Really? 4vs4? Wi-Fi or Local?

Local single cart

Battle mode is free for all (Kakuto Densetsu style I hope)

Match mode seems like 1 on 1, but there aren't explicit details about that aspect of multiplayer.

Developed by everyone's favorite, Arc system works.


Edit: It appears you can go as far as to make your own team.

Control a helicopter and do stuff like picking up cans...

Another game by Arc System works, developed by Sonic Powered

Who is doing the Kunio Dodgeball game? Wasn't the original from Tecmo?

Kay, just check it's actually Technos. Who bought them though? Heard they went bankrupt sometime ago.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technos_Japan_Corporation
Meanwhile, Kunio Taki started work at Million, a Japan shop net. A few years after the Technos bankruptcy, the company's assets were acquired by "Million Corp.", a company founded by Kunio Taki and former staff members of Technos. They have recently developed enhanced remakes of games from the defunct company, the first being 2001's Super Dodgeball Advance for Game Boy Advance, based on Super Dodge Ball. The games by Million Corporation are published by Atlus Games, Inc.
Hopefully Atlus will bring this over as well.

Mmm, Gundam Battle Chronicle PSP looks like it was unveiled in this issue (so 2-4 page scans?):
http://gmstar.com/psp/gundambattlechro.html

I can't translate the new gundams included but there seems to be 1.5 times more stages than the previous game, with space and underwater stages too.

God of War II is brought by Capcom, sometimes I think SCEJ doesn't really learn...
Looks like more gundams unveiled for ACE3 too...

And it doesn't look like there is much more in this issue...
