Bandai Namco have released a 14-minute video showcasing all non-DLC playable units in Gundam Versus. From new additions such as Slave Wraith and Nemo to series veterans such as Zeta and Sazabi, the video provides quick snippets of the roster available out of the box. No new surprises as well as no footage of Hot Scramble Gundam or Gundam Barbatos Rex.

Don’t forget, you can also take part in the Gundam Versus Trial Ver. until July 1st with a rotating schedule of playable units. Be sure to check out the video below and let us know what you think in the comments!

Videos: New Gundam Versus PV Showcases Gameplay Modes, Barbatos Lupus as First DLC Unit, Trial Version in June

Bandai Namco have released a new video showcasing the upcoming game modes in Gundam Versus. Check out the highlighted modes below:

  • Free Battle – Set your battle parameters and play against the CPU to practice your skills. Essentially the Gundam Versus training room like previous versions.
  • Trial Battle – Tackle multiple routes based on Gundam lore and earn GP to level up your units and unlock pilots/strikers/emblems/navigators/etc. Similar to previous Mission Modes in Full Boost and EXVS.
  • Ultimate Battle – A survival game type where you battle waves of enemies with increasing difficulty. You can level up your characters stats after each wave. You’ll sometimes encounter an Extra Wave that has certain rule sets, such as a 3v3 match or Giant boss.
  • Casual Match – An online mode where you can choose either 1v1, 2v2, or 3v3 matches and quickly thrown into matches with random players.
  • Player Match – The go-to game mode where you’ll create or play in lobbies of up to 18 players to compete in either 2v2 or 3v3 matches.
  • Ranked Match – Coming in a later patch, Ranked Match puts you in the familiar 2v2 setting with either a random partner or an online friend to earn points and climb up the global ranking ladder.

There are other post-launch plans for added content in Ultimate Battle. When it comes to the Western release, it will probably have a day 1 patch including all the post-launch free content similar to the western release of EXVS Force last year.

Later in the video, Gundam Barbatos Lupus is announced to be the first actual paid DLC unit (not counting first print Hot Scramble Gundam). Players who buy the Premium G Sound edition will be able to use it immediately for free.

A trial version of the game will also be available for download from the JP PSN store starting May 31. On every Thursday and Saturday from June 1 to July 1 between 21:00 – 22:00 JST, players will be able to play the trial version of Gundam Versus with a rotating set of units within that hour period. You will not need PS+ to participate in the trial. Hopefully as we get closer to the western release, they’ll provide something similar to NA and EU PSN players.

Let us know what you think of the content in the comments! For more details and a look at some of the new mobile suits in action such as the Slave Wraith, feel free to check out latest video below.

News: Gundam Versus Roster Adds Hi-Nu, Slave Wraith, Gelgoog HM, Guntank and Many More

As we get closer to the July 6th Japanese/SEA release of Gundam Versus, the latest Famitsu issue reveals 11 new units to the roster! Headlining the update includes the Hi-Nu Gundam from Char’s Counterattack: Beltorchika’s Children and the RX-79[G] Slave Wraith and Gelgoog HM from the PS3 title Gundam Side Stories. Both Side Stories units are brand new to the Gundam VS series and it’s interesting to see the roster start to branch out into the game spinoffs. This means we’ll most definitely see the Pale Rider and possibly it’s updated variant, the Todesritter, in the roster sometime down the line as well. Of course, with Hi-Nu joining the cast, the Nightingale is not too far behind.

While not listed in the article preview, we’ll also be seeing the addition of more 200 cost units. They include the Guntank, Rick Dias, Methuss, Dom, Hi-Zack, GM Custom, Re-ZEL, and Vigna Ghina. With this updated list including the ones listed on the official site so far, we’re now at 83 playable units confirmed. As in previous VS games, we do know a lot more are incoming especially as we haven’t seen the likes of 00 Raiser, Destiny, and God Gundam. As to whether or not they’re unlockable or part of a DLC plan is still up in the air. Let us know what you think of the latest roster additions below and what you’d like to see added!

Looks like the West will finally have another home console VS game on the way with Bandai Namco’s announcement of Gundam Versus coming to North America and Europe this Fall. Bandai Namco are also holding a contest where you can vote for the upcoming cover among the following four choices: RX-78/Barbatos, Unicorn/Nu, Exia/Full Armor Gundam, or Wing Zero/Freedom.

