Free-to-play Gundam shooter coming to PSN

Wednesday, 14th March 2012 05:02 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Namco Bandai is taking a bold step into the console free-to-play space with a licensed multiplayer shooter.

Called Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation, the downloadable PlayStation 3 title is being developed by license veterans B.B. Studio.

The online shooter supports up to 12 players in six-on-six teams deathmatch. Players have several weapons to choose from, text chat, and a radar to locate foes.

Namco Bandai expects to launch the game in Japan at the end of June. The publisher announced the game in Famitsu this week, via Siliconera, but gave no insight into how it intends to recoup costs.

    sounds pretty badass, for a while there i thought that good gundam games were dying out, sure its fun slaying hundreds of other giant robots (DW:G) but after 1000+ kills i get a little bored, 6v6 gundam combat is where its at.

    ^ Wouldnt that be because the vast majority of Gundam games never actually leave Japan? I dont follow Gundam (or its games), but this looks pretty decent:
