What better place to give the public their first chance to play a new Gundam video game than an expo dedicated to anime and the hobbies surrounding it(known as the Kyarahobi 2010 Expo). Gundam Extreme Vs. was first unveiled at AOU 2010 and with it’s release coming up at the end of this month, Namco is keen to get the game out there into the public view. It will certainly be at the JAMMA show next week but for fans of the anime Gundam series they had a chance to play against Namco reps on the game, as shown above. At the show the game’s producers wer eon hand to answer questions and dive into the games features. While I don’t know of any plans for Namco to give this an official release outside of Japan, there’s always a good chance that someone could import it for play.

Alternate headline: “Konami strikes back in DJ Max Technika’s hometown”. The location test is actually over at this moment after Konami was able to gather player input over the period of a few weeks. Fortunately we have some extensive videos of the game in action now, it’s like a chaotic version of DJMT with the touchable notes floating all over the place as opposed to sitting on fixed points of the screen. Reflec Beat makes it’s Japanese debut next month in October but Technika 2 will not be far behind with a December release.
