Whoa, this came out of nowhere. We were casually browsing YouTube when we stumbled across a brand new video from Bandai Namco - namely a Western announcement trailer for Gundam Versus, which is due out on PlayStation 4 in Japan soon.
The latest game in the hit Japanese series, Gundam Versus sees teams of two mobile suits go head-to-head in arena-like maps. Combat is a mix of shooting and melee attacks, with powerful special moves also coming into play. If you want to know more about the franchise, be sure to give our Matters of Import: Gundam Extreme VS Full Boost article a read.
Back in 2015, Bandai Namco told us in an interview that it wasn't against localising its Gundam games, so it's nice to see that stance actually lead somewhere. But of course, we can't forget that the publisher did bring Vita title Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force overseas last year - even it was a bit crap. Hopefully this current-gen game fares much better.
Gundam Versus will be blasting onto our shores this autumn - or fall, for you Americans. Are you up for some mecha action? Make the beam rifle sound in the comments section below.
