It Came From Japan: New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Endless Duel

Based on the popular anime hit series Mobile Suite Gundam Wing, New Mobile Report Gundam Wing Endless Duel hit Japan for the SNES in the late 90’s. Sadly the game never made it across the states. We missed out on a great 2D Gundam game, luckily there are English patches out there if interested.

When starting the game you are greeted with a intro screen, playing one of the themes in classic 8 bit. Nostalgia will hit as you gaze upon the characters, and Mobile Suite Gundam.

The gameplay is similar to Marvel vs. Capcom in which your able to perform air combos, specials, and you can dash. It’s a really fun game that gets crazy the more you play. Giant robots, projectiles, and laser swords. 

What more could you ask for in a Gundam game?

If you’re a fan of Gundam you’ll love this game, if not you’ll still love it. You really don’t need to know anything about Gundam to play it. Don’t be shy If you’re just interested in it, try it out.

Within the game is a story mode, vs. mode, trial mode, and of course the options. When beating the game in hard mode, it will give you a code for unlocking a secret Gundam named Epyon.

In total there are 10 Gundams you can control. One of them requiring you to test your skill for you to unlock.

A fun mode is trial mode. You face Gundam after Gundam, until you die or reach 99 victories. Good luck If your actually going to attempted to beat it.

Overall it’s great fighting game you should play with a friend, especially if you are a fan of Gundam Wing.
