  • Excerpt: Giant robots, especially those piloted by humans, have been an anime staple for decades. These giant robots are often referred to as mecha or mechs. Even the most casual anime fan can effortlessly name at least a half dozen anime series that involve mecha. As expected, video games have followed suit in the trend and there have been a decent amount of mecha-based Japanese RPGs.

  • Excerpt: In the past, we have seen Bandai release a large collection of both action and fighting games based on the Gundam universe. However, in February of 2006, Bandai released the first Gundam RPG with MS Saga: A New Dawn . MS Saga: A New Dawn follows a young boy, Tristan, living in an orphanage. However, one day his life was completely changed when a group of black Mobile Suits came upon the orphanage and burned it to the ground.

  • Excerpt: In normal conversation, “MS” refers to a degenerative disease . Verily, one’s body starts out functioning fine as it ever has, but steadily loses the strength and other qualities it once had. How ironic that a process so similar would be the biggest disappointment in a game called MS Saga . The game starts out as well as would be expected, with a decent opening anime, quality introduction to the story and two of its characters, and easy opening play.

  • Excerpt: Several years after the Great Fall (a calamity that wiped out the majority of the planet's population), the Dark Alliance is attacking cities and generally causing havoc. As the young and spunky amnesiac orphan, Tristan, you're initial journey to avenge the destruction of your home and friends at their hands soon turns into a world-spanning adventure (set on an alternate-universe Earth) where you'll have to use the enemy's technology against them in order to save...

MS Saga: A New Dawn Review

GameSpot
27 February 2006
  • Summary: MS Saga looks and feels dated, but it makes good use of the license and manages to deliver a decent--if unremarkable--role-playing experience.
  • Pros: Loads of mobile suits and customization options, Simple but effective battle system, It's an RPG in which money is actually useful
  • Cons: Constant random encounters are frustrating, Dated graphics, Quest design requires a lot of backtracking, which artificially lengthens the game, Lame, forgettable music

MS Saga: A New Dawn

Playstation Illustrated
3 February 2006
  • Excerpt: Released as Gundam: True Odyssey in Japan, MS Saga: A New Dawn is the latest game in the Gundam series. MS Saga ’s story doesn’t take place in any particular Gundam timeline. Rather, it is a completely original story that combines all of the various mobile suit designs into one universe. Unfortunately, this branching out is about as ambitious as the game gets, relying instead on a deep combat system and the roots of old school RPGs to hold it up.
