Bandai Namco Entertainment America began streaming a new video on Monday for its Gundam Versus PlayStation 4 game that introduces playable pilot and mobile suit pairs from the Gundam Reconguista in G series.

Bandai Namco Entertainment 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, Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack, Mobile Suit Crossbone Gundam: Ghost, Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack Beltorchika's Children, Gundam Unicorn, Mobile Suit Gundam F91, and Victory Gundam characters. Bandai Namco Entertainment added playable mobile suits from Mobile Suit Gundam AGE into the Japanese version of the game game on Tuesday.

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

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.
