Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs Maxiboost On…oh man, that was a mouthful! It’s definitely one of the longest titles for a game! Then again, it’s a Gundam game, and those usually have long names.

Long name aside, the latest in Bandai Namco’s arcade series is finally coming home to the Playstation 4, with a worldwide release date slated for this July 30!

With 183 playable units (with more sure to come via DLC) and 36 stages, the game sure has numbers on its side! That’s not surprising, considering the wealth of material the developers can draw upon.
