So… About Super Robot Taisen: Original Generations

By Spencer . June 3, 2009 . 12:10pm

imageAfter our Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier interview some readers were expecting an announcement about Super Robot Taisen: Original Generations. The game wasn’t at E3 so I asked Atlus about it.


Aram Jabbari, Manager of PR and Sales, answered the question. “Atlus has no plans to localize Super Robot Taisen Original Generations,” he said.


I don’t think this is one of those “no plans, but we’ll surprise you in the future with it” kinds of announcements either. I took this statement as Super Robot Taisen Original Generations and Super Robot Taisen Original Generations Gaiden are staying in Japan. Sorry. (Insert sad face).

    :( i was planning on waiting to play a localized version of this game…but i guess im gonna pay the GBA version to grasp the story then play the ps2 version to have better idea of the game. i played the original WAY back when it came out but havn’t played the english version yet.

  • So, this is what it sounds like, when doves cry :(
    This was one of those 50/50 things in the back of my head, but who knows? It might get picked up by someone else. Eventually.

    • Happy Gamer

      yeah i def see why not. its def one of the best SRPG i played. it’d be delightful to be able to grasp the plot better. although we are missing the other SRW games, this one since it doesn’t conern liscensing is def worth it because as a veteran SRW player, i personally think this one, outside of the main series, is still one of the best game i have played.

      im hopin OG saga does pretty well and fan demand for this game to be released.

      • Ereek

        The “why not” would be because it’s a PS2 game. The only people developing and localizing PS2 games are the shovelware games and NISA. Atlus may do one or two in the future, but they’re moving away from it, too.

  • Philemon

    That sucks :(

    Did you ask them about Growlanser PSP too ;)?

    • Claves

      Seconding this.

      Seems kinda sad to have let fans have some hope of this being released for so long when they clearly had no intention of localizing it. I don’t want to be stuck hoping for them to localize Growlanser and find out years later that it was in vain.

  • maxchain

    Aw, damn! Does this mean Atlus is done with the PS2? Nothing but sports and guitar games from here on out, I imagine.

    • Ereek

      NISA still has a few PS2 releases, but otherwise, yes. It’s all sports/movie/television show-type games.

  • Hero of Legend

    Since you’re asking around, can you ask about like, if Atlus has plans to localize Kizuna, and what future plans they have for the Wii? I’d also like to know if they would hint at what Sting’s up to.

    • lostinblue

      THIS, THIS!

      specially regarding their Wii in-house support plan.

      If possible imply that we want more than just hospital simulator games >_>

  • A disenchanted Atlus fan

    2 years later…. Still nothing, I really can’t say I’m surprised.

    But I do feel a little cheated, to say the least. I (and a lot of other people, I’d wager) only bought Endless Frontier because I thought it might be testing the waters for Original Generations.

    • Fonic

      Yeah I was kind of hoping that Endless was a sign of things to come but I guess it was just a fluke after all. Too bad, but not really unexpected.
      Guess I’ll have to try and brave the Japanese version after all.

  • leafpanda

    I still have a feeling this will be one of those “no plans, but we’ll surprise you in the future with it” I mean tons of games have been like that. Tatsunoko vs. Capcom that seemed hopeless, but hey look at it now

    • jarrodand

      Not really, Capcom’s people kept talking up TatsuCap and saying they wanted to do it…

  • Happy Gamer

    i guess my gripe is that they could have done so much earlier.

  • Zefiro Torna

    Atlus… Atlus…


  • Stihl

    wow you people are pathetic. It was pretty obvious Atlus was never gonna do this game.

    • lostinblue

      you shouldn’t call people pathetic. They’re fans, they are paying for it, if it ever comes.

    Maybe now you gamers will decide to import inside of clinging to your damn false hopes of localization for every DAMN JAPANESE GAME.

    Hi there!
    Recently, I’ve come into contact with the SRT: OG 1 and 2 for the GBA. (I know, a bit behind the times but eh, still enjoy the portables) I was wondering what it’d take to actually get a game from Japan ported to here in the States. I’d really like to see more of the SRT series (Even though I hear it spans 33+ games) translated to English (or other languages) so more of the world can play these great games. I’ve definately fallen in love with the SRT series just from playing the two GBA games. Thanks in advanced.
