Videos: Gundam Versus To Add New 3v3 Mode
As we get closer to Gundam Versus' release on July 6, Bandai Namco have provided a new video showcasing gameplay and new game modes! The biggest takeaway from the video...
Bandai Namco has been pretty busy today announcing Gundam titles for the 30th Anniversary, this time with SD G Generation Genesis for the Playstation 4, Playstation 3, and Vita. The most recent G Generation game was released on mobile, so this will please those who were hoping for a more console-centric version. Not much has been announced aside from a general release date in 2016, but it will be interesting to see if they go with either a sprite-based or 3d visual route. Until we find out more, check out the trailer below!
Gundam Breaker 3 has been announced today as one of the two Gundam 30th Anniversay games to be released in 2016 alongside SD G Generation Genesis. In the teaser video, we see a souped up RX-78-02 Gundam get blasted by the SD Knight Gundam. The promo image above also shows Gundam Barbatos Fourth Form from Iron Blooded Orphans as well. Aside from having SD Gundams in the mix, the customization and graphics look to be nicely updated in comparison to the previous titles, as this will be also running on the Playstation 4. Vita fans should not worry as the game will also be released on the mobile console as well. Perhaps we’ll even see playable Perfect Grade suits in this sequel, too! Until we find out more, check out the teaser vid below.
Bandai Namco have just released a new video showcasing Gundam Barbatos 4th Form from Gundam Extreme Versus Force. This version of Barbatos is very melee centric using both its mace and katana as the primary weapons. While it has some long range options such as its bazooka and mace throw that stuns, prepare to primarily be in your enemy’s face to do your damage. Remember, this unit is a first edition bonus so make sure you buy the game early! Hopefully we’ll see a video of the First Form Barbatos that comes with the Iron Blooded Orphans Blu-Ray as well. Until then, check out the gameplay below!
The upcoming PS4 port for Assault Suit Leynos is released finally on December 23rd. We’ve already had two demos of the game and from what I have played neither were very impressive. While I think Dracue are great, as Gunhound was fun, I am not sure they will do a good job on something more high end like this. The new trailer (shown below) does try and sell the game as best it can but even then this looks pretty wonky. Whether it will be as bad as the PS2 port of Valken remains to be seen but I am not holding out hope that this will be any good.
Bandai Namco have released a new 14 minute PV for Gundam Extreme Versus Force. This time they showcases many of the playable mobile suits from the different Gundam series and accompanied by their respective soundtracks. We also get to see more of the new units in action, such as the pack switching from the G-Self and 4th Form Barbatos using the katana. As the game is said to have around 80 playable units, here’s to hoping we see more brand new ones like the Gouf Ignited. The PV also showed off the ability to have mobile armors in your team as well. Hopefully they’ll be actually playable in some form. The game is coming out in a couple weeks in Japan, but as always we’ll keep you updated as much as possible. Until then, check out the PV below!
A number of new and returning mobile suits have been announced to join the Gundam Extreme Versus Force roster. The first one is Heine Westenfluss’ Destiny Gundam, a variant suit from Gundam Seed Destiny. This is a first print bonus that will be available at the Japanese version’s launch on December 23, 2015. As T.M. Revolution is the VA for Heine Westenfluss and is also providing the title track to the game, it’s no surprise Bandai Namco would have more in store for the popular artist in-game. Other suits recently added to the roster are Char’s Gelgoog, Quebeley, and V2 Gundam. There’s still plenty of suits to be announced and we’ll keep you updated on what’s is coming up next. Until then, check out the video below to see the new Destiny Gundam in action!
Following the announcement for the PS4 VR game Rigs, we now have an updated gameplay promo video to look at (shown below). Despite the somewhat pretentious slow motion cuts used in the new trailer, the game looks good. I got to briefly see it at this year’s Tokyo Game Show and it’s a competent game and should work well once it is out in the wild. Still no details on when that will be though but thus far I am hopeful that this will be actually decent.
Looks like another Gundam AGE unit is added to the ever growing Gundam Extreme Versus Maxi Boost roster. This time it’s Gundam Legilis, a 3000 cost unit that can put out a lot of pressure with its usage of the Legilis bits and its speed. It’s interesting this was released before AGE-3. And although I would have liked to see it in its red incarnation, there’s already the Zeydra that’s also piloted by Zehart Galette. Check out the video below to see it in action!
Bandai Namco have recently released a brand new mobile RPG called Super Gundam Royale. Developed by DeNA of FF Record Keeper fame and a sequel to the original Gundam Royale on mobile, Super Gundam Royale lets you build teams of mobile suits from different Gundam series and fight in loads of familiar scenarios from the shows. As this is an F2P, there is a stamina system on top of the gatcha where you either spend gems that are collected from the quests and bonuses or you spend your hard earned money. With an art style that evokes the G Generation games, this is looking to be a very addictive mobile game if you’re already into the gatcha style that Japanese mobile games are well known for. You can download it from the Japanese iOS or Google Play store for your device. Check out the Super PV below, narrated by Noboyuki Hiyama a.k.a. Shiro Amada from the 08th M.S. Team.
Bandai Namco have uploaded a new PV showcasing the different modes found in Gundam Extreme Versus Force for the Playstation Vita. While we know what to expect from the 2v2 fighting that is a staple of the Gundam Versus series, this promo highlights new gameplay mechanics tied to the Force System in the single player mode. You can call for ordinance attacks with your chosen ships and restore stats via the Force Points you gain from defeating enemies and capturing bases. With Ad-Hoc mode, you can not only do the normal 2v2 versus, but you can play in squad battles and base capturing as well.
On the new mobile suit front, Heine’s Gouf Ignited from Gundam Seed Destiny has joined the roster as TM Revolution is performing the main theme song for the game (who also is the seiyuu of Heine Westenfluss). Gundam Barbatos fourth form is a first print DLC when you purchase the game, whereas Gundam Barbatos first form can be attained when you purchase the first Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans Blu-Ray. Gundam Mk-II Titans version is also shown as playable, which makes us wonder what other mobile suits from the Extreme Versus roster will show up. If you happen to play the UC Card Builder game, you’ll also get an RX-78 card for it as well with the purchase of the game. Until more info appears before the December release, check out the video below.
