Macross Trial Frontier (PS3) Announced

Time to kick off the new blog with an interesting bit of Macross news... this October, our friend in Japan will see the release of Macross Trial Frontier, the first Macross title for the Playstation 3. Due out on October 7, 2010, Trial Frontier will have a retail price of 7,140 yen.

Details regarding this new title are predictably slim: we know that it will include all of the typical Macross elements: transformable fighters, lots of singing, and more missiles flying through the air than you can imagine. Check out the scans of the Famitsu article for details:

Gundam Unicorn Episode 2 North American Release Trailer

Bandai Entertainment recently announced the second episode of Gundam Unicorn, The Red Comet, will be available for sale in North America this November, at an MSRP of about $60 USD, with a special $45 price for online pre-orders through the Bandai Store.

Bandai has also released a special subtitled trailer to help promote the upcoming English release.

Content-wise, this trailer is identical to the previous one.

As mentioned previously, the Blu-Ray release will include a special 28-minute bonus video--but don't expect to see any other extras. In addition to the Blu-Ray release in November, Bandai will also be releasing Unicorn through the Playstation Network.
