posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Enterbrain's Famitsu news source reported on Wednesday that the limited edition of the Gundam UC video game will bundle a novel by Harutoshi Fukui, the original author of the Gundam UC anime series. The novel will be titled Mobile Suit Gundam UC: Sengo no Sensō (Mobile Suit Gundam UC: The Postwar War).
The limited-edition bundle will also include a Blu-ray "Mobile Suit Gundam UC Collector's Disc" that will feature a digest of the first three episodes of the Gundam Unicorn anime series. The collector's disc will also include a digest video of the "Film & Live" premiere event for the fourth episode, which was held on October 1.
Famitsu also posted additional images from the game on Wednesday.
From Software (Armored Core, Another Century's Episode) 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.
