This ones for all you fans of the Gundam Series. Bandai is preparing to go next-gen with Gundam World for the PS3. The date is still To Be Announced.
Heres the 411 from www.gamespot.com :
What kind of next-gen demo reel would it be without giant robots? Not much of one, in our opinion. In this regard, Sony's PlayStation 3 game reel didn't disappoint, as Bandai's Gundam World was debuted to the world during the conference. So, what did the video show? Why, gigantic robots laying waste to one another and a major city, of course!
The video opens of a shot within a burned-out building. Through the glassless, damaged windows, you can see a trio of massive Zakus wandering through the streets of a devastated city, seemingly on the hunt for something. Suddenly, a GM mobile suit appears, with what appears to be a semiautomatic rifle, and pumps the other robots full of lead. Cut to a Gun Tank travelling through the streets. This one starts blasting away at the Zakus, one of whose arm is promptly severed, sending him falling to the ground with a tremendous thud. The video then cuts to a Gouf Custom and this one has a massive Gatling gun. He fires off a few shots at another opposing robot. Finally, the video cuts back to the burned-out building, and again we're looking out at the action on the streets. You see a Gundam go from the kneeling position to standing up, and then we quickly zoom in and freeze-frame on Gundam RX 78-2, complete with a big, honking bazooka in its right hand.
So, is any of this in-game footage? Is it all just one big, pretty CG cutscene? We're afraid that we just don't know. One way or another, it's a hell of an entertaining sequence, and we're incredibly curious to see more. We'll bring you more on Gundam World as it becomes available. Thanks go out to Lancer_McCloud for the correct names for all the Gundams.
