OverviewMacross Ultimate Frontier
is the sequel of Macross Ace Frontier
, which itself is derived from the Gundam Battle
series by developer Artdink. While Ace Frontier
merely covered the six most well-known series in the Macross franchise, Ultimate Frontier
delves into spin-offs and side-stories, including the ill-received Macross II
(which receives its first video game representation in over 15 years). Several new subsystems are added in this game, including Support Characters and Antii-Missile attacks.

A third character that is created at the start of the game, the Support Character holds the player's skills. All pilots can become Support Characters, and some characters that cannot become pilots normally (such as Lynn Minmay) can also serve as Support characters.
A new type of skill that is somewhat similar to the skill system of Gundam Battle Universe
. These skills are constantly active.
A system that allows the player's machine to automatically target and shoot down enemy missiles. This new ability is restricted by the "Anti" gauge.
- Real Flight.
A new type of control option; when in Fighter Mode, the unit's controls resemble that of a flight sim.
-Special equipment such as FAST packs are equipped onto preexisting units, as opposed to the combined unit becoming a separate unit of its own. The armor can be detached with sufficient damage or manually.
-Custom Soundtracks are introduced.
-A new shop system is introduced, which allows players to unlock features easier (they can still be unlocked by earning high ranks in missions).
