Super Robot Wars T Has The Highest Overseas Sales For The Series Yet; Trial Version Launches

On a recent episode of Umasugi Wave, Super Robot Wars Producer Takanobu Terada revealed that Super Robot Wars T’s Asian versions are selling very well, even more than the Japanese version. Producer Terada cited Taiwan, Hong Kong, and South Korea as the countries where the game is selling the most in Asia. He thanked the fans and added that Super Robot Wars T is the biggest overseas success in the franchise’s history. Needless to say, fans outside Asia are buying the Asian versions as well, contributing to the game’s success.

Umasugi Wave is Super Robot Wars‘ radio show, published every Tuesdays on Lantis’ YouTube channel. The Super Robot Wars main series has been receiving Asian releases with translations in English, Korean and Chinese starting Super Robot Wars V released in 2017. Super Robot Wars T is the third main game receiving the same treatment.

The English translation, the appealing series list, and the overall high quality of the game explain Super Robot Wars T‘s success. True, SRW T partly recycles certain animations from past games, but this is an understandable compromise so that nearly every mecha unit in the game has gorgeous animation. Moreover, through its story, characters, or voice acting, anyone can feel while playing it than an incredible amount of work was put into it. According to seiyuu Tomokazu Sugita, the game’s success is also thanks to the huge amount of “cool old guys” characters included in the game, and how even side-characters like the Eldora Team from Gun x Sword have a lot of lines.

Super Robot Wars V sold over 500,000 copies and won the 2018 Playstation Awards Gold Prize. Seeing Super Robot Wars T‘s performance only a month after launch, it’s highly possible it will surpass 500,000 copies as well.

Super Robot Wars T is available on PS4 and Switch. A demo is now available on the Asian PS Store. The demo is only available in Japanese on Switch.

Designer Hidetaka Tenjin commented his work on SRW T. Producer Terada also recently revealed abandoned ideas for a Super Robot Wars game project and hinted at what might be coming one day.

Super Robot Wars T Gets New Gameplay, Details; Medarot Joins Super Robot Wars X-Ω

During the February stream of the Super Robot Wars franchise, new details were revealed on Super Robot Wars T, with live gameplay of the PlayStation 4 version of the game.

The gameplay sequence starts on the intermission screen after Stage 3. By then, players will have God Gundam, Noble Gundam, Great Mazinger, Dann of Thursday, and OG mecha Tyranado. The Gespenst will already be available as well for those who pre-ordered the game.

Producer Terada explained some of the systems in the game. As already shown in the second PV, there’s no skill tree anymore, and players can buy any skill directly with Tac Points and make a pilot learn them.

We also saw the Tac Management menu, which lets you purchase one out of different bonuses at each “Grade”, by exchanging Tac Points. Grade 1, for example, lets you increase the number of slots in a specific Sub Order. Each Grade has a different Original character taking care of it. Grade 1 has Rami, Grade 2 has Meryl, and Grade 3 has a new OG character named Eimis. Just like Meryl during battles, Eimis rides the Cariacs, the airship carrying Tyranado’s weapons. The airship itself isn’t playable though, at least as far as we know for now.

Next, the Sub Order menu was shown. As already explained, in SRW T, even pilots who were deployed in the previous map can be given Sub Orders to. Like in past games, these lets you grind either experience, money, kill count or Tac Points. The new Special Order function was explained as well. Basically, every stage there’s some special condition to accomplish, and if you do, you’ll be able to use Special Order the following intermission. Special Order grants +5 to the kill count of the pilot you assigned it to.

Next, they showed some gameplay of Stage 4, which takes place on Mars. According to Terada, Domon is more rational and mature in SRW T and is currently on Mars following a request he accepted. Most units don’t have all their attacks yet so early in the game. Great Mazinger gets more as the game goes on. Same with Spike in the Swordfish II, who joins in Stage 4. It only has two attacks then but it’ll get more and more. Swordfish II has S rank in Air and Space, and Spike also has a “Cowboy” skill which is pretty cool. They didn’t explain what it does, but it’s probably a stat boost depending on his Morale.

Other tidbits include how Noble Gundam can use Repair now. The Gespenst as well. Another new OG character was shown too, called Amasaki, and he’s Saizo and Sagiri’s superior. “Amasaki” is also Rami’s family name, so they’re relatives. Amasaki is on the Cariacs airship with Meryl and Eimis.

Another important note is how they didn’t play each character/unit’s BGM during the gameplay, except for Saizo’s and Sagiri’s. You can find the stream below. The Super Robot Wars T gameplay sequence is from 7:23 to 26:50.

Lastly, mobile game Super Robot Wars Cross-Omega also added Medarot to its roster as a limited-time addition. A trailer for it was shown which you can find below. It’s the Medarot games specifically, instead of the anime, hence why the trailer had a Gameboy feel to it. Cross Omega Producer Oochi mentioned how they’re doing it because it’s the Medarot franchise’s 20th anniversary, and because they already did a collaboration event with Megaman, which is one of the inspirations for Medarot. Two new permanent additions for Cross Omega were announced as well: Mobile Suit Gundam Seed Astray and Evangelion Anima. It’s the first time Evangelion Anima appears in SRW.

New information and gameplay for upcoming mobile game Super Robot Wars DD were shown on stream as well, and as usual, they took a photo with everyone present on stream once it ended.

Super Robot Wars T will release in Japan on March 20 for PS4 and Switch. A Southeast Asia version with an English translation will be launching the same day. You can read more about Super Robot Wars T with our previous extensive coverage:

Super Robot Wars T English Second Trailer is Burning Red

Bandai Namco Southeast Asia released the English version for the second trailer of Super Robot Wars T.

The trailer was first uploaded on Bandai Namco’s official Facebook and there is no official upload on YouTube as of now, so the version at the end of this story is a re-upload.

As a reminder, here are the series included in Super Robot Wars T, with the series appearing for the first time in Super Robot Wars bolded at the end of the list:

  • Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam
  • Martian Successor Nadesico: The Prince of Darkness

The second trailer also introduces Super Robot Wars T‘s Original protagonists and mecha unit. The game’s systems are explained as well. We’ve got some official spellings for the Original characters and mecha names now too. I will be updating the previous stories and replacing the temporary name translations I’ve made with the official names as soon as possible.

The end of the trailer features the English version of JAM Project’s Tread on the Tiger’s Tail, Super Robot Wars T‘s theme song. Bandai Namco asked JAM Project to make a different version of the song for each region the game will be sold in, so there’s a Chinese version and a Korean version together with the English version. The song’s Japanese version is also available in all versions of the game, and Producer Terada already confirmed the Japanese version of the song plays during the game at a certain point, which is most probably the final boss.

New systems in Super Robot Wars T include being able to use pilots in Sub-Orders, even if you sortied them in the previous mission, and the Supporter Command system, where certain characters can activate special effects like increasing the amount of money acquired by all units for one turn.

We’ve been extensively covering Super Robot Wars T news since its announcement in November. We’ve translated multiple comments from the producers along with detailed information on the game. All of these are must-reads whether you’re used to playing Super Robot Wars games or are new to the mecha crossover franchise.
