A new Gundam video game is being developed. Scheduled for release in 2015, Bandai Namco Games teased the title at the 2014 Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia (SCEJA) press conference.

Bandai Namco Games announced the title last year.

But the game's trailer is the first time that the media got a glimpse of it. Before the teaser was shown, the developer's spokesperson said that the game's theme would be "all Gundam."

The trailer opens with a close up of the Gundam from the original Mobile Suit: Gundam series. After a few seconds, the camera pans back and many of the meta-series' iconic robots descend onscreen.

Other than that, the trailer didn't reveal many details about the game.

Critics have given Gundam games mixed reviews; Extreme vs. Full Boost is a recent title that reviewers and fans have praised.

But critics panned games like Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire and Dynasty Warriors: Gundam--both of the latter were released in America.

Extreme vs. Full Boost, however, was never released in the United States.

And Bandai Namco Games hasn't said anything about the upcoming 2015 game on the North American portion of their website. Hence, the developers haven't given any indication that the game will hit American shelves.

But, whether or not the title will be released in the United States, fans of the popular anime can still take advantage of the Playstation 4 being region-free.

Media and consumers still don't know much about the upcoming 2015 game. And Bandai hasn't revealed what it will be titled.
