This week’s Famitsu has revealed a new, likely Japanese-only, PlayStation 3 game. The game, based off Macross Frontier the Movie: The False Songstress, is titled Macross Trial Frontier. For those that don’t know, Macross Frontier is a Japanese animation that’s been airing in their country since late 2007. The False Songstress is a movie in the series. (Macross Trial Frontier, PS3)

All they have to do is include subtitles for the movie and they'll triple exports!

Macross.....Is that any relation to ROBOTECH?
Or is it something else?

Macross is the superior source material to robotech. Along with 2 other animes that were spliced together.

Robotech to the rescue!
jk. I know Robotech was the American translated version of the original Macross combined with 2 other random japanese series (poorly I might add) to create 2 additional different seasons.

Damn I sound like a geek.

The original Macross and Macross Frontier were good. I didn't like Macross 7 too much... Hoping the game comes to the US, seeing as it has the movie on the disk.

p.s. I always go for the subbed versions of the anime, most of the time the English translations are horrible, with a few exceptions (Trigun and Cowboy Bebop coming to mind)

Macross Trash 7 was a classic Manga/Anime. I remember teletoon airing the series back in the late 90's.

Macross Plus is the best, I think. I didn't really like the characters all that much in frontier.

I hope this comes to the US

At last!!!!
First macross game in ps3. I hope it'll be good, macross in ps2 (developed by sega AM2) was fun to play. Thanks namcobandai. Now, let's wait for the Ace Combat for ps3, PPPPPPPPLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEEEEEA AAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSEEEE EEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!.

PD: I'm a big fan of macross and robotech (and other mecha series and franchises), to me, both series are great, the thing is they have different stories, points of view, music and audience they targeted (macross for japanese and robotech for USA), so, you can like or hate any of them for subjective reasons.

Make a Robotech movie please.
I used to be a huge Robotech fanboy when I was a kid. I don't remember much about the show since it was so convoluted spanning several "generations" but the mature themes really engaged me as a child. Of course the cool jets and robots were badass too.
smilydude13  +   1826d ago
They've made several Robotech movies. All of them have sucked. If you haven't already, jump ship to Macross.
