Gundam video games are as much a staple for the brand as is Haro.
Released in multiple format, the Gundam franchise always managed to find itself and it’s fans in the Fighting genre.
A lot of people fondly remembers PS2 era Gundam fighting games like Gundam VS Zeta Gundam or Encounter in Space. Or the recent extravaganza that was Extreme VS Full Boost.
For those unfamilliar with the way these games are played it is pretty simple. There is an interesting ‘Story Mode’ that reflects some episodes or parts of Gundam shows, or training as I call it.
And then there’s the multiplayer, where you can duke it out with friends and familly using your favorite Mobile Suit or Gundam from all universes. Hopefully, this release will support easy online play.
Following this trend of fighting games, Gundan Versus, which was announced in two versions in Japan will be releasing it’s standard subtitled version of the game this Fall.
The second version not coming our way is the Premium G Sound edition which contains additional music from the shows. This version will not be released here because of licensing issues.
This is not the first time something similar happens in the Gundam franchise. The opening for Zeta Gundam was changed in the western release and a similar version of Extreme VS Full Boost was also released with a larger soundtrack.
However, in Extreme VS Full Boost, there was a feature where you could upload music from your Playstation 3. Let’s hope this feature stays. In the end, I’m pretty sure the Spotify app still works fine on Playstation 4.
As for me, I cannot wait to get my hands on this game!
