Online retailer Play Asia is listing a February 2016 release window for the English version of Bandai Namco Entertainment’s upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS-Force PlayStation Vita game. Bandai Namco Entertainment is making the English version for the Asian market.
The game will ship in Japan on December 23.
In addition to the familiar 2 vs. 2 gameplay seen in previous entries, the new game lets players form their own original unit from six mobile suits. For the first time in the franchise, there will be three MS units and warships with up to seven MSs in a battle. Two players can battle each other via PS Vita’s ad-hoc multi-player function. The new Force System allows players to give instructions to other mobile suits with “one button” and collect force points from defeating enemies and capturing bases. These force points can be used to replenish stats.
Gundam Barbatos (form 4) from the latest Gundam television anime, this fall’s Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, will be available for a limited time as a DLC included with the game. A download code for Gundam Barbatos (form 1) will be included with the anime’s first Blu-ray set on December 24.
First copies of the game will also include an promotional “RX-78-2 Gundam” card for the Mobile Suit Gundam U.C. Card Builder game. Sony will also release special collaboration models of the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV (known as the PlayStation Vita TV in Japan)
