Mobile Suit Gundam: Zeonic Front is a video game based in the One Year War that was released in September 2001 for the PlayStation 2 home entertainment system. The game departs from the standard formula of Universal Century video games by featuring a campaign focused on the Principality of Zeon, rather than the Earth Federation, though the game does enable simulations where the characters can act as members of the Federation, as well as the ability to unlock Federation pilots as playable characters within the Zeon campaign.

In addition to its two major gameplay modes, Zeonic Front features a cutscene viewer, as is common in action games. Of the available movies is an extended clip featuring reanimated footage wherein the main character of the game narrates the major events of the One Year War, largely following the White Base, from the perspective of Lieutenant Commander Schmitzer, the commanding officer of the Zeon task force Midnight Fenrir Corps. The movie covers everything from the beginning of the war to the signing of the peace treaty that ended it in at least moderate detail.

Story and Campaign

The campaign of the game follows a Zeon squad known as Midnight Fenrir, under the command of LCDR. Garret Schmitzer. Schmitzer, the commanding officer of the Corps, is a veteran of the One Week Battle and injuries sustained at the hands of Lt. Agar in this battle forced him to give up his role as a mobile suit pilot.. The Midnight Fenrir Corps were then founded by Kycilia Zabi as an elite fighting force to serve her directly in her personal objectives. Being a tool of Kycillia this naturally means that the Midnight Fenrir often end up fighting directly for other individuals in her service, such as Char Aznable and M'Quve. Following is a story and mission summary as the game progresses:
