If you're eager to play a new Armored Core game, From Software has good news for you, while asking for a bit of patience.
Awesome, more PS4 games.
So perhaps maybe this is the game Geoff Keighley teasing about. Seems to much of a coincidence for him to tease a games 6th installment, and now we have armored core dev saying this and releasing a them tomorrow. They would be on the 6th one in the main installment so...
The whole thing about Keighley teasing a sixth installment was incorrect.
I had no idea how many FromSoftware developed games i had until I looked up what they have done. some really good games on ps2, og xbox, ps3 and 360 i have. Man i wish they would make a new Otogi.
Yess!!!! Otogi was the shit, had 1 and 2
@Darth Kings Field was the shit
From Software will you now confirm that Tenchu will continue and that a new game is coming soon? Please.
You and me both. We want a new tenchu, FS.
Actually since Activision failed to actively develop a game, the rights reverted to Acquire. https://www.dualshockers.co...
@morganfell Thats talking about trademarks, not copyrights. Activision sold the copyright to Fromsoft in 2004. Unfortunately, unlike trademarks, Copyrights don't expire when left unused.
I don't think Acquire ever owned the rights to Tenchu. They developed several of the games in the series but other companies owned the rights. Originally I believe Sony Music Entertainment owned the rights, then they sold the rights to Activision, but in 2004 Activision sold the rights to From Software. From Software developed Tenchu Z and they published Tenchu Shadow Assassins on the Wii in Japan and also developed the PSP version of the game. As far as I am aware From Software still owns the rights.
Nope sorry. New IP please
Check your math. Copyrights do expire. And that is talking about trademarks and Acquire holds the rights to the IP.
@Veneno The gaming world is not short on new IPs. What Sony IS short on is a sense of its own history. There's a reason that Nintendo can go through decades of failure and turn it around so quickly. Its because they remember where they come from. Besides, if you want new, its not new IPs that are important, its new gameplay ideas (something else Nintendo leads the industry in). Whats the value of a new IP if the gameplay is so damn similar to everything else that is out there? Why do you think people get excited by the idea of a new Armored Core game, other than love for the series? Its because there aren't any good mech games currently in the market. Project Nimbus comes out next year and that game looks awesome, but its a completely different beast than AC games. Its more like Omega Boost. Considering there aren'y really any dedicated stealth games on consoles, other than MGSV, I'd say theres no better time to bring back Tenchu. Besides, there is no point in allowing entities to hold copyrights if they're just going to sit on them forever. It neither benefits the sciences or useful arts, that way. @morganfell Copyrights do expire, but not in a reasonable amount (reasonable being 15-30 years, as opposed to current law, which is life of the author plus several decades). The article you linked is talking about trademarks. Trademarks do not grant rights to IPs, copyrights do, and Fromsoft holds the copyrights. No where in that article does it mention Acquire, other to mention its new game coming out.
Starchild you on your shit. AC and Tenchu. From needs to support both.
Well, thank you From Software for still have faith on Armored Core.
Cool, now Tenchu
I came in here to say just that. I miss Tenchu, but i am glad to see AC returning!
Exactly. I came to say the same thing. Hopefully they will bring back Tenchu. It is such a great series and it has so much potential.
Such a great series, so many different ways to go about it and good memories. Hopefully they do decide to revisit it again.
Be cool if we got a remake of one and two so we could play as Tatsumaru again. It would be such an epic story to retell on modern consoles.
Classic awesome series returning for a facelift!!, want a mech game and awesome one ?, well don't worry PS4 gotcha covered!! :D I hope Polyphony turns is head also for a mech game, on this case Omega Boost.
That would be awesome, I loved Omega Boost!
If you liked Omega Boost, check out Project Nimbus. It hits the west next year. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Oh hell yeah! I've never even heard of that one, it looks sick!
I wish they'll do another Enchanted Arms some day, brilliant game. No matter what this dev releases, I love their games.
Maybe we will get a reveal of the new Armored Core at PSX or the game awards.
SWEET another Armored Core. Day 1
I’ve never played any Armored Core entry. What are they like?
Hell freaking yessss
Damn. It's going to be badass.
A true Tenchu game would be downright awesome. With today's hardware, and progress with 3rd person game design since the last Tenchu, it could be something quite amazing.
Sadly it’s not on Xbox otherwise I’d buy it
A PS4 was $199 on black friday. You don't bite?
Get a PS4, it's more than worth it for the exclusives alone.
Bloodborne II.....I want it.
Hellllll yeah, it will eventually be time to get the ol Ravens nest back together
It would be nice if it was on PC too. I didn't like V that much, but I loved IV: For Answer. My favorite mecha game ever.
I hope its more like PS1/PS2 era AC and nothing like AC5.
I really wonder why there aren't any high budget mecha games, they'd be quick a success I think especially in mp.
Great news. It'll be interesting to see where they take this series. :) Plus I might be the only one, but I'd love to see a new King's Field. I know, I know, the Souls series is a spiritual successor to it, but KF4, while rough around the edges in some areas, was absolutely dripping with atmosphere and was genuinely terrifying in places. As much as I love the Souls formula, I'd jump on KF5 in a heartbeat.
I was waiting for Armored Core. This made my day. I hope the development end up in a great game. Armored Core deserves a good redemption and revival. This genre is most reach the next generation.
one of my fav franchises is returning yess
Just don't let ea get a hold of it!!!
"From Software has good news for you, while asking for a bit of patience." Playstation Experience here we come ;)
The old ones were legendary
I'm still looking forward to the next game in the series, so how do I get that PS4 theme anyway?
You dig giant robots! I dig giant robots! We dig giant robots! Chicks dig giant robots!
Such an underrated cartoon! XD
I hope Patches is in the game!
Loved Armored Core in the Ps1 days I remember playing it on the demo disc that came with with my playstation fun times had fighting force on that disc as well
This better be on Xbox!
