Released on 30th September by Bandai Namco Games, Gundam Area Wars is an iPhone / iPad app which allows you to participate in mobile suit battles in the real world with the help of google maps and your phones camera and gyro. A level map is generated based on your current location, and from here you move your suit around and battle enemies one at a time in either automated or manual mode.

As well as the standard battle mode, an augmented reality mode is also available, seeing a Zaku 1 towering over me in my own living room was pretty nuts! If that wasn’t enough, you can collect digital figurines and bring them into the real world using printed out AR markers.

Currently it’s only available through the Japanese iTunes store, it’s free though(with in app purchases of extra missions also available) Minimal Japanese understanding is required to play, so give it a go!
