Actual I'm fairly certain Gundam Battle Assault is just Gundam: The
Battlemaster 2 with replaced character graphics (Heero replacing the wierd
chick in the original version) and a changed "story" since all of the
screenshots I've seen just show the Battlemaster 2 mobile suits.
AFAIK, The third Battlemaster game, the one with Gundam Wing mecha, is still
forthcoming.
