Following the announcement of Gundam Breaker Mobile made for Japan and parts of Asia earlier this morning, Bandai Namco Entertainment announced the localization for North America.
The game will be titled Gundam Battle: Gunpla Warfare in the United States and Canada, and it will launch this Summer.
“For fans of the series, GUNDAM BATTLE: GUNPLA WARFARE features exclusive original characters and Gunpla models and an original Gundam story that challenges players to win tournaments in their quest to save their school’s Gunpla club from shutting down forever. To do this, GUNDAM BATTLE: GUNPLA WARFARE calls on Gunpla masters from around the world to create custom mecha and battle-it-out in real-time 3rd-person combat in the immersive GUNDAM universe.
Players can employ strategy to collect, mix and match parts and skills, and even apply a fresh coat of paint to craft the ultimate fighting machine. With the game’s visually appealing yet intuitive combat mechanics, anyone can create unique mecha combos with melee and long-range attacks, and choose from different Gunpla job license types, including In-Fighter, Defender, Support, and more.”
Producer Shinsuke Ninomiya also accompanied the press release with a comment.
“The GUNDAM BATTLE: GUNPLA WARFARE mobile game represents the culmination of the best aspects of GUNDAM; drawing from the lore of the anime universe, the charm of the Gunpla models and the excitement of bringing virtual GUNDAM into battle.
We’ve enabled an unprecedented level of depth in customization, allowing players to build anything from an agile mecha armed with a sword to an armor-clad bastion equipped with powerful artillery. The game encourages countless unique builds and playstyles that fans from all corners of the GUNDAM universe can enjoy.”
