Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Maxi Boost is an arcade game and updated version of Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs. Full Boost, released on March 6, 2014. Much like Full Boost, the game will introduce both new suits and characters as well as new game mechanics such as a revamped EX Mode and changes to forms for certain units. The theme song is Rave-up Tonight by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It is later followed up by a portable spinoff, Extreme Vs. Force and an update in Maxi Boost ON.
One of the new gameplay additions is the EX Overdrive, replacing the Assault and Blast Bursts altogether while acting as a sort of second EX Mode. This mechanic comes in two types; S-Drive and F-Drive, the former which drastically increases weapon reloading and firing speeds and the latter which renders melee attacks unblockable. These can be activated once the EX Overdrive gauge is filled, which increases when the player takes damage. In addition, navigators can now be chosen in VS battles and will comment on your performance during battle. Lastly, the 1000 cost units will be upgraded to 1500 cost, except for the Arios which was bumped to 2500 cost. Similar to Full Boost, the visuals in Maxi Boost have been changed from its predecessor, now giving the mobile suits a metallic shader. Electricity and sparks also flare about when the unit's armor is at critical level.
