Famitsu mention that Another Century’s Episode Portable has no story mode. Instead, you’ll be allowed to select the missions you want to go on. Clearing these missions allows one to accumulate Ace points, which you can use to unlock more mechs. Another Century’s Episode Portable also has a cooperative multiplayer mode for up to three players via local ad-hoc.
