PS3 game to feature 3-MS teams in ground/space battles, including a new MS design

Kadokawa's Weekly Famitsu magazine is unveiling Namco Bandai Games' Mobile Suit Gundam Gaiden: Missing Link (Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: Missing Link) for PlayStation 3 on Thursday. BB Studio (Mobile Suit Battle Operation) is developing the anime robot action game, although the release date and pricing is still to be determined.

The game series follows spinoff stories tied to the One Year War chronicled in the first Gundam television anime. It has been over a decade since the last Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story entry, the Gundam Thoroughbred (Kidō Senshi Gundam Gaiden: Sora, Senkō no Hate ni...) segment in the Mobile Suit Gundam: Encounters in Space game for PlayStation 2.

In the new PlayStation 3 game, players can deploy a team of three mobile suits in both ground and space battles. The game will have zero gravity and three-dimension maneuvering to distinguish the space battles from the ground ones. Players can also freely switch between the three mobile suits in the middle of battle, particularly when one mobile suit's hit points has been depleted. Support craft can offer both offensive and defensive assistance to the player.

The magazine teases a mobile suit (pictured above) that is exclusive to the game.
