Kamen Rider Fourze Update: Episode Rumors and Secret Game Character

How do you like the henshin pose?

Anyway, we have two big stories about Fourze out, the first about rumored first episode summaries, the other about Fourze as a secret character in the All Kamen Rider Generation NDS game. Let’s jump to it.

First, we have some rumored summaries for the first three episodes of Kamen Rider Fourze. Let’s see what we can expect from this new series:

Episode 1: Youth Switch On!
One day, an unthinkable bad boy transfers to Amanogawa High School. He aims to befriend every single student attending to the school. But the school is filled with weird people and this task is harder than it seems. He’s suddenly called out by his classmate, Kengo Utahoshi.

Episode 2: I’m Kamen Rider!
After Gentaro saved Kengo, he entrusts the Astro Switches to Gentaro. A girl by the name of Yuuki Joujima catches a glimpse of Gentaro fighting as Fourze. Later, Gentaro is taken to outer space.

Episode 3: Let’s Fly, Launcher!
Gentaro creates the Kamen Rider club. However, Kamen Rider Fourze itself is supposed to be a secret. Thus he’s not even allowed to say that Fourze is a Kamen Rider. Gentaro who’s not happy about that decides to hold an assembly in front of the whole school to spread the word of his club. A mysterious man holding a switch was seen standing in the corner of the gym.

I expect that there’s some action going on in these episodes that hasn’t made itself prevalent yet. More on this as we get closer to the premiere of the series.

But something we do have a good deal of info on is our next story!

With yesterday’s release of the Nintendo DS game, All Kamen Rider: Rider Generation, we have learned that Kamen Rider Fourze is infact an unlockable character in the game.

From what we’ve been able to gather from the in-game footage that’s been released (below), it seems that he does have some special attacks through his four main Modules, which do have the module sounds, but he has no finisher, and no fighting abilities beyond the basic controls (i.e., no special skills or special combos). Rake a look at the video below, which features Fourze with OOO:

For anyone who has a copy of the game, or is interested in purchasing one, and would like to unlock the character the character, the password is: X2F8-4V75-563H-7833.

There are also rumors the Kamen Rider New DEN-O will also be an unlockable character, though nothing has come out to confirm it.

Kamen Rider Fourze premieres September 4th, while the All Kamen Rider Game is currently available. Limited editions of the game featuring 28 slip-on covers for the game are also available.

That’s it for Fourze news at the moment. If anything else pops up, I’ll be sure to let you know.

Parts of Life Size Gundam to return to Tokyo.

The official website of the Gundam anime franchise recently announced that parts of the life-size RX-78-2 Gundam model will return to Tokyo for the “Odaiba Gundam Project 2011”.

The “Odaiba Gundam Project 2011” is a special event that will run from August 13-21. Organizers have noted that attendees will be able to get up close to features of the disassembled statue that they could not see or interact with when the statue was fully assembled, standing at 18 m (about 59 ft) tall, in 2009. In addition, visitors will be able to touch and even sit on the Gundam’s right hand. Photo opp!

The event will be held at Symbol Promenade Park on Odaiba, Tokyo’s artificial island. It’s free to preschoolers, and 500 yen for children and adults. Part of the proceeds from the event will benefit charities for victims of the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake disaster.
