Super Robot Super Update!
01.17.07 - 2:18 AM

One of Japan's best kept secrets was blown open when Atlus localized one of the games in Banpresto's long-running series. Well, actually, they localized two: the games went hand in hand, despite a discrepancy in their original releases (2002 vs. 2005).

I (Patrick) went ahead and reviewed both of these games: Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation and Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2. The latter of these two has also been reviewed by reader Dennis. If you want the short version of the review, read mine. For a lengthy, detailed approach, check on his.

Dennis and I also tag-teamed a swarm of Super Robot Taisen soundtracks to help demonstrate the far-reaching grasp of this series in Japan. The scary thing: this only covers about half of all soundtracks in the series, not even counting drama albums. Here's what we've reviewed in the music department:

- Super Robot Taisen α Complete Sound Track
- Super Robot Taisen α Gaiden OST
- Steel Messiah: Super Robot Taisen α Gaiden Theme Song
- Super Robot Taisen α Original Score I ~Sky Chapter~
- Super Robot Taisen α Original Score II ~Earth Chapter~
- Super Robot Taisen α Original Score III ~Soldier Chapter~
- Super Robot Taisen Gaiden: The Lord of Elemental Sound Storm
- Super Robot Taisen IMPACT OST
- GO!!: Super Robot Taisen IMPACT Theme Song
- VICTORY: Super Robot Taisen MX Theme Song
- Super Robot Taisen Original Generation ~15th Anniversary Song Collection~
- 4th Super Robot Taisen Powerful Music Battle
- Shin Super Robot Taisen Powerful Music Battle II

Yeah.

Top it all off with a gallery for Original Generation 2, and you're on your way to a well-rounded education in one of the most ridiculous subcultures Japan has ever created: giant robot fanboyism.
