Robots blasting each other to bits? Sounds like Armored Core, right? Yeah, sure. But Sega took care of our Transformers fix when this dropped in the arcades. Fighting games were a dime a dozen back in the day, but this one stood out among the also-ran's. One big battlefield, two robo-battler's and plenty of carnage. It was a recipe for greatness cooked up by Virtual On.
Since fighting games are back in the forefront these days, how about a new entry in this robotic beat-down series. We imagine a Zone of the Enders-style anime entry with our favorite bots and plenty of new weapons. Give us some four-player battles too, Sega.
Damn, this sounds fun!
