SD Gundam G Generation 3D, the newest entry in Namco Bandai Games's popular world-spanning strategy series, will release exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS on December 22nd.
Pricing for the software is ¥6,090, with the Char's Customize Nintendo 3DS premium boxset retailing for ¥21,090.
SD Gundam G Generation 3D takes advantage of the 3DS's capabilities and lets the player experience solid 3D maps and combat screens with an original scenario based on Gundam. Mobile suits move in and out in impressive combat scenes.
This is the first time Gundam AGE will appear in a home video game.

New systems evolve the game!
Along with updates meant to smooth out the old systems, Spirit Commands and an option to select which version of a character is used deepen strategy!
＜The new Spirit Command system!＞
Along with the existing GGen systems 'Chance Step', 'Tension', and 'Support', 'Spirit Commands' are now available with which to prove your tactical expertise!
▲ Spirit Commands become available as you level up your characters. Each character can learn up to four Spirit Commands, each uniquely suited to their personality.
＜Choose a character's setup!＞
A system where taking down an enemy grants another move. Using the spirit command 'Awakening', units can keep going until their EM is completely drained.
If an enemy is too far away even with Chance Step, you can activate Accel or Snipe to catch up!
Pilots can be either 'Routed', 'Unsure', 'Normal', 'Enthusiastic', or 'Fired Up', affecting their attack power and accuracy.
Routed pilots can't attack at all, but a quick 'Yell' Spirit command will fire them up right away!
Nearby allied units can help out with an attack. It's great for leveling up weaker units without exposing them to a counterattack. By using the 'Effort' Spirit command, you can even double the EXP they gain!
Multi-Lock Weapons attack a number of enemies on one shot. By using the Spirit Commands Valor or Soul, you can inflict huge amounts of damage in one shot!
Previously in GGen, characters appearing in multiple series would appear once for each series, but now, they appear as once character whose timeline can be selected.
While each setting shares basic stats, Spirit Commands and character abilities change depending on setting.
＜Old systems refined for smoother play!＞
▲ Char can be set anywhere from Gundam to Char's Counterattack.
Menus now feature helpful icons and text on the lower screen. While looking at the map, the top screen displays the tactical layout while the bottom screen contains information on the selected unit.
Asteroids and colonies are displayed in 3D for easier visibility.
Rather than a multitude of teams, each ship designates a single leader, and the player selects which units and characters to bring along.
▲ A bonus for being within the leader's command radius replaces the previous penalty for leaving it. Characters are able to act on their own more effectively.
The option list now displays easy-to-understand icons.
Players can freely select stages, with more and more opening up as they successfully conquer older ones. Discover new stages and explain the game world!

Fans will love this! There's also a premium boxset featuring an exclusive Nintendo 3DS design!
