One of the many games showcased during Sony's pre-TGS press conference was a new Mobile Suit Gundam game from Bandai Namco. While there's currently no release date, Gundam Versus is an action game featuring team battles, and you can peep the debut teaser for some footage and a reminder that a ton of Gundam games exist.
In Japanese "nezumi" mean rat or mouse. Which means, when the protagonists of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans are derided as "space rats," it allows them to be recast as cute "Orphan-chu" picture-book mice. Gjallarhorn correspondingly become cats. After teasing figures of these at least as far back as spring's HegaHobby Expo, launching a showcase Twitter and site, with season 2 of the anime coming this fall, a set has gone on sale.
Bandai Namco is bringing SD Gundam G Generation Genesis to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in Japan on November 22, with an English-subbed Asian release to follow this year.

Check out the Sazabi-centric video, which also features some cockpit action from the RGZ-91 Re-GZ and RGM-89 Jegan.
The Sunrise/Bandai merchandise chain works quickly. Following the debut of the Gundam Build Fighters Try Island Wars special, Bandai's Hobby Net revealed that they are about to start selling a real model kit based on Fumina Hoshino homage gunpla Super Fumino in the new version, color for Zeta Gundam's fascist Earth Federation elite force known as the Titans.
