Robotech is hopeless to make its own new video game. May be it can do collaboration with WOWS.

Last i heard the company that has the license; Harmony Gold refuses to sell the IP or do anything further with it.

Its a shame. I grew up with that show.

I hate anime captains, but I’d take a Minmei one: when you get a dev strike “stage lights flashing, the feelings smashing....”

I just did a quick wiki check on Robotech.  US Harmony Gold has renewed the license with the original creator for another 35 years. So long, Robotech America.

Harmony Gold is a bane of existence. They're the reason why later Macross shows were never localized in the west. :Smile-angry:

No offense to anyone who liked Robotech, but let's face it: it's made up of three different and unrelated sci-fi anime shows combined into one series through a magic of editing. Okay, so maybe it does have its charm, but that doesn't make it right for Harmony Gold to hamper down a series that actually belongs to somebody else, simply because they hold the license. It's not like HG is localizing the later Macross shows themselves either, rather they're just sitting on the license doing nothing.

But of course HG can't localize the Macross series; it would ruin their own Robotech series. The two has gone a totally separate ways, and it'd be look bad on Robotech.

As long as HG holds the license for the Macross series, I shall continue to curse them. :Smile-angry:

Hood is doing her rapid fires but the website profile is too small to show the whole thing.

I was a fan of the Jack McKinney novels which blended the different series very well. Apparently, a lot of fans don’t like the novels, oh well.
 

Very much agree on the Harmony Gold thing, though.  They also did a Harlock mashup that I saw a couple times, then it seems to have disappeared from existence.

I would also opt for BattleTech, but no boats there.

I read Jack McKinney's Sentinel years ago. The bookstore where I bought the book had gone out of business after Internet and digital prints became popular. We were taking such bookstores for granted. It was full of books from top to bottom (two floors) and from front to back.

Of course, the mecha designer didn’t do anything like, say, use the F-14 as inspiration or anything...

Considering they put Fury in WoT I'm surprised we didn't get USS Keeling (Greyhound) in game as a premium DD :cap_haloween:

The sad part is in its Japanese birthplace, there have been a lot of Macross games.  But because of Harmony Gold, we never saw that here in the United States.  We didn't even get the 1984 movie "Macross:  Do You Remember Love?" brought over to the US.  You had to rely on shady, low quality bootleg DVDs in the early 2000s.

 

Some examples of old Macross games that never made it to US shores because of Harmony Gold licensing issues outside of Japan.  In particular the 2010 and beyond games starting at 23:30 in the video, showing off more of the VF combat that we got familiar with from the shows.

I would be up for a Macross collab but screw Robotech, Harmony Gold can go die in a fire.
