This post was originally published on this site

Bandai Namco revealed late last year that it was partnering with XR studio Atlas V (Gloom EyesBATTLESCAR) to release a Mobile Suit Gundam game for Quest. While we saw a pretty vague teaser earlier this year, the studios tossed out a little more information today for its “full-length” anime, including release window and mixed reality elements.

Update (June 26th, 2024): Announced during UploadVR’s Summer Showcase today, Mobile Suit Gundam: Silver Phantom is officially coming to Quest this fall, bringing along with it some mixed reality gameplay elements revealed in a new trailer. UploadVR says the MR part of the game is set to include the ability to fight battles in your own living room using mobile suits featured in the main storyline and exclusive suits “designed specifically for this immersive experience,” 

The new trailer follows above the original article, which includes all other extant information about the game.

Original Article (March 21st, 2024): Mobile Suit Gundam: Silver Phantom is being pitched as a “virtual reality interactive movie,” which is said to provide fans with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the Gundam series in a new way and brand new story.

While the studios were previously very light on the detail when the project was announced late last year, it’s now been revealed the narrative will take place in the Universal Century 0096, including battle scenes in outer space.

Now, just in time for the Tokyo-based anime consumer show Anime Japan, we’ve got a brand new teaser for Mobile Suit Gundam: Silver Phantom (linked above).

If you’re looking for a slightly deeper dive, Bandai Namco Filmworks and Altas V also showed off a behind-the-scenes video at SXSW 2024 last week, which gives us a brief glimpse its storyboards and character design.

In the meantime, we’ll be waiting to hear word on exactly when to expect Mobile Suit Gundam: Silver Phantom on Quest, as for now the release date is still a complete mystery. The studios tell us we should expect a Quest Store page soon however, which will let you wishlist the game.
