Bandai Namco has released new details and screenshots of SD Gundam G Generation Genesis introducing the game’s systems, including the return of the Sub-Flight System and the new Group Attack system, and introducing a “Downloadable Content Pass” included with pre-orders featuring four add-ons due out in the months following the game’s launch.
Get the information below.
■ 1. An Introduction to the G Generation Series’ Systems
The development, planning, and exchange functionality that make up the best parts of the G Generation series are well and strong in SD Gundam G Generation Genesis. Not only can you enjoy the pedigree of G Generation‘s unique mecha, you can acquire a variety of mecha and put together your own original unit.
By developing a mecha to a specific level, a different mecha can be strengthened.
By fusing two mecha that you possess, you can produce an entirely different mecha.
By exchanging the mecha you possess and Capital (money), you can barter for a different mecha.
Sub-Flight System (SFS)
The Sub-Flight System returns in SD Gundam G Generation Genesis. By putting your mecha in sub-flight, not only is their range of movement significantly increased, it allows even mecha not adapted to the terrain to be sortied. (For example, Acguy, an underwater-use Mobile Suit, can be sortied in space.) Master the SFS system to take on missions with utmost efficiency.
New Element: “Get Gauge”
In SD Gundam G Generation Genesis, you can effectively utilize guest mecha during missions. Guest mecha have a “Get Gauge” that builds up by taking out enemies. When it reaches its max, the guest mecha are added to your production list. After clearing the stage, you’ll be able to see the guest mecha on your list and produce them.
■ 2. New System: Strike the Enemy with “Group Attacks”
In SD Gundam G Generation Genesis, the “Group Attacks” from Genesis are possible. It’s different from standard support attacks in that it sees battleships and Mobile Suits unite to crush the enemy with an attack.
About Group Attacks
“Group Attack” is one of the available actions when using a battleship, and will trigger a cooperative attack with the ally units placed around it when selected. It costs Energy to use and is also possible to lock on to as many enemy units as there are allies within the battleship’s fixed range. Since it damages several enemy units all at once, it gives birth to a new sense of strategy in battle. In SD Gundam G Generation Genesis, battleships can even level up and be strengthened the same as mecha.
