For this week’s Mecha Fridays, we take a look a the upcoming downloadable contents for Gundam Breaker 3.
Gundam Breaker 3 has been around for some time and Bandai Namco has promised a series of DLCs. It was said that the content size would be almost equivalent that of an entire game. Each of the DLC will include a new set of mobile suits, weapons parts and other accessories, plus a whole new chapter to play.
The first DLC was released last June for free and it features modeled mobile suits exclusive for the game (namely the Hyaku Shiki J and break Dias), however you need to pay up for the succeeding DLCs, and a season pass called Break Pass will be available at a discounted price that contains all of the DLCs. No details on how much the season pass and individual DLCs will cost, but in Japan the season pass will be at 5,000 Yen and each DLC will be at 1,000 Yen except for the final DLC which is at 1,500 Yen. The second DLC will be available on October 25 for Region 3 users.
Below are the list of upcoming DLCs:

Colored by the desires and ambitions of the people, the new missions are played by users all over the world. But within it, fighters witness an unidentified enemy mecha.
