The next Mobile Suit Gundam game for PlayStation 3 will be free. Famitsu announced Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation, which is being made by Gundam Memories developer B.B. Studio.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation is an online action game where you control Gundam in 6 on 6 battles. The goal is simple – crush your enemies. A screenshot shows a radar in the top right, multiple weapons to switch between, and text chat in the bottom left corner. Namco Bandai is planning for this title to be a deep game players can enjoy for a long time for free.
Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation will be released as a PlayStation Network download at the end of June. Between March 29 and 31, Details on how Namco Bandai plans on making a profit on Battle Operation were not announced.

Famitsu has a blowout on Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation, a free to play downloadable Gundam game for PlayStation 3. This game is a six on six team Gundam game where you side with either the Federation or Zeon. While mobile suits are blasting each other with beam rifles, you can also run around on foot as a pilot. Pilots can sneak into enemy territory, place bombs, and blow up an opponent’s base. As a pilot, you get a rocket launcher to target kneecaps and can also repair mechs.
Namco Bandai says players will be able to customize mobile suits to be well rounded, snipers or melee mechs. The game even has a grappling system for players that want to get up close and personal. When you tackle another player you press a button and if the defending player presses the same button they can escape. Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation also has a cover system for players that prefer guns to metal fists.

Winners receive parts to customize their mech and pilot after battle. Famitsu has screenshots of those, but do not say if Namco Bandai plans on selling additional parts as paid downloadable content. Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation goes live at the end of June when the game is available for PSN.

    1. Well, there's still the cost of translating to another language.

      Damn awesome if they do translate it eventually

    1. You can buy cards from sites such as play-asia.
      However, I'm not sure which one's the cheapest among those sites that offer HK/SG/JP PSN Cards

  9. I confirm. Yesterday Andriasang also had these pictures and you could see the pilots fight to the ground. There are also voice and text Chat.

    Do not you think the style of Gundam Senki?

  10. Free!? And wouldn't the pilots just get squashed!? XD

  11. I wonder what the ease of enjoyment will be for us English only speaking folk. I guess it's free so, what the heck, as long as we don't ruin it for the Japanese players.

  12. Cool! looking forward to it.

  13. You can clearly see that the suits are based off the newer designs (look at the zaku, it looks like a MG Zaku 2.0) compared to Bandai's old as shit models. (again, look at gundam senki zaku 2 and compare it to the old zaku MG)

    I hope this game has a campaign mode though.

    1. I think the Zaku and Rx-78-2 looks a bit closer to their Rg counterparts

  14. damn to bad that this more than likely wont get release in the us

  15. Seriously, they need to publish more games like this for gundam. Not to mention they still haven't sent a great game to America this year.(None on tv anyway)
    Just learn to put away stupid international disputs away for the public to enjoy.

    Nuff said

  16. this better a get a fuck american release.i love the looks of it so far and is it just me or does seem to have a COD team deathmatch feel to it?

    1. Not even close… more like warhawk/starhawk(third-person shooter) and it doesnt seem to need a killstreak to use… if any first person shooter its more like battlefield or that box game halo seems more closer to the teamdeath match comparison…Plus the size of maps would have to be bigger than COD's Nuff said

  17. I am just impressed that it is this polished and its free. I am so glad I made a Japanese PSN account for these kinds of things!

    PC had "Gundam Battle Online"
    it just had alpha beta two months ago
    and will have alpha beta 2 in May

    it support 50 player vs 50 player,
    the control,play mode or graphic detail are completely different with this "Battle operation"

    ReplyDelete
  19. really impressive, it would be cool if they add more MS + Maps overtime in patches like SD Gundam Capsule Fighter Online (which is free).

    1. Get a jap psn account. If u don't know how, fucking google it. That fucking simple

      Delete
  23. I got the game too. It's pretty good. It takes a while to get use to the controls, and there's no english menu. It's pretty simple at first, but it will get complicated once you start unlocking new MS's and want to switch to those, and understanding what the attachable items do if you can't read japanese.
