posted on by Egan Loo
This week's issue of Kadokawa's Weekly Famitsu is reporting that Namco Bandai Games will release Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories for PlayStation 3 on May 29. The collection will include the previously announced new game Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: Missing Link (Mobile Suit Gundam Gaiden: Missing Link), as well as the HD remakes of five previous Side Story titles: Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: The Blue Destiny; Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story 0079: Rise From the Ashes; the Gundam Thoroughbred (Kidō Senshi Gundam Gaiden: Sora, Senkō no Hate ni...) segment in Mobile Suit Gundam: Encounters in Space; Mobile Suit Gundam: Zeonic Front; and Mobile Suit Gundam: Lost War Chronicles. It will also feature at least one new mobile suit.
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.
B.B. Studio (Mobile Suit Battle Operation) is developing the anime robot action game. The regular edition will cost 7,600 yen (8,208 with tax).