On top of this, they’ve also announced Altron Gundam, Gundam Epyon, and the Crossbone trio (X1, X2 Kai, X3) will be joining the roster. While the West will be getting the game a couple months after Japan, it’s still great to know that the rest of the world will be able to experience Gundam VS action without importing. Perhaps this will lead to a bigger presence at fighting game tournaments across the world as well. Be sure to check out the announce trailer below and let us know what you think!

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 is the newly announced 3v3 mode. As the VS series has been traditionally 2v2, it will be interesting to see how unit balance shifts with this new mode. It also appears the team cost has been increased from 1000 to 1500 to accommodate the change in team size. As this mode is maintained as its own thing, don’t expect 3v3 to become the new standard just yet. But it would be nice to see this become a popular mode in conjunction with the usual 2v2 action we’re used to. Be sure to check out a quick glimpse of the gameplay at the 3:10 mark in the video below and let us know what you think!

Videos: Gundam Versus Closed Beta Test in March, New Footage From Taipei Games Show

Posted on : 22-01-2017 | By : | In : Videos

Bandai Namco have announced they’ll be holding a closed beta for Gundam Versus in March 2017. It’ll be held in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea. While details are still unknown as to how to enter, more info will drop on the official twitter account. Here’s to hoping entry is not similar to the closed alpha they held last year in their Japanese branches.

On the gameplay front, new footage has come from the 2017 Taipei Games Show this weekend. Units such as Zeta, ZZ, V2, GN-X, and the Overflag were confirmed playable and can be seen in the video below. Aside from that, there were some nice quality of life changes with the HUD including your selected Striker indicator is now moved from the bottom of the screen to above your weapon loadout. Also, it confirmed other units as Strikers such as the Hyaku Shiki and Gundam Dynames as mentioned before. As always, we’ll keep you updated as soon as more information drops. Until then, check out the stream footage from the Taipei Games Show below!

Videos: First Gundam Versus (PS4) Gameplay Footage, New Mechanics Info

Posted on : 26-12-2016 | By : | In : Videos

Hardware:

Hot off the presses from the Gundam Games 30th Anniversary stream comes the first gameplay footage from the Gundam Versus alpha test! The game looks functionally like the EXVS series that came before it, but of course new techniques like the Boost Dive stand out. The first match has RX-78-02 and the Gouf versus Exia and newcomer Kyrios, whereas the second match features Full Armor Gundam (Thunderbolt) and Wing Zero TV versus Sinanju and Guncannon.

A new button has been added to activate the new Boost Dive and Striker functions, the SP button. To activate the Boost Dive, simply hit SP + Boost while in the air. To activate you strikers, hit either SP + Shoot for Striker 1 and SP + Melee for Striker 2. Activating your awakenings is still the same from the EXVS series where you hit Shoot + Melee + Boost. To perform your Awakening Technique, have your gear activated and hit the same three buttons again.

The new Boost Dive technique is similar to the normal Boost Dash in that it allows the cancelling of any move as you dash down towards the floor. But it does have its fair share of caveats. First, Boost Diving consumes a lot more of the boost gauge than boost dashes and step cancels. It also doesn’t cut tracking like step cancelling and has a large recovery. Needless to say, it’s still a great new mobility option that can definitely help increase your lifespan on the battlefield.

The new Striker system was also in play during the matches. The Striker bar fills automatically once the match starts and will carry over after a death. Once a Striker is called upon, the gauge will deplete and not refill until the Striker has finished their attack. When the bar has refilled, either Striker can be used again. As the Striker gauge only allows for one Striker to be used when full, you cannot use multiple Strikers at the same time. While there were only three to choose from in the alpha test, released screenshots show other Strikers like the Ryusei-Go from Iron Blooded Orphans and Gundam Dynames from 00 Gundam as ones to choose from.

Team costs were also shown during the live stream. While the values have changed, the team gauge mechanic is essentially the same from the previous games. In the second match, you can see Wing Zero get overcosted and come back with significantly lower life as the remaining team cost left did not match its unit cost. There were not 200 cost units in this alpha, but we can only assume this will cost will be relegated to the glorified grunt units like previous VS games.

What we’ve seen so far from the alpha test gameplay is very promising as it is definitely staying true to the previous incarnations of the VS series. Feel free to check it out in the video below and let us know what you think!
