Rumors of Level-5's involvement in a Gundam AGE game surfaced in last week's edition of the Japanese manga magazine CoroCoro Comic, but remained unconfirmed up until today when Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino appeared on stage at the Gundam AGE press conference in Japan to pledge the studio's allegiance toNamco'sspin-off mechfranchise. Hino also confirmed he will personally be taking up a bulk of the writing and plotting for the series in whole,which is slated to get the full transmedia treatment in manga, anime, toy lines and other games.
Level-5''s Gundam AGE RPG has not beenpinned down to any one region, system or release date. This means there's a chance western Gundam fans might still see the title on retail shelves outside of Japan, or at least have some time to save up for the hefty importing costs.
