The fans are impressed by the customization options of Armored Core 6, which allow them to experiment with various strategies and aesthetics for their mechas.
A player showcased their creative design by basing their mecha on Nintendo's Kirby and attaching a sticker of Kirby's face to its chest.
Some fans joked that Armored Core 6 was a sequel to Kirby: Planet Robobot, while others expressed interest in obtaining the code to replicate the Kirby design on their mechas.
The players of FromSoftware's recently released Armored Core 6 are already showcasing their creativity in constructing their mechas, with one of them drawing inspiration from Nintendo's pink superstar, Kirby. This new entry in the franchise is the first in over a decade, and both the fans and critics have responded positively to Armored Core 6. While it is a significantly different game compared to the Souls-like titles that the studio has been known for in recent years, the latest Armored Core demonstrates the developers' impressive revitalization of the series.
One of the major strengths praised by fans and critics is the level of customization. While not being a Souls-like title in any way, Armored Core 6 embodies the spirit of the Souls games by allowing players to experiment with various options. If a particular configuration doesn't work, the game enables players to try again and experiment with a different strategy or equipment. In addition to the mechanical aspects, players have also delved deeply into customizing the aesthetics of their robots, with one player showcasing a robot based on Kirby.
This image was shared by the Japanese Twitter user oyaji93, who showcased the design of one of their mechas in pink and red. The screenshot revealed that one of their mechs had a sticker featuring Kirby's face on its chest. This is attributed to the sticker system in Armored Core 6, where players can adorn their robots with custom designs that can be placed anywhere. Stickers can be shared using a unique share ID, and the PC version allows players to upload and use their own images.
The caption of the tweet roughly states that this would be the result if Kirby inhaled one of the Armored Cores, which caused laughter among many users. Some fans were particularly reminded of Kirby's previous adventure with a giant robot in the exclusive 3DS game Kirby: Planet Robobot. In that game, Kirby controlled his own mech suit, granting him the ability to utilize more powerful versions of his traditional copy abilities and face a completely new threat posed by robot-like aliens.
Some fans made jokes about Armored Core 6 actually being a sequel to Kirby: Planet Robobot, as it wouldn't be far-fetched considering the past archenemies that threatened Planet Popstar. Other players requested the code from oyaji93, as they also wanted to create their own Armored Cores and attach Kirby's face to them. This is just one of many ways fans can enhance their robots and give them a unique appearance.
Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
