There's a new free-to-play Gundam game heading to consoles -- in Japan, at least.

Bandai Namco has announced Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation Next for the PlayStation 3 and 4, and judging by the trailer, it's full of rock 'em, sock 'em robot action. There's even a beta currently underway that you can get in on if you have a Japanese account for PS3 or PS4.

If you're a Gundam fan in the West, however... well, it might be a long, or even perpetual wait. There's no word as to whether this game will be coming to our shores anytime soon. When it does, Bandai Namco would be crazy not to offer a Founder's/Early Access Pack for $100,000 or so that includes your own full-size Gundam. CRAZY.
