The Gundam franchise has been as popular a subject of video games as it has been anime, especially in recent years. Now, Gundam Memories is ready to strike Japanese PSPs on June 23.
The full Japanese title is Gundam Memories: Tatakai no Kioku, the last part being Japanese for “Memories of Battle.” Why they use English “meh-moh-rees” in the first part and the Japanese in the second is just another baffling example of the use of foreign languages in Japanese marketing. Described as a “tactical change action game,” the game probably draws its title from the fact that fans can relive the stories of three different Mobile Suit: Gundam movies, specifically Gundam Unicorn, Gundam SEED Destiny, and Gundam 00: Awakening the Trailblazer. This will apparently be the first time for latter story to make a video game appearance.
