Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 announced. Mecha fans rejoice!

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3

NAMCO BANDAI has announced Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 for the PS3 and XBox 360.  Gundam 3 will include characters and Gundams from over 30 years of the Gundam series.  Players will have access to 50 customizable characters and 70 customizable mobile suits from the Gundam universe.  New additions include Mobile Suits from Mobile Suit Gundam 00 and Mobile Suit Gundam UC.  You can also expect to see some new features, as described below from the press release:

DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 3 also features a number of gameplay additions to the series, including 3 brand new featured systems, including the Partner Strike, Emergency Dash and Recovery Gauge Systems, which will bring a new level of full-out tactical action to the series. The Partner Strike System will enable the player to summon partner characters to the battlefield to assist at crucial moments, affecting your character’s current melee engagement or possibly the overall battlefield conditions for your army. The Emergency Dash System will allow players to execute new cancel and evasion moves negating enemy attacks. This system will bring a new level to gameplay since powerful combos can be more easily parried. The new Recovery Gauge System enables players to recover armor during battle allowing players more flexibility in their tactics on the battlefield.

Additionally, DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 3 brings a new strategy facet to gameplay. Battlefields now incorporate multiple facilities with various functions. Capturing these locations will change the battlefield conditions and turn the tide of the battle in your favor.

Players will be also able to use a new Chain Explosion System to engulf their enemies in a maelstrom of fury!  By initiating an explosion via certain attacks, players will be able to cause further carnage with their own chain of explosions.  Skillful players can use this system to finish off entire squads of Mobile Suits in one blow, thus turning the tide of battle in their favor!

Furthermore, players can take their favorite Mobile Suits and band together with others in intense online multiplayer co-op action with up to 4 players!

As a Gundam fan I’m definitely looking forward to this.  There’s no official release date yet, but according to the press release you can expect Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 this summer.
