Well, no, not really. But when a strategy
game called Emblem of Gundam
comes along, we're pretty much required to make that joke. The latest Gundam
game on the DS explores the history of the Gundam
universe while simulating strategic ground battles.Emblem of Gundam
is, at its core, a turn-based strategy game. It also includes a heavy character-driven adventure component, based around conversations between characters. At certain points in the game, you'll be given a choice about which scenario to follow, or, as the game puts it, which "history button" to press.
Expect a lot
of story in Emblem of Gundam
: the game is designed to add extra perspective to the storylines in Mobile Suit Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team, Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: A War in the Pocket, Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory,
and Mobile Suit Gundam Z.
