    This is a thread for all things Armored Core! One of the best mecha game franchises from the now famous From Software, with one of the best soundtracks of all time!


    I figured I would create a thread where all the games could be talked about, both old….. and new.

    Armored Core 6: Leaks, screenshots & everything we know so far - Dexerto
    Rumor: Armored Core 6 details and screenshots leaked via consumer survey - Gematsu

    There have been some leaks, talked about in these videos, that Armored Core 6 is supposedly not only From Software’s next game, but is so far in development it may be announced this year and released in 2023.

    Ever since I put together that Armored Core and Dark Souls were from the same company, I've been wanting them to combine the concepts. I want a souls-style mech game.

    Can't wait to see how Armored Core evolved after all the Soulsborne games.

    Bandai Namco’s last game to be revealed at Tokyo Game Show 2022 is being kept a secret. We know that From Software’s next game is in the final stages of development, and Miyazaki himself has mentioned Armored Core in an interview.


    It’s like the stars are aligning.

    No, because I don't enjoy that type of game play. I'm perfectly happy for you to have a new game in the series, but the idea that someone can't be a fan unless they play every game a developer puts out is just silly.

    Thats not what I meant at all. That was a stab at the people who claim the world’s biggest Fromsoft fans but can’t even fucking tell you who made Armored Core if asked.

    I’m not trying to gatekeep. If AC isn’t your thing thats alright. It’s just the people who make being a Fromsoft fan a part of their indentity but then are completly unaware of one of their most amazing series, not because of a lack of interest in the genre, but because they are just ignorant. It just really pisses me off because a thing I love is often timed overlooked, and I do wish more people would discover AC and learn how amazing it can be.

    “superfans”, basically.

    They were making games for a decade before the first Armored Core game was made. Their OG franchise was Kingsfield, which was more like a first person souls game mixed with a dungeon crawler. Combined with Enchanted Arms, Evergrace, Lost Kingdom, etc and the company is definitely more of an RPG developer than anything else. Fans not knowing about AC would be more like a TF fan not caring about BW. It'd be odd, but not outrageous.

    Oh yeah, I know about Kingsfield, my rant was geared more towards AC because I love it though.


    For the record. When I made the initial comment I didn’t think much of it, as those people are mostly in the minority of things, and then when I saw your reply I had already taken my sleep medicine which is why I basically repeated the same thing for 4 paragraphs. :lol  Sorry for that. But, I do still stand by what I said. I suppose it just irks me as a fan of something I consider amazing when I see “superfans”(I probably should have been using that term to avoid making it look like I was gatekeeping), who claim to be superfans of Fromsoft but know nothing of their past games. Thats okay, but IMO if you consider yourself a super fan of something you should know about it. But enough of that. I didn’t mean my original comment as something to take seriously.


    ARMORED CORE IS BACK! It’s time to celebrate!

    The whole reason I came in was to find out who Kevin was and what it had to do with Fromsoft.

    Oh :lol  That link was supposed to be Batman trailer from the new Suicide Squad game. It’s one of Kevin Conroy’s last performances as Batman. I guess since it was late last night I got the links switched up and didn’t realize it. I’ll go fix it now.
