Bandai Namco Entertainment made a surprise announcement announcing a brand new Gundam Breaker game, aptly titled New Gundam Breaker.

During the Gundam Game New Year Festival 2018 livestream from Tokyo, Bandai Namco Entertainment announced a brand new Gundam Breaker game.

The game is simply named New Gundam Breaker, and it’ll release in Japan in 2018 for PS4. We also learn that it’ll be developed in Unreal Engine 4.

The trailer promises real-time customization done over a dedicated frame. This means that you can customize your mobile suit on the go as you find parts on the battlefield, instead of having to wait to go back to your hangar.

The game will be fully revealed with a dedicated livestream on January 28th at 5:00 PM Japan Time.

Incidentally, if you were waiting for news about the recently-announced Gundam Battle Operation 2, Bandai Namco did not deliver, but the Producer did mention that a new trailer will come at the end of January. He also encouraged the fans to wait just a bit longer.

Below you can enjoy the first teaser trailer, alongside a couple of screenshots showcased during the livestream.

If you’re unfamiliar with the Gundam Breaker franchise, you can check out our review of this game’s predecessorGundam Breaker 3, that was released for PS4 and PS vita back in 2016, and that actually got an English localization for the Asian market. Hopefully, this new one will be localized as well, one way or the other.
