Gundam Versus Coming West Sometime This Fall
Westerners rejoice: today Bandai Namco announced that PS4 exclusive Gundam Versus is coming west — aka to the Americas and Europe — sometime this fall.
As you may know, Gundam Versus has already been announced in Japan, where it will release on July 6th. Until today, there was no word on any type of possible localization, and quite frankly not substantial reason to expect there to ever be any.
