Dreamcast Super Robot Taisen Alpha Re-Emerges

What game unites Heero Yui, Shinji Ikari and Rick Hunter? Super Robot Taisen, of course. This unique series has been one of the most popular strategy games in Japan these past years, and one of its latest installment, Super Robot Taisen Alpha, released in last May on the PS, has sold close to 700,000 copies. Super Robot Taisen Alpha introduced a number of new robots and characters, from Macross (Robotech), Macross Plus, Turn A Gundam, and the Evangelion movies. Most importantly, it was the series' first attempt to use a 3-D isometric map.

Originally, a Dreamcast version of the game was supposed to be released around the same time as the PS version, but the numerous delays and the lack of news and media for the game seemed to be hinting at a possible cancellation... until today. Banpresto has finally announced a release date and some new details about the game. The graphics will be entirely re-modeled in 3D polygons, which will allow the camera moves a decent isometric strategy game deserves. The game will also feature some new ending routes, and the units will have new combined attacks. Lastly, the DC port will also enable network use.

Until Super Robot Taisen Alpha For Dreamcast gets released this July for 6,800 yen, we have some pictures from the PlayStation version; 120 new screen shots are available along with the Japanese packaging.
