Gundam Musou coming to North America

Namco Bandai and KOEI announced they would co-publish Gundam Musou in North America under a new name, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam. The version of Dynasty Warriors is scheduled to come out in “late summer” for the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. Previously, Gundam Musou was considered a Playstation 3 exclusive. Namco Bandai, who published the title in Japan, has not announced if they have plans to release the Xbox 360 version in Japan.

    Hope there would be optional Jpn audio, since the US DVDs for the org. Gundam anime only has the Eng. dub…

  • Dynasty Warriors: Gundam? If it wasn’t May already, I would assume that this was just another dumb April Fools joke – but I guess KOEI really _is_ that dumb to tie a completely unrelated game in to a radically different brand name. This is almost akin to making a sci-fi first person shooter and then giving it the Elder Scrolls brand.

    Actually it’s not that far-fetched at all if you think about the gameplay of both games. I was a little surprised too when this cross-over was announced months ago. I mean, destroying hordes of Zakus w/ the Zeta Gundam’s beam saber and machine gun? Yet it sounds satisfying to me (wonder if you can control Char’s Hyaku-shiki). Also, this game sells like hotcakes in Jpn given the strong brand name of the two franchises, it just seems a perfect fit. I’m excited about this since there weren’t that many great Gundam games.

    The slightly strange English title aside, I think it’d be mad fun to do some hack & slash w/ the mobile suits while advancing thru Gundam’s canon storyline, at least more so than killing goblins in Ninety-nine nights.

    Ooh, let’s hope so.
