Gundam Memories: Memories of Battle Fires Out Trailer, Screens

May 9, 2011 Written by Heath Hindman

As was briefly mentioned in our previous report, Namco Bandai’s upcoming PSP space combat action title Gundam Memories: Memories of Battle (Tatakai no Kioku) will have two different gameplay types: Situation Mode and Mission Mode. Both are on display in these screens and trailer.
First, let’s take a look at the latest trailer. This video shows the player switching from among three suits in battle, each of which is best equipped for a certain type of combat. There’s one that’s best at staying long range and lobbing projectiles, one that’s best for just walking up and smashing stuff, and one “Speed Type” that serves as the token less powerful but way faster machine.

It shows each suit performing special moves called “Special Trigger” attacks, which become available when a gauge on the bottom of the screen is full. I like the last one, in which the projectile-focused Gundam throws everything but the kitchen sink at his opponent.

Next up, we’ve got a whole bunch of screenshots:

Gundam Memories is scheduled to go on sale June 23 in Japan, with no date in sight for other territories. The PSP sadly isn’t doing nearly as well abroad as it is in Asia, so localization is questionable.
