PS3 Gundam caught in Crossfire

Game briefly known as Target in Sight now named Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire; takes shot at PlayStation 3 later this year.


Namco Bandai is tweaking its PlayStation 3 Gundam-themed game, but gamers shouldn't worry--there will still be plenty of lumbering robots turning each other into scrap metal.

The game formerly known as Mobile Suit Gundam (working title) and Mobile Suit Gundam: Target in Sight will now be known as Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire. Crossfire is due on the PS3 "later this year."

The name may show Namco's recommitment to the Gundam brand. Unlike recent games based on the popular anime and toy franchise, Crossfire will carry the Gundam name--the upcoming Xbox 360 title Mobile Ops: The One Year War and recent PlayStation 2 game MS Saga: A New Dawn do not.

The new name will reflect the "between a rock and a hard place" position players will be thrust into, as they start the game in the middle of a war between the Earth Federation and the Zeon forces. Gamers will have the option of taking either side to help decide the future of Earth.

Gundam: Crossfire has not yet been priced or rated. For more information on the game, head over to GameSpot's previous coverage.
