posted on by Egan Loo
Namco Bandai Games began streaming the anime version of the full promotional video for the PlayStation 3 game Macross 30: Ginga o Tsunagu Utagoe game for the PlayStation 3. The video highlights the three decades (five decades within the story world) of pilots and singers who come together in the story.
The brand-new story of this 30th-anniversary Macross title is set in 2060, 50 years after the Space War I conflict seen in the first Macross series and one year after the Vajra War seen in Macross Frontier. Above the planet Ouroboros in the far reaches of the galaxy, S.M.S. pilot Rion Sagaki (voiced by Miyu Irino) is suddenly attacked by an unknown enemy and shot down in his transformable variable fighter VF-25. There, he is rescued by the heroine Aisha Blanchett (Marina Inoue), the young Zentradi head of S.M.S.'s branch on Ouroboros.
Due to the intermittent space-fold faults known as "Ouroboros Aurora," Rion cannot immediately return home. He joins Aisha in investigating the planet's ruins, and while on an underground survey there, the two discover a sleeping girl named Miina Forte (Miss Macross 30 contest winner Haruka Chisuga). Miina is key to an incident that bring pilots and singers from various generations to this planet.
The game will arrive in Japan next Thursday in standard and limited first editions, and both have about 113 minutes of voice actor interviews, as well as the in-game CG movies "Burning Fire" and "Get it on-Flying Rock" from the earlier Macross Ultimate Frontier and Macross Triangle Frontier games.
