Maybe they wanted to 'fix it' like they did with Seed Destiny? Both shows were made by the same people after all, so maybe that's what they're going for here.

13 mins of Calvina's route's gameplay. Quick, someone translate this NOW! lol

Note: the Japanese release date is next friday.

I love Bellzelute, the more flashy updated attacks look awesome. Excuse me, I'm having a fanboy moment seeing all the attacks from SRW J updated. O.O I'm just happy to see Bellz has the same attacks for its game. They go through each attack just to make sure you know they are all there. Of interesting note is that spirits of the pilots don't seem the same. Tenia (the red head) didn't have accel in SRW J. I'll be interested in seeing what the powerbuff girls' spirit groups are.

So happy we got a little sneak peak at Calvina's Route. Totally going to pick her route split, just like I pick her in SRW J. Her theme songs are awesome and its nice to here the update versions of the songs.

Another small note: In SRW J Toya's first mission was on earth while the first mission of Calvina's route is in space. It seems they are sticking to that in the game as well.

So the Japanese version comes out this Friday and, of course, some people got the game early.

Calvina Theme (Revenger):

All of Granteed's attacks (That last ones a little bit of overkill lol)

All of Bellzelute Brigandi's attacks:

Note: this guy is uploading the attacks of a lot of mechs in the game. Check out the updated visuals for your favorite mechs and drool.

Apparently 47 missions in total (not counting the replay value of split routes). After the first prologue mission, you get a 9 missions long route split between Touya and Calvina. So worry not, White Lynx fans, best girl is getting plenty of love. Coincidently, the first mission of her route is titled "White Lynx".

this trend of them just doing english subtitles for asian versions instead of a full localization is really working out, bit on gundam breaker 3 cause of that. Also supposedly there's no macross this time cause rights to macross outside of japan is a huge clusterfuck they don't want to deal with. I wonder how the translations will be for the anime series that never had  formal english localizations

The game releasing Friday is an OG game so there are no mechs from animes in it. SRW V won't be released till next year.

Licensing issues prevent them from releasing SRW outside of the Asian market but the English sub version will be Asian Market only so its a none issue. Macross was likely dropped because Macross Frontier has been done to death already and they aren't ready to move on to Macross Delta (the shows not done airing yet). Also, SRW V has a lot of classic mecha like Chars Counterattack and Zeta, I feel like this is on purpose to celebrate the anniversary with some returning classic shows.

Because of those licensing issues, we are never going to see an English localization for western markets but thankfully Asian markets have become profitable enough for them to release english subs. Thank Asian mecha fans for that.

Thats not even the most over the top attack in the game. LOL But if you love Gespents (and you should), this game will be great for you.

Also, edit to post above. MD has 47 missions and the first route split is 9 missions long.

Mind's officially blown!

Seeing as I managed to lose my game save for SRWJ a while back, I never did get to see how it ended.  I'll just have to make up for it with this.  :)

Except that she's not a subpilot for Hawken. She's just locked to the Gespy Phantom, which is manageable since it leads to shenanigans like this.

Code: [Select]
The joke is that Aschen is OG Saga's version of Lamia, down to the W-Series call sign, and I think they even share the same voice actress. So technically she's as much of a subpilot for herself as she is for Hawken.

I don't understand, why is that Mysogynistic? SRW OG has plenty of female pilots that kickass. Also, if Aschen shares the same voice actress as Lamia then that explains why there is an achivements for having Lamia pilot Gespent Phantom.

Lately, there's been a trend of making OG characters that consist of a male pilot and a female subpilot (or in mechanical terms the guy you upgrade and has narrative importance, versus an SP Battery with occasional boob jiggle). While there are exceptions, most of those date back to either Alpha or the early GBA era SRWs when OG characters started actively having their own plot. SRW Z1 was the last time the OG series really had a female lead and her entire shtick was getting the crap beaten out of her both emotionally and physically to the point of going Tales of Symphonia's Collette while her plot macguffin was eating her alive (meanwhile, the male protagonist's issue was from his own anger backlashing on him, and he was very prone to getting angry and smashing things). And of the few earlier female leads that had existed, like Kusuha, have been mechanically nerfed/backseatted by the plot for their male counterparts/or just flat out kidnapped and brainwashed.

And I could go on but I'm belaboring the point, which is that with Moon Dwellers, the SRW series has finally given players a route with an honest to god female lead option for the first time since 2008 with Z1 (and only because its partially based upon SRW J, a game that was released in 2005).

Though to be fair, the entire Super Robot genre is heavily male dominated. There have been very few Super Robot anime/OVAs that had females in any sort of lead position that weren't also garbage fires like Cross Ange was (which unsurprisingly, got totally hijacked by one of the show's two male characters; the other being the villain), while the vast majority of the genre is lucky to even see a female character with any significance beyond 'designated love interest' and/or 'the Pink Ranger'. Which unfortunately means that SRW's tendency to copy genre tropes and whatnot also tend to copy this attitude as well.
