It's not my video

Thanks buddy. My interest in this has Sky rocketed!

This game looks crazy fun.

I cant believed people say this game looks bad/boring, is one of my hightlights along FE and of course, Smash.

Also, giant mecha amiibo when?

It's Macross (not Macros)… what the west knows as the first part of Robotech.

Kawamori and Kozaki sounds like a great team to me. Looking forward to it.
