KOEI's Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 is coming to Europe on 27th March, it's been announced.
This PS3 and 360 sequel once again squeezes heroes into enormous robot suits that resemble Transformers and smash the nuts and bolts out of each other. These are based on the Japanese Gundam anime, which explains half of the title.
That leaves the the tactical action style of Dynasty Warriors to talk about. As you may know, this revolves around wading through hordes of cannon-fodder enemies before tackling oversized bosses.
There's skills, abilities and mecha parts to collect and customise robots with along the way, as well as stories nicked from the latest Gundam cartoons to unravel. And they are cartoons.
The formula worked well back at the end of 2007, and with loads more playable robot suits, mission modes and a better online versus system, the package looks promising.
