Gundam Versus will finally bring the Japanese fighting series to western consoles


Bandai Namco’s Gundam series of 3D fighting games have largely remained exclusive to Japan, but now the publisher is shaking things up by offering an official western release of its upcoming entry, Gundam Versus, on PS4.

While the series was often well regarded by its Japanese audience, Bandai Namco only once attempted to bring the niche series to western territories by releasing an English version of the Vita spin-off Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force. Western critics were mostly not kind to that one, though it was often considered by fans to be a watered down version of its console brethren.

Gundam Versus, however, isn’t a side-entry, but rather the next mainline installment in the niche series. It will feature over 90 mechs from the famous anime franchise, with options for 2v2 and 3v3 battles in both splitscreen and online. This will make it the first entry in the series to support up to six players online.
