Mobile Suit Gundam - Gundam VS Gundam Next Plus Impressions part 8

Mobile Suite Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket

Gundam Alex
 Almost identical to its Extreme Vs counterpart, except that now he has an assist. Eh, I dunno, while I like the Alex's design, I always felt he was a tad to weak in Extreme Vs, and it's no exception here.

NEW Kampfer
 I don't usually like long-range only units, but this one... is really neat. It has a shotgun, a bazooka, a sort of grenade... I like it. It also has a whip with bombs? One time use only, but its quite strong. It also has a slashing dash that can be followed up with a bazooka blast or a shotgun shot. Its biggest short-coming lies on its mobility, which is really, really terrible, both boosting or dashing. Overall, I really like it. It looks badass, and has interesting gameplay, and no suit really takes its place in Extreme Vs, this one really needs to return!

Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory

Gundam Dendobrium Stamen
 Almost exactly like the Extreme Vs version, however, I think that the cable sub-weapon had an ammo gouge in Extreme Vs? Well, it doesn't here, you can use it indefinitely!

Gundam Physalis
 Bummer, it's missing a bunch of tools from Extreme Vs, and the Beam saber enhancer works differently, instead of being a sub-weapon, it now charges itself after a couple seconds of not using it. It does have better mobility. For long range, besides the nuke, it only has a very weak minigun and a 4 ammo assist-cannon based attack. Fairly lame.

NEW Gundam Zephyrantes / Gundam Zephyrantes Full Vernian
 The Zephyrantes is a very interesting case, not only is it different from Extreme Vs, but it's entirely unique among the other suits. How? It starts as a 1000 cost unit(Zephyrantes) and when it respawns, it does so as a 2000 cost unit, Full Vernian Zephyrantes(It has been switched back to this format in Maxi Boost). Zephyrantes has a very basic 1000 cost unit load out, a machine gun, the head machine guns, a beam sub-weapon and average melee. Once it enter Full Vernian, it switches the machine gun for a beam rifle, gets better melee, better stats and a new charge weapon and new special melee attack. It's an interesting unit, but both movesets are not very interesting.

Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team

Gouf Custom
 Exactly the same as in Extreme Vs, except that it has an assist attack now.
