SD Gundam Battle Alliance is just past a month from its August 25, 2022 release date, and excitement is building. To commemorate reaching 50,000 followers on the official Twitter account, Bandai Namco uploaded the SD Gundam Battle Alliance intro movie to its YouTube channel.
Check it out below.
The intro video emphasizes the multiversal nature of Battle Alliance‘s premise. Teams of Gundams from across multiple series take on similarly grouped villains. For example, the RX-78-2, Zeta, and ZZ Gundam face off against the Zeong, Quebeley, and The O. The G-Self and Turn A defend against the Turn X, while Reborns Gundam and 00 Gundam fight on the sidelines. Master Gundam calls in several Destroy Gundams to eliminate the God Gundam/Destiny Gundam duo. Wing Gundam and Unicorn Gundam take on the Neo Zeong and Epyon. The SD Gundam Battle Alliance intro also previews the game’s large-scale boss battles, where players confront mega-sized enemies. These include the Big Zam, Shamblo, Devil Gundam, Apsaras III, and Calamity War Mobile Armor.
In addition to the intro, the SD Gundam Battle Alliance website also received an update. In addition to confirming more canon Gundam mobile suit designs, it detailed some of the game-original characters and suits. The player character is assisted by Yuno Astarte and Sakura Slash, who act as navigators. The game-original Gundam Latreia is piloted by Hermes Mercury, a talented programmer who stands in opposition to the player.
Bandai Namco also shared some SD Gundam Battle Alliance gameplay earlier in the week. Teams of three players got together in co-op to face off against large foes from Gundam: The 08th MS Team and Gundam Unicorn.
SD Gundam Battle Alliance will release on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on August 25, 2022. The Switch version release date is unconfirmed.
