Gundam Evolution apparently features secret MVP intros, complete with a fake out to draw maximum salt from players.
Fans have begun to discover these secret clips, which override your currently equipped MVP choice- not unlike Sombra’s Play of the Game intro from Overwatch.
“Honestly the MVP fakeouts are great and I love the references they put in the animations, hope it doesn’t get taken away“, writes Twitter user SayaDoesStuff.
“Even in the MVP screens, we ain’t safe from a Barbatos airdrop”, writes YouTube user animegx45, warning people about the likelihood of being jumped by the Barbatos Gundam.
While no official explanation has been given for them, the leading theory is that it requires two Gundam Evolution players to score extremely close to each other- earning you the fake out MVP intro.
Some speculate that they’re tied to specific pairings of mobile suits- but given the Turn A Gundam has nothing to do with the DOM Trooper, it’s less likely compared to just being about closely-tied scores.
We’ve reached out to Bandai Namco Entertainment about the conditions of the secret fake out MVPs in Gundam Evolution, and will update with their statement.
Many of these are also incredibly fun references to the Gundam series overall, too: the DOM Troopers perform a Jet Stream attack, complete with two additional DOMs to support you in taking down your opponent.
Some of the lesser mobile suits are sure to be satisfying for players too, such as the Guntank’s which features it running over its adversaries before pointing its main guns to their head.
Considering that Gundam Evolution is built around the idea of esports, the idea of having fake outs like this is sure to be great for the community- just the fact that so many people are discussing how hype they are is a good sign for the community.
