    Wait, why is Lynn Minmay listed under Macross Frontier> she’s from the original Macross series.

    I’d like for once in these games if you could play as the actual characters in sections instead of just the mechs. Like a downtime section on board the ship interacting with the other crew members Mass Effect style

    If this don’t come to the west I might have to import.
