Okay, this is kind of half-news. Long time Medarot/Medabots artist Horumarin shared on the official Japanese Medarot blog something we’ve all been waiting for, new news on the Medarot 3D project! He unveiled a new character design! Remember when I said this was a case of half news? Well, this character design was rejected by the development team, haha. This proposed design is for a character named “Black Bass”, whom Horumarin described as “An old black bass that has escaped many a fisherman, covered in the lures from their failed attempts”.
While it’s not the biggest piece of news Medabots/Medarot fans have been hoping for, the fact that the game is clearly making some headway in development (including the recent Famitsu listing for a 2012 release) is quite a good thing!
