Gundam Battle – Western launch confirmed for 2018 after China debut

Gundam Battle, an officially licensed action PVP mobile game co-developed by Bandai Namco Shanghai and Chinese games developer/ publisher KingNet, recently completed Closed Beta testing in China. It was also announced that after launching in China later this year, Gundam Battle will be heading to Western markets in 2018 on an unannounced date.

Gundam Battle includes 21 Mobile Suits (MS) with matching pilot audio packs. The MS lineup includes popular suits from New Mobile Report Gundam Wing and Mobile Suit Gundam SEED, but also includes MS from the extended universe. These include Z Gundam from Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam and Gundam Ez8 from Gundam: The 08th MS Team.

Added in the Closed Beta version is the Team Battle mode, in addition to Story mode and Arena mode. Team Battle mode supports up to three players as they team up to challenge big bosses like BYG-Zam or Psyco Gundam. Different from Story mode, the bosses in Team Battle mode are much more powerful and can only be challenged once a day.
