Climax Heroes Fourze Update: Tag-Team Supreme!

Following the Tokyo Game Show 2011 last week, Namco Bandai posted comments on their new tag-team system on their official blog for the Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze. Here are three of those features mentioned in said blog:

  • You can swap characters freely without consuming Gauge.
  • You can call your assist to do combined attacks. For example, if you choose Faiz Blaster and Hyper Kabuto both of them can do a powerful missile attack. This consumes Rider Gauge.
  • When it’s two-on-two on screen, you can swap between characters letting the CPU control the other one.

The game comes out this winter for the PSP and Nintendo Wii for 5981 yen.

Climax Heroes Fourze Cover Art Revealed: Riders on Parade!

Here’s the cover art for the upcoming Climax Heroes installment Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze. The game itself comes out December 2011 for 5891 yen.

What I would like to know is, why did they go with two different covers for the different versions of the game? Why not just stick with one or another? Anyway, what I really want to know is, which is your favorite? Do you prefer the PSP version’s cover art, or the Wii’s? From an artistic POV, I prefer the PSP version more, though from a marketing perspective, the Wii’s version get’s the point of the game across slightly better. What do you think?

Kamen Rider OOO PuToTyra Combo confirmed for Climax Heroes Fourze: Isn’t that character a bit of a dinosaur at this point? :P (I joke)

Will we ever run out of OOO fanart? Probably not.

It’s been confirmed through the Japanese edition of Playstation Magazine that the OOO PuToTyra combo will appear in the upcoming PSP game Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze.

In the previous game Climax Heroes OOO, Kamen Rider OOO could only use his first three combos (excluding TaToBa, which is his primary combo), from GataKiriBa to SaGoZo. But with this new expansion to the game, OOO will have all of his in-show Combos, which also includes TaJaDoru and ShaUTa. For a look at the issue of Playstation Magazine this story came from, check out the video below:

It’s very informative, if you speak Japanese.

Kamen Rider Climax Heroes Fourze will be released for PSP and Nintendo Wii this Winter. Price is still TBA.

Yes, we have pics from a wide assortment of new and old characters (to the game, that is), including a number of updated characters and forms. Here, we have OOO TaJaDoru going up against Kamen Rider Knight, firing a very big attack at him. But Knight looks poised to defend himself. What will happen next?! Who knows, because the next screen shot is completely unrelated!

Here’s Fourze using his LauncherModule against Punch Hopper. Among the new characters and features, Fourzes Base States and Base Modules have also been added to the game. Can’t really include him in the game without those, can you?

And finally, here’s six other pics, showing the new Showa characters, and the 2-on-2 battle gameplay:
