Bandai's new PS2 3D mech fighting game is based on the first season of Gundam OO (Episodes 1-25) and follows the storyline from the animated series. Players may choose one of the four Gundam Meisters (Setsuna Seiei, Lockon Stratos, Allelujah Haptism, and Tieria Erde) and play the game from his point of view. When two mechs clash and trigger certain conditions, a special animation will play in-between the action to add additional drama to the battle. The game also includes a new animated cinema that was produced by the creative staff of the animation.
Early preorders will ship with a bonus Gundam OO animation DVD in 50% ratio. Due to the uneven allocation, new orders will not include the bonus.
Sony's sequel to Yuusha no Kuse places NCS in another thankless job where we try to protect a devil from brave and daring heroes. NCS will grow monsters and cultivate them but in our heart of hearts, we know that it won't be enough. The heroes will lasso and bag the devil sooner or later. At the outset of the game, four tutorials may be viewed which outline the basics of the game and the genesis of monsters. The basic monster building block is a green slime but it may be used to "salt" stones so that more evolved monsters are generated. For example, the next step up from a slime is an insect followed by a sword-wielding blue lizard. From there, more exotic creatures may be created including green dragons, purple insects, red demons, and many more. By engendering a diverse mix of creatures, players attempt to stop the kidnapping of a little devil.
Sony will give away a bonus Devil Mascot trinket to early preorders in 30% ratio. This means that if we order 300 copies of the game, we'll only receive 90 bonuses which will be given away to the first 90 preorders.
To celebrate the ungainly movie monsters of yore, Bandai assembles over 60 monsters and pits them against each other in a 3D fighting game where gargantuan beasts slap, kick, and use fierce powers against each other. The Story Mode allows players to choose a monster and fight a procession of fellow monsters in one-on-one action against the backdrop of a dramatic storyline. Over 50 different stories may be enjoyed in all their campy glory. There's also a Custom Team Mode where groups of monsters engage in a battle royale and a Battle Mode which allows two players to face off against monsters that are controlled by the COM. A Gallery Mode on the disc features over 250 photos and 3D monster models for fans to peruse, inspect, and appreciate.
Instruments that may be played include a guitar, piano, violin, drums, a sitar, the vibrophone, a tambourine, trumpet, and many more. We're hoping that the cowbell is also featured because you can never have enough cowbell. Over 50 music selections are included in the game including the Super Mario theme song, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," "From the New World," "Yankee Doodle Dandy," the Overture to Carmen, and the theme song from the F-Zero Mute City stage. Up to four players may jam together at once but in a six man band, the computer handles two of the band mates. Software features include a virtual drum kit which utilizes the Wii Balance Board and the Nunchuk and another mode which allows the player to conduct an orchestra.
