posted on by Karen Ressler
Gundam Unicorn also showcased in video

Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming videos introducing two new playable pilot and mobile suit pairs for its Gundam Versus PlayStation 4 game on Thursday. Both characters will join the game in an update on September 26.

The first video introduces Font Baud and Phantom Gundam from the Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam: Ghost manga.

The second video introduces Char Aznable and Nightengale from the Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack Beltorchika's Children manga.

In addition, Bandai Namco Entertainment America began streaming a video showcasing characters and mobile suits from Gundam Unicorn:

The company previously streamed similar videos for Gundam 08th MS Team, Mobile Suit Gundam Thunderbolt, Zeta Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ, and Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack characters.

The game shipped in Japan in July. Bandai Namco Entertainment will release the game in the Americas, Europe, and Southeast Asia on September 29.

Those who pre-order the game in the U.S. at participating retailers will receive the BN-876 ß Hot Scramble Gundam (pictured below) along with bonus DLC characters including ASW-G-08 Gundam Barbatos Lupus and GN-005 Gundam Virtue.

The game features more than 90 Mobile Suits.

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 contains the series' familiar two-on-two battles, but has other game modes. The game features Boost Action (including boost dash, boost step, and new boost dive), Striker Select, and Awakening battle systems. For the first time in the series the game has a six-person online multiplayer feature.
