First Screenshots for Gundam Side Story: Missing Link

Most gamers these days are only familiar with the 3rd person free-for-alls from Namco Bandai, but back in the days of the Sega Saturn and the Dreamcast, there was also Gundam Side Story 0079, which is a little bit more realistic in its portrayal of a Gundam as it puts gamers in the perspective of someone in the cockpit of a mobile suit. This means less boosting around and sobering mobile suits like a badass mofo and more driving around and turret-like controls. It’s basically more Mech Warriors than Gundam vs. Gundam Next Plus.

If that kind of Gundam-piloting gameplay is more your speed, the Playstation 3 will be getting a new installment of the Side Story franchise, titled Mobile Suit Gundam Side Story: Missing Link. The game will let players take control of the series’ notable Gundams (including the RX-series) but will also offer the ability to personalize and customize the suits.

Namco Bandai has just released a new trailer for their upcoming fighting game based on the hit shonen manga Naruto Shippuden. This time around, the trailer takes on an “All Star Trailer” format that provides a deeper look at the story mode, as well as a peek at the massive roster of characters available in the game.

Nintendo DS Gets a ThunderCats Game

Nintendo DS Gets a ThunderCats Game

There will be a new game based on Cartoon Network’s modern update of the Thundercats, as developer Aspect Digital (of Naruto: Ninja Council) and Namco Bandai are currently working (or has finished working) on a new Thundercats game for the Nintendo DS.

Note that the game is for the Nintendo DS, instead of Nintendo’s newer 3DS. On the one hand, it means that the graphics will probably not meet current gen standards, as the DS is nowhere near as capable as the 3DS or even the PSP, but on the other hand, it is still good news because it means the title will be available to a broader range of audience, due to the fact that a lot of gamers have held on to their DS while the 3DS users will still be able to play the game due to the handheld’s backwards compatibility.

New Trailer for Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi

Dragonball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi

SUH-WEET! Namco Bandai has released a new trailer for their latest Dragonball game, Ultimate Tenkaichi. The usual heavyweight villains are shown, as you can expect from any Dragonball game trailer (especially ones that are from the Tenkaichi series, since their selling point is the sheer number of characters they have.): Cell, Frieza, Buu are all featured, but surprising is the appearance of villains that only appeared once in movies, such as Metal/Cyber Cooler, Janemba, and the towering Hirudegarn.

Mobile Suit Gundam AGE takes the fight online and to PSP
