Bandai Namco surprised many by announcing back in April that Gundam Versus would come west. The franchise has been notoriously scarce in North America and Europe due to presumable licensing issue, but that is coming to an end, and now we know when.

Today the publisher announced that the game will release in North America on September 29th, 2017 exclusively for PS4.

Gundam Versus, that is launching in Japan on July 6th, is the fifth generation game of the super popular (at least in the archipelago of the rising sun) Gundam VS series, it includes the classic 2 vs 2 battles between mobile suits, also adding 3 vs 3 matches.

The game comes with a massive lineup of almost a hundred playable mobile suits, including Gundams from basically every anime (and quite a few manga) of the franchise. Extensive customization options will also be available to let players engineer their perfect mecha.

If you want to see more, you can check out a massive trailer showing the whole lineup of mobile suits included in the game, another showing the different gameplay modes, the first English gameplay trailer, and a cinematic trailer.
