Bandai Namco has announced today that MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS. MAXIBOOST ON (try saying that five times fast) will be releasing on July 30th, 2020 in North America on PS4 after having previously being available only in Japanese arcades.
Before the game’s full release, Bandai Namco will be hosting a Closed Beta Test between April 25th-April 27th on PS4. Registration is open now until April 10th, and you can apply for the Closed Beta Test through here.
If you’re one of the lucky ones, you’ll be notified on April 17th and the pre-load will be available between April 17th-April 25th so you can download the beta client ahead of the beta’s release.
From the press release:
Set in the globally iconic GUNDAM universe, MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS. MAXIBOOST ON enables players to take 2-on-2 PVP combat to the next level with Mobile Suits spanning the entire breadth of the franchise’s history. MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS. MAXIBOOST ON features 185 playable units from 36 different GUNDAM iterations, each with unique abilities designed to match any fan’s personal playstyle. Players can choose between three different EX Burst Systems—Fighting Burst, Extend Burst, and Shooting Burst—to coordinate with allies and lay waste to all that stand (or fly) in their way.
In addition, fans who purchase MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS. MAXIBOOST ON early will receive a bonus playable mobile suit, the fierce Gundam Barbatos Lupus Rex.
It’s time to suit up & prepare for a Closed Network Test, #Gundam fans!
