That would be fucking awesome. Also, as I understand it they want to empathise in the movie that aerial combat isn't a matter of standing still to fire then moving around a bit before stopping to fire again. I hope they pull it off... not sure about the changes to the devices though, I kind of liked the original design, sure it could be touched up a bit with better animation, but I liked the pink on it in the way it reminded you Nanoha's idea of a weapon back then basically came down to ripping off whatever magic girl anime she saw around her age. It's looks more like a actual weapon now with less pink, the head of it looks perfect, but it's the blue bit which seems a bit off.
Also, Bardiche is female now, and less angular. I kind of liked it the way it was, like a nerf axe Fate imagined.
