    Game Features

    Official Mode
    • Returning from DWG2, it's the story mode that follows actual storyline from the anime series
    • The following series have Official story:
      UC0079 - Mobile Suit Gundam
      UC0087 - Mobile Suit Z Gundam
      UC0093 - Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack
      UC0096 - Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn
      CE71 - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED
      CE73 - Mobile Suit Gundam SEED Destiny
    • Storytelling is done by a combination of narratives, voiced conversations, pre-rendered CG cutscenes, and anime stills directly taken from the shows
    • After clearing the storylines, an extra stage may appear that will let you unlock the MA appearing from that series

    Ultimate Mode
    • The original crossover story mode of the game
    • The mode consists of a series of separate storylines
    • Each stories mostly have separate settings and main characters
    • Some stories have unique winning or losing conditions, where if you fail you will need to restart storyline from the beginning
    • Storytelling is done by voiceless narratives and conversations, with no cutscenes of any sort

    Graphics and Audio
    • Art style is returning to the more realistic style in DWG1-2 rather than DWG3's cel-shading
    • To supplement the art style, the MS textures are made to be more realistic with paint chipping and such
    • MS thruster output will also get smaller the lower the remaining Thruster Gauge is. Also when remaining Thruster is low there will be an alert beep as reminder
    • The game also has even more units appearing on screen, however framerate is expected to drop occasionally as with most recent Warriors games
    • Custom Soundtrack option is available at least in Asian versions; it is unknown whether it will be also brought to Western versions
    • If the above is true, it will be possible to replace any in-game BGMs with own songs stored in the console
    • It is also possible to adjust volumes for each individual custom BGMs

    • The health bar has been moved back to the lower left corner
    • For the first time in DWG series, the health bar now features the pilot's portrait
    • Thruster Gauge is now located above the health bar
    • Shotdown Count is now placed next to the health bar; the lower right corner now features a box that describes current missions
    • It is now possible to lock-on to enemy ace MS as well rather than only MAs
    • The new yellow bar left of the pilot's portrait is Burst Gauge, which will be explained below

    Burst Mode
    • This mode is very similar to Rage Mode in Dynasty Warriors 8
    • Burst Mode is activated by pressing R2 when the Burst Gauge is full. To fill this gauge, destroy enemies using SP attack, or beat enemy ace pilots
    • When Burst Mode is on, the pilot's portrait will change into a pumped up version
    • Weapons will be at maximum upgrade level during Burst Mode regardless of current actual upgrades
    • Each pilots and units have their own specific Burst Mode effects based on their original settings
    • Units that activate their specific hyper modes or forms will do it in Burst Mode (eg. Unicorn's Destroy Mode, 00 Gundams' Trans-Am, Strike Freedom's METEOR)
    • Examples of Burst Mode effects by pilots:
      Battle Newtype - Causes nearby enemies to be in slow motion - Amuro Ray, Char Aznable, Judau Ashta
      Sympathy Newtype - Instantly recovers some in Burst Gauge after it's depleted - Kamille Bidan, Banagher Links, Uso Ewin
      SEED - Thruster Gauge never depletes - Kira Yamato, Athrun Zala, Shinn Asuka
      Moonrace - Extends Burst Mode duration - Loran Cehack, Gym Ghingnham
      Ace Pilot - Triggers more effective chain explosions - Kou Uraki, Anavel Gato, Garrod Ran, Mu La Flaga
    • Examples of Burst Mode effects by units:
      Bio Sensor - Recovers health for any melee damages dealt - Z Gundam, ZZ Gundam, Re-GZ
      Psycommu System - Recovers health for any projectile damages dealt - The O, Qubeley, Zeong, Bound Doc
      Hyper Mode - Chance of criticals from melee attacks - Burning/God Gundam, Master Gundam
      Phase Shift Armor - Increases defense and won't get flinched - Aegis Gundam, Duel Gundam, Buster Gundam, Blitz Gundam

    Combination Burst
    • DWG3's Partner Strike has been improved into Combination Burst
    • To execute Combination Burst, unleash an SP attack during Burst Mode (explained above)
    • If successful, the Combination Unit will show up after player unit has done its SP attack to unleash its own SP attack
    • Ally ace Mobile Suits, Mobile Armors, and even Warships are now also selectable as Combination Burst partners
    • The Combination Unit's attack direction can be altered for the duration of SP attack; this includes being able to control warships for a brief time as well
    • Warships that appear in the game and selectable in Combination Burst are as following:
      White Base [Captain: Bright Noa]
      Gaw [Captain: Garma Zabi]
      Musai [Captain: Gihren Zabi, Kycillia Zabi]
      Argama [Captain: Bright Noa]
      Radish [Captain: Henken Beckener]
      Ra Cailum [Captain: Bright Noa]
      Rewloola [Captain: Nanai Miguel]
      Garencieres [Captain: Suberoa Zinnerman]
      Archangel [Captain: Murrue Ramius]
      Dominion [Captain: Natarle Badgiruel]
      Minerva [Captain: Talia Gladys]

