Super Robot Wars 20th Anniversary Edition is rumored to be a PS3 exclusive and may be announced at TGS 2010.
I don't mind Gundam games, but I wonder if this is even any good. I've never played a Super robot wars game before. I guess it being exclusive to a platform is a good sign, hopefully it looks good and has a lot of effort put into development.
Wait, isnt it this game?
. Both are different titles but same genre; an SRPG + robot themes. I'm sure this new Super Robot Wars title is different with Another Century Episode R.
it's like a strategy rpg gundamn with crazy ass combos lol.
Another century code is a serie of action games . It's a (surprisingly very good) crossover serie mixing up all the great mecha franchises . SR taisen is a serie of tactical rpg
@1.1 - That one is the new PS3 exclusive from FromSoftware, I guess it is similar, but the FromSoftware one has mechs from Code Geass in it as well, so I suspect it will be better.
Most of the Super Robot Wars games from NES to PS1 had English patches, don't know about the PS2 ones. But I have been waiting for this news for a year already. Like Final Fantasy, Tekken, Metal Gear Solid, etc. the main SRW series are the staple of PlayStation since PS1 and it is almost assured that PS3 will be having this. Its just a matter of time in 2011. Hope it also has PS Move support. Just like Another Century Episode R this is an import game for me. I finished the SRW games relying heavily on my little Nihongo knowledge and Gamefaqs of course. Like some of us here there is an elite army SRW game translators that has covered this series through the years so game guides & forums will never be a problem with this kinda of game. English version is almost impossible ....but then again who knows ...
. If anyone familiar with Japanese robot theme kinda stories in anime / manga, but never played Super Robot Wars before, just think of it like a huge and awesome crossover between them. Kinda like Gundam + Evangelion + Voltes V + Mazzinger + Macross + Eureka 7 + Code Geass + etc. One of it's interesting point of this series is, their stories intertwined each other. It's amusing to see Lelouch interact with Amuro Ray, Shinji Ikari, & others / how Nu Gundam supports Mazzinger defeating the Angel Ramiel. But unfortunately... Just like any previous Super Robot Wars titles, which is only in Japanese... There's a 0,1% chances of this coming in English......... >_> Correct me if I'm wrong, but... The only English release of Super Robot Wars, is the spin-off Endless Frontier for Nintendo DS, localized by ATLUS.
Well, Lets hope Atlus picks this up then, with the recent success with publishing PS3 Exclusive Demon's Souls and 3D Dot Heroes, it looks like it could have a chance. We should request it when they post again in the ps blog.
we wont see it anytime soon , even with atlus involved . Too many licenses involved . Even big companies like capcom struggled with tatsunoko rights , and this is a far worse situation
Yeah, I've never played one in english and I am very grateful to the people that put out the translations cause its a real pain trying to upgrade and equip units not understanding what your supposed to do. I doubt the younger generation would appreciate the old school giant robots. It also takes hours to finish off a boss cause they are super tough and they mostly regenerate. God I miss playing it.
yep it's a lost cause now go back practise your kanjis ! this serie is just a mecha fan cross over dream
bring this to america. jrpg and mech fans want this cause i know i do lol.
Ah bugger. I thought it was ...
Its going to be awesome! and they should try bringing original generations (NOT the BASTARD DS games) im talking OG proper.
please please PLEASE let this be true ! I want my PS3 SRW fix right NOW ! :'( I have been waiting for this game for far too long it's been 3 years now for Gods sake ! DO IT BANPRESTO !
Not worth any publishers trouble to publish anything like this outside of JP, with all the licenses required, only to see a poor return. Won't see this, or Century R outside of Asia.
But then there's nothing - nothing - stopping anyone from importing it. Time for some of us to learn some basic Japanese. And by some of us I mean me.
Yep I'd love to play it. But that'd mean learning Japanese. Then again, I do want to learn Japanese, and being forced into it through video games would probably be a very good, and enjoyable means of doing so. *shrugs* Maybe I'll go for it, then again the menus of mech games are generally pretty damn complex, might be a bit too much.
This is another game we prolly won't get so it looks I have to keep learning Japanese.
All I need now are screen shots, a trailer w/gameplay, and some tissues...
will it come to the u.s.?
This would be sweet, the Super Robot Taisen games on DS were awesome. I can only imagine a PS3 outing. Color me excited.
