Inagaki talks shop about Crossfire’s release

Crossfire means flanking your enemy and taking them down.Over at Gamespot, Hirofumi Inagaki graced gamers and mecha fans everywhere with some additional details about the upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire launch for the PlayStation3, giving us a good look at what it takes to make it to the top of the mobile suit platoons hierarchy and what you’ll need to do to get the best mechs.

It’s been said that you start this game at the bottom of the barrel. You begin as a low-ranking officer, and the only way you get a higher rank is not only through completing missions, but in doing them well. As we mentioned in the team strategy article, you’ll be able to command other soldiers besides yourself, but he adds that a higher rank gives you access to better battle commands. He also mentions that better pilots and mobile suits become available to you with higher ranks, so there’s definitely an incentive to being a master tactician.

Inagaki also mentions some things you can expect to see in this game or for possible future content. First, this game gives players the opportunity to unlock, and I quote Inagaki now, “a brand-new mobile suit that will have a first-time appearance in a Gundam game.”

There is also a hint of potential downloadable content for this Namco Bandai game, as he says, “Although we have deferred an introduction of the tilt functionality in this title, we would like to use this in a [way] that is suitable for intuitive controlling such as sniper mode in the future.” If not downloadable content, then perhaps we can expect them to follow through on integrating tilt controls on a follow-up game, at the very least. Now that’s something worth fighting for.
