The leading publisher of anime related gaming installments, Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc., has announced today that Gundam Versus will be heading to the Playstation 4. Gundam Versus will allow players to take control of over 90 different mobile suits from various points in the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise, which spans 35 years. Players will be able to battle it out online in 2 versus 2, or 3 vs 3 team battles. Every available mobile suit will boast its own unique weapon systems and mobility options.
The Mobile Suit Gundam franchise has been embedded in Japanese culture for decades, and there is a loyal following among avid anime watchers in the Americas, as well. Bandai Namco no doubt looks to capitalize on the eagerness of the fanbase with a title built completely from the ground up for the Playstation 4. Gundam Versus is currently looking at a release in Fall 2017.
