posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Namco Bandai Games began streaming a second map test video for Namco Bandai Online's new Mobile Suit Gundam Online game for Microsoft Windows systems. The video features gameplay on the map of Jaburo, the anime's famous underground headquarters of the Earth Federation.
Another video introduces combat against ships:
The game has each player assuming the role of a mobile suit pilot in the world of the first Mobile Suit Gundam television anime series. The player can choose between the Earth Federation or Zeon forces and fight alongside friends in various battlefields. Players can eventually command other pilots and encounter famous pilots from the original anime. Each side of a battle can have up to 52 players, for a grand total of 104 players.
The game will feature not only customizable units and characters from the first anime, but also those from original video anime spinoffs and other projects. The game will also have different game modes and rule settings for players to try out.
Bandai Namco Games is accepting applications through July 27 for the third alpha test, which run next month.
