I want to learn Japanese, so that I may subscribe to the hip-as-hell gaming magazine Famitsu and find out first-hand about all the awesome gaming goodness that comes to the Land of the Rising Sun instead of relying on translations!
This week's tasty Famitsu morsel: A new PS3 Gundam game! Mobile Suit Gundam: Battlefield Record U.C.0081 supports up to eight mech-loving players online via that PS Network. It may be the "spiritual successor" to PlayStation 2 title Mobile Suit Gundam: Lost War Chronicles.
This isn't the first Gundam game on the PS3. You may remember PS3 launch title Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire...(pictured above) or if you actually played it, you may wish to forget it. Hopefully, should Mobile Suit Gundam: Battlefield Record U.C.0081 come to the states, it will feature better controls, more interesting levels, and altogether, more awesomeness than the critically panned Crossfire.
Battlefield Record U.C.0081 doesn't have a release date. It's reportedly 60 percent finished.
