This official screenshot sports a sexy new head design previously absent from all preceding AC games. One can only wonder what other new surprises AC3P has in store for its followers and fans. Speculation goes that it’s the equipped head part of the new No.1 Ranker in the arena, replacing Ace as the arena top dog from the original AC3. See more pictures below and in the gallery.
As seen from this latest Famitsu magazine scan, Armored Core 3: Silent Line and Armored Core: Last Raven are receiving PSP ports soon as well. The listed release dates mark Silent Line due to release November this year, and Last Raven on March 2010. Two Tenchu games are coming out too, with Wrath of Heaven getting the first release this August, and Fatal Shadows on January next year.
Here’s the official launch page for these games. This was previously a countdown page, as what seems to be the norm for teasers these days.
No word on any changes in gameplay for SL or LR, though there is speculation it will take advantage of the PSP’s ability to connect online and play against other players via the internet as seen from AC3P‘s promo video.

Last March 21, 2009, RR had experienced probably its most awesome and grandiose event ever, the Build Your Own Burger event. The idea goes like this: 3 grills, 48 patties and buns, 8 sausages and buns, and an army of hungry guys bringing varieties of toppings ranging from veggies, spices, condiments, meats, and earnestly waiting to devour food.
So RR has its covergirl/mascot/muse or whatever you call her. Her name is Sophie Emilia. Here are a couple of colored works made by our resident artist/creator Trace-02.
From Software, the creators of the Armored Core, recently announced their latest game in the franchise. Armored Core 3, which originally debut on the Playstation 2 back in 2002, is receiving a port to the PSP. Improvements include an increased aspect ratio from the original SDTV 4:3 to the PSP’s 16:9, an improved garage interface reminiscent of Armored Core: Last Raven, and 4-player wireless ad-hoc gameplay. The release date is set for July 30, 2009, according to their official website.
