Namco Bandai Games America has announced that Armored Core: Verdict Day will land on North American shores this upcoming summer for the PlayStation 3.
Developed by FromSoftware, Verdict Day is the latest entry in the Armored Core mech franchise and a direct continuation of Armored Core V. Players will even be able to transfer their save files from ACV to Verdict Day to further customize their Armored Core mechs with new parts and weapons. The Operator Mode, which allows commanding up to 20 mechs from a top-down view, makes a return in Verdict Day as well.
Multiplayer and single player campaign modes are included. The story finds the world "thrown into chaos" with "important natural resources needed for the survival of competing factions" that are "scavenged and fought across the world with deadly Armored Core mechs."
Stay tuned to PSU for additional news on the future of Armored Core.
