored Core Battle TV. No news if this service will also be accessed when the international English version does get released.

In other news, From released a variety of Armored Core based themes for the PSP, go check them out as well.

Thanks NiX for the heads up.

Dengeki Online Magazine has released a new batch of screen shots for the upcoming Armored Core Last Raven Portable, and these compelling screen shots show that one more additional item that seems to be missing from the Last Raven Portable extra parts list.

It seems that ACs featured in Dengeki Hobby Magazine’s own Armored Core Retribution published back in 2007 will be featured in the game, much like how the Victoria AC from Brave New World was featured in Silent Line Portable.

From the screen shots, we can see that this new arm part will function as a shield given its arm position, unless there are last-minute changes in its design and function for the final release. Additional screen shots after the jump. Continue reading »
