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.

Aren’t there any other subjects worth talking about? There are ten posts on the front page and every one of them is about this game.

Really excited for 3v3! Glad to see some new stuff being introduced to this series.
