Following today’s announcement of Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme VS. Maxiboost ON, Bandai Namco sent in a press release including the first screenshots.
We get to see a few images of the game on PlayStation 4 including a matchup screen localized in English.
On top of that, we also get the gorgeous key artwork displaying several iconic mobile suits.
The press release also included a brief blurb explaining the features of the game:
“Set in the globally iconic GUNDAM universe, MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS. MAXIBOOST ON enables players to take 2-on-2 PVP combat to the next level with Mobile Suits spanning the entire breadth of the franchise’s history. In total, MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS. MAXIBOOST ON features 183 playable units from 36 different GUNDAM iterations, each with unique abilities designed to match any fan’s personal playstyle.
Players can choose between three different EX Burst Systems—Fighting Burst, Extend Burst and Shooting Burst—to coordinate with allies and lay waste to all that stand—or fly—in their way.”
We also learn that online gameplay supporting up to four players will include both co-op and PvP, and that audio will be in Japanese, paired with English subtitles.
Last, but not least, we get a comment from Bandai Namco Entertainment America associate brand manager Abelina Villegas.
“The EXTREME VS series is known for its high-octane brand of PVP Mobile Suit battles, and MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS. MAXIBOOST ON is primed to take that style of combat to awesome new heights never-before-seen by GUNDAM fans in the Americas.
We can’t wait for Western fans to get their first taste of the title that’s captivated Japanese arcade-players for years when it finally makes its console debut on the PlayStation 4.”
Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxiboost ON launches worldwide in 2020 exclusively for PS4.
