Introducing the 4 modes available in the closed beta!

In the closed beta test, there are 4 modes available to play. Trial battle and free battle are single player modes where players can practice and get used to the various systems in play. However, ultimate match and player match both involve online play.

Of course, as with the rest of the “Kidou senshi Gundam VS” series, players can look forward to competitive play as well. Everyone taking part in this limited beta test should start thinking about how to best spend their time!!

1st Playable Mode in Closed Beta Test:
Ultimate battle: Complete each mission while strengthening your mech!

In this mode, you will continually make your mech stronger as you battle a rode of enemies to clear the course. You could say this is a mode made for speed runners, but the most unique feature here is in having another rival to fight you when this is selected in online play!

You may also play 3-on-3 battles, or have up to 6 players participate in boss hunter battles, a level of intense action yet to be seen in the series.

Obtain battle points by clearing the level, and make your mech progressively stronger. Reach for the highest rank!

Ultimate battle features
As you defeat your foes, an extra rival will appear in the various modes on offer, including “3on3” and “Boss hunter.”

You may choose between “solo play” and “online play” when selecting your sortie. If you select “online play,” an extra rival with up to 6 other players will engage in online warfare.

The retail version also includes:
Multiple difficulty settings and course selection (the closed beta only includes 1 course available for play)
The most difficult course will be available after release and will be ranked, allowing you to compete worldwide
Co-op play with your friends online 

2nd Playable Mode in Closed Beta Test:
Practice combat in Trial battle

Choose your favorite mech and fight against a computer, clearing the stage in this single player mode. This is the best place to learn how to use your mech’s techniques. In the retail version you will be able to utilize various themes, motifs, and new routes, with more to be added with future updates.

The retail version also includes:
Using motifs and the various routes with every available Gundam (the closed beta test has 1 route available for play)
A practice mode that lets you fight against specific mobile suits?!
Mechs in their relevant routes will of course stay true to their original forms, making it possible to create what-if scenarios that answer the question, “What would happen if this MS were in this battle?”

Main Menu (From What We Were Able to Make Out on The Magzine):
Ultimate battle
Trial battle
Free battle
Player match

Closed Beta Test Additional Info 1:
This closed beta test will be made available for Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea. However, the first phase of this test will be just for Japan, with the other countries joining in phases 2 and 3. Take the fight worldwide and obtain the title of “world’s best MS pilot”! 

3rd Playable Mode in Closed Beta Test:
Freely adjustable Practice Mode, Free Battle

Along with your Mecha suit and stage, you are able to choose among various factors in these modes, including mech characteristics and difficulty, and then play single-player against a computer. There are no special victory conditions or other set goals, but to simply send out your mech and battle it out like a traditional fighting game.

Available mech types include the straightforward attacking “Striker,” as well as the “Booster-Type” who can cancel aerial moves and dive towards the ground at high speed. These mechs, along with the new gameplay systems, can all be mastered through practice mode. It can be especially helpful to practice with strikers, in order to figure out the highest damage combos, which attacks to use within a combo, and find the mech best suited for you.

The Retail Version also Includes:
BGM selection (this will not be available in the closed beta)

Option Settings:

Boost gauge amount
Initial kakusei [TR1] gauge amount
Maximum kakusei  gauge amount
A team battle gauge
B team battle gauge

Freely select your teammate, opponents, their strength, and which striker type to use, then have at it! Create the most over-the-top battle you can, and polish your striker’s skills to the limit!

4th Playable Mode in Closed Beta Test:
Worldwide Player Matches

The “Kidou Senshi Gundam VS.” series is at its core a fight among players! Freely choose among various settings to create your game, search for a player, and take the fight online. You can also create a room with your customized settings and wait for players as well, or look for a friend’s room specifically.

Rooms can also be made to search for players worldwide, making this worldwide “Gundam Versus” a chance to gain new comrades—and new rivals –across all national barriers.  Whether you’re looking to become the best of the best, or a casual first timer excited to give it a try, there is something for everyone to be found here.
