■ New Point #1: Real-Time Customization Battles

In New Gundam Breaker, the parts you steal from enemies can be equipped right then and there. Evolve into a stronger Gunpla while you are fighting! Of course, you can also more deliberately equip customization parts at the end of a battle.

—If you destroy an enemy Gunpla, they will drop their parts. Be sure to pick up the parts you want to collect.
