Namco Bandai and From Software have settled on a release date for Armored Core V. In the United States, the big day is March 20; in Europe, the game hits shelves on March 23.

As someone who has always valued developers' efforts to make multiplayer a full-on war, not merely a series of unrelated battles, the persistent online mode and focus on teamwork sounds intriguing.

Bu pre-ordering Armored Core V at GameStop, you'll get the "Heavy Assault Pack," which "will help give players a competitive advantage on day one" with extra weapons and parts. Uh, yeah. Truth be told, I'm far more curious about the skeleton and ninja downloadable content.
