Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force Game's 2nd Trailer, New Mobile Suits Unveiled
posted on by Karen Ressler
The Gundam Portal Site posted a second trailer for Bandai Namco Entertainment's upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force PlayStation Vita game on Wednesday. The 13-minute video previews gameplay, music, and character voices.
In addition, the website added six more playable mobile suits to the game:
Zeong (Mobile Suit Gundam)
Kamille's Gundam Mk-II (Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam)
The-O (Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam)
Emma's Gundam Mk-II (Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam)
Kshatriya (Mobile Suit Gundam UC)
Banshee (Mobile Suit Gundam UC)
In addition, Rick-Dias (Red) and Dijeh from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and Angelo's Geara Zulu from Mobile Suit Gundam UC will appear in the game as non-playable mobile suits.
The game will ship in Japan on December 23. Bandai Namco Entertainment is also releasing an English version for an Asian market.
In addition to the familiar 2 vs. 2 gameplay seen in previous entries, the new game lets players form their own original unit from six mobile suits. For the first time in the franchise, there will be three MS units and warships with up to seven MSs in a battle. Two players can battle each other via PS Vita's ad-hoc multi-player function. The new Force System allows players to give instructions to other mobile suits with "one button" and collect force points from defeating enemies and capturing bases. These force points can be used to replenish stats.
Gundam Barbatos (form 4) from the latest Gundam television anime, this fall's Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, and Haine's Destiny Gundam from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny will be available for a limited time as a DLC included with the game. A download code for Gundam Barbatos (form 1) will be included with the anime's first Blu-ray set on December 24.
First copies of the game will also include an promotional "RX-78-2 Gundam" card for the Mobile Suit Gundam U.C. Card Builder game. Sony will also release special collaboration models of the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV (known as the PlayStation Vita TV in Japan).
