Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories Gives Gundam: Zeonic Front A Makeover

By Spencer . March 31, 2014 . 2:32pm

Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories is a compilation of spinoff Gundam games with remakes of other Side Story titles like Mobile Suit Gundam: Zeonic Front. Originally released for PlayStation 2, Zeonic Front is set during the One Year War, but instead of playing the Earth Federation you control a unit in the Principality of Zeon.


In addition to improving the graphics Bandai Namco Games redid the HUD and tweaked the gameplay using the systems from Missing Link.


Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories comes out on May 29 for PlayStation 3.

    Zeonic Front was awesome. That game had a lot of depth. Too bad this surely has less than no chance of being localized.

    • Digital-Devil

      I wished this would get localized too. The fanbase really has to contact Namco/Bandai and let them know we want more Gundam games.I’ve tweeted them a few times but one person isn’t going to get a company to listen. It’s also like they forget that the whole reason Gundam Crossfire didn’t sell was becasue it was a terrible game not because there was no interest in the property. It’s been 7 years since that game came out Namco/Bandai have made way better Gundam games since then. I recommend playing Crossfire’s follow up Gundam Battlefield Record UC 0081 which improved everything that was wrong with Crossfire.

      Indeed, Zeonic Front was awesome. One of the rare games where I fully enjoyed briefing missions and hearing what your team has to say. It had kickass soundtrack as well. ˇˇ Shame that there weren’t more of squad-based, in grunt-shoes, kind of Gundam games. :3

    Is it just a graphics overhaul or a mechanics overhaul? As great as Zenoic Front and those other spinoff games were, I’m hoping for at least some improvement in controls: the older games in particular were pretty clunky. An update to the level of Gundam Battle Universe/Gundam Assault Survive level controls would be nice, at least.

    … actually, now that I think about it, I just want a new entry in that series.

      Just read the article. Hahah.

        Sigh… I knew this was gonna happen to me some day. My bad.

    • Fox

      It’s kind of hard to tell.

      It seems as though they’re just remaking all the ZF and other Side Story missions in the new game. So don’t expect to see all the cinematics/briefings.

  • Hmm never heard of this. Will keep my eye on it.

    Can somebody give me link to video?

    Hearing Amuro count his kills as he destroyed your squad in the original Zeonic Front game was so horrifying.

  • tarbis

    SIEG ZEON!!!!
