Original article [Fri 22nd Jul, 2022 01:55 BST]: Following on from the news in May that SD Gundam Battle Alliance would be receiving a worldwide release for Switch on 25th August 2022, Bandai Namco has now announced a free demo. It's releasing on 28th/29th July, but the Switch version will follow at a later date.

This demo will allow players to try out 'Directory 1: Mission "Tekkadan"!' and players will also be able to transfer across the demo's save data to the full version of the game when it is released.

Here's a bit about what to expect from this upcoming release, along with the original release date announcement trailer:

"After strange incidents known as "Breaks" occur across the Gundam universe, it's your job to find out what's going on and restore the proper timeline. You'll do this by leading three mobile suits into battle - with this entry featuring over 20 different mobile suit Gundam series. There'll also be the ability to battle alongside friends in online co-op multiplayer."
