Silent Line Intro AC Crest Assault Type Model Kit

Japanese Armored Core Silent Line Fight Videos

Now that Armored Core Silent Line Portable has been released in English, people might wonder how different Silent Line is compared to its predecessor and the rest of the Armored Core games.

As evidenced by the videos above and to follow, a lot has changed from the days of Armored Core 3 Portable. These videos were taken from Naitoh’s AC site some time around 2003-2004 during various sparring sessions or actual tournaments on the PS2 version.

These featured are probably among best Ravens to ever pilot an Armored Core, so its worth watching them. Maybe these fights might inspire some people to play AC more often and learn a couple of things in the process. One important thing to note: all these videos are played in hard mode, meaning all the lock boxes are much smaller.

More videos after the jump.

Victoria AC for Silent Line Portable

Looks like Silent Line Portable will be getting a new head part based on the Brave New World side story, as the AC Victoria is confirmed to appear in the game. No details on the part functions as of the moment, but it seems to be a trend as the GLITCH head from AC3P was also from the Brave New World side story. More pics of the head part after the jump.
