I profess that I am no fan of Gundam, having never ever watched any episode of it.   :wink:  However, the Gundam RPG, to be released tomorrow, looks to be a high quality production and very promising.

The official site is here and is full of info and screenshot.  I would highly recommend anyone who has even a slightest interest in RPG to check it out.

The game appears to be a classic Japanese RPG fought with 3D mech models.   There are tons of way to customize your mech.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who did a double take on this one.  I try and keep track of most of the Mecha games out there...they're too much fun.  I'm trying to dig up any info in english on this one.

Wow...this would so rule.  I am sure it is for PS2, though, and I don't have one, which is dumb of me since I love RPGs.  I just kind of got fed up with the load times on the PS2 and dumped it many years ago.  If this isn't coming out in the U.S., someone should steal the idea and do something similar.

Well..they have the game's intro listed at the site, and it looks okay, thought the mecha are designed almost like SD Gundam War..Some notes from Majoria's News:

Character Art
Moviesl


And as a complete bonus, some of the promotions that those wacky japanese do:

Since we are on the subject of "wacky Japanese", how about some incredible figurines of flight attendant by All Nippon Airways?

What are the chances of seeing carriers in the States doing these as promotion?  :wink:

If I was ever on a flight with the girl in pinstripes and pink hair I'd have to add a new fetish to my repertoire.

Those wacky Japanese, seems they will buy anything but an Xbox...
