Senki Gundam: Giant Robot Combat Thrills for Old School Anime Fanboys

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jul 19, 2009 in Animation, Videogames |

Shown above is the latest commercial for the upcoming action videogame Senki Gundam for the Playstation3 and is due out on September 3rd, 2009. The developers behind this game also did the well remembered Dreamcast and Saturn games — so Gundam fanboys are pretty psyched about this. Below is a video from earlier in July which shows some actual gameplay:

I have to admit that as an old Star Blazers fanboy I’m very envious at the way the 30th anniversary of Gundam has been done on every level from the giant statue to even he trade books that are coming out. There’s a Yamato film due out at the end of this year, but even that looks like Yoshinobu Nishizaki cashing in on the name — part of me would love to see Leiji Matsumoto and Nishizaki come together so the original series and movies could be honored in the proper way. Sadly the 30th anniversary of the film Arrivederchi Yamato will go unmarked on July 31st this year.
