Today Bandai Namco hosted its panel at Anime Expo in Los Angeles, and they just announced the localization of Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2.
The online game, which is pretty much a Gundam take on the Battlefield formula (but in third-person and a smaller player count), has been out in Japan and Asia for a while, yet the series has eluded western players, until now.
It will come to the Americas in 2019 for PlayStation 4 and it’ll be free-to-play, distributed exclusively via PlayStation Store.
Below you can watch the first trailer and screenshots.
Below you can read an official summary from the press release.
“Mobile Suit Gundam B attle Operation 2 builds on the critically acclaimed land-based combat of its predecessor and takes the 6v6 action up a notch with all-new space-based battles. Infantry battles add a new dimension to the in-game combat, giving pilots the ability to take part in the fight alongside mechas, placing bombs in enemy bases or requesting support fire to help decide the outcome of the battle. Additionally, customizable Mobile Suits offer players the opportunity to enhance their favorite mecha through Development Points earned in battle.
Boasting an ever-evolving rotation of Mobile Suits, stages, clothing, and events, Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2 will launch in the Americas with a plethora of content upon release, with even more content to come following launch.”
