Dynasty Warriors: Gundam – Gameplay Footage

Gundam refuses to lie quietly. The series has been a staple of anime fans for decades, and it seems the fervor has yet to diminish. Fans of the series (I’m looking at you Japan) clamor for new titles, buying anything and everything that has a robot exploding another similar robot. The game doesn’t even have to be good, it just needs a giant robot with a sword, and it’ll sell extremely well.

Well, Gundam fans, you are in luck. It seems this latest Gundam entry meets that very criteria. Robot? Check. Sword? Check. Explosions? Double check. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam seems to be all that you would expect. Mash some buttons, blow up some robots, boss fight, then repeat.

Perhaps I am too quick to judge. Perhaps the developer can pull out something really special that we seem to have missed in the game videos, demo, screenshots, theme, plot, and overall concept. Perhaps.

Okay, this will sound very farfetched, but probably has the best chance of being correct. After 20 or so Dynasty Warriors games, and 20 or so Gundam games, both companies realized they were in a position where if they didn’t bring something new to the table, or gain new fans to the series, then all was lost. The idea quickly came of creating Supernerds. Merging the Samurai/Ninja loving fans of Dynasty Warriors, with the Giant Robot/huge number of robots fighting at once fans of Gundam. Doing so would revitalize both the companies, prolong the titles, and allow them to make another game with the same formula but different title. Not to mention the fact that Supernerds would be able to persuade all of their friends that its a good game, and so they can take over the gaming industry.
