Gundam Versus | Title

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. has announced that Gundam Versus will be heading west this Fall exclusively for PS4. The game will feature over 90 Mobile Suits spanning over 35 years of the franchise.  Players can battle each other online in two-versus-two and three-versus-three battles to determine who is the best Mobile Suit pilot.

Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., said the following of the franchise and the game’s release announcement:

“For more than 35 years the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise has fostered a highly engaged and energetic community. We are excited to release GUNDAM VERSUS to those fans eager for more Mobile Suit Gundam releases in the West, as well as introducing the franchise a brand new expanded audience.”

In addition to the announcement news, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. also streamed an announcement video and the opening movie for the game. You can check those out below.

    Option B I believe is the Nu Gundam rather than Zeta, and Option C I think has Full Armor Gundam instead of ZZ.

      Oh wow you’re totally right. I can’t believe I mixed up Zeta and Nu, Nu has the marking on its shoulder and everything. I couldn’t really tell which Gundam it was for Option C. Thanks for the help!

    No God/Burning?

    No Char’s Custom Zaku II?

    WHY EVEN BOTHER

    Awesome! This Nu Gundam isn’t just for show!
