Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3, known in Japan as Gundam Musou 3 (ガンダム無双3 Gundam Musō 3?) is a tactical action video game based on the Gundam anime series, and the sequel to 2008's Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2. It is developed by Koei/Omega Force and is published by Namco Bandai. The game was revealed in the September issue of Famitsu.[1]

Differences from prior games[]

From previous Dynasty Warriors titles[]

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam follows in the style of previous Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors games as an action-oriented hack and slash with some tactical elements. However, both Dynasty Warriors: Gundam games have unique gameplay mechanics and twists that set them apart from the core Dynasty Warriors series. The greatest of these is the core content: rather than using characters and story from the novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, the games draw their material from across the various Mobile Suit Gundam anime series. Another change is the player's choice of pilots and mecha independent of each other, allowing the ability to use any combination of man and machine.

There are also changes in gameplay: players are given more ranged combat options than in other Dynasty Warriors games, although melee combat is still the focus of the game. Units in Dynasty Warriors: Gundam are much more mobile, using their thrusters to dash, jump in mid-air, and (for some) even fly.

From previous Dynasty Warriors: Gundam titles[]

Screenshots and promotional renders for the game show a new, cel-shaded graphical style that brings the series visually closer to its animated roots, along with a new streamlined HUD that minimizes screen clutter. A brief article from Siliconera also revealed that the enemy AI (a commonly criticized weak point in the Dynasty Warriors franchise) has been revamped, with enemy units now gaining the ability to reinforce and support each other in combat. Aside from this, very little is known of the game at this time, with more details expected to surface at Tokyo Game Show 2010.

All series and units from Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 have been confirmed to return for the series' third entry. Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3 also marks the debut of units from Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, After War Gundam X, and Mobile Suit Gundam 00.
