Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 Brings Cel-Shaded Mobile Suits To Consoles

By Spencer . February 4, 2011 . 9:02am


Namco Bandai confirmed Gundam Musou 3 will be released overseas as Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3. This installment has more of an anime feel since Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 uses cel-shaded graphics. Check out this past post for a comparison between the two styles.


Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 has over 50 playable characters and more than 70 mobile suits. New series covered in this title include: Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, After War Gundam X, and Gundam Unicorn. (Yes, Gundam Double X is in it.) Developer Tecmo Koei tweaked the gameplay too adding elements from other Warriors games. You can use Partner Strike to summon an ally into battle, a feature first seen in the Warriors Orochi line. Emergency Dash allows players to evade and cancel certain enemy attacks by utilizing some of your Mobile Suit’s boost meter. Recovery Gauge lets players restore some heath in the heat of battle.


Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this summer.

    Sweet, Namco made an already good week better.

    • Hexen

      its Namco Bandai Frenzy week

  • Marvelous! Here’s hoping Namco goes and allows switching languages, which was oddly absent from DWG2 but present in DWG1.

  • HarryHodd

    Yes! I didn’t think this would make it.

  • sdragon21

    This looks awesome. Can’t wait.

  • Mobile Suit Gundam 00, Day 1 Baby Day 1!!! I love that series, Exia and Kirios better be included!!!

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      The list of playable mobile suits is already out, considering the game was released in December in Japan.

      • Dude SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

        • hystzen

          Exia not in game, Krios is DLC along with rest of gundam meisters

          • Aara_Malik_Davoodi


          • hystzen

            correct Arios not Kyrios..they seemed to have ignored season 1 of 00 and went straight to 2nd season gundams

          • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

            which is sad. Since it’s DLC they could’ve just released both seasons

        • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

          What did I spoil?

          • I was afraid to click the link, there arent any storyline spoilers there? The last time I searched for info on a game, I was spoiled when I searched.

      • Oh thanks, I took the risk and looked, my favorites are in there for 00! Woot woot, Im excited!!!

  • neo_firenze

    …continuing to nod approvingly at everything I’m hearing out of Namco-Bandai.

  • Wackoramaco87

    Oooh~! As long as one does not have to play any of the previous games, I can’t wait to get it! =D

  • I hope it will have Japanese voice option

  • Barrit

    Awesome, this will be the first Gundam Warriors game I’ve played and it looks sooo good. Splitscreen & online 4-player co-op? Yes please!

    Here’s to hoping they bring over dual audio to go with that anime feel!

  • Happy Gamer

    Lol wow this looks fantastic!

  • Japanese voice option please <3

  • kazzy0

    my big question would be if the DLC units will be included on disc, or if they will remain dlc, and also if there are plans to for other units.

  • Been waiting for this announcement for a long time now. :)

  • Arcm

    The inner gundam fanboy in me is BURNING WITH PASSION!!! Summer is looking great! : )


  • YES. As a long-time Gundork, I am pleased.

  • Yes With Dynasty Warriors 7 and Dynasty Warrior Gundam 3 this can’t get any better and oh wait forgot Tales of Grace F also is coming out. Don’t pinch me this is awesome.

  • Summer can’t come any faster now.

  • maxroy

    Please for the love of all that is holy let the mission mode system not require making ‘friends’ to get the mobile suit licences for all characters!

    Can’t wait to waste away my square/x button with this though.

  • Namco Bandai. Guys. Fellas. Dudeguyfellas. I am happy with whatever it is we have between each other at the moment.

  • Put in Gundam soundtracks this time or no buy.

  • PrinceHeir

    yes at least namco is bringing one of their mecha games here :)

    here’s hoping for more SRW :D

    • Guest

      Armored Core 5 lol

  • Zal_Yagun

    SMOKIN JESUS TITTY CINNAMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11


  • < Happy! looks a lot more awesome than the first two, and I'm really hoping for dual audio and some nice soundtracks, as that was a bit lacking or nonexistent in 2.

  • Guest

    My main problem with this series is the enemies in Gundam do not behave like that (stand around like dumb grunts clumped together to me demolished).

  • This is great to hear it is coming over. I just wish they could get Mark Hildreth for Heero. Though the guy who voiced him in DWG/2 Did a pretty nice job.

  • GVmanX

    Now if only all the tracks in the soundtrack and the original JP voices come over with it. *drools*
