One of the better recent anime adaptations is getting a sequel. Famitsu reports that Macross Ace Frontier, released last year as a Japanese exclusive for the PSP, will be followed up later this year by Macross Ultimate Frontier. PSP is once again the game's target platform.
Ultimate Frontier promises to retain the basics of its predecessor as far as gameplay goes, but Namco Bandai is adding in a new Missile Alert system, which tells you when you're about to be on the receiving end of one of the series' trademark missile storms. Another new feature for the game is the Support Character System, which sees heroines from the Macross series appear along side you in battle.
For Macross fans, this looks like it could be the ultimate title. In addition to the original Macross, the title will feature elements and scenes from Do You Remember Love, Flash Back 2012, Macross Plus, Macross 7, Macross Dynamite 7, Macross Frontier, and Macross Zero. New characters for Ultimate Frontier include Lynn Minmay and Roy Focker.
Ultimate Frontier is currently 70% complete and will see Japanese release in 2009. Given the quality of the original, we're looking forward to a quality product. The only question is if Namco Bandai can come up with a way of sharing the game with the whole world this time.
