    The game costs 9000+ yen, and they’re already releasing DLC just a week after release…

    • icecoffemix

      And it still sold 70% of its shipment the first day… Japan loves to be ripped off sadly.

      • Pdugna

        nah it’s diehard fans if i had the extra cash I would pay for everything in this game also. It’s a awesome game.

      • Godmars

        Still comes with enough content to justify buying the game.

        • Kaihedgie

          Other companies tend to charge you less for more

          • dis be gud

            Bandai isn’t “other companies”. In case people haven’t noticed, Bandai has a monopoly on Gundamn and related goods. They can set the price to whatever they want. Not to mention 7000¥is pretty standard for a vidya game in Japan and first day/week/month DLC is even more so. The premium G-Sound edition is kind of a rip though.

            Also, >MS-06FS Zaku II SM custom.
            I can’t tell if this mistake was made as the result of actually doing a bit of background research or not. The screenshot right there specifically said it’s the Zaku II HM type.

          • Kaihedgie

            That’s because Bandai is the one making Gundam in the first place, not that they have “a monopoly” on it.

          • KnifeAndFork

            Sunrise makes Gundam not Bandai.

            Bandai just holds the license to make the merchandise be it toys, kits or games etc. They still have to answer to Sunrise.

          • Kaihedgie

            They make plenty of things Sunrise didn’t animate

          • dis be gud

            I don’t see the connection between what you’re saying and what Knife’n’Fork said. Bandai is a large publisher, of course they would do stuff that’s not Gundam.

            Going back to Gundam, if Bandai is the only company that’s making and publishing the majority of Gundam games, that is what would be considered to be a ‘monopoly’.

            Usually monopoly applies to a common resource one group hoards, then manipulates access to or cost of to their own unfair advantage. And Bandai outright owns Gundam.

            The real sad truth is that they have to choose between offering a $80-$90 at $60 to sell in the US, then worry about JP gamers importing it back at the cheaper price. Same issue with videos, which is why BR anime is offered as English or JP only.

          • dis be gud

            Okay, so thanks for proving that I’m using the word correctly? Bandai does not “outright own” Gundam. Sunrise just gave them the license and other benefits in regards to the series since Bandai has been working with them since the start. The cooperation and benefits and whatever that Sunrise grants to Bandai has led to them forming a monopoly on anything Gundam.

          • Godmars

            Pretty sure that Bandai owns Sunrise. That that’s why they eventually stopped distributing videos in the West or at least the US. Namco, Bandai and Sunrise all exist under one roof, only the first two call all of the shots.

          • dis be gud

            Oh, right. I keep forgetting that Bandai brought Sunrise almost 20 years ago. -_-;
            My bad then.

            Still doesn’t change the fact that the Gundam market is a monopoly under Bandai though. Even if they own the series. It’s still considered monopoly since it’s a type of good coming from only one supplier.

          • Kaihedgie

            Which doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Why keep your biggest money maker all to yourself?

          • Godmars

            JP video collections are 1-3 episodes per DVD/BR at $50-$80, while the US are 4-6 episodes per disc at $40 price at the most. When the dollar lost value while the Yen gained it, and the US anime market shrunk, they just said screw it.

            But really, might as well ask why Disney is roping in all things SW under their roof. Aside from game, which they both shut down but are farming out.

          • KnifeAndFork

            What does that have to do with what I said? Bandai is a toy and game publisher. Of course they would have other interests besides Gundam.
            But Gundam is owned by Sunrise and Bandai has the monopoly on making games and merchandise for them.

          • KnifeAndFork

            The G Sound is a ripoff considering you never had to pay extra for that before.
            Did the same thing with Kamen Rider Battride War and will also do for the upcoming J-Stars

        • icecoffemix

          Probably depend on who you ask but yeah.

    • Ferrick

      do note that the 9000+ yen version is the premium edition

    • 永次

      Both DLCs are clones of existing Mobile Suits but with another Pilot, they are unnecesary, the game has 98 Mobile Suits, Arcade route with 6 routes + 6 routes EX, a Full Boost Mission with 120 missions, online mode for player and ranked matches, Arcade split-screen and online, Full Boost Mission online, around 70 songs, and, the most important thing, is a fucking ultra epic game with one of the best gameplay in the world, a lot of fanservice, deep, competitive and yes, is fucking awesome.

      BTW, I’m not going to buy the DLCs.
      PD: The game is around 6780Y in websites like Nippon-Yasan (around 48€) plus the shipment (around 5€ of shipment).

  • DanielGearSolid

    The Wing Zero!!!

    • 永次

      Wing Zero is already in Full Boost without DLCs, and Wing Zero Endless Waltz too.

      • DanielGearSolid

        Uhh thx?

  • Ric Vazquez

    Wait, what?! Quatre as the pilot of Wing Zero?!

    • Ferrick

      yes, he was the pilot for Wing Zero for a short time

      • Ric Vazquez

        Man it’s been so long since I last saw so I did not remember that.

    • Kaihedgie

      He was the very first pilot

      • Ric Vazquez

        I haven’t seen it in years so I did not remember that fact, I’m going to have to buy the series for old time’s sake.

  • omeganeko

    quatre’s ex special looks really useful.
