Fighter Mode

Quickly approach enemy forces with exceptional speed. Fighter Mode is good for striking the first blow.

Battroid Mode

This mode’s job is close combat. Battroid Mode is good for missile-based counterattacks and melee combat.

Gerwalk Mode

Eliminate enemy forces and facilities while still in the air. Gerwalk Mode exhibits its maximum firepower when shooting from a fixed location.

■ Songs and Action Unite
