The video gaming convention Tokyo Game Show opened on Thursday, and Bandai Namco Games is demonstrating three Gundam-themed apps for Apple's iPhone and iPod touch mobile devices. The AppBank website posted videos of its hands-on experience with the three apps and other software at the show.
Two of the Gundam apps are games. Gundam Fighting Spirits (tentative title) is a 2D fighting game with the anime franchise's mobile suits facing each other. Players can fight each other over a wireless Bluetooth connection. An earlier version of the game has been available for other mobile phones in Japan. SD Gundam G Generation Touch (tentative title) is a port of the SD Gundam G Generation tactical simulation game franchise from traditional game consoles. This game series recreates and expands upon the storylines of the anime franchise and allows players to use over 100 mobile suits in turn-based tactics.
The third set of apps is tentatively titled NDAM Tool Box (Gundam Tool Box -RX-78-2 Cockpit ver.- and Gundam Tool Box -RX-78-2 simple icons ver.-). The apps offer alternate ways to access eight common features such as email and phone in a Gundam-theme environment.
The three featured apps will come out in Japan in Winter, but an overseas release has not been announced.
