BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. (Headquarters: Minato-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Satoshi Oshita) and LINE Corporation (Headquarters: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo: President & CEO: Takeshi Idezawa) will release LINE: GUNDAM WARS , a smartphone game based on Mobile Suit Gundam, in Japan and other regions of Asia via the LINE GAME platform starting this summer. Ahead of release, the game is conducting a pre-registration campaign in Japan, Taiwan, Hong-Kong and Macau,  starting today June 20, whereby the more users who sign up the more pre-registration items they can receive. 


■Casual Gameplay with a Simplified, Inviting Design

LINE: GUNDAM WARS  is a smartphone game based on Mobile Suit Gundam. It was co-developed and created by BANDAI NAMCO  Entertainment and LINE, and it is the first Mobile Suit Gundam game released on the LINE GAME platform. To make the game easier to enjoy casually for users who have never played a Gundam game before, LINE: GUNDAM WARS  employs a simplified, “deformed” design for the mobile suits, and an auto-battle mode that allows players to progress without the need to perform complex operations.


■Raise and Assemble Various Mobile Suits and Characters for “Newtype” Dash Battles 

LINE: GUNDAM WARS  is a “Newtype” Dash Battle Game where players can raise and put together teams of mobile suits and characters appearing in the original series, and easily enjoy offensive and defensive battles with enemy teams comprised of various mobile suit lineups that go beyond the scope of the original story. Players can tackle stages with their friends as they immerse themselves in the world of Mobile Suit Gundam, fully reliving classic scenes from Mobile Suit Gundam with audio provided by voice actors.


■Ace Pilots Obtainable Via a Pre-registration Campaign Starting Today June 20

LINE: GUNDAM WARS  commenced a campaign today, June 20, whereby all who pre-register can receive in-game pilots featuring voice recording playback.
