Armored Core/A.C.E.'s From Software Makes Gundam UC PS3 Game
posted on by Egan Loo
From Software, the developer behind the Armored Core and Another Century's Episode (A.C.E.) robot game franchises, is developing a PlayStation 3 game based on the Mobile Suit Gundam UC video anime series for release next spring. The game — the first for the video anime — will cover the story from the first three anime volumes. Part of the game will follow the story from the viewpoint of the main character Banagher, while other parts will follow the story from the viewpoints of the rival characters Marida and Frontal.
The Banagher route will have the player piloting the Unicorn Gundam in both "Unicorn mode" and "Destroy Mode" (with the NT-D system activated). The Frontal route will have the player in the remnants of the Zeon forces, piloting Frontal's personal mobile suit Sinanju. The Marida route puts the player in the shoes of the namesake Zeon ace pilot and the Kshatriya mobile suit with its remotely guided Funnel weapons.
The November 24 issue of Enterbrain's Weekly Famitsu magazine (which actually shipped on Thursday) has an interview with the developers of the game, along with profiles of the featured mobile suits and characters. During battle, the player can engage the "subflight system," and there will be downloadable content. Famitsu posted additional images from the game.
