Initially announced in December, Bandai Namco Amusement has released a new trailer and a roll out date for the latest entry in their popular arcade series, Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS 2 OverBoost.
Making their home to Japanese arcades in 2001, debuting with Mobile Suit Gundam: Federation vs. Zeon, the Gundam VS series has evolved into a high-speed 2-on-2 battle action game boasting massive rosters of playable mobile suits from across the vast Gundam franchise. The currently operating Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS 2 CrossBoost, will be upgraded and relaunched Summer 2023 as “OverBoost.”
One of the new playable mobile suits will be the PFF-X7/E3 Earthree Gundam, the main mobile suit piloted by protagonist Hiroto Kuga in the 2019 Gundam Build Divers Re: RISE series. The cover art of the game also teases the debut of the XVX-016 Gundam Aerial, from the currently airing Mobile Suit Gundam the Witch from Mercury.
In addition, a demo play area will be set up for the first time at Japan Amusement Expo 2023, Japan’s largest amusement and entertainment industry exhibition, to be held on February 11 (Saturday) at Makuhari Messe Exhibition Halls 9 and 10 in Chiba, Japan.
