Mobile Suit Gundam: Gihren’s Ambition Adds Gundam UC On PSP

By Spencer . July 12, 2011 . 12:03pm

gun1Namco Bandai is bringing Mobile Suit Gundam: Gihren’s Ambition to PSP. Unlike other Gundam titles this is a strategy game, perhaps similar to Advance Wars or Daisenryaku, set during the One Year War. Players can select scenarios from commanders and Gundam pilots like Amuro Ray.

 

First released for Sega Saturn, the PSP version has updated attack scenes, a new anime opening, and characters from Mobile Suit Gundam UC. While you can control units from Gundam UC, Namco Bandai did not create a scenario for this series.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Gihren’s Ambition comes out on August 25 in Japan.

    I always get sad when we get news about PSP games like this. Damn piracy!
    I hate it!!! > >

      Actually, piracy didnt seem to stop Namco Bandai from bringing out games such as all the Naruto ones, on PSP, here…so there is hope.

        Why are all your posts so stupid? There is no hope for this game, the last 2 did not get localized and the same will happen with this one.

        Localizing Naruto games is easy because they always get decent sales, but a niche game like this wouldn’t do well, especially with the status of the PSP in the west.

          Don’t be so harsh lol. We can always hope……hope…….. “Runs to the corner and cry” BAMCOOOOOOO!!!!

      Frankly, we wouldn’t get it even if piracy wasn’t an issue. Gundam strategy games aren’t exactly in high demand.

      We didn’t even get the PS2 editions of Gihren’s Greed, and that was a system with excellent sales in the West.

    All right Gundam Unicorn!

    Hopefully we will see “Le Cygne” from “Ecole du Ciel” in Gundam and SRW games soon….

    Oh man, do I see the Black Tri-Stars in Gelgoogs.

  • SeventhEvening

    I’ve always thought of Gihren’s Greed being like Nobunaga’s Ambition than anything else. It is way more hardcore and in depth than advance wars.

    • Blacksofa

      I wish they made a spin-off title that was like Advance Wars.

      • SeventhEvening

        You should try the SD Gundam G Generation series. Very similar to advance wars, but with a cool unit upgrading system. Since it is like advance wars, it is relatively import friendly, unlike Gihren’s Greed.

    Wait wait wait Gundam Unicorn? Does this mean i can have Gihren army to fight Full Frontal and the Vist Foundation…..

    Man, looking at those animated screenshots makes me wish that animated shorts (such as the ones from Blood of Zeon) would make a return.

    Unfortunately, those screenshots are probably just from the intro or something.
