New Super Robot Taisen Game Announced!

Super Robot Taisen games come and go every year, and with the series having around 20 titles now, it is no surprise to see Banpresto announce a new SRT game. Super Robot Taisen has the unique concept of a simulation RPG using characters and robots both from older famous or and more recent anime series. Tentatively titled Super Robot Taisen Alpha Gaiden, the PlayStation game is scheduled for a March 2001 release for the rather expensive price of 6,980 yen. The game will feature characters/robots from the following series:

  • Choujuukishin Dancougar (Super Bestial God Dancougar)
  • Kidou Senshi Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory (Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory)
  • Kidou Senshi Z Gundam (Mobile Suit Z Gundam)
  • Kidou Senshi Gundam ZZ (Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ)
  • Kidou Senshi Gundam Gyakushuu no Char (Mobile Suit Gundam: Char's Counterattack)
  • Kidou Senshi V Gundam (Mobile Suit V Gundam)
  • Shin Kidou Senki Gundam W Endless Waltz (New Mobile War Record Gundam W: Endless Waltz)
  • Great Mazinger
  • Mazinger series (movies)
  • Getter Robot
  • Getter Robot G
  • Shin Getter Robot
  • Muteki Koujin Daitan 3 (The Invincible Daitan 3)
  • Choudenshi Robot Combattler V (Super Electric Robot Combattler V)
  • Choudenshi Machine Voltus V (Super Electric Machine Voltus V)
  • Choujikuu Yousai Macross (Super Dimentional Fortress Macross)
  • Choujikuu Yousai Macross - Ai: oboeteimasu ka (Super Dimentional Fortress Macross: Do you remember love?)
  • Macross Plus
  • Yuusha Raideen (The Hero Raideen)
  • Mazinger Z

As well as some new appearances in the Super Robot Taisen saga:

  • Kidou Shinseiki Gundam X (Mobile New Century Gundam X)
  • Sentou Mecha Xabungle (Battle Mecha Xabungle)
  • Turn A Gundam
  • Ginga Senfuu Braiger

Note the appearance of Turn a Gundam, the latest Gundam series, and Xabungle, considered a classic. The new appearances of Super Robot Taisen Alpha, such as the characters of the Macross (Robotech) series, are coming back in this new installment! Some others series such as Giant Robot, Gunbuster or Evangelion are seemingly missing from this new game, though.
