Namco Bandai tells MS Saga

Role-playing game set in the Gundam universe ships to stores for the PlayStation 2.

While American Gundam releases have for the most part been limited to action-oriented games that let gamers take the controls of giant battling robots, Namco Bandai is now letting players take the role of the person behind those controls. The publisher today announced that its sci-fi role-playing game MS Saga: A New Dawn has shipped to North American retailers for the PlayStation 2. As 16-year-old orphan Tristan, gamers must band together with allies to stop a sinister opponent and his mechanized forces from destroying the world, customizing their mobile suits with more than 260 different parts along the way. MS Saga is rated E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older and retails for $49.99.

They really need to make a Gundam game using the ZOE system.

I am a big Gundam fan (ANIME ONLY), but the games always suck because the developers can never capture the level of speed and action seen in all of the anime and also contain compelling game mechanics. So I didn't expect this one to be any better.

Wow, I guess alot of you have not played any other gundam rpg. All of them use the super deformed artstyle, and more than half of them are good. I get the feeling that some of you are confusing the super deformed art style with "SD Gundam"

Well all I know is I am going to be picking it up I was hoping it was more along the Lines of Gundam Wing then SD Gundam but it is all good as long as it plays well.

I was all pumped for a Gundam RPG but when I heard it was SD *sigh* I got other games to buy.

it would be a lot better if it wasn't super-deformed, though in general gundam games don't seem to do very well

Yeah what the hell made them make a gundam RPG with deformed mobile suits. Its retarded. Why can they not simply make an adult themed one too. Let the main character be a mercenary or something for God's sakes. AND WHY THE HELL IS THE MAIN CHARACTER ALWAYS A FRIGGIN TEENAGER!!! WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?!?!
