Armored Core 4 hitting Europe on PS3 and X360

PS3 in April, X360 TBA.

It may already be out in Japan, but Armored Core 4 won't be with us in time for the PlayStation 3's European launch - with publisher 505 Games today announcing that it's due out on 27th April instead.

Those of you wondering about the Xbox 360 version may have to wait a little longer though, with 505 Games telling Eurogamer that it "is indeed due for release" and that "an announcement will be made about that one in due course". Okay then.

Not to be confused with the PS3's Mobile Suit Gundam: Target in Sight (which is due out on day one), Armored Core 4 is the latest in From Software's "the Japanese love it" mech series.

We found it to be more accessible than its predecessors when we took a look at an import copy, despite offering similarly vast degrees of customisation, and ruled that it's a "pretty simple, superfast, graceful and smart mech-combat game, and it deserves your attention".

In other words, if you only buy one PlayStation 3 mech combat game that's already out in Japan... oh never mind.
