The 2nd Super Robot Taisen OG Will Land On PlayStation 3 [Update]

By Ishaan . May 17, 2011 . 5:38pm

This week’s Famitsu magazine has a listing for The 2nd Super Robot Taisen OG for the PlayStation 3.


Super Robot Taisen: Original Generations was originally a title released for the Gameboy Advance. It was followed up with a sequel, titled Original Generation 2, and both games were eventually given enhanced remakes on the PlayStation 2 as a single game, simply titled — like the original GBA game — Super Robot Taisen: Original Generations.


This game could be a follow-up to the PlayStation 2 title.


Update: Banpresto promises HD quality graphics and 3D backgrounds for The 2nd Super Robot Taisen OG. The PlayStation 3 game will make use of dynamic camerawork during battles too.


Ing and his robot Ash (pictured) are new to The 2nd Super Robot Taisen OG. Ariel Org and the Flickerei Geist from Banpresto’s PS2 game Real Robot Regiment are confirmed to be in the PS3 game. Scans also show a Joshua Radcliff and his mecha Aile Chavelier in Super Robot Taisen Destiny too. Ryujinki, Cerberus, Altalion, and MP Gespenst Mk-II Type N and Type C are in the game too.

  •  Oh I almost thought it was a sequel to the DS game we received a few years back. That was the only SUper Robot game I played and it was epic. I wish it had a followup.

    • Izludicus

      There was a sequel for that, but there have been no plans announced to release it in English which is a damn shame.

    • z_merquise

      You mean the spin-off game Endless Frontier? Yeah, that game is awesome. Too bad, the sequel was released more than a year ago and still no one thought of an English localization for it.

      (Aksys, Atlus . . . anyone? Please give this Endless Frontier sequel a chance.)

      • PrinceHeir

        KOS-MOS was awesome!!! :D

      • Guest

        The same thing happened with Banpresto’s Draglade sequel for DS

  • godmars


    I’m very excited about this… 

  • z_merquise

    Could this be OG3? Or an HD remake of the previous OG games? I’m hoping it’s OG3.

    Anyway, we should all thank the Machine Spirits for the PS3 is region-free. Praise The Emperor for the good news!!

    • PurpleDoom

      Seems to me like it’s a 3rd game. I hope it is, anyway.

      • Well it has a lot of new characters from other titles and seems to have their plots too, so I’m going with new game, OGs was the first game(counting OG1 and 2 as one game), OGG was well..Gaiden, so the 2nd continues the plot, like Z and the 2nd Z.

  • DanteJones

     Oh… my… a’gawd…

    Woooooo!! Oh man, so excited for this! Theres also a scan on gamefaqs somewhere showing a couple new OG characters, from MX and D I think. :D

  • OMG!!!!! this  make me  hype for the rest of this day 

  • I’d kill to see this ported to NA, but I won’t hold my breath. (>.<);

    • godmars

      Better to wish for an English menu or even subtitles.

      It’ll be region free so you can always import. Wait a few months and get it used off Ebay for cheap.

  • Covnam

    It’s so disappointing that the 2nd SRT OG Saga: Endless Frontier game Exceed hasn’t come to the US yet (and it doesn’t look to likely by now). Hopefully this game will make it here. Maybe it will even do well enough to bring Exceed :)

  •  Yes! now we need some localization.

    • heartless141

      don’t dream about it, overseas, each anime/robots are licensed by different people, getting all of em means massive cost and such, =/ and people are already complain about game being over 60 bucks.

      • WyattEpp

        OG means “Original Generation”.  They’re all Banpresto (read: Namco-Bandai) originals and it’s not unprecedented for the OG series to come out in the US: Both the two OG games for GBA and the thoroughly horrible OG Saga on DS were localised.

        • True enough if the west wants a new chance of localization this game is it(PS3, HD graphics and all), if Atlus or whoever doesn’t pick this, then we can forget about any localization in the future

        • heartless141

          OG saga on DS means only Endless Frontier, even EXCEED wasn’t localized =/

  • I’m still waiting for Cobray or Asakim in OG

    • Guest

      Psybuster better be oin thats all I’m sayin

  • I suspect @playstation #SCEA will deny us of @SuperRobotWars:twitter, since it’s outside of #SCEA’s marketing targets and will force on them the high and almighty “MANDATORY ENGLISH DUB INCLUSION OR NO US RELEASE” rule, even when Namco Bandai is rather unwilling to spend $$$ for good English voice acting.

