Namco Bandai has released a staggering amount of new screens and art for the upcoming Dynasty Warriors spin-off, Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3. I was a little bit worried about this game, but if everything else in the game is as nice as these visuals, then skeptics like me have nothing to worry about.
The game will boast more than 70 unlockable suits, more than fifty playable characters, as well as a deeper story and better game play. This will be the biggest DWG game ever made. Okay, forget everything I said about being worried, this game looks amazing. Dynasty Warriors Gundam 3 will be available for HD consoles this Summer. Hit the break for the full press release, as well as a heap of screens and art.
