Namco Bandai's latest Gundam game, Gundam 00, does feature, you know, flying around and shooting at other big robots and all that big-robot-game stuff. It looks pretty okay for a 3D DS game, although we react to new Gundam games with a mixture of apprehension and outright fear. It also features a graphical text adventure element, in which you carry on conversations with 2D portraits of Gundam 00 characters.
But those two things aren't Gundam enough, nor are they DS enough. That's why Bandai Namco included a training mode designed to help you build Gundam model kits. An extra mode in the game, "GUNPLA Navi," provides step-by-step tutorials, with photographs, for building Bandai's line of Gundam models. The only part you have to figure out for yourself is how to divide your time between building models and playing the game! And, of course, buying more Gundam stuff!

This game is being done by the same team that is responsible for the PSP games and those have been really great. I am officially excited.
