Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2 has officially been launched in the US for the PlayStation 4. Prepare to put on your favorite Mobile Suits and lay waste to your enemies. This free-to-play game is available as a digital download through the PlayStation Store.

Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2 features many of the fan favorite mobile suits, whether by land or space. In the game, players need to fight for survival in 6v6 online battles against players from around the world.

Players can experience a new kind of infantry battle with new additions to the in-game combat. Pilots now have the ability to fight alongside mechas by placing bombs in enemy bases or asking for support fire. In addition, Mobile Suits can now be customized to give players the chance to improve their favorite mecha by earning Development Points through battle.

Shoya Yamazaki, Director of IP Strategy at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., shared that the Gundam series has long offered a universe that has storylines full of honor, drama, and of course, intense action. He went on to say that by bringing the game to the Americas, they "invite western audiences to experience the Gundam world first-hand by taking part in visceral Gundam Mobile Suit battles and to dive deeper into this storied universe."
