Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. (機動戦士ガンダム エクストリームバーサス) is a 3D Arcade Fighting game and the newest in the series of Gundam VS video game series developed and published by Namco Bandai Games. It's the sequel to Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Gundam NEXT. The game was first unveiled at the AOU 2010 and confirmed to be released on September 28, 2010. The game was later released on the PlayStation 3 in December 1, 2011, featuring balance tweaks.

The game's theme song is titled "The Catalyst", performed by Linkin Park. Bandai and the band also cooperated in the development of a special HGUC 1/144 RX-78GP-01-FB kit. Its sequel, Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Full Boost will released in arcade in 2012.

Gameplay

Extreme Vs. retains the trademark gameplay of previous installments of the Gundam Vs. series, with a few adjustments and changes. During a standard arcade battle, each team is given a resource meter of 6000 points; when a mobile suit is shot down, its cost is deducted from the meter, and the first team to hit 0 loses. Each mobile suit costs 3000, 2500, 2000, or 1000 points, with higher cost machines being more powerful while cheaper machines are much weaker. A few missions, particularly boss battles, eschew this in favor of making a single machine the target and having its defeat be the goal of the stage (the player's side still has a resource meter and will lose as normal if it's depleted).

Gamplay makes use of four primary buttons: Shoot, Melee, Jump, and Search. There are also three sub-commands used by pressing Shoot and Melee (Sub-Weapon), Shoot and Jump (Special Shooting) and Melee and Jump (Special Melee). In addition to these, machines can have two different charge attacks, activated by holding the Shoot or Melee button until a meter on the ammunition display fills.

Extreme Vs. adds in two important gameplay changes. Extreme Action is the ability to dash-cancel one's attacks, allowing the player to string together larger and more damaging combos. Extreme Burst is a super mode, similar to older games' Awakenings, activated by pressing Shoot, Melee, and Jump together when a meter at the bottom of the screen is filled. Several machines (primarily those piloted by the protagonists of each series) also have a super-powerful Burst Attack, executed by pressing Shoot, Melee, and Jump together while Extreme Burst is active. Full Boost will give Burst Attacks to every mobile suit in the game.

The PlayStation 3 release adds Trial Mission Mode, which features a series of specific challenges that go outside the normal conditions of the game, such as destroying a set number of machines within a time limit or sinking a battleship such as the Argama or Archangel. Trial Mission Mode features a number of enemy-exclusive mobile suits from all the included series, as well as a number of new boss characters.

Trivia

  • Whenever a mobile suit or Gundam is destroyed, they will produce a unique explosion lifted from their source material.
    • UC: Fallout explosion as they are powered by nuclear reactors. Curiously, Quin Mantha produces a much smaller explosion than any of the other bosses
    • Wing, G and X: A smaller explosion.
    • Turn A and X: Produces a mild explosion due to their unique make up.
    • SEED and Destiny: Produces a pink colored explosion.
    • 00: Meister units produce a green explosion from their GN Drives. All other units produce a reddish color due to their pseudo GN drives.
  • In an interview with Siliconera, Ryuichiro Baba, the producer of the Extreme Vs series, stated that he was aware of the game's popularity along with its follow up among the Western fanbase. However, he was unable to localize any of the games due to the severe licensing costs. As a result, Rise of the Incarnates was developed as a substitute for the West which shares many elements of the Extreme Vs. series.
