Bandai Namco Amusement will release Mobile Suit Gundam: Bonds of the Battlefield II on July 27, 2021 in Japanese arcades. It is a direct sequel to the first Mobile Suit Gundam: Bonds of the Battlefield arcade game that launched in 2006. One of the selling points of the Bonds of the Battlefield series is how you use both hands and feet in order to control your mobile suit, as if you are piloting a real Gundam. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
The game uses three monitors in order to simulate the feeling of being inside of a mobile suit’s cockpit. Not only that, but you operate your mobile suit through hand and feet controls, similar to how pilots do in the anime. It is a team game, allowing you to work with teammates to destroy enemy mobile suits and bases in order to achieve victory. In addition, as the game takes place during the One Year War, there are special cutscenes based on the original 1979 anime.
