Gundam Side Stories PS3's Gameplay Videos Showcase 2 HD Remakes
posted on by Egan Loo
Bandai Namco Games began streaming two gameplay videos for the Mobile Suit Gundam: Side Stories game collection for PlayStation 3 on Friday. The video showcase two of the HD remakes in the collection: Mobile Suit Gundam: Zeonic Front and Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: The Blue Destiny.
The collection has remakes of 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 the new Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: Missing Link game.
The game's VR Mission mode lets the player create a unique team of mobile suits to deploy on various missions. The Story mode lets you play the five earlier Gundam Side Story games (remastered in HD for PlayStation 3) or the brand-new game. The Story mode has scenarios set in U.C.0090 and U.C.0096 — over a decade after the One Year War of the first Gundam anime and most of the other stories in this game collection.
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).
