Plastic model battle game to ship for PS3/PS Vita on June 27

Namco Bandai Games began streaming a web ad for its Gundam Breaker game on Friday. The game will ship for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in Japan on June 27.


Unlike many previous Gundam games that recreate scenarios from Gundam franchise anime, this game will pit plastic models against other plastic models in stages inspired by dioramas. The game allows players to mix and match body parts and weapons from the series' large number of mobile suits. Customizable parts include head, body, arms, legs, backpack, shield, close-range and far-range weapons, optional parts, and parts called "Ex-acts" and "modules."

Players can then battle in robots in multiple scales on "battlefields" such as a roulette table, Diver City (the home of the life-size Gundam statue), a forest, and a tundra. The player's objective is to destroy the head, arms, and legs of their opponent's unit. The game will also include mission assignments to destroy enemies, and the player in turn will receive new customizable parts for completing the missions.

The game's announced mecha roster include RX-78-2 Gundam from Mobile Suit Gundam, ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam from Gundam Seed Destiny, GN-0000 Gundam OO from Gundam 00, MS-06 Zaku II from Mobile Suit Gundam, MSN-04 Sazabi from Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack, and MSN-06S Sinanju from Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn.

Bandai Namco Games announced the game last September. The company released a trailer at the Tokyo Game Show 2012 event in September, followed by a second promotional video in February. The game's third promotional video began streaming last month.
