Good day, fair men and women, and welcome to another rip-roaring edition of Go West!, your weekly column about new Japanese game releases over in that country called Japan. Unsurprisingly, we have a packed Thursday of new games covering pretty much every genre ever. Yes, that’s hyperbole. No, I don’t care.
There’s a lot to deal with, so I’m just going to jump right into things.
Here we go.
Are you ready?
Bandai Namco formally announced the development of Gundam Breaker 3 today. For those of you unaware, this is the series of games in which you build your own custom mobile suits from various Gundam model parts, and then do all sorts of missions and coop scenarios. The second game is super rad.
Gundam Breaker 3 will be hitting the PlayStation 4 and the Vita in Japan in 2016.
Salutations, and welcome to another riveting edition of Go West!, your infrequent column about the latest Japanese import video games and maybe other things I guess. We have entered the final month of the year, which means there’s going to be an onslaught of Japanese games releasing weekly until the end of 2015. I hope you’re ready.
I’m definitely not.
This week’s release list is a nice mix of old and new, with a little something for everybody. Follow me as I take a tour through the latest in imports.
Everybody aboard the duck boat.
