Namco Bandai’s latest wave of downloadable Mobile Suits will be bringing us Acguy, Z Gundam and the RX-79 Gundam Ground Type in Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Full Boost for the PlayStation 3. Famitsu shares a closer look at the new challengers.
Acguy (with Haman Karn)
Acguy will have all kinds of close ranged sliding attacks, along with jump hits to go with its repertoire of tricky movements. It’ll also have combos that calls out for assistance from escorts to help beat down enemies.
As shown in the above images, Acguy will have different kinds of attacks, making it one of the more versatile Mobile Suits in the game. It may look cute, but as they say, looks can be deceiving!
RX-79 Gundam Ground Type (with Shiro Amada)
Using its 100mm machinegun and 180mm cannon, the Gundam Ground Type excels at both close and long-ranged combat, with a cost of only 1,000 to boot.
The main cannon’s shot is actually pretty fast, so it makes it easy to aim for a devastating blow. The machinegun isn’t as strong, but it has the ability to change directions while shooting, so reading your opponents’ movements while shooting it will be a key to using the weapon.
Z Gundam (with Roux Louka)
The Z Gundam specializes in attacks that do heavy damage with many ways to shoot down opponents. It excels in mid-ranged combat with its ability to manually reload and shoot three shots at a time.
It also has a dummy balloon in the shape of a rock that makes opponent Mobile Suits’ assistants aim for it instead of you.
The grenade launcher can shoot two shots at a time, and the Z Gundam can even throw its beam rifle, without having to waste a bullet. Its special attack is strong enough to take out just about any opponent in one shot.
All three Mobile Suits will be available for 400 yen each, as part of the game’s third wave of downloadable characters, which will be available for download on March 5 for PlayStation 3.
