| Another Century's Episode: R, abbreviated as A.C.E.: R, is a mecha action video game developed by From Software and published by Banpresto and Namco-Bandai. It will be released for the PlayStation 3 in August 19, 2010.|
A new dynamic shooting mode called Chase Mode has been added to the game. This mode is similar to arcade shooters wherein the player's machine moves on rails and leaves the targeting weapons for the player to control. Each chase mode section precedes a boss battle; the examples released so far include the battle against the Behemoth from Full Metal Panic! and the battle against Nora Polyansky from Macross Zero. It is currently unknown if the player can change the unit which participates in chase mode.
It has been announced that in addition to charge attacks, a new ability called Burst Attack will be appearing in this installment. Burst attack is available to all units, and is a special charge attack that changes depending on what pilot the player currently have in your machine. There are currently no known examples of new attacks gained by switching pilots yet. On that note, this is the first title in the A.C.E. series that allows to swap pilots between machines.
- It was announced earlier that, with a few exceptions, background music will be Super Robot Wars-style instrumentals.
- Acid Black Cherry will provide the themes for A.C.E.: R. The opening theme is named "Re:Birth". The single will be released on 8/18.
