Have you ever wondered what a virtual “Mobile Suit Gundam” world would be like? Well, you won’t have to wonder for long, because Bandai Namco has announced that it has just invested 15 billion yen ($130 million USD) to create their very own metaverse that’ll sport all of the Gundam units and characters you can dream of! …Probably!
This should really come as no surprise, honestly, considering the increased reliance on the online world as of recent years for entertainment, shopping, and so much more. Bandai Namco promises to bring users games, streaming video, live musical performances, and even aim to offer content similar to the physical aspects that Gundam-lovers rely on such as arcade game centers and local hobby shops. As such, they plan to incorporate a way to shop for your favorite Gunpla kits inside of the Metaverse and have them delivered to your home in a flash! Dang, the future really is here, huh!
So, what are your thoughts on the project Bandai Namco has planned to unleash onto the metaverse? Will you participate in this ambitious project, or are you wary of it? Hopefully we can learn more about the project soon!
