‘New Gundam Breaker’ will have its PC release delayed.

With the PlayStation 4 version of New Gundam Breaker released in a few weeks, Bandai Namco has announced that the PC version of the game will have its release delayed.

In a recent Tweet, Bandai Namco has explained that the PC version of New Gundam Breaker will have its release delayed until later this Summer to improve the quality of the game for this particular platform.

As this will be the first Gundam Breaker game to come to PC, I think it is wise that Bandai Namco takes some extra time to get the game right.

After all, there are plenty of PC ports of console games that are often terrible, as they were obviously rushed to market and thus sacrificed any kind of meaningful quality assurance.

In recent years, Bandai Namco has been trying to change the fortunes of Gundam games outside of Japan and the PC userbase is clearly something that is very different in the West in terms of its requirements.

As such, I think the delay of the PC version of New Gundam Breaker is a sensible decision.

The good news here though is that the PS4 version will still be released later this June, so we are still getting the game on console in a timely fashion

New Gundam Breaker is released for PS4 on June 22. The PC version of the game is delayed until a later this Summer.
