Gundam Breaker Simulates Friends For Players Who Don’t Want To Play Online

By Spencer . April 13, 2013 . 6:00pm


Gundam Breaker is designed to be an online plastic Gundam model fighting game. There’s a single player mode too and for players that don’t like playing online some of these missions might be difficult. That’s where ally pilots come in. You can add virtual friends in missions with personalities like a big sister type that’s also a gamer or a maniac Zion model builder.


During missions, the Captain and Operator tell you about the state of the battlefield.

    “Simulates friends”…

    • Always No. 9

      Sad, isn’t it?

      • Sergio Briceño

        I think it’s a cool idea. I mean, there is no way I could get a friend similar to the descriptions above, so it will be fun seeing what kind of dialogue they come up with.

        Also, online friends aren’t real friends. Online multiplayer killed what used to be the real gaming experience with friends, which is local multiplayer (not included in every multiplayer game lately). And since I doubt I can play local multiplayer on this game, I think I will go for the simulated friends.

        • cirE

          Local multiplayer is still around. It’s just a lot more rare. It’s also not very successful when it does happen.

          The best example of local multiplayer I can think of in the past few years was Blur. It was a great mix between Mari Cart and Twisted Metal. It was awesome, but it didn’t sell well and the developer went under.

          • Its a cool idea, but obviously its not going to be perfect.

          • Syn

            Wouldnt perfection be actual “real friends”??? Thats kind of far reaching dont you think??

        • ThomasTruong

          Ever since I and my friends graduated from High School (Starting to get close to a decade now), online multiplayer is now one of the only ways we can meet with each other. It’s impossible for some of us to travel several hours, or across entire countries, to come over for local play anymore. And the friends I have locally come over all the time for Rock Band, Mario Party, and other experiences regularly. Whichever method is more convenient for the occasion serves its purpose without conflicting with each other.

          The experience is still there, just not 1:1 when online, and it beats not being able to communicate with them at all like we would be back in the early 90s.

          • Sergio Briceño

            You are right. Online does serve a purpose. That is when a developer thinks about including it aside from local multiplayer and not instead of it. I just said that “sometimes” the only way to play multiplayer is by doing it online and not because your friends can’t come over, but because some developer thought that local wouldn’t work with game A and decided they would try to go online only,

      • Sebastian Lothian

        Not really. There are many times when I would rather play alone so this would definitely help me and others like me.

      • Always No. 9

        lol, getting down voted because I was telling the truth? Mkay. #9

    Just a correction;

    -Gundam Astray Red Flame


    Red FRAME!

    It’s about as bad as Orbital Flame in the dub for ZoE Dolores, i although understandable considering how obscure Astray is.

  • Spencer, it’s Zeon not zion

  • zed grim

    north america release please namco.

  • ThomasTruong

    I love features like this in 4 player MH-like games. Sometimes, my friends aren’t online and sometimes I just want to grind alone. Good on you, NBGI.

  • Spirit Macardi

    I know it isn’t the “correct” translation, but I prefer the name Burning Gundam to God Gundam x3

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Simulates personality???
    Big sister type?, Yandere?, Moe?, Tsundere?, Kuudere??? even Imouto type?????
    The possibility is ENDLESSS!!!^_^

    • Abyan Haidar

      I’ll make Nyaruko type then~~~muhehehehehehehehe

    • Visa Vang

      Ojou-sama type. nuff said.

    • Akuosa

      So many possibilities that you’re basically sliping to a different kind of game altogether, I’m afraid…

  • TheExile285

    more games should do this. my step brother is always hogging the bandwith with his 360 so I don’t play much online

    • ZEROthefirst

      Kick him off of the FPS wagon and make him play some real games.

      • TheExile285

        actually Madden games are the problem >_<

        • Neophoton

          Any chance he’ll budge and allow you some time online with your PS3?

          • TheExile285

            Yeah when he’s asleep. That doesn’t happen till around 11pm-12am though….

          • Neophoton

            Ouch. I know that feeling — My sister had her 360 running at the same time my brother had his Wii online (mostly used it for web browsing) leaving my PS3 to get bogged down to a crawl. Never gets old with siblings and bandwidth wars.

          • ZEROthefirst

            I fixed that problem with my step sister by changing the password on the router. I have the router and everything set up in my room. So what do you do when a 12 year old hogs the bandwidth for Facebook and other stupid things like that all day? Change the password and feign ignorance when she can’t get on XD

  • Jake Deerberg

    So uuuh… when… when is this available… like… when…. for vita… This is literally my dream gundam game from when I was obsessed with G Gundam in grade school.

  • Seraph

    It’s funny how I actually have a friend who IS a maniac Zeon model builder…

  • evilmajikman

    Now if they could just add in a english option like Anarchy Reigns did…

  • Z3

    I want Turn A and Arios in the game

  • Vash bane

    i hope it get localized >.<

    • eilegz

      what its the last gundam game that it got released here… oh yeah i got the answer dynasty warrior gundam 3.

      we need more of those maybe 4 version its more like 2 and less cramped like the 3

      • Vash bane

        havnt played 2 or 3 are they good?

        • eilegz

          they are good ton of fan service personally the best its 2… but get japanese version otherwise horrible the dubs (and translation) and the lack of original gundam songs kill all the essence

  • ZEROthefirst

    I hope they add in the Gundam X Divider or the Gundam Double X from After War Gundam X, of course adding both would be a bonus :D.

  • zed grim

    lets do a petition.

  • eilegz

    so i can have 00 core, strike freedom wings, wing zero rifle, and turn A moonlight buttlefly in one suit this its going to be awesome… wants this game

  • Always No. 9


    Gamer: “Where a merh frands?!”

    Developers: “Don’t worry dork, we got you covered. Simulated friends ho!”

    Gamer: “Urghgh, merh frands?!?! YEEAARRRGGHHH!!!”

    Developers: “ಠ_ಠ……What have we done?!”

    • Syn

      • Always No. 9

        Always No.9: *bows* Thank you, thank you! *audience vigorously starts to clap*

        1 person: “…..Yer hurd merh freelings!”

        Always No. 9:


        ( •_•)>⌐■-■

  • Kaihedgie

    Dat white Gundam

  • “You can add virtual friends in missions with personalities like a big
    sister type that’s also a gamer or a maniac Zion model builder.”

    Okay, but how does that determine what sort of playstyle they’ll take?

    • Baka, big sisters are the protective type. Gamer Onee-san is the a bit nerdy loveable Onee-san, Zeon Maniac Onee-san is the totally crazy yandere Onee-san.

      • …I meant “playstyle” as in how they’d play the game, not how they’d flirt with you.

        • “Protective type” as in they support and defend you~ At least that’s how I’d do it~

  • Threule

    This could be good if you dont have internet or if you are socially akward.

  • I love this game!!
