Furthermore, along with the classic 2 versus 2 gameplay, Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Force now has a new playable fighting system for team battles. In this mode, players function fight in teams of 6 Mobile Suits (with one "Chief" commander) and 1 battleship against opposing enemy forces.
Another new playable mode is titled "Extreme Force", where players can reenact their favorite scenes from the various Gundam anime, such as Mobile Suit Gundam: Universal Century.

For those unaware, the Gundam Vs. series plays in an arcade-based style.
In particular, each team has a set amount of points, and destroying an opponent's mecha will subtract points from that team's total. The teams fight it out via shooting and melee combat, and the first team to zero points loses.
Extreme Vs. Force will be the first localized title in the Gundam Vs. series since 2006 with Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam Vs. Zeta Gundam for the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo GameCube.
