Based on the popular anime series Mobile Suit Gundam, the game Mobile Suit Gundam U.C. ENGAGE is developed by the renowned Japanese publisher Bandai Namco. The game is completely free to play with optional in-game purchases.
The game Mobile Suit Gundam U.C. ENGAGE is based in an era called Universal Century(UC). The game will feature a 6v6 arena-based gameplay. The players can freely choose from every anime production of Universal Century, including TV animations, Movies, and OVAs. The players have to build their squad and battle it out by commanding them. There will be mainly two modes- PvE mode, where the players have to fight against AI opponents to gain EXP and upgrades. Upgrades are incredibly important as the difficulty increases with each win. These upgrades are even more crucial in the PvP mode where players fight against other players to win.
Build Your Collection
Throughout the gameplay, the players will meet familiar faces from different series of Gundam like Z Gundam, Gundam ZZ, Gundam F91, Gundam Thunder Bolt. More and more wins will give more rewards which can be used to build your ultimate mecha squad. Each character has their unique set of moves and skills and the players have to be strategic too instead of just relying on power. You can also buy items from the in-game store which will definitely give you an edge!
The Animation and Cutscenes
This is the category where Bandai Namco came through superbly! The animations are clear, smooth giving the players hard time distinguishing the game from the animated series. The beautiful 3D graphics along with integrated cut scenes from the animated series seem to blend in well which makes the storylines very immersive. The game’s storyline follows the animated series closely. The players can look from the top down to watch the fight or use the third-person mode to watch and control the Gundams better.
The game also provides the players with the option to set the fight on AUTO mode so that the players can let the AI control the squad during the fight.
