News: Gundam Seed Battle Destiny Customisation Update

There have been two updates about the forthcoming Gundam Seed Battle Destiny’s customisation system over at Famitsu as well as 4Gamer. What’s especially interesting is that the upgrading of mobile suits will be undertaken via GP and TP points. TP is awarded at the end of mission and is linked to the mecha you just used, like the classic Gundam Battle games. Whereas GP is similarly awarded at the end of each mission but can be used on any mobile suit of your choosing. However, it also sounds that GP can be reassigned at a later date (unlike TP which is permanently spent once used). Like in the Macross games, you can also purge parts and this in turn affects the performance of your mobile suit. In any case, the GP and TP setup is a shrewd one; as it affords a more fluid upgrade system and one that probably won’t descend into a motherless grind-fest. It genuinely seems that Artdink are actually trying to move the series on after the really quite shockingly poor Gundam Assault Survive. For that we applaud them. As always, you can pre-order the game here.

    TP is awarded at the end of the mission…like arriving from a really long road trip, the pilots of the mobile suit probably have to shit really bad after lengthy battles. No space suit could accommodate that amount of dookie, so your TP rations are attributed to your performance, naturally.
