Rumor: Popular Strategy RPG Reveal Is A Super Robot Taisen Game

By Spencer . March 4, 2010 . 11:46pm

image Next week, Famitsu will reveal a new entry in a popular strategy RPG series. This game may be Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Masou Kishin The Lord of Elemental.

 

A retail listing popped up for Masou Kishin The Lord of Elemental and then quickly vanished, but not before it was captured by a Japanese blog. The pulled product page says Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Masou Kishin The Lord of Elemental is a remake of the Super Famicom title with a similar name (no Gaiden). It uses the battle system from the original game, but ditches the super deformed look for realistic robot graphics during battle. Somehow, Masou Kishin The Lord of Elemental manages to tie-in to the existing OG Saga mythology too.

 

Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Masou Kishin The Lord of Elemental, according to the potential leak, is dated for May 27.

    While it’s painfully obvious that when it comes to Namco Bandai’s priorities, IT’S OVER 9000 times busy with Dragonball, to the point it’s practically making SRW and TALES non-existent… in America.

    Since that’s the case, then, I can only lean to any of these companies that have a shot to localizing this for the North American market:

    –Atlus USA
    –D3 Publisher (since it already localized Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow and God Eater)

    Storyline-wise, does this mean that Cybuster would be lifted of its Jeigan status?

      They’re just busy making OVER 9000 more monies off of Dragon Ball than they would with SRT or Tales. Fact of the matter, as sad as that is. Kinda doubt Atlus will do anymore SRT games, either.

        I agree about ATLUS, they haven’t had the best success with SRT. While I admit that I liked the recent Endless Frontier release, the game didn’t sell well enough to warrant a reprint. As far as I’m aware, Original Generations only did marginally well, too.

        Though I really hate that outdated 9000 meme.

          Then it’s…1006.

          Oh god d*mmit, I had thing on upside down.

          does every SMT that atlus makes get a reprint?

        I guess that D3 Publisher of America is our only hope now; heck, when I called them months ago, I asked them if they’re a Namco Bandai subsidiary, which one of their operators confirmed. From there, I asked if they’d localize SRW.

      Dragonball and Naruto. Also, perhaps they’re rolling out this stuff in preparation for OG3… maybe? But then again they were only able to secure rights to Masaki, Lune, Shu, and Thomas, if I recall correctly. I wonder how they nabbed the rights to the other Masou Kishin characters from Winkysoft? Then again, it’s been 14 years. Maybe some license or agreement wore out.

        Geez, why won’t Namco Bandai just use up its Dragon Ball profits to buy and own Masou Kishin rights outright?

        • Xien12

          Well, Banpresto and Winkysoft had a little breaking apart that left a bitter aftertaste. I guess now that Banpresto is absorbed into BAMCO, buying the rights to their old collaborations should be easier.

            I forgot to ask you this earlier, but wouldn’t be easier for Banpresto’s job if Namco Bandai would’ve bought Winkysoft, should Winky still be operational today?

          • Xien12

            I think it would give Banpresto more room to work with and the license issues would’ve been taken care of faster, but… Who knows? I guess now that Winkysoft’s not really doing anything, they can finally let go of some of their old stuff.

    The story makes it sound like the old SNES Gaiden game used super deformed graphics, which it did not. Unless by “original” game it means the non-OG SRW games.

    Spencer: Masoukishin was not an SD game by any means, much like Shin for the Playstation. Please correct this in your news post.
