RECO LOVE BLUE OCEAN / GOLD BEACH

Kadokawa Games and Dingo have announced two new love simulators for the PlayStation Vita produced by Ichiro Sugiyama (Photo Kano): Reco Love: Blue Ocean & Reco Love: Gold Beach. Both versions of the new game share the same characters and setting, but the story developments and events with heroines will differ.

Although all the characters appear in both games, between Blue Ocean and Gold Beach, almost everything is different, from the story to the free event scenarios and “Reco Session” poses. Both games are fully voiced, and between them both there are a total of 40,000+ voice files!

The player-controlled protagonist of the Reco Love is a second-year high school student who attends Mitsumi Academy, a school that consists of every grade from elementary to high school. While attending a two month long summer vacation at “Mitsumi Camp,” he will develop relationships with the various heroines, ultimately resulting in the goal of confessing his love at the Mitsumi Festival on the final day of camp.

In addition to the photography theme found in the likes of Photo Kano, the title will also be expanding towards an overall “video” theme for the love simulator. Through the title’s newly developed “Reco Session” feature, players will be able to shoot a short video of the girls. Reco Love makes use the PS Vita’s motion sensors, treating the handheld like it’s a digital video camera itself.

The videos players record can not only be stored within the game’s albums, but they can also be converted and saved as MP4 files for easy sharing. Since a single video can be recorded for 30 seconds, it seems the design is to promote sharing on social media platforms like Twitter, YouTube, or Niconico.

SABER PENDRAGON DRESS

From the original illustration by Takashi Takeuchi comes a 1/7th scale figure of Saber dressed in the Saber Pendragon dress. Made by the popular toy manufacturer Alter, Saber stands at 23cm tall and is scheduled to release in November 2016.

Saber (or should I say King Arthur) from TYPE-MOON’s Fate series is one of the most well known and beloved character of all time in Japanese anime. Filled with tremendous amount of power and emotions, she never fails to make fans worldwide admire over her strong character. However, she is not perfect. When she is corrupted by Angra Mainyu, she is very different than her usual self and is known as Saber Alter!

Alter made sure to preserve every detail of Saber Alter in her Stage 3 battle sprit in Fate/Grand Order. Although beautiful, her cold gaze looks as if she could make hell freeze over in a matter of seconds! The complex sculpting on her outfit itself proves how much work was put into remaking every layer in her dress into reality. When posed with her sword, you might as well start running away as it looks like it could seriously impact some heavy damage!

This figure is truly a collection piece for any Fate series fan. Take her into battle with you and you can be sure that even the strongest evils will not dare to your adventures!

Iron Man Mark XLVI – Civil War Figure

Hot Toys never fail to disappoint when it comes to making extremely realistic looking action figures. Just when we thought it could not get any better, it definitely does! Releasing between Q2 and Q3 of 2017, the 1/6th scale Iron Man Mark XLVI from Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War will be flying its way around the world for fans to enjoy!

At first we just thought it was an Iron Man suit from the new Captain America movie by Hot Toys which by itself is already pretty awesome, but then we realized it has 28 light-up points throughout the armor! Of course, what good is an Iron Man action figure if it doesn’t come with a detailed likeness head sculpt of Tony Stark? The final prototype is not available yet available, however, we are absolutely certain it will look just like Robert Downey Jr to the dot!

The chest armor plates can even be detached to reveal the inner mechanical design of the Mark XLVI suit. We wouldn’t suggest you to try to temper with it though, you don’t want Iron Man to suddenly fail to light up for you! (In the case that does happens, you might need to send it back to Stark Industries for repair.) The set also include a specially designed debris diorama figure stand to fill more impact on the marvelous Iron Man action figure.

For those of you on Team Iron Man, the set even include a 1/6th scale Captain America helmet as a bonus for posing the Iron Man Mark XLVI victory for the team!

As expected with all Hot Toys collectibles, availability is extremely limited so be sure to reserve yours now!
