Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 is the latest release in the game series that combines two of Japan’s most iconic franchises.
The game is set in a future where warfare has engulfed the universe – with huge mech robots, or ‘Mobile Suits’ fighting on land and in space. Players can choose from over 50 upgradeable characters, along with over 70 Mobile Suits from Gundam.
Gundam 3 retains the famous hack and slash format, with the player controlling a single heroic character against thousands of enemies. It also adds new features such as an online multiplayer mode.
Players can join up to three others and complete the campaign together and take advantage of new moves.
With all these features, Gundam 3 is set to continue the success of the previous Dynasty Warriors games.
“Many people were surprised to see Dynasty Warriors 7 enter the GfK Chart-Track All Formats Top 10 during the week of release, so you can never discount the fervour of the Warriors fanbase,” Tecmo Koei’s VP of sales and marketing Will Curley tells MCV.
“It’s good to see many years of nurturing starting to come to fruition.”
Tecmo Koei will be booking ads in specialist Future magazines, as well as promoting the game on Facebook, Twitter and the bespoke Gundam 3 website. It will also appear at the MCM Expo.
