Namco Bandai’s Gundam Royale Might Force Us to Socialize

Gundam Royale

When I first heard the title Gundam Royale, I immediately thought of Daniel Craig doing an impression of Char Aznable. Needless to say, that’ll never happen. Instead the game is being toted as the first “social” game for the series. So what does that mean exactly? Well, that’s a really good question. First of all, the game will be released for mobile phones. As you can probably imagine, that likely means it’ll be an iPhone App here in the US. Only a few details about the actual gameplay have been revealed, so just how social is it? 

From what we’ve been told so far, the game will have you play through missions in order to obtain mobile suits. Here’s where the socializing comes into play. Instead of powering through the game to collect each suit one at a time, you’ll be able to trade with other players you meet, or train with them, though the benefits of doing so have yet to be revealed. So far, it doesn’t sound so bad. There’s been no word on when they plan on releasing the game, or some screenshots for that matter, so we’ll just have to wait and see where this goes.
