Gundam Seed Announced
According to Famitsu magazine, Bandai has announced that Gundam Seed is coming to the PlayStation 2. The game is about 40 percent complete and follows the same plot as the original October-aired anime in Japan. The main character is Kira Yamato, with Asran Zara and Frey Alstar as supporting characters from the anime. The story mode is the only mode announced, as Gundam Seed is considered an action shooter. A new neuro pointer system has been put in place that automatically searches and locks onto its target, while Gundam mobile-suit robots battle. The controls are stated to be rather basic with an easy learning curve to the game's mechanics.
Gundam Seed is scheduled for release in Japan this summer.
