Original article [Fri 27th May, 2022 04:55 BST]: Earlier this year in February, Bandai Namco announced it would be bringing its action RPG SD Gundam Battle Alliance to Switch and multiple other platforms. Developer Artdink Corporation has now locked in a release date - confirming the game will be released worldwide, across all platforms, on 25th August 2022 for $59.99 USD.

There'll also be a Deluxe Edition available for $84.99 - which includes a season pass, an early Gundam unlock, and some other pre-order bonuses (SD Gundam World Sangoku Soketsuden Pack and Mobile Suit Launch Support: Start Dash Pack).

Here's a bit about the story from our previous coverage of the game:

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.
