Statue of Liberty? Striking, but a bit demure. Trenchcoat-clad Stalin statue in Gori, Georgia? Iconic, but disheartening. Giant RX-78-2 Gundam statue at Shiokaze Park in Tokyo, Japan? Unquestionably badass. The massive biped is currently under construction, part of a celebration for the 30 year ann...

Gundam fans just might have a new way of rewatching the original series. According to Andriasang, Namco Bandai was showing off a prototype Gundam video-on-demand service for PS3 at the Tokyo International Anime Fair. It's called Gundam Viewchives and apparently won't be like any old VOD service, s...

If you had asked us in 2007 if we thought Dynasty Warriors meets Gundam was a good idea, we probably would've just laughed. It seemed like such a silly concept, perhaps because of the connotations associated with both titles; however, in actuality, it's pretty much what every Gundam fan really want...

We knew that several new games were going to be bundled with a PSP-3000 pack in Japan, and Gundam vs. Gundam just so happens to be one of them. The interesting thing about this bundle is that the PSP-3000 has a special Gundam-themed embossing on its backside; this will be the first PSP-3000 model -...

Why can't robots get along? The various pilots of the dozens of Gundam series seem to be enraged -- they're all fighting each other! We have to join together and tell Namco Bandai that we won't stand up for this. This robot-on-robot bloodshed needs to stop! Wait, Gundam 00 is also in this collectio...

Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2 will be headed to the US in 2009, Bandai Namco announced today. Originally named Gundam Musou 2, the game will feature an online versus mode, as well as "larger Mobile Suits, more epic battles and compelling storyline." It sounds like more of the same mech-on-mech action...

Three huge games are now officially slated for this holiday season in Japan, and two of them are certainly games you probably won't want to miss importing. Dissidia: Final Fantasy is now set for a ...

The 2 vs. 2 arcade fighter will feature over 30 playable units, with extra bonus ones unique to the PSP release, according...

PSP's Gundam Battle Universe is only a week away (for importers, at least). Namco Bandai is cramming a load of Gundam history into this upcoming action game, and this trailer does its job of reiterating that point. This lengthy video goes over the nearly endless stream of characters and sui...

When we saw the marked-down Gundam Cross Drive DS Lite yesterday -- which, by the way, we hope you did, or the picture above won't even come close to making sense -- we briefly considered dropping the $160 for it. But in the end we decided that, even though $160 was cheap for that item, it's still...

The SD Gundam G Generation Cross Drive limited-edition DS Lite was released in Japan on August 9 of last year. It's one of the coolest LE Lites released, with its simple, clean design, featuring the logo found on Amuro Ray's RX-93 v Gundam. And now, for as long as there are units left, it's availa...

This Gundam Battle Universe trailer has everything a Gundam otaku needs. There's a good set of mobile suits to see. Even more exciting is watching those same mobile suits blow each other up all to the sonance of those wacky sound effects and overly-excited voice-overs. What's there not to love...

Here's a bit of news for all you Gundam otaku out there. The Gundam Battle Universe game for the PSP has a new website to go check out. It's got the usual background music playing and some new screens to look at; however, as with most new websites, content is still scarce. Oh well, if you've lookin...

We realized today that we don't know Japan as well as we thought we did. With our reasoning, a new Gundam game + the popularity of the DS = cha-ching. While the debuting Emblem of Gundam had decent sales for its first week, though, taking the twelfth spot isn't all that impressive -- especially sinc...

Something caused a Phoenix Wright sales revival, and we suspect it was the Gyakuten Meets Orchestra concert (which was also a Gyakuten Kenji hype event). Both the first and second Gyakuten Saiban games for the DS ended up in the top thirty this week. Newcomer We're Fossil Diggers (a second-party eff...

If you can't read Japanese, this is going to be a tough pill to swallow, but you can trust us ... right? It seems another Gundam game is making its way to the PSP -- this one's based on the Gundam ZZ license and has some familiar faces from the show, if you can remember back that far. This is a clas...

In a strange turn of events, there's only one new DS game in Japan's top thirty this week, and that's Oshiri Kajiri Mushi's Rhythm Lesson DS. In case that title doesn't ring a bell, you may know it better as "that butt-biting bug game." If there's one thing we've learned from this bug, it's that bit...
