Bandai Namco Entertainment America began streaming a trailer that previews the pre-order bonuses for the Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxiboost ON game on Thursday. Players who pre-order the game will receive the playable Mobile Suit Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex, an extra 24 hours every weekend for the open access beta period, and Operator Sthesia Awar for the Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2 game.
The game launches on July 30 in the Americas, Europe, Australia, and Japan. The "two-on-two team battle action" game will also launch in Southeast Asia (in English) in 2020. The open beta period started on June 19, and it will run for up to 24 hours every weekend until the game's launch. A closed beta test ran from April 25-27.
The PS4 version of Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxi Boost ON will feature 185 Mobile Suits from 36 works. Including non-player characters, the game will have a total of more than 300 Mobile Suits. Just as in the original arcade game, the PS4 version will have an Extreme Burst mode that greatly boosts Mobile Suit performance and allows players to use powerful attacks.
A new arcade game in the Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. series is in development.
This game series based on the Gundam robot anime franchise began with Mobile Suit Gundam: Federation Vs. Zeon in arcades in 2001, and it has since spawned releases on both home consoles and portable game systems. The ninth major arcade game release in the series was the first Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs., and it debuted in 2010. The game has since received several upgrades in arcades. Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxi Boost ON, the most recent arcade release in the series, launched in 2016.
The Gundam Extreme Vs. Full Boost game debuted in arcades in Japan in 2012. A PlayStation 3 version, which is the most recent console game in the Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. series, shipped in 2014.
