Gundam Unicorn Heads To Playstation 3

Shooter Sony Playstation 3 News Bandai Namco Action

On the back of Gundam Ace, a Level-5 creation with help with Sunrise to develop the anime, another Gundam series is now heading to the Playstation 3. Gundam Unicorn will be based on the first three episodes of the anime (there are only four actually developed) and slated for a spring 2012 release. The game will be published by Namco Bandai and developed by From Software, the team behind Demon Souls and Dark Souls, so the game is actually in good hands.

In Famitsu, an interview was conducted, revealing a few bits of information for this game. The game will focus on speed and the Mobile Suits will be realistic, with a feel of weight added to the Suits. Transformations will be re-created and not hidden from the player. There will also be quite a bit of voice acting and most of the cutscenes will be CGI, with a few maybe in anime form. Characters and mechas from Banagher, Marida and Frontal will be featured.

From Software also revealed that they were approached by Namco Bandai to create the game. They have experience with Gundam games, being the developers behind Another Century’s Episode series. There will be an updated control system taken from Another Century’s Episode that will be used in the series. There will also be a “Sub Flight” system, where the pilot can climb atop of the Suit before changing into Flight Mode. The game is 70% complete.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
