    THE SCHOOL OF THE UNDEFEATED OF THE EAST!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Bigabu Beaze

      Let the sun be with you.

      • Onizuka Gio Hikari

        Why thank you sir :D boktai ftw!

  • Tre W

    …FINALLY.

    Gundam Breaker was great fun, and I’m sure Shin Gundam Musou will be enjoyable too in its own way.

    But Gundam Vs. is still King among Gundam games IMHO, and it’s good to see that we finally get our turn with the King at home!

  • William Matthews

    Really coming to the Us omg

  • Selcca

    Oh sweet jesus yes!

  • William Matthews

    I want this game and gundam breaker

  • Godmars

    What? No ones playing Extreme?

    • Brion Valkerion

      not anyone with an arcade near them.

      • Godmars

        Talking about the PS3 version already out.

        Should be able to import the “Best” version for $50 or less at this point from Playasia.

      • 愛憎

        How dare you slander me, sir!
        I was playing just the other day :)

  • Tenabrus

    Aaaaand it probably won’t be localized -_-

    • fiks

      not like it needs to, eww dubs

    • ForteWily

      The Legal wrangling for not a big payoff… Yeah, that said I was going to import it anyway

  • Revorse

    How import friendly are the VS games? I wanna take a crack at this.

    • KyoyaHibari

      It’s technically a fighter series, so it is easily import friendly. There are some bits here and there that you may need to look up for emblem unlock requirements and such, but that aside, the layout is fairly simple and has some diagrams and English to help a bit.

  • Reki Honoo

    I wish this would get localized

  • KyoyaHibari

    I knew it was inevitable after all this time, but still I only got Extreme VS recenty because I wasn’t 100% sure…*sigh* oh well, I’ll try to make the most of Extreme VS for now.

  • Tyler Sedrick

    Bought Extreme VS a few months ago But I don’t mind importing the new one Gotta love Gundam.

  • TheBrett

    Is the source on this info listed anywhere?

  • Nate

    It better have 4 player split screen. I’m looking at you wasted opportunity extreme vs. Made me so mad I skipped that game, as big of a fan I am too.

    • Gilbert D

      lol? 1v1 split screen was ass in EXVS. 2v2 splitscreen would be terrible.

  • Kaihedgie

    ACK!

    I just got Extreme Vs last mont D8

    • fiks

      Ack nothing! You get to have fun with awesome netplay for 6+ months and get better than those who wait till FB.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Haha. My procrastination on picking up Extreme VS paid off.

    • KyoyaHibari

      You lucky bastard, I caved in and bought it last month. XD

      • fiks

        you get to have fun with it for 6+ months and be better at the game than solomon_kano when fb is out!

    • DemonShadowX

      Lol same here, I was just thinking about importing VS… .

    • fiks

      not really, since you’ve missed out on months of fun netplay matches and you’ll be months/years behind other players who are used to the game

      • Solomon_Kano

        I can live with that. Probably won’t do too much online play, unless some of my friends import it as well.

  • WingsOfEternity

    I imported the original Extreme VS near release and still yet to complete the missions. I REALLY hope this one has better split screen and balance. (Turn A turned to trash lol)

    • fiks

      exvfsb has much better balance. i’d still avoid red frame and red qubeley though, but turn a is quite good now.
      also, often what a “weak” mech needs is just a partner mech that complements it well.

      • WingsOfEternity

        Yea I really missed the overpowered Turn A on Next+. So according to TheBrett, Wing Zero(TV) is now the strongest 3000 unit in FB which is hilarious because I remembered when my friends all just pick Wing Zero(TV) on Next+ because its so easy to play but hits like a frickin’ truck.

  • kroufonz

    woohoo

    i’ve been holding out buying the original for this!

  • Fox

    How is this different from EXVS? Isn’t just like 3 or 4 new suits?

    • Aesma

      ….3 or 4 new suits? …check the Full Boost website. There are a lot of suits being added…

    • fiks

      at least 30 new suits, lots of balance changes that make like 60% of the mechs quite a bit stronger and make a few dumb mechs(qanta) not stupid anymore, lots of mechs got new moves and tricks, new music, a ton more stages, better arcade mode, awakening system changed, etc.

    • Kaihedgie

      Here’s a list:

      RX-0 Unicorn 02 Banshee (UC)

      YAMS-132 Rozen Zulu (UC)

      Leos-Type has three Phases just like the original Extreme Gundam and thus are treated as separate units instead of switchable mission packs like the Strike and Impulse have.

      • Fox

        Thank you. I’d been looking for a list online, but all I found was a “20 new suits” mention on Siliconera.

        Can’t say I find the additions terribly exciting. I may get it after it goes on sale, but I’ve never really been fond of the VS series ever since it became GvG. Personally, I think an overproliferation of Gundams is ruinous for game or show.

        • Kaihedgie

          Oh darn, I forgot to add Xi and Hi-Nu

          Personally, I had no problem ever since the change was made cause it only begged the question of “what would may favorite suit be like in this kind of game”.

          I highly recommend getting this though not just for the selection, but for the fast-paced gameplay, too. I’m not exaggerating when I say this game should be at a fighting game tournament

          • Fox

            Isn’t Hi-Nu in EXVS? I thought it was. It’s been a long time since I played.

            I’ve played a lot of the VS games, so I pretty much know what to expect. It’s just that the core cooncept of the game, post ZAFT2+, hasn’t really appealed to me. I prefer asymmetrical gameplay–GvG is too balanced for my taste.

            I much prefer something along the lines of Gundam Senki, where I can take on much stronger suits in a customized Zaku or something.

          • Kaihedgie

            And you can

  • ssj3gokou24

    Welp there goes another $100 dollars.

  • 永次

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!

  • Inuyakira

    YESS!!! YESSS!!! YESSSS!!!!!!!!! FINALLY!!!!! I SO CANNOT WAIT!!!! THE SOMEWHERE 2014 CANT COME SOON ENOUGH!!!!

  • monkey king

    YESSSSSSS Impulse come to me..

  • 愛憎

    Y’know, I was playing the other day, and thinking that I wished it would come to PS3 soon. Otherwise, I’ll be spending too much money at the arcade..

    Can’t wait to get all the Banshee that I want.

  • venomz09

    lol ps3.

    forget about the ps4 eh.

    way to drop the ball.

  • eilegz

    HYPED, my wishes for this game

    1- online cooperative in arcade and mission mode (they dropped the ball on extreme vs compared to PSP gundam vs gundam pls)

    2- LAN or system link mode its good for tournaments and hopefully it push more events outside arcade tournament

    3- English subtitles on everything (or well at least on the menus)

    Hopefully this time they do a perfect port

  • Joshua Cuyos

    My only complaint is that why only release it now when the PS4 is about to be released?

  • abnerayag

    enjoyed this on PSP (Rengou VS Zaft portable), but this just looks bad, the same drab/boring maps, just made HD. on the plus side, 90+ gundams from throughout the series.

    could they fit all this on a vita perhaps?