    Charge Shot
    • The Shot (T) button can be held and the MS will charge up. When the button is released it will launch a powerful shot attack
    • Any parts in the combo (S-string, Charge attacks, Dash attacks) can be canceled into a Charge Shot as long as the Shot button is held beforehand
    • Charge Shot can split destroyed enemy parts to create better chain explosions

    Charged SP Attack
    • Combination SP attack in past games has been changed to Charged SP
    • As with past games, this second ground SP is only available to Class 1 (full moveset) Mobile Suits
    • Other prerequisites include having the MS with at least 2 SP bars, and the pilot reaching a certain amount of level
    • Once all requirements are fulfilled, holding the SP (O) button will allow the SP bar to be charged up to unleash the other SP attack

    Upgrade Plans
    • Blueprint plans needed to be equipped to the MS to increase both their stats and weapon strengths
    • Upgrade plans are obtained by using the MS, destroy lots of enemy grunts of the same type, and defeating enemy aces
    • Plans can be mixed with each other to combine the stat distributions
    • Weapons are upgradeable using money and materials, the latter of which are obtainable by scoring lots of shotdowns in battles
    • Weapon upgrades are noticeable not only from damage output but also visually, especially on beam-based weapons which will become larger

    Battle System
    • The war system is closer to DWG1-2 so there is no more player respawning in exchange for better unit defense
    • Base system in DWG3 is returning with some degree; some bases have special effects:
      Production Field (MS icon) - Will continue to produce Raid Captain grunts for the army owning it which can capture fields and hold aces on their own
      Repair Field (Wrench icon) - Will gradually recover health of all units of the army owning it
    • Mobile Armor battles are easier to understand with individual part HPs being shown; Depleting these HPs will destroy the corresponding parts, giving handicaps to the MA
    • There is an extra upgrade plan reward if all parts of a MA can be destroyed before defeating them
    • Warships play much more important roles than ever: They will appear in close elevations so that players can damage the warship by destroying nearby enemy grunts or even directly attack the warships themselves
    • Warships can also give long-range support barrages and even frequent barrage attacks at close proximity

    Other Gameplay Features
    • The gigantic Mobile Armors are now playable. When using them, the camera will scale appropriately so that other MS will look very puny in comparison
    • Map layouts are more akin to DWG1-2's larger maps than DWG3's boxed maps
    • Space maps are returning. Although they are still not 3-axes, some enemy grunts will hover at different elevations which make the stage look more dimensional
    • There are also oversea and aerial maps
    • Multiplayer is available in both 2-player online and splitscreen offline co-op for both Official & Ultimate modes
    • In order to join an online co-op session, the client must have previously cleared the corresponding storyline
    • When game progression is far enough, it will be possible to change the difficulty star rating in any cleared stages

    The Beargguy, unlike the other DLC units, was a first-print incentive in the Asian versions, so not everyone are possible to get it. As such there aren't any stages that'll force you to use it at all.

    This is something I really hope stays when it comes here. Kinda want real Gundam OST music in the game instead of what we usually get, even if there's nothing wrong with that music.

    Aw, that's sad. It should have just been in the game instead from the beginning. Hopefully it'll be available here too as DLC or pre-order bonus or something, so I can pretend that at least on Build Fighter unit got in the game.

    But anyways, I can only say that I'm really looking forward to this game now. Gundam Build Fighters really got me to want to play some gundam game again, but well I've pretty much done everything in DWG3 so it's not really the most exciting game anymore.
    Though I am disappointed that they didn't include any Build Fighters gundams like Star Build Strike or Wing Gundam Fenice. Or even AGE Gundams, even if that series wasn't very good. All these SEED stuff just feels old and boring now, with the more recent series feeling more relevant. But well, at least it's not more UC crap.

    Build Fighters just ended some moments ago, so I think it'd be a bit too early to have good chances of it getting featured in prominent Gundam crossover games like this if we look at other examples like SRW. ^^;
    Give it a year or two, and the chance should increase gradually.

    Anyway the US teaser trailer is up, the release timeframe is now around July 2014.

    I suppose i ought to pick up the physical version then.

    Oh yeah, a question if i may?

    Mobile Suit Gundam SEED is newly featured in DWG series starting this game
    What did you mean by that exactly, wasnt Seed in the other 2 DWG gundam games or am i misinterpreting that somehow?

    The SEED series that was featured in GW2-3 was Gundam SEED Destiny, which is the sequel to the first Gundam SEED. Hence why Kira & Athrun were instantly in their grown-up personages and they straight used Strike Freedom & Infinite Justice.
    Starting this game, we have the first Gundam SEED featured, and that also means we get the younger Kira & Athrun, as well as Strike, Freedom, Aegis and Justice Gundams among others.

    And this first Gundam SEED is also the only new featured series in-game unless you count the DLC-added series (Endless Waltz, 00 Movie, Crossbone)

    This game is going to be so awesome! I only wished Koei would've tossed us a bone via releasing a demo on the PSN store.
