Bandai Namco Entertainment Southeast Asia began streaming a new video on Monday for the PlayStation 4 version of the Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxiboost ON arcade game. The video reveals that the game will add the Zaku Amazing mobile suit, which originates from the Gundam Build Fighters anime. Bandai Namco Entertainment also revealed that the game will support two-play split screen and LAN (local area network) matches.
Bandai Namco Entertainment Southeast Asia will release the game in Southeast Asia this year.
The PS4 version of Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxi Boost ON will feature 183 Mobile Suits from 36 works. Including non-player characters, the game will have a total of more than 300 Mobile Suits. Just as in the original arcade game, the PS4 version will have an Extreme Burst mode that greatly boosts Mobile Suit performance and allows players to use powerful attacks.
This game series based on the Gundam robot anime franchise began with Mobile Suit Gundam: Federation Vs. Zeon in arcades in 2001, and it has since spawned releases on both home consoles and portable game systems. The ninth major arcade game release in the series was the first Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs., and it debuted in 2010. The game has since received several upgrades in arcades. Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxi Boost ON, the most recent arcade release in the series, launched in 2016.
The Gundam Extreme Vs. Full Boost game debuted in arcades in Japan in 2012. A PlayStation 3 version, which is the most recent console game in the Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. series, shipped in 2014. Bandai Namco Entertainment then released the Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. 2 arcade game in Japan in October 2018.
Gundam Versus shipped in Japan for PS4 in July 2017, while Bandai Namco Entertainment released the game in the West in September 2017.
