Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Versus 2 Cross Boost, the latest iteration of Bandai Namco‘s popular 2-on-2 team battle action, arcade game series, will be updated on Friday, July 1, to add the RX-93ff Nu Gundam, a part of a new collaboration with Gundam Park Fukuoka.
For the cost of 3000 points, piloted by Amuro Ray, the Nu Gundam is an all-purpose unit that attacks enemy mobile suits by making full use of its “long-range fin funnel,” which can be operated as a beam cannon, beam saber, or a psycommu weapon.
Gundam Park Fukuoka was announced September 2021 as a new Gundam-themed entertainment complex developed and managed by Bandai Namco Amusement Inc. and Bandai Spirits, based around the RX-93ff Nu Gundam statue at Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport FUKUOKA. The facility officially opened April 25, 2022.
Based on Amuro Ray’s RX-93 Nu Gundam from the 1988 Mobile Suit Gundam: Char’s Counterattack film, originally designed by Yutaka Izubuchi, the RX-93ff version sports a new long-range Fin Funnel and tricolor markings designed under the supervision of Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino.
Located on the fourth floor of Mitsui Shopping Park LaLaport FUKUOKA in Hakata-ku, Fukuoka City, Gundam Park Fukuoka is stated to be the birth of a new Gundam entertainment complex where information, merchandise, sports entertainment, and amusement of the Gundam series are gathered in one place.
The facility consists of three areas: Gundam Side-F— is an area that provides various Gundam information and goods, VS PARK with G— a sports facility where guests experience fun Japanese game show-esque activities, and namco— an area where guests can enjoy arcade and crane games.
