■ New Element: Collecting and Strengthening “Inner Frame” Abilities
In order to win through battles at Gunbre High School, not only will you need to collect Gunpla parts, it is also important to grow your Inner Frame, which is the base of your Gunpla. In this game, you can grow your Inner Frame and acquire abilities through repeated battle. The abilities you acquire differ depending on the Inner Frame, but since all abilities have a strengthening element, the first step towards creating the strongest build fighter is the collecting and strengthening of abilities.
—Depending on the type of Inner Frame, the abilities you can collect differ. Collect and strengthen numerous abilities, and grow the Inner Frame that is your Gunpla’s base.

■ Master “Awakenings”
Another one of the keys to winning Gunpla battles is filling up the “Burst Meter” on the lower-right corner of the screen in order to use an “Awakening.: An Awakening comes with various effects, so it is important to know when to use it.
- Temporarily increases various stats (movement speed, boost speed, reaction speed)
- No damage reaction and durability automatically recovers
- Lowers parts-out and parts drop rates
- The “Frame EX Skill,” which is the special move possesses by each Inner Frame, becomes available for use
- (In situations where you changed parts from your initial Gunpla during an Awakening) You can return to the Gunpla you had at the start of the battle
—By Awakening in a state where you have lost parts, you will return to your original form from the start of the battle. By Awakening in a state where you have equipped new parts obtained during the battle, those new parts will drop to your feet.
—Use the “Frame EX Skill” tied to your Inner Frame to turn the tides of battle.
