SRW Compact 2!
You knew it had to happen, and it did. Yet another game in the on-going hit simulation RPG series, Super Robot Wars! Super Robot Wars Compact 2: Episode 1 is the first of a 3-part game, which will serve as the main SRW series for the Wonder Swan. We have 3 screen shots and 1 piece of artwork from this game.
While most of the features in SRW Compact 2 have been present in previous incarnations of the series, it will be the first to have a Free Order Stage System, which allows you to play scenarios in any sequence that you wish to play them in, which will result in slightly different storylines depending on the order you tackle them.
Joining this is the Skill Coorinatated System, which will FINALLY make secondary abilities, such as Shield Blocking, After-Imaging, and Sword Blocking linked to the Skill level of your character, and not a fixed probability that was in all the previous games.
Taking a cue from the new PSX SRW game Super Robot Wars Alpha, SRW Compact 2 will feature cut scenes when each robot uses their special attacks. Since SRW Compact 2 is a 3 part series, Episode 2 will start right after Epsiode one, and you'll have the ability to carry over your save file to the next game as well.
The anime series that will be featued in SRW Compact 2 are as follows:
Mobile Suit Gundam
Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam
Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack
Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War In the Pocket
Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th Team
