The question is whether it will reach our shores.
Dynasty Warriors, love it or hate it has seen countless sequels and spin-offs on numerous platforms, and the Gundam series has probably been the biggest recent offshoot.
Famitsu magazine announced the next title in the Gundam series will be exclusive to the Vita (and PS3) and will feature over a hundred playable suits. Polygon had the following to say about Namco Bandai’s upcoming title:
“Called Shin Gundam Musou in Japanese, the new title marks a return to a more realistic graphical style for the series after Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3’s cel-shaded look. This will allow for things like spot damage on Mobile Suits, and you’ll get ample chance to see this in action, given that NBGI is planning for over 100 MS units to be playable between Official Mode (which recreates the original story from several Gundam anime) and Ultimate Mode (which features an all-new story).
New units include the RX-0 Banshee from Gundam UC and the GAT-X105 Strike Gundam and GAT-X202 Aegis Gundam both from Gundam SEED. In addition, Shin Gundam Musou will feature controllable Mobile Armors, mech units that are generally much larger than your typical MS unit.
The new Gundam game, currently pegged at 80 percent complete, is due out Dec. 19 in Japan. The PS3 version will cost 7980 yen (approximately $80), while the Vita game will go for 6980 yen (about $70).”
If we get more info we will let you know, and in the mean time look out for my Dynasty Warriors: NEXT review, coming soon!
