Mecha Damashii New Spirit of Hot Robot Burning Sun, 11 Feb 2018 14:43:16 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Videos: Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS 2 Announced For 2018 Sun, 11 Feb 2018 14:43:16 +0000

Bandai Namco have recently announced that Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS 2 will be hitting arcades in 2018. Unlike Gundam Versus, this is being positioned as a true sequel to the Extreme VS franchise which started in 2018. We can only assume this will continue the crazy manga-based story of jumping between Gundam timelines and universes to stop some wacky AI that threatens to destroy everything. And as to be expected from previously released Extreme VS titles like Maxi Boost and Maxi Boost ON, it probably will not head to the console space any time soon.

As always, we’ll let you know when more is announced! Until then, check out the teaser video below and let us know what you think!

Videos: Build Strike Gundam, Farsia, Gundam Pixie, and Efreet Schneid Coming To Gundam Versus Tue, 16 Jan 2018 23:43:24 +0000

Several new DLC units have been announced during the Gundam Games Announcement stream on January 16. Aside from revealing God and Master Gundam gameplay, we saw Missing Link units Gundam Pixie and Efreet Schneid, Farsia from Gundam Age, and a fan favorite in Build Strike Gundam Full Package from Gundam Build Fighters. We were also given proper release dates for the units below, including a separate G Sound DLC package for those that did not buy the Premium G Sound Edition:

  • Jan. 23: God Gundam, Master Gundam, G Sound DLC, Update 1.10
  • Jan. 30: Gundam Pixie, Farsia
  • Feb. 6: Build Strike Full Package, Efreet Schneid

As to whether or not the G Sound edition will be available outside of Japan is still yet to be determined. In regards to the units, perhaps we’ll be seeing more Build Fighters units now that the titular protagonist from the first series has been added. Until then, check out the video below to see Build Strike gameplay and the rest of the announcements as well, such as G Generation Genesis for the Switch and a tease of the new Gundam Breaker for the PS4!

News: Border Break is Finally Coming to PS4 Mon, 15 Jan 2018 02:19:36 +0000

Back in 2009, you may remember that we reviewed the awesome Border Break. Well, it finally seems that after nearly a decade the game will be getting a console port on the PS4. Not only will the game support mouse input, along with DualShock 4, it will also have an all-new story mode. The console version of Border Break will also come in two major flavors; an online free-to-play version and a boxed release with most of the content included. The free-to-play setup is actually not that far from how the game currently works in the arcades, so it will be interesting to see how it does. While there is no news yet on when this PS4 version of Border break will be released, there are plans for an open-beta sometime in February. It is also worth pointing out that the game is currently only slated for a Japanese release but considering the fact that the PS4 is region free means you will still be able to easily import and play the game.

News: God Gundam and Master Gundam DLC Coming To Gundam Versus In January Thu, 21 Dec 2017 18:58:05 +0000

It’s been a long time coming, but God Gundam and Master Gundam are finally joining the Gundam Versus roster as the next DLC units in January. While we’ve had several melee focused units already, none can compare to the master and student of the Undefeated of the East in G Gundam. We can expect their Maxi Boost ON versions with slight tweaks as they are both 500 cost units, which we haven’t seen in awhile from the last batch of DLC units. You’ll also get BGM tracks with each unit such as “Flying In The Sky” with God Gundam and “Trust You Forever” with Master Gundam. While it’s a shame we don’t see the rest of the Shuffle Alliance as assists for God Gundam, it’s good to see some G Gundam representation again in the latest Versus title.

News: Aegis Gundam, GM Sniper II White Dingo Ver. and More Coming To Gundam Versus This December Fri, 24 Nov 2017 22:32:26 +0000

This December, even more suits are being added to the ever growing Gundam Versus lineup. The first is Aegis Gundam, last seen in Gundam SEED Destiny: Rengou VS ZAFT II Plus and a unit that fans of the VS series have been requesting for awhile. It’s a 300 cost unit that brings the usual Mobile Armor shenanigans of mobility and firepower, including its infamous shield throw as a sub attack straight from the anime.

Next is the GM Sniper II White Dingo Ver. from the Dreamcast game Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story 0079: Rise From The Ashes. As expected, it will be bringing the sniping toolset to the 200 cost series of units.

Another return from the EXVS series is Gundam AGE-2. One of the better 400 cost units in the previous edition, the AGE-2 mixes up the opponents with its maneuverability by switching between it’s normal and G-Strider mobile armor mode. As one of the titular AGE units, it can also switch to the Double Bullet equipment, giving the AGE-2 more firepower while sacrificing some speed.

