Bandai To Announce Gundam Assault Survive?

Gundam Battle Universe

A product listing at Amazon Japan seems to suggest that our next Gundam game will be Gundam Assault Survive, set for release in the country this March. Judging from the title, it’s probably not the latest game in the Gundam Battle series (Gundam Battle Universe screen above), which already have four PSP games so far. The answer will probably in the upcoming issue of Weekly Famitsu this week.

Update: This is more or less confirmed by another online retailer Rakuten who says this is currently under development by the Gundam Battle team. It appears to be a team-based action game with maps that change in real-time. Among the anime to be included are Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny and Mobile Suit Gundam 00, MS count is more than 300 units and the amount of characters included is said to be 100. Customization plays a big part on the game too with features to create your own character.

God Eater: Customized Bullets And… Sexy Costumes

God Eater

“Bullet Edit” is the latest features to be introduced for God Eater, Bandai Namco’s next big PSP title coming this February in Japan. You will probably remember the game’s Deus Ex Machina weapon system and its three different forms. In Gun Form, players can customize their bullets with five different “Modules” from the various setting like Type, Elemental, Distance, Path, etc to come out with something cool like the above screen.
