Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2

My dear readers, I am so truly overjoyed that tears are flowing from my eyes like water over New Orleans' dikes, but the tears are destructive and by overjoyed I mean completely confused and distraught. You see, Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is on the way for the Playstation 3, Playstation 2, and Xbox 360.

Rather than go on and on about how much I disagree with another installment of this series, I'll just jump to the facts.

Major changes in this one would be mainly the online versus play and this: "With mecha parts collected throughout the course of the game, players will be able to adapt a Mobile Suit which can be piloted into combat."

Being co-published by Koei and Namco Bandai we can expect to see it sometime in 2009. You can read all about it after the break in the press release.

Santa Clara, CA - September 2, 2008 - NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. and KOEI Corporation announced today a co-publishing agreement that will bring DYNASTY WARRIORS®: GUNDAM®2 to North America in 2009 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.

“DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM was a sure-fire hit for the PLAYSTATION 3 system and we are ecstatic to continue our relationship with KOEI on this amazing franchise,” said Todd Thorson, director of marketing and public relations at NAMCO BANDAI Games America. “DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 promises to deliver an outstanding sequel with even larger Mobile Suits, more epic battles and compelling storyline.”

“Last year NAMCO BANDAI Games and KOEI combined forces to create DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM. The result became one of the fastest-selling PLAYSTATION 3 system games in Japan, and to date the game has sold over 800,000 units across multiple platforms worldwide,” said Amos Ip, Senior Vice President for KOEI Corporation. “Our companies have come together once again, and we are excited about reuniting two very powerful cultural icons for another monumental gaming experience.”

In the future, rebel space colonies launch a brutal war of independence with a series of coordinated orbital strikes against Earth. The chaotic assault signals the dawn of a new age of combat and the ultimate instrument of warfare is born, the Mobile Suit.

DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 combines the devastating power of the Mobile Suit, the rich legacy of the GUNDAM universe and the furious Tactical Action game play of the DYNASTY WARRIORS series. The game will thrust players into incredible battles against legions of enemy Mobile Suits on distant planetary surfaces and in the far reaches of outer space. For the first time, DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 will let players engage in melee battles against colossal enemies such as the Psycho Gundam. The massive Psycho Gundam can quickly reconfigure their bodies into titanic mobile fortresses which can move with remarkable speed. However, highly-trained pilots can utilize their own Mobile Suit’s speed, agility, and of course firepower to defeat these deadly juggernauts.

DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 will also include new stories featuring mecha from the latest Gundam anime, plus mecha from Char’s Counter Attack and more. With mecha parts collected throughout the course of the game, players will be able to adapt a Mobile Suit which can be piloted into combat.

Developed by KOEI’s award-winning Omega Force team, DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 will also include online versus play. For more information please visit www.namcobandaigames.com or www.koei.com.
