While Gundam Versus just came out in the West, it’s been out for a while now in Japan, with Bandai Namco continually adding new mobile suites as downloadable content. Today, the company announced that two more mobile suits would be coming to the game in Japan: the Alvaaron And Buster Gundam.

Originally hailing from Mobile Suit Gundam oo, the gold-colored GNMS-XCVII Alvaaron makes the transition over to Gundam Versus complete with its pilot Alejandro Corner. Additionally, it seems that the suit can also dock with the GNMA-XCVII Alvatore to transform into a fearsome mobile armor.

The GAT-X103 Buster Gundam, on the other hand, comes from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED where it’s part of the Earth Alliance’s G-Project. This artillery focused Gundam has enough firepower to rival that of a battleship of that era, and is piloted by Dearka Elsman.

Both of these will be available for purchase in Japan on October 17 for only ¥602 plus tax each. No word yet on whether or not these will be made available to the rest of the world. In the meantime, check out some screenshots of both mobile suits in the gallery below.
