Namco Bandai is reviving another one of Banpresto’s SD crossover series. The Great Battle brought variations of Gundam, Kamen Rider, and Ultraman together in a single game. Great Battle Full Blast for PSP will do the same.
This video is from The Great Battle IV, a Super Famicom entry in the series.
Freedom Gundam, the original Gundam, Kamen Rider, Kamen Rider Decade, Ultraman, and Ultraman Mebius are confirmed characters. In each stage, you get to pick three of them. The game has a total 36 assist characters, twelve from each series, so it sounds like Namco Bandai has plenty to reveal. Reserve The Great Battle and you’ll get even more assist characters. Early copies include a product code for: Justice Gundam, Gun Cannon, Ultraman Hirari, Zoffy (Ultraman series), Kamen Rider #2, and Kamen Rider Kuuga.
Great Battle Full Blast will come out on March 1 in Japan. Pick up the Twin Battle Box for 11,530 yen ($150) and you’ll get Battle Dodgeball 3, a new sports game from Banpresto’s Super Famicom series, and an eight CD soundtrack collection.
