I haven't looked at any of it myself (will be later), so I'm not entirely sure if any of it is new info or not.

The video has new footage, but no new info...and the articles don't really have any new info either.

All I want to know is...will there be offline Multiplayer? Because there's no reason there shouldn't be...no reason for splitscreen since it's turn based...hell, you wouldn't even technically need two controllers, just do it like SD Gundam and set all players to one controller then just pass it around.

Supposedly it's just a cutscene based on how well made your craft are...think Mass Effect 2 when you went through the relay depending on your upgrades what would happen...least that's how I see it going.

They talked about in in a developer interview...they said it was only going to last about like 15-20 seconds and be like a cutscene based on your upgrades.

It's in one of the longer interviews on Gametrailers, but I don't remember which one and I'm not going to watch that much video again to find out.
