Gundam Musou 3 Has Background Matchmaking

Play the story mode while matching takes place in the background.

Gundam Musou 3 is more than just Musou 2 with a fresh coat of cell shaded paint.

We already knew Gundam Musou 3's online play was being beefed up with four player co-op support. At the game's completion ceremony event earlier today, Namco Bandai revealed another way the game will refine the online experience: background matchmaking.

Gundam Musou 3 can be set to have matching take place in the background. This means you'll be able to play the game's story mode while you're being matched up with other players for an online play session.

The updated online play system was just one of a number of features that were highlighted at the event. As detailed at Famitsu.com, Namco Bandai also announced paid download content. Gundam Musou 3 will, like its predecessor, offer weekly download content updates. These will include new missions, scenarios and even Mobile Suits. Two paid Mobile Suit downloads were announced: Gundam UC's Kshatriya and Gundam OO's Susanoo. Pricing and release time frame were not announced.

Namco Bandai shared a trailer that highlights many of the new features. You can view the trailer here:
