It’s Wednesday and Bandai Namco still hasn’t ported any Gundam VS games to Steam, but Gundam fans should still feel good because Bamco is launching a new subscription-based smartphone app called “Gundam Fanclub.” The app will serve as an official source of Gundam-related videos, news, and other content. The app will cost 600 yen (roughly $5 USD) per month and will be made available on October 1, 2015 for both Android and iOS-based devices. If you don’t like taking risks, the app also has a 7-day trial period.
The content waiting for subscribers will include streams of the entire Mobile Suit Gundam animation catalog, including some of the new shows like Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans, beginning October 04, 2015. The app will also provide social media functions and exclusive membership benefits and discounts to Gundam-related merchandise. The app is currently exclusive to Japan but we never know, right?
