Gundam uses the same KDDI system as all the other Capcom games but the other games seem to require something extra that this one doesn't (likely because this is a Bandai game unlike all the others which were both developed and published by Capcom). Shu and I tested some other games and they don't send any data after dialing a connection. It's like they're looking for some sort of extra configuration. They also look for some sort of VMU "NET" file before connecting. Although it does let you proceed without it. In any case, extra research will be needed.

No, they're not cross-compatible.
