While it has been known for some time that the fourth installment in From Software's Armored Core franchise will be appearing on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the timing of its release in Japan was unclear. However, an update posted today on the game's official Web site says the PlayStation 3 version of Armored Core 4 will hit shelves in Japan on December 14, about a month after the PS3 itself.
While the gaming future of Armored Core remains in limbo among vague hints and rumors, manufacturers continue to produce models of its mecha.
Fans of the Armored Core franchise have been waiting for a new game for over six years, but today a new model has been made available for pre-order.

It wasn’t easy to narrow down, but here are our Top 10 FromSoftware bosses."
