Although the younger generation might primarily equate From Software with a couple of infamously punishing action RPGs, some of us know that what they are really masters of is putting players in control of giant, awesome in mechs and getting them to fight one another.
More importantly, more mechs are coming are way very soon.
Namco Bandai have announced that From's latest mech battler - Armored Core V - will be releasing in Europe on 23rd March for PS3 and Xbox 360. Which just so happens to be in my birthday week. Perfect.
"Gamers have been eagerly anticipating the release of Armored Core 5, which will bring strategic mech combat to new heights," said From Software executive Eiichi Nakajima.
"With cooperative missions, a persistent online world battling for territories and epic team battles, Armored Core 5 is the complete action shooter package."
