The evolution of Alteisen

With the release of the first PV for OG2, I couldn’t help but write this blog entry. The feeling is like falling in love all over again, and it’s already the 3rd time. Banpresto has released the first PV for OG2. It is really short and not as exciting as their usual full length PV’s, but one thing caught my attention and captured my heart and I really thank them for doing so. Towards the end of the PV they showed off Alteisen’s trademark move – “The Revolver Bunker” as a final teaser. Alteisen being my favourite robot, it’s not hard to see why I would be this excited over it.

So having said that, I will show you the history of Alteisen, from the very beginnings of my first love all the way to the current PV that has won my heart all over =)

First Love – Alteisen Riese from SRW Impact, the very first appearance of Alteisen. From nearly 10 years ago I instantly knew this was gona be one of my favourite robots of all time. From the extremely detailed design to having the entire aresenal of weapons and cool looking moves, not to mention the music, I thought his performance was simply jaw dropping. Indeed, back then this sort of graphics was incredible.

Second Love – Alteisen Riese from SRW OGs, the 2nd major appearance of Alteisen. I have lost count how many times I have used the Revolver Bunker in the game, watched it on youtube and even, watching it on my computer. I was extremely excited that the revolver bunker finishes with a Dynamic Kill (meaning they explode during the attack as oppose to after it). Graphics wise, a major major improvement from Impact. Simply awesomeness.

Third Love – Alteisen Riese featured in SRW OG2 promo Video, the 3rd and latest major appearance of Alteisen. Do you finally understand why my excitment is off the charts? Damn! Banpresto just had to tease me this way! using Alteisens Revolver Bunker as the final scene to end the PV, It’s simply out of this world! Look at how beautiful it looks, with the camera panning and revolving all around him, sometimes you really forget you’re watching a 2D animation. 9 years later from his first appearance, he has come a long way, it really has been an incredible journey =).
