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.

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. This fourth installment of their Armored Core V streaming demo series promises to feature the game’s whole CG intro cinematic.

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