It appears the next version of the Gundam VS series is currently in development! Thanks to some keen redditors, a recent Famitsu article has a provided a Q&A session with series producer Ryuichiro Baba and other staff members regarding the future of the Gundam VS series. They mention their understanding of Gundam EXVS Force’s misgivings with the fans and plan to address those issues in the latest installment. They also mention console specs and infrastructures are now ripe to take advantage of connecting players, and that possibly includes a more global focus. They also mention the new VS game as the 5th generation of Gundam VS, with EXVS series being the 4th. Perhaps we’ll hear more about this in the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, but this news definitely has us salivating while we continue to wait for a Maxi Boost console version.

So would it be a good thing or bad thing to want an entry in this series to be suitable for the pro arcade fighting circuit? Though it would likely need a 1-1 option as well as multiplayer with no AI assist.

Force 2 for consoles? No thanks, because that’s what this sounds like. What players just want is the arcade game at home. No need to throw a ton of useless Moba style MP in there. Will wait and see for more news.

1v1 idea is…. well….bad, this has always been 2v2 from the get go. That would be like making SF a tag game, and yes I know the fighting games have had spin off tag games, but who is still playing those? Don’t mess with the core of the game imo. That’s a sure way to piss off long time fans right away.

2v2 has been competitive for donkey years. That’s not what has held the game back in the west. The simple fact it is titled Gundam is.
