ABOUT LINE: GUNDAM WARS
Tactically Assemble Mobile Suits in Battles
In this game, Mobile Suits with six different characteristics —Attack, Defend, Support, Block, Recover, Versatile— are assembled to fight in battles together. They switch between vanguard and rearguard according to the course of battle, and players wait for the right timing to make them produce flaring special attacks. While the wide array of animation patterns recreate the world of the animated series, the cute and colorful design of Mobile Suits makes them approachable to all users.
Equip Mobile Suits with a Pilot
By sending Mobile Suits equipped with a Pilot of various skills to battle, the Pilots help to fight the battle, enhance their Mecha’s performance, and exert their skill in other ways. Furthermore, if players have their sound turned on, they can listen to famous dialogues from the animated series while watching a display of special effects when a Pilot-equipped Mobile Suit produces a special attack.
Note: Certain characters do not have voice recording playback.
Obtain New Mobile Suits By Collecting Blueprints
By collecting blueprints that come with every Mobile Suit, players can obtain new Mobile Suits once the required number is reached. Players can also collect blueprints of Mobile Suits that they already own to upgrade them, increasing their status and making them even more powerful during battles. Blueprints can be obtained by clearing missions as well as from Draws.