    Alternatively, it can also go, “WE’LL ALLOW US RELEASE OF A SUBTITLE-ONLY GAME, ALBEIT WITH CUT CONTENT *coughYakuza3cough*” unwritten rule, or any other.

    •  Was this rule ever confirmed? Seems odd to have suspicions when there is no tangible solid evidence anywhere.  With the releases Namco Bandai Games has lined up, Id be shocked if they honestly even have time to get to another game. Tales of Graces F already seems to have them to their limits if it is on track for a release occurring later than Inversion.  

      • If there’s a repeating pattern, shouldn’t it be at least enough to raise suspicions?

      • PurpleDoom

        It’s never been confirmed and it shouldn’t be assumed that any game got relegated to DL-only because of it, but I think there’s enough plausible evidence that suspicion is reasonable.

        Then again, as you said, there’s also evidence that seems to go against it, so it could go either way.

        • cj_iwakura

           Trapt(Deception IV) had Japanese language. No dub. PS2, US released.

          • PurpleDoom

            The rumored policy is specifically for PS3 games, but even then you have Yakuza 3 (4 too? I dunno anything about these games aside from the little I’ve heard.)

          • PrinceHeir

            wait you know Trapt? the one that sets up traps to lure enemies? is that what they call Deception in japan? 

          • cj_iwakura

            Trapt is what they called Deception IV. Deception I, II, and III are all the names of a Japanese series, none of which have the same title.

            I wrote an article on it, it may help.


          • PrinceHeir

             soo awesome :D

            never knew these games existed, will check the site for more ^^

            so it’s not really a sequel(well Trapt seems to be a sequel to Deception II), but i plays more closer to Deception III) 

    • You’ve been making a lot of wild statements out of nowhere about SCEA for a few weeks now, none of which are known to be confirmed in any way. Cut content in Yakuza had absolutely nothing to do with SCEA; it was a Sega decision…stop talking nonsense please. :p

      • kroufonz

        maybe siliconera could try to interview scea about some of this “rule” to clear suspicion, how scea policy and requirement for japanese voice only game, 2d japanese game, and visual novel (especially on PS3), and why they didn’t bring wkc2 and demon soul to US:P

        (at this time  a lot of people convinced that scea have this dub rule and quite strict toward 2d japanese game)

        for now we know that sakura wars 1&2 rejected because it is visual novel or not a “game” by sony (from siliconera interview with nisa president cmiiw) , while japanese voice suspicion raise from first agarest (people believe yakuza allowed to get retail release because sega big name or something), and 2d japanese game with japanese voice only suspicion came from  arcana heart 3 (of cource we should also consider the probability that it is just aksys that chose ddl only for both game ) 

        while the yakuza cut content are definitely/purely sega fault.

    • Ravage27

      You know, i’m one of those who are pissed by SCEA’s decision to snub Demon’s Souls and WKC2 (but thankfully still allowed other publishers to step in unlike NamcoBandai)

      That being said, i am floored by the complete lack of logic in your post. Yakuza 3 fate was purely SEGA’s decision. Ask yourself this, what would SCEA stand to benefit if content was cut? Illogical nonsense. Lastly, the existence of the undubbed Yakuza 3 disprove that a ‘mandatory dub’ rule is still in place.

      • What? How can one be “pissed” that the company chose to not publish the game themselves but still give it to other publishers? Its not like they are blocking it from release, if anything one should be glad? perhaps they just passed on it because they couldnt effectively market it, or they just dont have any developers who are free. Theres a lot of stuff behind the scenes that could lead to the reason. Really getting angry because the game is not coming from SCEA but another company is just odd, tbh.

    • Guest

      There is no mandatory English dub inclusion rule or else how do you explain Yakuza series

  • Exand

    Wow, due out this August with a LE version that has a bluray set of SRW OG: The Inspector anime :o

    Can’t wait!

  • being unfamiliar to the series made that last paragraph complete nonsense.

  • HarryHodd

    Sounds great and looks great! This definately needs localized.

  • PrinceHeir

     soooo awesome!!!!

    please put Xenosaga in it as well as Full Metal Panic, Macross :P

    though i was hoping Ace and Armored would make an appearance then again their coming up with a new Armored core so doubt they’ll let that overshadow.

    • It’s an original generation game, it only has original characters from the SRT series in it.  

