January 8, 2007 - http://ps3.ign.com/objects/873/873402.html made its surprise debut just weeks ago, but it's already become one of the few PS3 games in Japan with a solid release date. A retailer blog reveals today that Bandai Namco Games has put the game on a fast track for Japanese release on March 1.

In case you weren't paying attention over the holidays, here's what all the fuss is about. Gundam Musou combines the mechs and characters of Gundam with the kill all mechanics of Koei's Shin Sangoku Musou series. The latter is known internationally as Dynasty Warriors. In fact, Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force is heading up development on Gundam Musou.

Dynasty Warriors is one of Japan's biggest series. Gundam is... well, it's Gundam! With a release hot on the heels of VF5's 2/8 Japanese release, the PS3 software situation looks like it will be improving in a big way shortly.
