The Trial for Gundam Assault Survive was avaliable last night on the JP PSN and later tonight via this link. Link Choose the middle option tonight if you don't have a Japanese PSN. That's not all, I have the demo and here's my impressions and facts on the game so far (may contain spoilers however the spoilers are essential for those with no Japanese knowledge) Warning: Spoilers inside! Character Creation -You name your character -Pick an expression template -Pick a hairstyle template -Then you answer 7 questions (in Japanese) which determine your stats, they are simple questions of values, morals, and such) -After your 7 questions are answered you get the stat totals of your character and any initial special abilities based on choices -You may get an extra unit (I have the V2 at the start) -24 characters can be created Controls The controls are the same as Battle Universe with two changes: 1. To enter another area you lock on to a certain letter block with L+R (type A) or L+O (Type B) and fly into the block and you'll be in the area desired and you can fly into any area at anytime during a mission enabling free movement. 2. Some non transforming units have a high speed flight mode and if you do the combination for transformation you can have atmospheric flight and you have full use of all weapons in this mode. Other Changes -A First person mode and a third person mode that can be used in battle (to change modes press start and choose mode (second option) to change perspective), if you like the Gundam Side Story 1-3, and 0079 FPS concept you can play the game this way and if you like a more Armored Core style 3rd person mode you'll be happy as well. -Point system replaced by the TP system (serves the same purpose for tuning weapons and MS) -Extra parts such as external boosters and extra armor are available -Tuning and extra parts cost Gold and you get Gold at the end of any battle (even after failure) Situation (Missions) -Up to 3 units can be used in battle -Defeating the leader units results in quick completion -There are motherships, bases, and carriers that can repair your armor (most are anime based but some can be as simple as a truck), you need to protect these especially in Seed and 00 story modes when missions can be long. -You can issue commands to your teammates to perform commands such as defend and most importantly repair at the designated area. -You can revive downed teammates if far away from the designated repair area.
