Gunpla, short for “Gundam Plastic models” or “Gundam Plamo,” refers to model kits created by Bandai that depict the mecha machinery and characters from the fictional Gundam series.

The term comes from the phrase “Gundam plastic model” because these kits are primarily made of plastic.

These kits gained popularity among mecha anime fans and model enthusiasts in Japan and neighboring Asian countries starting in the 1980s. In the 1990s, Gundam modeling became more widespread in North America and Europe through television and manga.

In Gundam Breaker 4, players can now wield two different weapons, enabling them to create unique combos as they search for the best parts to build their perfect Gunpla.

Players can access a robust mecha garage between battles to customize their creations with new parts, paint, decals, and weathering.

Once players have finished building their Gundam, they can bring it into a wide variety of offline and online missions. These missions range from taking down bosses to facing off against hordes of enemy mecha, offering opportunities to acquire new parts and equip new skills.

A standout feature unique to Gundam Breaker 4 is the introduction of diorama mode. Here, players can construct elaborate scenarios using a variety of backgrounds, environmental elements, and special effects. They can then pose their creations in highly articulate models to capture the perfect scene.
