Sony announced during its Tokyo Game Show conference on Tuesday that Bandai Namco Entertainment is developing Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2, a sequel to its Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation and Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation Next games, for the PlayStation 4. The game is slated for release in 2018.

The first game launched in Japan for the PS3 in June 2012, and ceased operations on July 31.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation was the first free-to-play game for the Gundam franchise. In the game, four to six players could join either the Earth Federation or Zeon Forces to play against each other. Players could not only pilot the giant Mobile Suits of the Gundam world, but could also attack enemies in vehicles or even on foot.

A sequel game titled Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation Next debuted for the PS4 and PS3 in August 2015. Featuring similar gameplay as its predecessor, the sequel introduces Mobile Suits from Mobile Suit Z Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam Seed, and Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.

Disclosure: Bandai Namco Rights Marketing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Bandai Namco Holdings Inc., is a non-controlling, minority shareholder in Anime News Network Inc.
