Bandai Namco has released new Gundam Breaker 3 details and screenshots, introducing the game’s basic customization, merge-based strengthening system, and latest playable Gunpla.
Get the information below.
■ Basic Customization
Your Own, One-of-a-Kind Gundam
In the Gundam Breaker series, in which you collect the head, body, arms, legs, backpack, weapons, and shields from enemies, it’s possible to create a one-of-a-kind Gundam. Since there are over 150 participating mobile suits, approximately 75 billion differnt combinations can be realized, save for weapons and shields.
Your Mobile Suit configuration is displayed on the right of the screen. You can even make full use of Gunpla techniques like coloring and weathering.
By changing your arms to a different Mobile Suit’s, your Mobile Suit’s abilities and armaments will change. It should be noted that you can not set individual arms, one by one.
You can set techniques to various buttons, including your special “EX-Action” move, awakening “Burst Action” techniques, and armaments attached to parts.
For the first time, Gundam Breaker 3 is equipped with a “Builders Parts” feature. This is a new customization element that lets you equip each part with various additions. Whether it’s the head, body, arms, left arm, right arm, both legs, left leg, right leg, middle of the backpack, both sides of the backpack, left side of the backpack, or right side of the backpack, try adding additional armaments and decorations within the slot’s limits.
Equip a “canon” on your shoulder. Of course, via “Actions,” you can assign a button to the canon for use in battle.
In Builders Parts, you can adjust the XYZ positioning, XYZ rotation, and even the scale.
Fill up the slots and create a Gundam all your own!
■ Strengthening System
In Gundam Breaker 3, you can strengthen parts through four different methods: single merge, batch merge, plastic merge, and derivation merge.
Merge the part you want to strengthen with one different part (material part). The part you want to strengthen will receive a level up, ability enhancement, ability inheritance, and rarity raise. The merged material part will be lost.
Merge the part you want to strengthen with a multiple of different parts (material parts). Since the parts you no longer need are put together and merged, there is no ability inheritance or rarity raise. (However, if the part you want to strengthen has the same ability as the material parts, that ability will be strengthened.) The material parts you merged will be lost.
Merge the part you want to strengthen with the experience point-raising items (plastic), and ability-strengthening and inheritance items (cubes) obtained during missions. The part you want to strengthen will receive a level up, ability enhancement, and ability inheritance. The plastic and cubes you merged will be lost.
Merge selected parts with different parts (material parts) to produce new parts. The new parts will receive a level up, ability enhancement, ability inheritance, and rarity raise. The merged parts will be lost.
