Gundam Versus NEXT (ガンダムバーサスNEXT) is an upcoming video game to be released for the PS4 on July 6th 2017, first revealed at the 2016 Playstation Tokyo Game Show Press Conference and is the fifth generation in the Gundam VS series. It will be released in Japan and Asian territories on July 6th with a North American release slated for September 29th.


The game features improved graphics and more detailed background destruction and will retain its 2v2 format, although now 3vs3 battles are now possibile. The game still retains its team battle gameplay but will also include modes only possible with the Playstation 4. Along with the standard Boost Step and Boost Dash techniques, a new "Boost Dive" mechanic allows for players to boost downward at will, making combat much more fluid quicker. The Assist mechanic from Gundam Vs Gundam Next has been reworked into Strikers, which allows you to select your own assist unit, with over 180 to unlock and choose, allowing for flexibility in combos. Like the Assists from that game, Striker usage is finite, though it can be replenished by activating Burst.

The Burst system has also reverted back to a more simplified form in the form of Blazing Gear and Lightning Gear. Blazing Gear focuses on enhancing melee attributes while Lightning Gear improves lock on range and ranged weaponry. In addition, these Gears not only enhance the user, but their partner as well.
