A True Japanese Pop Culture Icon Returns for Fans in the West

BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe today announced that it will be releasing MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS-FORCE exclusively for the PlayStation®Vita handheld system in 2016. Pilot legendary Mobile Suits and take on missions from various scenarios from Mobile Suit Gundam to Mobile Suit Gundam Universal Century in fast-paced 2vs2 gameplay to larger and more strategic Team battles.

The high intensity 2vs2 gameplay of MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS-FORCE is based on the hit Japanese GUNDAM VS franchise which has produced more than 10 titles in the past 14 years across multiple console systems and arcades in Japan.

Take control of the battlefield in either single player or local multiplayer skirmishes in both 3rd person action or overhead tactical views and command Teams of six Mobile Suits and one battleship. Team battles gives ace pilots tactical control over the placement and actions of their troops as they compete to eliminate the opposing forces.
