De free-to-play teamgebaseerde mechtitel Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation 2 is al een tijdje uit, maar heeft tot nu toe zijn weg nog niet gevonden naar de westerse markt. Daar komt echter verandering in, want Bandai Namco gaf ons het heugelijke nieuws, vanaf Anime Expo 2019, dat deze titel dit jaar nog naar het Westen komt. De game blijft ook bij ons een PS4-exclusive.

Volgens de officiële website wordt de game als volgt omschreven:

Win battles and become the best Mobile Suit pilot ever!