Last but not least is the Mudrock Gundam, first playable in Mobile Suit Gundam: Zeonic Front. It will be a heavy firepower-based 300 cost unit looking similar to the Guncannon, but with more ballistic attacks.

All these suits will be dropping in December with the AGE-2 and Mudrock on December 5 and the Aegis and GM Sniper II on December 12.

Another unit to look out for that may be on the horizon soon is the Kaempfer, too. It was recently announced that it will be joining the Maxi Boost ON roster. As time has shown us, both Gundam Versus and Maxi Boost ON have been sharing recently released units, so here’s to hoping it will pop up in the near future!

Videos: Atlas Gundam Gameplay Trailer in EXVS Maxi Boost ON Fri, 03 Nov 2017 00:22:41 +0000  

Bandai Namco have released a gameplay trailer for Atlas Gundam in EXVS Maxi Boost ON. As the unit is also releasing in Gundam Versus as well, we can at least use this vid to see what the unit is capable of! As a 2500 cost unit (400 cost in Gundam Versus), the Atlas Gundam looks to focus on being a very slippery unit, allowing you to close in quickly or evade via special movement from its sub-legs. Check out the video below and let us know what you think!

News: Atlas Gundam DLC Coming To Gundam Versus Fri, 27 Oct 2017 19:48:08 +0000

If you were hoping for more Gundam Thunderbolt units, there’s good news! Atlas Gundam will be joining the Gundam Versus roster as DLC in late November. This will more than likely coincide with the release of the Gundam Thunderbolt: Bandit Flower movie, which will showcase the Atlas Gundam. If anything, it looks to be a 500 cost suit with many mobility tricks up its sleeve. As not much is known, we’ll continue to let you know as more info hits!

Videos: Phantom Gundam and Nightingale Coming To Gundam Versus on September 26 Fri, 15 Sep 2017 08:39:01 +0000

Phantom Gundam and Nightingale will be coming to Gundam Versus on September 26 in Japan. As mentioned in our previous post, Phantom Gundam is a 400 cost unit and is taking full advantage of its unique abilities along with its mobile armor and Phantom Light mode. The Nightingale, added back in EXVS Maxi Boost, returns as a 500 cost unit with its projectile heavy arsenal, suppressing the enemies with a bombardment of multiple funnel attacks and other beam weaponry that fills lots of space.

What will be interesting to see is if these units are already available as DLC for the Western launch on September 29. We’ve heard no information regarding pricess or whether or not there will be some kind of season pass as well. Considering the current cost per unit in Japan and the amount of units that have already been released, it’s a pretty tall ask for players who are jumping into Gundam Versus and are wanting to get the whole package.

As always, we’ll keep you informed of new information as it comes in. Check out the trailers for Phantom Gundam and Nightingale below and let us know what you think!

News: Gundam Versus To Add Phantom Gundam As DLC Unit Wed, 23 Aug 2017 22:21:01 +0000

As we await the upcoming Western release of Gundam Versus on September 29 on top of unreleased units such as Pale Rider and Gundam Guison Rebake, Phantom Gundam has been announced as a future DLC unit from Gundam Ace magazine. This will be the first time it makes a video game appearance.

The Phantom Gundam comes from the manga Crossbone Gundam Ghost, a sequel to the Crossbone Gundam: Steel Seven manga and set around the events of the V Gundam anime near the Jupiter Sphere. The Phantom Gundam is a prototype unit from the Jupiter Foundation using Minovsky Drive technology stolen from the SNRI, the institute that created the F91 and F97 Crossbone series Gundams. Essentially, the Phantom Gundam can generate wings of light similar to the V2 Gundam, but due to imperfect reverse engineering, it cannot match it performance wise. With similar cooling tech used in the F91 to prevent overheating, the Phantom’s emissions create a ghost like effect, thus the name.

In terms of arsenal, it uses Butterfly Busters which double as a beam handgun and short range beam knife and a Phantom Light beam sword. Expect a lot of I-Field shenanigans as well, as the Phantom’s combination of Minovsky Drive and I-Field generators allows it to supercharge a lot of its beam arsenal and defensive capabilities. Expect to see the Muramasa blaster in some form or fashion as well either as a melee attack or as part of a Striker Assist with the Crossbone X-0. It also has a mobile armor mode called Mirage Oiseau, that will no doubt provide more mobility and attack options for the unit.

There isn’t much more information about the unit in terms of cost as well, but I’m guessing it will be a 400 cost as there is a more powerful version of the Phantom in the manga, the Ghost Gundam. Hopefully we’ll see some enemy Crossbone units as well. Until then, we’ll keep you updated as more info hits!
