News: Wing Gundam Zero to be added to Gundam Versus Extreme Full Boost

The XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero will be officially released on December 18 in Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost arcade machines all over Japan.  Last seen in Gundam VS Gundam Next Plus, Heero Yuy gets his second mobile suit with a unit cost of 3000. In order to differentiate it from its XXXG-00W0 Wing Zero Custom variant, Wing Zero appears to be more versatile in both close and long range combat. It also utilizes the Zero System which cuts enemy tracking during while activated.  From first glance, this unit looks to be a great addition to the already diverse cast of Full Boost. Here’s to hoping we might see its inclusion as DLC for the PS3 version of Gundam Extreme Versus in the near future. Check out the Wing Zero in action below!

News: New Mobile Suits Added to Gundam Extreme Versus and Full Boost

Posted on : 28-11-2012 | By : | In : News, Videos

The Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost website has been updated with a plethora of new mobile suits. Aside from the RX-105 Xi Gundam and the XXXG-00W0 Wing Gundam Zero, whom were previously announced, a total of five new units have been officially added to the foray. They are the YAMS-132 Rozen Zulu from Gundam Unicorn, MBF-P01-Re Astray Gold Frame Amatsu from Gundam Seed Astray, Mashymre Cello’s AMX-011S Zaku III Custom from Gundam ZZ, GN-007 Arios Gundam from Gundam 00 and the GP-03 Gundam Dendrobium (pictured above) from 0083 Stardust Memory, which was last  playable in Gundam VS Gundam Next Plus.

This coincides with the recent Full Boost mobile site leak, where even more new mobile suits are shown, including some previously mentioned. Those units are the following: XM-X3 Crossbone Gundam X-3, ZGMF-X88S Gaia Gundam, G-Armor, AMX-109 Corin Nander’s Kapool, AGX-04 Gerbera Tetra, RGM-79FC Striker Custom, and Gundam AGE-1. While not visible, the MSA-0011 S Gundam also appears to be in as well as text mentions the ALICE system that resides in the S Gundam that was featured in Gundam Sentinel.

There’s also a little surprise for Gundam Extreme Versus players out there on the PS3. “The Best” re-release will be accompanied by new DLC units on December 13th. The two units are the Xi Gundam and GP-03 Gundam Dendrobium and they will go for 500 yen each. There is also a special six pack DLC for 2,000 yen that includes the previous 6 DLC units. Hopefully Namco Bandai will continue to fill in the long void between now and the probable console release of Full Boost with more unit DLC for console players. As a huge Gundam Extreme Versus player myself, I am definitely looking forward to jumping online with these two new mobile suits.

Check the video below to see the new PS3 additions in action. If you look closely, the footage for Xi Gundam is the same as the recent Full Boost character reveal as well.

Looks like Heero Yuy is the latest pilot in Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost to have two units in the game. The TV version of Wing Gundam Zero is the next playable mobile suit to be unlocked in December as a 3000 cost unit.  The last time we saw a playable Wing Zero in the Gundam Versus series was in Gundam vs Gundam Next Plus.  It will be interesting to see what new tricks are added to Heero’s new suit considering Wing Zero Custom has taken some of its moves from the Next Plus iteration of Wing Zero.

New bosses such as Big Zam and a new form of Extreme Gundam and the Sanc Kingdom map will also be included in the game’s next update.

News: Evangelion 3.0 Breaks Japanese 2012 Box Office Records

Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo has broken Japanese 2012 box office records since being released last week on November 16. The third installment of the Rebuild of Evangelion has brought in $13.9 million in its opening two days, claiming the title of the biggest opening weekend in Japanese cinema this year. The title is expected to surpass the earnings of the other two titles with 1.0 earning $25 million in 2007, and 2.0 earning $50 million in 2009.

Evangelion 1.0 and 2.0 were previously featured in Super Robot Wars L. Perhaps we might get some of the newer units and storyline from 3.0 in a future Super Robot Wars sequel. Still no official word as to when 3.0 will be released in the West.

News: Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost Most Popular Arcade Game In Japan

In the December 2012 issue of Arcadia Magazine, listing its most recent top ten most popular arcade games, Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost finds its way to the top of the list (with Under Night In-Birth and the new Guilty Gear arcade revision rounding out the top three). Amusement Journal also lists Full Boost as the highest earning small cabinet arcade game for the period of late August to early September 2012.

The Gundam Extreme Versus series is no stranger to steady popularity as the first iteration of Extreme Versus was arguably the most popular Japanese arcade game in 2011. Earlier in the year, the April edition of Arcadia Magazine listed Full Boost in second place behind Persona 4 U. With the RX-105 Xi Gundam from Hathaway’s Flash listed as the next unit unlock and still many more to follow (AMX-109 Kapool Corin Nander Custom from the intro for example), Full Boost looks to have a steady reign over the Japanese arcades until the end of the year. Here’s to hoping we hear of a console version soon.
