Gundam Versus PS4 Gameplay Footage Has Fast Mech Action
Our first-ever look at Gundam Versus gameplay is finally here! Courtesy of Bandai Namco’s “Gundam Festival” livestream, we get to see two matches being played out, and as one can expect, mechs battling other mechs equates to a ton of action.
Clocking in at just five-minutes, gamers will see the “Awakening System” in action. You can read up on more game mechanic details below (couresty of SiliconEra)
Boost Drive: The first new action for Gundam Versus on PS4. While flying, this action will allow you to drop down at high speed. This move cancels out all actions while performing. The purpose of this action is to change the timing of your landing, allowing you to lessen the weapon delay.
Striker Select: You can make any Mobile Suit into an ally (Striker) and call them out for an attack. During the alpha test, players got to choose two out of three Mobile Suit units as their Strikers. Strikers can be summoned by consuming your Striker Gauge, which fills up over time. The screenshots show GM, Ball, Thunderbolt GM as Strikers.
Awakening System: Awakening allows you to choose from two types out of “Blaze Gear” and “Lightning Gear.” Blaze Gear is an Awakening that activates instantly. Once active, it does effects such as improved follow-up melees and more. Lightning Gear is a continuous-type, which provides bonuses such as lock-on range increase, and more.
Gundam Versus is in development for the PS4 with an unspecific release date. It has been confirmed that it will see release in Southeast Asia with Japanese voice-overs with English subtitles for those interested in importing.
