The Windows edition will arrive on Steam, where the release date is listed as August 24th, just to keep us on our toes. Here's a Release Date Announcement and here's word:
SD GUNDAM BATTLE ALLIANCE is a first-of-its kind Gundam experience with stylish visuals, fast-paced single or co-op play, and a space-time bending storyline that brings together favorite characters and mechs from across the Mobile Suit Gundam universe. In the game, players must join forces to correct a distorted world, overcoming rifts in time known as “Historical Breaks” to restore the true timeline of every Gundam series. Each mission features single and multiplayer action, allowing up to three players to work together to progress through the game. SD GUNDAM BATTLE ALLIANCE also features a progression system where players must develop, enhance, and reinforce their Mobile Suits with blueprints acquired during the course of their missions. Gameplay is fast-paced combat and massive battles using a variety of melee and range attacks, different combos, and charge-based special attacks for each Mobile Suit.
