Gundam Musou site update
The official site updated their Game System page (with several sub-sections and movies), MS page, and Screenshot page.
Gundam Musou commemorative test play meeting
Game Watch,, ITmedia +D Games,, and covered a press event held by Bandai Namco, Koei, and Sony for Gundam Musou. Bigwigs appearing were Bandai Namco Holdings president Takeo Takasu, Koei co-founder Keiko Erikawa, and Sony Computer Entertainment president Ken Kutaragi. Erikawa commented that the title represents for Koei the first collaboration with another company in its 29-year history. She went on to say she wanted the game to sell 2 million copies though Bandai Namco's more modest Shin Unozawa says they're looking to have worldwide sales of 1 million, an achievement that would still make Gundam Musou notable even amongst the best-selling Gundam games. As that implies, Kutaragi is quoted in the Dengeki article as saying "Because Gundam is a work that has fans worldwide, I want to release it overseas quickly."

Side note: Reports that the game has 2 player cooperative play may have been based on the split-screen pics without further context. An earlier Gpara article details the Versus Mode as having 3 parts: 1-on-1 versus battles, a competitive portion where you play to see who can kill the most enemy units, and a Musou Match, wherein you fight 1-on-1 after upgrading your MS with items.

To be constructed of iron, the monument is said to have a 135 million yen price tag and to be built in Wakamatsu Park near the JR Shinnagata station in Spring of 2008.
