    Gundam Breaker 3 (PS4/PSVita) getting English release.

    An Asian English (subs) release, that is.

    $47 for the PSVita release, $53 for the PS4 one.

    Gundam Breaker 3 English version coming to Asia in June

    Customize your Gunpla... in English!

    Bandai Namco will release Gundam Breaker 3 for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in English in Asia this June, the publisher announced.

    A Japanese release is due out on March 3. It was recently scored a 34 out of 40 in Weekly Famitsu magazine.

    Here’s a quick overview of the game, via Play-Asia:

    For those new to this specific spin-off, the core mechanics revolve around the creative choice of building your own Gundam based on the many real life parts featured in the game; the previous title, Gundam Breaker 2, included over 100 Gunpla kits to choose form, which massively increased the number of options and customizations available to a total of over 10,000,000,000 different options!

    Customization is a big part of the Gundam Breaker series and the upcoming release will channel that mindset by allowing players more to choose from when it comes to Gunpla colors, as well as the plating coating and dirtiness, and the expression of damage. In addition to missile pods, rail cannons, beam launchers, and other weapons, there is expansion equipment with various abilities that can be equipped. This will allow players to create a Full Armor Mobile Suit of their own!

    The SD (Super Deformed) series of Gundam will now also be available in support roles, who will take instructions from the player during battles. SD Gundams can only be set to “Module,” the effects of which will extend to the full team.

    A new “Bounty Hunter Mode” has been added to the series. In this mode players will be able to battle against Gunpla that have been uploaded by other players, and the victor will walk away with in-game currency.

    So why not just release the game in English, in all English territories, at least digitally? Or are there too many certification/ESRB(PEGI) hoops to jump through in NA/EU?

    Financial reasons I would assume.

    I am guessing there is enough of a roadblock to digital only in certain parts of Asia, where it seems like a retail release makes sense. But why it is in English too is just weird.

    Asian English releases seem to be gaining popularity and then skipping NA/EU pyhsical releases.

    There are a lot of English speakers in some of those Asian areas, Taiwan/Singapore and a few others have a lot of English speakers. It is probably also pretty cheap to do an Engrish translation over there...

    Having never seen any screenshots of this game series before, this one looks like it has decently high production values for these kinds of "anime" games.

    I wonder if this will be one of the "good" Gundam games that pretty much always stay untranslated and in Japan. I've not played any of the Breaker games yet but picked up the LE of the PS3 Unicorn game because people seem to like it and it was crazy cheap on Play-Asia, being the last copy (I love when I get their low stock discount; in this case it made the LE cheaper than the normal version).
