In September, during the Tokyo Game Show 2015, Namco Bandai Entertainment Asia had dropped a neutron bomb annoucement - something we ourselves never sawcoming:
MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS-FORCE ENGLISH LOCALIZED VERSION FOR PLAYSTATION® VITA COMING THIS WINTER
SINGAPORE – BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Asia is proud to announce that MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS-FORCE with English localization will be coming your way. For the first time MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXVS series will be localized with English subtitles and it will be available in Southeast Asia across Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia. “MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM EXTREME VS-FORCE” will be playable on the PlayStation® VITA system.
“We are looking forward to bring MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM series fans an English localized version of the game at long last. We are in the midst of localization and hope to bring a good quality product that everyone can enjoy, so do look forward to the release in winter.” said Rainel Tan, General Manager at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Asia.
And now, finally, we have the English version open for pre-order, which is exciting as knowing that there will be an actual localized version of everyone's favorite mecha on mecha combat game :)
As for the game itself,Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme VS Force will feature a number of new playable Mobile Suits as well as pilots. Players can expect the series' familiar Gundam battles, as well as new unit-commanding large-scale battles in Extreme Force Mode. In the larger battles players will be able to assemble a unit of six Mobile Suits and one battleship, setting up three platoons of two Mobile Suits each. Using the new 'Force System,' players can pause the battle and command their troops, designating movement destinations for platoons and providing strategic instructions including: advance, withdraw, gather, and disperse.
'Extreme Force Mode' is the primary mode and starts with a game-original mission, and continues onto missions where players can enjoy Universal Century episodes consisting of various situations from Mobile Suit Gundam up until Mobile Suit Gundam UC. You’ll acquire new Mobile Suits and develop your pilot while completing missions, and organize and operate your own unit while aiming for domination.

This game plays exceptionally well on the PSVita there isn't any lag/frame-rate issue compared to Gundam Breaker 3 on the same system.
I assume that you have already read some critics' reviews about this game and you might be quite disappointed about this title. What I want to say however, is that do not let those reviews mislead you. I've played this game for quite a while and I've been having a hell of fun in this game. Yeah it WAS a game that lack enough content prior to the updates. But now after all the updates we have more than enough modes to play and this game now feels really like a complete and solid game. All told, if you don't mind the absence of multiplayer mode and want to have a mecha or Gundam action game for your vita, this is a must buy hands down. No frame drops, simple but deep combat mechanics, nice graphics for a handheld title, and also the discounted price, this game will not disappoints you.
This game here I like, however I didn't fall fully in love with, the reason being is while its faster paced than Breaker 3 it has some strategy elements and given I am not big on that style of game-play it did bring the experience down a little for me. Not that it's not fun and for someone who likes Strategy as well this can be a bonus but I thought it worth noting as other entries in the Extreme Vs series didn't have that element.
Still worth a buy but if you had to pick between Breaker 3 or Extreme Vs Force I would pick Breaker 3 every time
Already owned the japanese version. The Asia-English version is very nice. English translation here is a big plus. Else, you know what to expect from a gundam game :)
Disclaimer: This is NOT a versus game by any means.
This is a game mixing Versus gameplay with a mission format approach. Versus has always captured the spirit of Gundam, from suit movement, to combat animations. So it's almost a dream come true. Playing through the 0079 to Unicorn storyline on the Versus engine is simply amazing.
The original release only had mission mode with a rather shoddy roster, most of available suits are the "good" side suits; rival suits are missing in this game.
Currently, new modes (Versus/Arcade) and around 4-5 additional suits have been added to the game. I treat the game as a side meal to the Versus experience on the PS3, and as such, I recommend the game to any Gundam and Versus fans.
I definitely wished more suits were present, but what is currently available makes the purchase worthwhile.
