Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 is out today in the U.S. As a reminder, Namco released yet another colorful batch of screenshots for the game. New additions include mobile suits from Gundam 00, Gundam UC and After War Gundam X to name a few. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 has over 50 playable characters and more than 70 mobile suits, if you’re interested in big numbers.

 

The visuals across all the series in Gundam 3 are cel-shaded to give the game more of an anime feel. Here’s a comparison with Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 so you can tell the difference between the previous games and this one.

    It’s a lot better than the 2nd one. Been playing since yesterday.

    my gosh i’m so hot for this game…but this time, sadly, i had to choose preordering Da Capo 2 (at hendane) over DW:G3… Loran and Sophie ojou-sama are just going to have to wait a few months for me i guess…

    I received this today, lets just say, Setsuna F Seiei is epic! Got a trophy guide/roadmap to use?

  • Altritter

    Game came out yesterday, though… picked it up myself.  Really enjoying it so far though, it’s my first Dynasty Warriors Gundam game but it’s fun as hell.

  • Christian Wright

    im a little disappointed about the original music being out. going to import it instead. gundam unicorn’s theme is too awesome.

    • Aara_Malik_Davoodi

      Do the Asian-region games usually have an English option? I was thinking not in this case since the Japanese version came out like 6 months ahead of the others.

      • Christian Wright

        some do. the newest virtual on did. the asian version is compatible with american 360s and goes for a fair price as well on play asia

    • LynxAmali

      Do you have a 360? If so, you could always use the custom soundtrack option.
      That’s what I’m doing.
      Also; no Scott McNeil as Garrod.
      We get Axl’s VA from Megaman X7/8.
      Not to mention Zero’s VA as Knight Gundam (Don’t quote me on this.) We just needed Master Asia’s and Mark Gatha to have a complete Megaman X team.

    So question for anyone owning the English version…does the English version have Japanese voices this time? Did they remove anything important?

    I considered importing before, but now it is out..I may want to get it here instead.

      JPN Voices are in.

      Ive heard people were upset about BGM missing in the NA version. I can’t confirm it though.

      • Christian Wright

        no gundam unicorn theme :(

          I think there was never any licensed themes in the English version of Gundam Musou. I had Gundam Musou 2 and DW:Gundam 2, and I was pretty bummed when I was greeted by the normal rock-ish song DW usually has, rather than instrumental pieces of Gundam themes. That’s just the way it is, I guess.

          • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

            I think the BGM in DW:G3 is pretty good/memorable though. Though had to turn it down since it would drown out the character voices.

    Picked it up the first day and am quite pleased so far.
    A little disappointed that 00 gets so much attention, but I suppose that’s to be expected… Of all the things I don’t like… I simply wish Schwarz actually had his Gundam Spiegel.
    ( Also, as with most Koei Tecmo games, the online lag is pretty severe. Lest it’s just my personal experience. )

    Let’s go, Burning Gundam!

  • Kris

    Is it bad that I kind of want this just because of the cell-shaded robots? I’m not a huge fan of Gundam or Dynasty Warriors per se, but it looks pretty beautiful…

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      It looks glorious when specials are activated. Gorgeous!

      Unless you can stand the Musou series, don’t come near it I guess… However, if it’s your first Musou game, I think that you’ll find quite a lot of enjoyment before you put it down.