      • PrinceHeir

        oh i see,

        maybe next game ^^ 

  • I hope this is in the same universe as OG. I love that universe — it knows exactly what it is and makes no apologies and has no pretensions.

  • An OG on PS3!? Dare I hope to have it translated…

  • Hope they bring it over… someone?

  • Oh my god so awesome, I’ve been waiting years for this, literally years super hyped for it, I’ll definitely import it but I hope someone brings it west too, I’d absolutely double dip

  • kroufonz

    argh this will be released in august to that could be pretty close wit to heart 2 dx plus release date. and i can only import one(T-T)

    hope some one could publish this especially NISA (it is a PS3 exclusive japanese anime srpg whuch pretty much their usual field, if nisa get this dual voice almost surely in the game too) not hoping to much from atlus at the moment since recently beside their inhouse game (catherine and enhanced port of smt ds overclocked), they have no upcoming japanese title yet to be coming soon this year. xseed or aksys looks llike still quite free maybe they could do it.

  • WyattEpp

     Just when I don’t want to give Sony so much as a penny…god damn it.

  • Exkaiser

    Oh, hey, a not-so-blurry photo of the groupshot, taken by someone on /m/.

    Raioh, baby!

    •  HOLY!!!!! RaiOh…am I dreaming..? Best news I’ve seen this month!

      • Exkaiser

        Looks like the prototype version appears as an enemy as well.

        Called the Jinrai here, it’s controlled by an AI and “Its objective seems to be the destruction of Daizengar and Aussenseiter,” according to the blurb. DGG-3, same as the RaiOh.

        • Wait, wow the RaiOh has a predecessor? Interesting and man that thing looks cool, totally digging his scarf-cape, also nice camera angles and sprite details!

        • LynxAmali

          That’s actually the missing DGG. It’s not the predescessor. I wouldn’t be suprised if it got playable in the OG4 (Maybe…Unless they cover Touma’s entire route with Baran Doban included in one BECAUSE COME ON, IT’S ALREADY A WALKING KAMEN RIDER shot) and got a combo with Jinrai turning into a motorcycle. REFERENCE! Why not make it more obvious?

          EDIT: Actually it’s not. It’s the final attack of DaiRaiOh. My bad.

    • neocatzon
      • Exkaiser
’s article wasn’t up yet when the anon took the photo, but thanks.

  • Lol, the new robot looks like an enhanced version of the Ex-Bein, which…was an enhanced version of the Huckebein~ Looks awesome though! I’m sooo absolutely DAY 1 BABY DAY 1 on this, it’s not even funny!!!!!

  • LynxAmali

    I feel trolled. Always wanted a PS3 but parents said it was too expensive. Got a PSP and Xbox instead. I feel stupid.

    Anyone know what the lowest price of a PS3 is if I can get a part time job and find them on sale? ;_; 

    • If you live in the US and are part of Gamestop’s power Up Rewards, you might want to take a look on the site. I got a 100$ off coupon for a PS3 and that’s how I got mine.

      And there really is no reason to feel trolled. The Xbox 360 and PSP are perfectly well systems and have their of library of games that NO ONE should miss.

  • Guest

    Wait so is this SD in 2D graphics with 3D backgrounds or full size 3D models with 3D backgrounds?

    • The former by looking at the screens.

    • SetzerGabbiani

      If it was the latter, no buy. 

      • Guest

        That’s dumb. It’s good to keep an open mind. 

  • Peytral

     My life will be forever complete if this is localized.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    Please let there be updated Gespents for Katina and Russel.  That’s all I ask.

    • LynxAmali

      They are. They’re getting the ones from ACE Portable. Kai’s getting the Balanced (The green one) Katina’s getting the Melee (the red one) and Russel’s getting the long range support (the blue one) 

      • SetzerGabbiani

        That’s all I needed to know.  Octo Squad 4 life!

  • Captshiro

      I’m Jumping Outta my pants for this. Ofcourse I’d Import, but I hope it comes to NA. I pray to the gaming industry to allow it. Allow i’m in an open minded frame nwo with the new Bleach game coming out on PS3 (But that has teh support of anime fan’s/Main Stream anime fans). Also I’d totally buy the LE for this. Let us all Pray for a NA release. (Also I don’t think its a long shot for a NA release but then again I wouldn’t say it be top on the list for anyone to grab just being realistic there)
