Title: Super Robot Wars V
Release Date: Feburary 23rd, 2017 (JP, ASIA)
Platforms: Playstation 4, Playstation Vita,
Official Site: スーパーロボット大戦V
Pre-order Bonus: Too much! The most notable is the Grungust and Huckebein, SRW originals are making an appearance in the game as preorder bonuses.

Here we go again!

Titled V for Voyage, this is the latest Super Robot Wars game to featured licensed series. This is the 25th anniversary of the SRW series so this game includes a mix of series new and returning. It also includes a brand new Mazinger and original for the 2nd time in series history, the MazinEmperor G!

Sounds exciting but it's only in Japanese, isn't it?

Actually, no! This will be the first licensed SRW with an official English release. the Asia version of the game will have English text for people interested in playing the game! The quality of the translation probably isn't going to be the best but you will be able to play and enjoy the game even without knowing Japanese. Check out the Stage 1 video in the media section for what the English version of the game is like!

A lot of mecha games are getting English releases now too. Check out these recent titles if you're interested:

Gundam Breaker 3
Super Robot Wars OG Moon Dwellers
SD Gundam G Generation Genesis

There's a music edit mode!

You can insert your favorite tracks to play in the game. So if you prefer the vocal versions of the famous tracks and didn't buy the Premium Song edition from Japan, you can use your own!

Featured Series - I collapsed them into one umbrella but a lot of subseries are here like for Crossbone, etc




Media:
Super Robot Wars V PV1 (JP)
Super Robots Wars V PV2 (JP)
Super Robot Wars Demo Reel (English)
Super Robot Wars V Stage 1 (English)

There was Moon Dwellers last year. That's an Original Generations game. This is the first licensed SRW to get an English release.

The PS4 version is $59.99 at PlayAsia.

If you're talking about PSN, the HK store appears to be Chinese language only.

Evangelion

Nadesico
Cross Ange

Original Generation is all SRW original characters and mechs.
Mainline SRW is a mashup of licensed mecha properties.

I would assume so but I don't think it says so on the website.

OG is original banpresto characters only. It features all the protagonists of previous SRW games gathered into one universe and their own game. This one is a licensed SRW meaning it has mechs from various anime series like Gundam, Mazinger etc along with a small handful of original characters made for this game.

Gundam Breaker 3
SRW OG Moon Dwellers
SD Gundam G Generation Genesis

Guessing we're gonna get lots of "what wait this in English? I had no idea!"

Set up an account for the Singapore PlayStation store and get some Singapore PS store credit to buy the game. Or import the physical release from Play Asia:

I'm actually in China with a PS4 I bought in Japan, but it'll be easy enough to find a physical copy which I'd rather have. I'm just so excited that I wish I could play it right this minute.

Yamato is my everything, so of COURSE I am getting this. I wonder if in addition to the Yamato itself, you get other ships from the series at some point. Like Berger & his carrier fleet since they were allies in the Space Ark film (and his voice actor is the coolest anyway).

Crossbone, for god's sake better have Kincaido and X1. They've only shown Tobia and X3 so far, right?

Is there any reason not to get PS Vita version this time around? Given the length of the games, Vita is the only way I ever finished the prior ones.

Pretty much 0% for a US release. You can get the English Asian version though! So you can play it in English. Also the V is for Voyage.

We also learn that the game will prohibit screenshots both on PS4 and PS Vita, except some scenes. Video recording and broadcasting will be deactivated, while share play will be available only in limited parts of the game.

On the other hand, cross-save between the two platforms will be implemented, Remote Play will be supported, and even the pretty much discontinued PlayStation Vita TV will be supported.

The only reason I ordered the ps4 version was because remote play is enabled :P. Would've gone with the vita version otherwise.

So the only SRW game I've ever played was a fan translation of SRW OG Saga with the cowboy and robot ladies, and the Kaguya lady with the huge plot. Are all of these games like that? RPGs with lots of mechs and fanservice?

I really enjoyed the combo-based battle system and story from what I could make out.

I really dug it, but the translation was only partly finished and I had to use a guide to figure out a lot of items and menus. I'd be open to import this if it's more of the same.

I have the feeling including Macross in this would've prevented it from being released in SEA, English localization or not.

Answering my own questions: Kincaido is in as a pilot, so probably X1 is in. As for Yamato, the Yamato itself is the only ship from the show in, though, which is fine I guess.

All in all I like this pilot roster a lot. Mikazuki would've been the best, though.

Endless Frontier is a bit different. That game is an RPG with combos and the like. The main Super Robot Wars games are actually strategy titles like Final Fantasy Tactics or Ogre Battle.

These are grid based strategy games with LOTS of screens of dialogue in between.

I guess if/when V-2 comes around they will add more of the old regulars back in. I am missing Godmars and Gunbuster but Yamato looks like fun. Always up for anything ZZ too.
