Gaming's Flashiest Trailer Belongs to Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Full Boost

Posted by Robert Ramsey

The name isn't bad either

After its colossal success in Japanese arcades, partner-based super mech battle simulator Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Full Boost landed onto the PlayStation 3 earlier this year in its native country, and it hasn't taken long for this trailer of the updated Maxi Boost version of the game to blast its way online. Currently set to release in arcades in March, there's little doubt that this improved edition will jet onto Sony's platform in the future.

Consequently, Bandai Namco has saw fit to release what is possibly the flashiest trailer that we've ever seen. It may be just under two minutes long, but this explosive video has more Gundam, beam weapons, and space combat than most normal people can handle. Unfortunately, for all its brilliance, this latest mobile suit brawler probably won't ever see a Western release despite its immense success in its home nation. If you're keen to learn more about the incredibly comprehensive smash-'em-up, feel free to take a tour through the title's colourful website. Are you thinking of importing?

Almost looks like an anime trailer more than a game trailer.

I think this game has a shot at a Western release though. Dynasty Warriors Gundam did well enough after all, and devs seem more keen to bringing over niche PS3 titles than before.

Sounds like that J rock group Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas in the background of that trailer. (the guys that did the first Hunter X Hunter 2011 ending)

Just played Full Boost on my friend's PS3 a week ago. EXTREMELY fun. Though I wonder what he'll think when he finds out that a third version is coming out.

Still got the first Gundam Extreme Vs import and for this coming to the console is much more considered to have with my flurry of Japanese niche titles and imports.

I just cannot wait when the PS4 get pushed full swing in Japan so I can collect on more games that's in my genre.

Sorry Wii U for the Region Lock -_-

I ordered Full Boost almost 3 weeks ago and I am still waiting on it! But dude you got the titles mixed up this is the trailer for Gundam Extreme VS Max Boost the newest 1 in the japanese arcades with even more gundams and mobile suits. Max boost will be in the Japanese arcade in March full boost just came to ps3 last month on the 30th!but I'll be honest damn I wish max boost was coming out because full armor Unicorn is in it full boost won't be seeing him anytime soon and I freaking love that machine! And out of all the gundam extreme vs titles this is definitely the best video they have shown! trust me man I am the biggest gundam fanatic on this site if my avatar hasn't hinted that already!!!! =)

@DoublezZ01 Ah, so Maxi Boost is coming to ARCADES in March? Thanks for the feedback. I've updated the article to reflect this.

And while I could import this, I'm just not keen on having a game in Japanese. I feel like I'd always be missing something.

@ShogunRok yeah I know what you mean luckily any of the story based stuff is the only thing you will see in the cut scenes so you really aren't missing much! Its not like gundam Musso where they have a side story of sorts, or I should say their own little story :-)
