The first video shows the game if the player chooses the 20th Mechanized Composite Corps on the Earth Federation Forces side. Officially, it is a mobile suit experimental unit, but it also known as "Slave Wraith," a disciplinary unit for exacting punishment regardless of faction. Among the members are Fred Reaper (codename "Ripper"), Marvin Herriot ("Bomber"), Travis Kirkland ("Fixer"), Doris Brandt ("Diver"), and Edward Lee ("Hire" or "Limo Driver").
The second video centers around the Marchosias Team, a special joint unit of ace pilots on the Zeon side. The members include Gii Helmut, Albert Bell, Liberio Lincke, Annerose Rosenhain, Severo Oswald, Doug Schneid, and Vincent Gleissner.
Besides Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: Missing Link, the collection has 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 (about US$76) on May 29, and the limited edition will cost 13,790 yen (US$138).
