Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn (titled Shin Gundam Musou in Japan) is coming to America, Namco Bandai announced today. Here’s Namco’s summary of the game from a press release sent out this morning:
Set at an era called “Universal Century”, giant mecha known as Mobile Suits are used to wage war across land, sea, air and space. Featuring Mobile Suits and their pilots from over 30 years of Gundam anime and manga, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn lets players engage in battles across the Gundam series with the largest roster of Mobile Suits seen in the series so far. Relive the exciting battles and animation sequences with the largest number of missions ever spanning the entire Gundam series including Mobile Suit Gundam SEED in Official Mode. Fans can also select Mobile Suit pilots to operate any unlocked Mobile Suit in the game for crossover missions in Ultimate Mode.
Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn will allow players to control massive Mobile Armor units for the first time in the series. Mobile Armor units tower over the opposition and deliver absolute destruction to the enemy with the Mobile Armor’s unique weapons. Visual enhancements allow Mobile Suits and stages to reflect a war-torn world as players battle through hoards of enemies across each scenario. As players complete missions they will be able to upgrade their Mobile Suit and weapon systems. Weapon upgrades will be reflected graphically with increased range and power making it easy for players to see their Mobile Suit’s progress.
Players will also be able to select their favorite Mobile Suit and band together for intense split-screen gameplay or online co-op multiplayer action.
Dynasty Warriors Gundam Reborn will be released for PlayStation 3 this Summer “throughout the Americas” as a download title via PlayStation Network.
Update: Tecmo Koei have announced that they will publish the game in Europe this Summer as well. In Europe, the game will be released both at retail as well digitally.
Update 2: While Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn was a PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita title in Japan, we’re going to miss out on the Vita version. Siliconera confirmed with a Bandai Namco representative that Dynasty Warriors: Gundam Reborn will be PS3 only in the Americas.
