In Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Gundam Meisters you get to take control of Gundam Exia, Gundam Dyunames, Gundam Kyrios, and Gundam Virtue, the four mobile suits used by the main characters in season one. This game is supposed to stay true to the first season instead of being an original story spin-off. Namco Bandai is putting the game in the “dramatic action” genre because Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Gundam Meisters has an action movie system.
After a meter fills up you enter a scripted movie and press indicated buttons to keep the combo going. The action movie system sounds like a cross between the ougis from the Naruto: Ultimate Ninja series and God of War. Japan gets this on October 16. Chances are unlikely that it will be localized since the anime isn’t airing on TV (yet, RagolSlayer and wario4ever point out it's coming to Sci-Fi in November) , but if you don’t care about the story sequences Mobile Suit Gundam 00: Gundam Meisters appears to be playable regardless of what languages you know.
