NAMCO BANDAI GAMES AND KOEI AGAIN JOIN FORCES TO DELIVER AN EPIC DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2
DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 to Deliver More Massive Mobile Suits, Melee Combat Mayhem and Online Versus Play
NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. and KOEI Corporation announced today a co-publishing agreement that will bring DYNASTY WARRIORS®: GUNDAM®2 to North America in 2009 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system.
"DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM was a sure-fire hit for the PLAYSTATION 3 system and we are ecstatic to continue our relationship with KOEI on this amazing franchise,” said Todd Thorson, director of marketing and public relations at NAMCO BANDAI Games America. "DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 promises to deliver an outstanding sequel with even larger Mobile Suits, more epic battles and compelling storyline.”
"Last year NAMCO BANDAI Games and KOEI combined forces to create DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM. The result became one of the fastest-selling PLAYSTATION 3 system games in Japan, and to date the game has sold over 800,000 units across multiple platforms worldwide,” said Amos Ip, Senior Vice President for KOEI Corporation. "Our companies have come together once again, and we are excited about reuniting two very powerful cultural icons for another monumental gaming experience.”
In the future, rebel space colonies launch a brutal war of independence with a series of coordinated orbital strikes against Earth. The chaotic assault signals the dawn of a new age of combat and the ultimate instrument of warfare is born, the Mobile Suit.
DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 combines the devastating power of the Mobile Suit, the rich legacy of the GUNDAM universe and the furious Tactical Action game play of the DYNASTY WARRIORS series. The game will thrust players into incredible battles against legions of enemy Mobile Suits on distant planetary surfaces and in the far reaches of outer space. For the first time, DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 will let players engage in melee battles against colossal enemies such as the Psycho Gundam. The massive Psycho Gundam can quickly reconfigure their bodies into titanic mobile fortresses which can move with remarkable speed. However, highly-trained pilots can utilize their own Mobile Suit’s speed, agility, and of course firepower to defeat these deadly juggernauts.
DYNASTY WARRIORS: GUNDAM 2 will also include new stories featuring mecha from the latest Gundam anime, plus mecha from Char’s Counter Attack and more. With mecha parts collected throughout the course of the game, players will be able to adapt a Mobile Suit which can be piloted into combat.
