    - Red's mech is the Dahak-AZ103
    - most exploring of towns and dungeons is done while riding Dahak

    - Red will have to go into some areas on foot
    - Red can break objects, climb ladders, control switches, swim, and battle enemies with gun/sword

    For the record, this is apparently the project that was first talked about here- http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=159722

    Long development much? Anyways, looks fun, although i imagine some people will be disappointed that it's not a .hack game or whatever.

    Cool it looks like a nice game pretty sure ive seen parts of that one robot on a anime movie Castle in the Sky, hopefully it'll port to other countries unlike with Choushoujuu Mecha MG which should have been.

    If the customization is high this game will be fun.

    I'm fine with dog but cats are better.

    I kind of posted this last night but oh well...

    Though I'm not sure if I want this or not. Doesn't really seem that appealing to me at all.

    "...epic human drama..."

    You wouldn't know it from those screenshots.

    So, basically, they're making a Star Fox RPG, since Nintendo's too busy to give a flyin' flip?

    Probably being lazy.
    This game sounds extremely promising.

    I will be on the watchout for it's release. It seems charming and yet also action-oriented, but with RPG elements. Everything I like rolled up into one game.

    the only troublesome thing i can see here is AP but some companies (esp new ones) tend not to keep any AP on their games and i hope to see the same here
