The company will also sell two Arsenal Base starter decks based on Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Iron-Blooded Orphans. Each deck will contain cards for five pilots and their Mobile Suits. The decks will allow players to immediately field a full team in Mobile Suit Gundam: Arsenal Base. Those in Japan will be able to purchase a single deck from hobby stores for ¥500 (around $4), or they can pre-order a full package containing both decks at ¥1,100 (around $10) from Premium Bandai and Amazon Japan.

Bandai initially revealed Arsenal Base in January 2021, with plans to release it within the same year. The new arcade game will become a successor to Gundam Try Age, which shut down in May 2021. However, the coronavirus pandemic affected the company’s plans to release it in a timely fashion. It didn’t hold location tests for Arsenal Base until December 2021 and January 2022.

Mobile Suit Gundam: Arsenal Base will officially launch in Japanese arcades on February 24, 2022. Select arcade centers in Japan will have the game one week earlier.
