Mobilesuit Gundam [WonderSwan Color – Cancelled]

In 2001 Bandai announced Mobilesuit Gundam for WonderSwan Color. However the game concept, known during production as “the Net Gundam“, first concept was in 1997 when developers at Bandai started to think to create a Gundam game designed to work over the Internet. was a strategy game that allowed gamers to play as a soldier for the Republic of Zion or the Earth Federation and engage fights in operation plans announced every week by server-side so to battle with other humans online. Over the time you could even become a leader of your chosen side.

The online component was guaranteed through the WonderGate, an add on that allowed the WonderSwan to access to NTT Docomo network, or through a special cartridge to connect with a PC (see image below). This interesting title, the first multiplayer online game for a dedicated handheld system, was planned to be released in autumn of the same year but seems the concept was far too ambitious so Bandai quietly cancelled the project.



Gundam Battle Assault 2 [PSX – Beta / Unused]

Gundam Battle Assault 2 for the PSX, is, disregarding it’s name, the third gundam fighting game for the system to be made, (Gundam the Battle Master, Gundam Battle Assault, Gundam Battle Assault 2) and was released on July 17th, of 2002, late in the life of the PSX system. Being the third in the series, it has four characters leftover from previous games. These are the four that were left out:

Hamma Hamma
Zeta Gundam (not to be confused with the Double Zeta, which is a normal character)

Aside from a few glitchy moves, and the fact you need Gameshark codes to use these characters, they are fully playable in the Vs. modes. Oh, and yes, it shows the pilots that are in the suits, (they’re turned off in the below video) but the only one that’s acurate, is The-O, with Paptimus Scirocco. The other three pilots are either wrong, or display somewhat glitchy.

Fight 1: Hamma Hamma vs. Epyon
Fight 2: Qubeley vs. Psyco Gundam Mk III
Fight 3: The-O vs. Tallgeese III
Fight 4: Zeta Gundam vs. Hydra Gundam
