Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories

Namco Bandai has shared new details and screenshots on Mobile Suit Gundam Side Stories, its upcoming PlayStation 3 release including the new Missing Link chapter and remakes of five Gundam Side Story games.

In addition to the original story mode, there will be a variety of other missions. Players can aim to create the strongest team in “VR Mission Mode,” which will play identical to the story with a platoon of three mecha. You’ll be able to take control of your favorite Mobile Suits, freely mix up their troops, and take on various missions.

Points earned from missions can get you new Mobile Suits. Or, you can use points to strengthen your mecha to make your dream team. Missions can be retried, as well.
