Shin Gundam Musou
Literally Millions of Mobile Suits
Though on the PS3, it should be mentioned for Gundam fans that Shin Gundam Musou, the sequel to Gundam Musou, is the first ever Gundam title released for the Vita. And like all the Musou games, players can expect the exciting and addicting style of gameplay wherein it's one versus a million!
And speaking of a million, featured in Shin Gundam Musou are many of the anime series staples; making strong appearances in this game are characters from SEED, SEED DESTINY and Unicorn as these are the new arcs meant for dramatization in Official Mode. Previous returning arcs such as Z and OO will have more characters and cutscenes as compared to previous titles. As well, footage from the original anime will be spliced throughout the game!
For gameplay changes, the addition of the "Burst System" makes for great replay value; depending on which pilot is selected for a Mobile Suit, different stats and abilities will reveal themselves. As well, what was once known as a Partner Strikes have been renamed "Combination Burst," and this can be done in tandem with summoned support from warships. Furthermore, space combat makes a comeback, and ace pilots can move their bases around for added strategic value.
With a plethora of features - new and old as well as the appeal of realistic looking Mobile Suits, Shin Gundam Musou is looking to be a solid entry in the Musou genre.
