Take this with a grain of salt, but it would seem that Gundam Extreme VS Force for PS Vita might be getting a western physical release, according to Play Asia:

My concern is that it seems odd for Bandai Namco to release a game in retail format so long after the initial digital release, but perhaps Play Asia scored a deal with them for distributing. At this point all we can do is wait and see what happens.

I question that, especially since the Vita is just plain dead in the west.

Well, it's a mixed bag:

-Western support from 3rd party developers, as well as Sony's own studios, has basically stopped. There do are exceptions, such as the Bard's Tale Remastered which was ported to PS Vita last month.
-Japanese and indies studios are the ones that keep releasing games on a regular basis, both in digital and retail formats. Games like Danganronpa V3, Ys VIII, Utawarerumono 3, Summon Night 6 have been released in both formats in recent months.
-Aside Limited Run Games, which has been bringing retail releases for PS Vita games ranging from indies to Bandai Namco's Ray Gigant, some studios are also making late releases of games previously only available in digital format int he west, such as Axiom Verge and Velocity 2X. Play Asia has also been making US version of some PS Vita games, which they are selling as exclusives. Fangamer and Signature Games are also part of this list.

Anyway, probably the most relevant case form the above is Ray Gigant, which did saw a PS Vita physical release a long time after its original digital-only release in the west. So, there do is some hope for it turn out to be truth. In this particular case, I'm inclined to think that maybe it will be Play Asia itself the one that will publish the physical release.

For those who missed it, the AGE-2 and Mudrock have been announced as DLC.

Age 2 is not a surprise, given that the Zeydra was just announced and that both Zeydra and Age 2 are in Maxi Boost.

Murdrock also makes sense given its the rival pilot in Zeonic Front because Gerhart Schmitzer and his custom Zaku I were announced pretty recently too. Usually it tends to be 2 units per series, Scramble Gundam being the exception of course.

Also for anyone who missed it, it looks like we'll be getting the White Dingos' GM Sniper II soon, since they added a Rise from the Ashes section to the in-game encyclopedia.

At this rate I'm expecting to see either Side Story End of Flash units from Encounters in Space with RX78-4/5 and Action Zaku or 0081 units with RX78-7 along with RX-81 or Efreet Nacht. Most of the main OYW games have been covered now aside from Blue Destiny, which could also come back, but the Pale Rider already meets those units...

Not only has the White Dingo Sniper II been revealed, but so has the fan-demanded Aegis Gundam.

I personally am looking forward to Aegis and Raider when they arrive.
It kind of confuses me how blatantly Bandai-Namco are being with DLC.
But I guess on the other hand you don't have to buy EVERYTHING though.
