More Armored Core headed your way in September.

Armored Core: Verdict Day is in development at From Software, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 sequel will launch in Japan on September 26 for 6,800 yen.

New features include a reformed, Armored Core V-based match-making system with added components, and the ability to import your Armored Core V save data.

During territory conflicts, players will be able to choose which side they belong to. The outcome of the battle could lead to a change in the world’s balance.

The mag also has a screenshot of a Beehive with the following line: “This emblem is proof that this world does not have peace.”

A special edition of the game will include an Armored Core mecha figure, art book, and soundtrack CD set.

Thanks, Tale Tale Source.

    Feels like Armored Core V came out forever ago

      That’s how I felt too the other day when I found it on my PS3 games. I played it for a month straight then stopped due to all the lag issues people seemed to be having. No issues with my friends but I guess I kept connecting to people who did have issues. Ruined hte online experience for me. I’m glad to hear they’ll have import feature. I hope there will be a LOT of new parts…including SMGs. I loved SMGs in the older games but for some reason they removed them and only had energy ones in V. :(

    Hopefully this one is better than ACV.

    I kinda want it to be more like ACIV/For Answer, though I’m probably in the minority.

      Well if you are in the minority I’m right there with you. I loved 4/For Answer, I thought ACV was a step back ESPECIALLY in AC tuning. The prior 2 games would prepare you for owning a real mech.

      Count me in the minority as well. ACIV and FA was more fast paced and I felt their was more skill involved. Probably won’t be like those games though considering the robots were made to be more realistic.

      guess i’m part of this minority as well

      I personally think AC turned to crap after 3. I hated 4 and the whole primal armor and 5 didn’t even look like AC. This is one series that has fallen off big time.

      the online in ACV was pretty good tho, to bad there aren’t many active people…

  • zeongundam

    I love the name it sounds badass. Looking forward to seeing an emphasis on the story this time. Don’t get me wrong I liked the online but my team is never on, so I mostly play the story and order missions anyway. Also V=5 The V in Verdict symbolizes i’ts a sequel to 5.

    I skipped out on V, but I’ll keep an eye out for this.

    I hope From Software learn from the success of MS Gundam: BO when it comes to simplicity and fun online matches. And I hope Bandai Namco release a single player for MSG:BO like Armored Core.
