The 2nd Super Robot Taisen Z Gets Its First Trailer

By Ishaan . January 12, 2011 . 11:26am


It wasn’t long ago that we saw the release of Super Robot Wars L, but in celebration of Super Robot Wars’ 20th anniversary, Banpresto and Namco Bandai are working on The 2nd Super Robot Taisen Z: Breakthrough Chapter. The PSP game is a follow-up to the original, which was on the PlayStation 2. Here’s the game’s debut trailer.


The 2nd Super Robot Taisen Z: Breakthrough Chapter is slated for an April 14th release in Japan.

  • Exkaiser

    There’s too much here to describe everything that’s awesome. Double Obari kick, Godsigma and Godmars broing it up, Pilder launching from the Kurogane house, Shin Getter bouncing off of water and punching off robo-dragon heads…

    So much for the laws of physics, as they say.

    • godmars

      yeah, when it comes to giant robot anime, Newton defies the laws of physics in his grave. Nevermind simple spinning.

    • Couldn’t agree more, seeing the Scopedog speeding up, whereas the Xabungle, Gurren and Lagann can barely keep up with it, lol. And damn does Dai-Guard looks great, and slow as always xd
      Shin Getter being as badass as in the anime, was awesome too, not to forget the I think new enemies in here, as I never saw them in any of the series.

      • Exkaiser

        Yeah, I think those robo-dragon things are going to be the game’s Original enemies. At least like the Garden of Baral enemies in @2 and 3.

    • Aoshi00

      Godmars is awesome :) I think I saw the Big O too? I loved that series!

      • Exkaiser

        Yep, that was Big O, he’s returning from the first Z.

        And he was totally awesome there, too.

  • Xekyo

    i want/love/need this!

  • joesz

    I wish they reconsider releasing this onto PS3:( Because the trailer was otokomae~!

    • Exkaiser

      They’re probably going to, like what they did with compiling the Compact 2 trilogy into IMPACT on the PS2.

  • I’m sad that I don’t really get to play many of these games. I wish more of them got translation patches.

    I do own W and K for the DS, but it’s hard to play through them without understanding what going on.

    • Guest

      W is awesome because it has Voltron Defender of the Universe (aka Golion)

      BTW SRW J for GBA was recently 100% translated into English by a fan translation group

      • I actually bought W just because it had Golion. I think I got to around stage 10 before stopping though.

        I am currently playing the SRW J translation. I’m enjoying it, but I’m not really familiar with any of the series in the game. I’d love to play an SRW title with Evangeion or Gaogaigar (also in W). Part of me really hopes somebody attempts to do a translation of this because Gurren Lagann is in it.

  • ChaosPaladinFayt

    So um…..who here thinks this is ever gonna get localized… one? ding ding ding, correcto!!

    • You know how it works with mecha games, Japan gets the good stuff while the west gets all the scraps.

      • neocatzon

        ZOE, Armored Core, Virtual On, front mission.. they are all scraps?

        • PrinceHeir

          well there are exceptions but japan mostly gets the good stuff, i mean not only they have all those from outside of japan, they even have bigger titles like Mazin Kaiser, Evangelion, Eureka 7, Tengen Toppa Lagann to name a few.

          so yeah we get the scraps, but at least Zone of the Enders tops most mecha from japan, i mean who doesn’t like ZOE designs is not a true mecha fan.

  • Needs more G Gundam.

    • Tom_Phoenix

      Ugh….no thanks. G Gundam has been used so many times now that I have grown sick of it. I think it should sit this one out.

  • Guest

    They’re so scared to release a PS3 SRW game aren’t they…

    • Who cares? This is the first SRW for psp that it isn’t another port or remake.

  • The trailer is awesome, there are a lot of series that I like. Now I need some cool originals and the return of the previous one. I need to know more about Asakim and his Shrouga because they really look like the evil version of Masaaki/Cybuster.

  • WizardoftheBlueOrder

    …I would kill for GaoGaiGar to be in 2nd Z.

    If only so we can have Viral and Gai shouting and someone pointing out they sound suspiciously similar.

    • Scallion

      If GGG and TTGL were in the same game, the UMD would spin in both directions at once, melt through your hands, plunge into the earth’s core, and in one great, manly roar, everything on the planet would grow sideburns and fight for supremacy of the universe.

      • Exkaiser

        Didn’t that already happen in Alpha 3? Coulda sworn it did.

  • LynxAmali

    To quote Hayato from Getter;

    “The only ones to pilot Getter are either the chosen…or the insane!”

    I believe I fit the bill of insane. Hopefully, they got L’s squad system route because I want my double Dancouken. >_<

    Also; Exia= Predator? T_T

    • The Gundams in Gundam 00 can optically camouflage when completely stationary.

  • cj_iwakura

    Licensing hell or not, if anyone has the money to get all the approvals, it’s Namco Bandai. Still never gonna happen.

  • 5parrowhawk

    Gurren Lagann. And VOTOMS.
    The only way this could be more awesome would be to have UC, G Gundam and GOD GRAHAM FINGER.

  • leafpanda

    Need PSP now to play this game……………..

  • PrinceHeir

    i would love them to make a Super Robot Wars game with Xenosaga, Zone of the Enders, Evangelion, Rahxephon, Gundam, Macross Frontier, ACE, and Armored Core please. :)

  • Tom_Phoenix

    To be honest, I am disappointed that they didn’t release a gameplay trailer. Oh well, I guess we will just have to wait a bit longer.
