Not gonna lie, I've never played with a ship this much in a SRW, and I've been playing the series since SRW EX.

It's seriously powerful as a unit. It's actually a little ridiculous.

Also the ship's ExAct (don't remember how it's called) is really broken, straight up give another unit an extra action. I just played 5 stages so far and it's been really easy. Hopefully the difficulty ramps up later.

I did, I actually tend to use ships if only because they're usually tanks with a load of useful seishin if you level them up properly.

But right now, the Yamato is pretty awesome. Countering everything, stocking up on Ex points on your defensive turn and then unleashing a flurry of multiple actions on your offensive turn feels really good. It feels so good I almost feel bad for breaking the (early) game.

One thing I haven't mentioned but that is a pretty big deal for me is the ability to use seishin during your defensive turn. We knew about it, but I can see it really changing the way you use these abilities.

I'm on the fix about it. It worked in NEO because seishins had to be leveled up. You had powered down versions of seishins until near the end of the game.

I wasn't going to keep my preorder because money is sorta tight by choice but I ended up buying the Premium Edition at Sofmap.

It's an early birthday present and it's not that bad since I'm going to sell my WiiU games.

Don't attack me WiiUGAF, I bought the games prior to getting the console but I never ended up buying a WiiU (lack of price drop for starters) and Nintendo is moving on with switch.

Crayon Shinchan and Godzilla have already been in SRW.

This made me realize WiiU is the first Nintendo home console ever to not get a SRW.

Got my copy today by mail. Surprised that it actually came on release date since they usually arrive a day later. Can't wait to get off work and play it tonight.

Question: Is Vangrey a Real or Super robot? Does it have high armor or mobility? From the trailers, it looks like a Real but has the bulk of a Super. It would be nice if it's a Super type.

I just noticed that now! You know your console did poorly without a SRW release.

Even the 360 got a SRW (updated GC port but whatever lol).

I took the premium version out for a spin, I panicked originally because I thought lack of custom music. But that's not the case.

Anyway I don't regret buying the premium version but the songs used are from the original TV series airing / theatrical / ova version.

In Z3 I shoved in the original full vocal tracks. Lol

SRW is so much better with the actual music, and Time to Come is from SRW4 super famicom. Which is a nice touch, even though I did like the vocal versions.

I need to put in the Evangelion gainax era music in sometime and maybe the original 70s Yamato theme.

Oh right, F91 music for Crossbone, "The Time I'm Seeing You" is really great. Iirc Impact used it for F91.

And of course Z Toki wo Koete, and why not the Neil Sedaka originals too.

For Banpresto originals I just gave them Susumu Hirasawa music from Paprika and Berserk. Lol

Vangrey only looks like a super because it's designed by the guy who made Linebarrel. It's a real through and through. In fact, it's the first real since Z1 that upgrades into another real. Revlius turned into Solvrius Rex, Librasta gave you a choice and Riot B eventually turned into Odyssea. Exbein to Exexbein is essentially just a weapons pack.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the tip. The last mainline I played was Z2 and went with Librasta B to keep him Real.

Though after playing OG Moon Dwellers, I'm loving the OG Supers and would like to see more. Can't wait to get Grungust in my team.

Yeah it's pretty much the same https://youtu.be/HzXR8tnnKSM?t=29s

It's more than just Yamato being really good, Okita is an amazing captain. Starting the game with max level leadership ability along with this unique skill, it's a gigantic buff to your entire team this early on in the game.

The man is Bright Noa of Alpha 1. Ship captain that does everything. Also in one of the early stages where you need to have a single unit kill 4 enemies for the SR point, obviously stacked in Yamato's favor so you get that line of "We this man leading us...".

Anywho it's pretty fun so far.

Broke down and bought this today. Should arrive between the 3rd to the 21 ha. Not going to be able to play it till after persona though. Got it today cause income tax came in and wanted to buy something but knew I wasnt going play it till way later. Knew almost all other games will probably drop in price by the time I would play it but there was no way in hell srwV probably would so why not. Will be my first SRW. Watched majority of the shows in this one. Really enjoyed excited I will finally be able to play the series.

I made a compilation of weird series choices some time ago, since then they also have had Godzilla and now Yamato, plus the Hello Kitty april's fools joke.

I think it's safe to say all bets are off, anything is possible!

I'm getting the game next month, probably, but to those of you who are playing: are there any combination attacks between Ange units? Like Villkiss and Enryugo, for instance?

Been hoping for something like that since they revealed Ange would be in it, because then I'd be able to use both S.Freedom/IJ and Villkiss/Enryugo and blow stuff up with my ~mecha OTPs~.

I don't know if there are any descriptions aside from the one in game. Most of them will provide TAC, Money, and a part so they're all worth it. It'll just be a matter of whether or not you want to see a specific story or set of characters.

Sorry for the slight detail but I love that movie.

I assume they'll be remaking the second series rather than the movie, though.

The Yamato is insane. It has some kind of EN Regen with an impenetrable shield and never misses. Not to mention the damage.

I think the main pilot is at Level 10 just to discourage you from making it hound all the EXP. Cause this thing can probably solo the game if the early chapters are any indication.

I wouldn't have wanted it in, but did anybody expect otherwise? SRW usually is very faithful to the series in the game.

Is the ship the only playable unit you get for Yamato? I'm only asking because maybe that's why it's so over powered? That's just a guess I'm making but I'm probably wrong anyway. I also never watched Yamato so I have no idea about it.

Dunno yet but considering it's a mothership and a key unit in this, it's not a surprise it's so strong, lol.

I just got to the part ZZ shows up.

The Double Beam Rifle is such a cool pose for a simple beam rifle shot, lol

It's out in English already; there's tons of youtube videos already posted. As far as I can tell after playing through like 7 chapters the translation is pretty good, everything makes perfect sense but it feels a little literal. There's also no "leftover" Japanese as far as I can tell, the whole UI was translated, and there's no really weird name/attack or mecha translations either.

That's good, at least. Should have let the Project X Zone editors give the script a pass, heh. They have complete and utter disregard for the original Japanese, but who cares when it's that fun.
