Gundam Battle Operation 2 is celebrating its 3rd anniversary with the Nu Gundam and Sazabi, as well as a new bossfight.
The theme for the third anniversary appears to be Char’s Counterattack, seeing the iconic mobile suits Nu Gundam and Sazabi added in a limited banner for the event.
They’ll be implemented via a special Step-Up banner, letting players play as the Nu Gundam and Sazabi in Gundam Battle Operation 2.The Nu Gundam is available to be pulled now, while the Sazabi will only be added to the game starting August 5th.
The two mobile suits also featured in the new Opening Cinematic, comemmorating the game’s 3-year anniversary in Japan.
In keeping with the Char’s Counterattack theme for the event, however, that’s not all. The game will also add a new bossfight against the Alpha Azieru, the giant mobile armor from the climax of Char’s Counterattack.
The Nu Gundam and Sazabi are two of the main mobile suits featured in Char’s Counterattack, the movie that closes off the story of original Gundam protagonist Amuro Ray and his rival, Zeon Ace Char Aznable. One interesting feature they bring to the Battle Operation 2 is their Funnels- drones controlled via the Psycommu technology built into the mobile suits.
