The official website for the Gundam Versus PlayStation 4 game began streaming a new promotional video on Tuesday. The video reveals that the game will ship in Japan on July 6.
This week's issue of Kadokawa's Weekly Famitsu magazine is revealing on Thursday seven more Mobile Suits that will be playable in the game: Kimaris Trooper, Psycho Zaku, Qubeley, Nemo, Turn X, Blitz Gundam, and Gundam Throne Eins. The magazine already revealed in December 12 Mobile Suits that will appear in the newest installment in its Gundam VS game series. The updated list of Mobile Suits that will appear in the game is as follows:
- V Gundam
- Wing Gundam Zero
- Unicorn Gundam
- Full Armor Gundam
- Kimaris Trooper
- Psycho Zaku
- Turn X
- Blitz Gundam
- Gundam Throne Eins
The game will be available in a regular edition and a Premium G Sound Edition. Both the packaged and download versions of the regular edition will cost 8,200 yen (about US$74), but the download version will be available for 7,380 yen (US$67) until August 2. The Premium G Sound Edition will feature a total of 35 songs including anime songs and background music from the original works, in addition to original game songs. The special edition will also include a product code to play on release day Mobile Suits that are planned to debut later for other players. Both the packaged and download versions of the limited edition will cost 11,200 yen (US$101), but the download version will be available for 10,080 yen (US$91) until August 2.
People who preorder will receive a product code for the Gundam games' 30th anniversary mobile suit Hot Scramble Gundam (pictured below), which is piloted by Meijin Kawaguchi III. People who order the download version of the game will receive a special Gundam Versus theme.
Famitsu's report of the alpha version revealed the game's Boost Dive, Striker Select, and Awakening System in December. Unlike other games in the series, Gundam Versus is not adapted from an arcade game, but was developed with the PlayStation 4 console in mind. The game will contain the series' familiar two-on-two battles, but will have other game modes.
The game celebrates the series' 15th anniversary. Bandai Namco Entertainment announced in October that the game will have an English-subtitled release with Japanese audio in Southeast Asia.
The game series' latest arcade installment is the Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxi Boost ON game, released on March 9. The series' latest non-arcade installment is Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs. Force, which shipped for the PlayStation Vita in Japan in December 2015, and for Asia as an English release on July 12.
