Mobile Suit Gundam: Battlefield Record U.C.0081 is an upcoming Playstation 3 game. It is regarded as the "spiritual successor" to PlayStation 2 title Mobile Suit Gundam: Lost War Chronicles and part of Gundam's 30 year anniversary celebration. Famitsu reports that it will support up to 8 players online via Playstation Network.
In the Story Mode, players step into the persona of Hugues Couraud who leads “Phantom Sweep,” an Earth Federation strike force that hunts the remaining Zeon forces after the conclusion of the One Year War. On the side of the Zeon are the “Invisible Knights” who are led by Erik Blanque and provide adversarial foil to the forces of the Earth Federation.
Gundam Senki U.C. 0081 features over 70 Gundam and Zaku mechs including the RX-78-7 which is the seventh model of the legendary Gundam mech. An online mode allows up to four players to cooperate on missions or engage in blistering firefights against each other. According to the preorder solicitation, Bandai will include a bonus DLC card with the first production of the game.
Mirroring real life, a giant Gundam statue stands tall in Japan’s PlayStation Home. You can visit the (virtual) statue in Home Square from July 11 to July 23.
The current release date for Japan is set at September 3rd, 2009. It is currently unknown whether or not this game is being planned for regions outside of Japan.
