What with the success of the latest Macross TV series, Macross Frontier, it's hardly surprising that a game will be released to tie-in with it. That being said, Macross Ace Frontier could be something quite substantial in terms of its content.
Developed by Artdink, who have recently been making a name for themselves with the Gundam Battle series.Presently, the game is at 60% complete. Yet, it's already boasting an impressive roster of playable units (40 Valkyries) from a slew of series and movies (namely; Macross Zero, Macross, Macross Do You Remember Love?, Macross Plus, Macross 7 and Macross Frontier). In addition, there will be 30 characters and over 80 missions. The four player multiplayer from the Gundam Battle games is also present and Macross Ace Frontier will also offer co-op play too. This amount of content pretty much dwarfs SEGA's last effort and even From Software's monolithic Another Century's Episode games and it's only on a handheld!
Macross Ace Frontier will be released later this year in Japan and there is no news of a Western release as yet.
