Thought by many to have been canceled, the newest Gundam game has just been given its Japanese release date. As a game that borrows a great deal from games such as Battlefield, it's a bit strange to see that Mobile Suit Gundam: Operation Troy isn't seeing a worldwide simultaneous release date. Announced via a press release on the Japanese version of xbox.com, Operation Troy will be seeing release June 26 in Japan.
As noted, the game is inspired by Battlefield, but replacing the copters and tanks are, as you likely guessed, Mobile Suits (nerd fact: not all Mobile Suits are Gundams). Despite the game's abysmal graphics, an open-world FPS with properly-scaled Mobile Suits has a lot of potential. And even though the Gundam games don't exactly have a history of exceptional quality, we'd like to give the devs a chance to get it wrong before we rip into it. So, here's hoping for an eventual localization.
