Whenever a game’s release date changes, it’s almost always bad news. Bandai Namco’s news, however, is anything but bad as it has just launched Gundam Battle: Gunpla Warfare three weeks ahead of its expected release date. The game was supposed to come out on August 21, but it is now available for download for both Android and iOS devices.
Gundam Battle: Gunpla Warfare was initially released in Japan as Gundam Breaker Mobile. It is a 3D action game where players need to collect parts and build their own custom Gundam plastic model. These plastic models are often referred to as Gunpla by fans of the series, hence the game’s new name.
Perhaps the most impressive feature of the game is that it gives players the ability to build their models with parts and upgrades from nearly all of the Gundam anime series. That means there are recognizable parts from over 25 different Gundam anime that players can mix and match according to their vision.
Once the player’s Gunpla is complete, it can be taken to the arena and battle against creations of other players. The Gunpla Battle Tournament is where players can go head to head in order to prove who is the most powerful of them all. Gundam Battle: Gunpla Warfare has an auto-battle feature, but players may opt to manually control their model and create their own combos of melee and ranged attacks.
Despite the early release date, Gundam Battle: Gunpla Warfare managed to hit the 200,000-pre-registration mark. That means those who signed up early all get the Gundam and Wing Gundam as soon as they log into the game. If you want to check out the game, then be sure to head over to Google Play or the App Store.
