Is Gundam Evolution coming to PlayStation? The game made an outsized splash online when a teaser trailer drew comparisons to Overwatch, and now players are curious if they'll be able to play the class-based shooter on their console of choice.

Gundam Evolution is still quite a ways away from full release, but here's what we know about the game's release plans so far.

Is Gundam Evolution Coming to PlayStation?

In Gundam Evolution, two teams of six players each fight over objective points. Each player controls a different famous mobile suit from the Mobile Suit Gundam universe, and each suit has its own set of abilities. The game's design similarities to Overwatch extend beyond the mechanics, as even the in-game HUD bears a strong resemblance to Overwatch.

For now, Gundam Evolution is only scheduled to be released in Japan, and even there the release will be limited to PC. Bandai Namco has not announced plans to bring the game west, or to port it to other consoles, but as the game isn't set for release until next year, things could change. A closed PC beta test will take place Aug. 8-9 in Japan, and the full release will be free-to-play. As Gundam Evolution is a live service game, expanding to new platforms seems a natural fit, but we'll have to wait for official word from Bandai Namco.
