Lasers Everywhere? Must Be A New 2nd Super Robot Taisen OG Trailer

By Spencer . August 24, 2012 . 12:26pm

Namco Bandai’s third trailer for The 2nd Super Robot Taisen OG is all fight scenes. Those high resolution sprites look pretty nice too and the camera work makes everything feel 3D.


After all the missiles are fired, players can explore Aidoneus Island and see characters from the Lost Children manga series. The 2nd Super Robot Taisen OG finally comes out on November 29.

Thanks for the tip Darjan! We got the “point.” :P

    bout time we got a new trailer and it looks like some of the old cast have new attacks.

    • Sardorim

      Well they are using a new art style so they might as well make everyone look flashy. Even those that no longer have any OG story material left.

  • riceisnice

    Hasn’t there been like a billion Super Robot Taisen games?

    • Godmars

      And only – two? – two released in English.

      I’ve imported four – one on the SNES and three PS2 titles.

      Doubt Bandai/Namco knows how many they’ve made.

    • LynxAmali

      The actual crossover titles, yes.

      OG titles, no. Only 4, not including the OG Saga titles. (both LoE games and both Endless Frontier titles)
      This’ll make 5 OG titles. (OG1 and 2 on the GBA, OGs and OG Gaiden on the PS2, OG2nd on the PS3)

  • DanteJones

    YES. So much excite. The lack of Raioh is a little disappointing but DAT SOULGAIN. <3

    This trailer is straight up bull.CG Alteisen only? Really?!

    And I like Ryu as much as the next guy, but  showing him and not Kyosuke is blasphemy.

    • Alteisen was in one of the other PV’s already, no problems there.

      • Sardorim

        No one is denying that he’s in the game, he just isn’t going to be playing a major story role anymore and wont be in your party in the early game. That’s being reserved to the new blood and those that still have stories.

    • Sardorim

      Unlike Kyosuke, Ryusei actualy has a ton of OG story material. Deal with it, Kyosuke is no longer the star. His job now is to help the other characters that still have stories left and the new blood.

      • $30632660

        You’re not fooling anyone, Ryusei has just has the same amount of story as Kyosuke, you’re acting butthurt because I don’t have the same fanboyish love for Ryusei as you do.

        Because Ryusei is a support character now too, so deal with it.

        • LynxAmali

          That’s wrong though. Ryusei and co technically have 4 games of material. 5, if you want to include Alpha Gaiden but that shouldn’t count because they’ve pretty much rewritten the entire Ancestor plot.

          Shin Super Robot Wars, Super Robot Wars Alpha, Super Robot Wars Alpha 2 and Super Robot Wars Alpha 3 have story for the SRX Team compared to Kyosuke who has 1 game of material (Technically 3 but Compact 2 was later remade into a single game, Impact)

          And assuming they do use Alpha 2 plot, the reason we might not have access to the SRX Team for some of the game is because they’re locked down by the Feds. That if, they go with that.

          Ryusei and Kyosuke might also have to deal with the ACE-R events. If you want to complain about any one getting more focus, Masaki. Considering EX plot is pretty much confirmed considering his ending in ACE-R being the EXACT same as his starting lines in EX…..

        • Sardorim

          Have you played any SRW games? Ryusei still has a ton of @ story left. Kyosuke literally has nothing, everything after Gaiden will be completely new to his character which means he will no longer be a main character anymore.

          You’re just angry that your favorite character has no more story left since it was finished up in OGs and Gaiden. That and they already confirmed that Kyosuke would be filling a mentor role now, they literally have very little left for him than that. Besides, many other OG characters have stories left so they take center stage. Yes, that includes Ryusei.

          • $30632660

            Ryusei doesn’t have jack, he was only a selectable protagonist in OG 1.He NEVER was the star of any of the SRW games, unlike Kyosuke.

            Ryusei was just simply a playable character. And they didn’t confirm anything, link the source or you’re just talking out your booty to make it seem like  you know what you’re talking about.

            Get over it, your fanboyism is getting annoying.

          • LynxAmali

            ALPHA 3 had the destruction of SRX, Aya’s ‘disappearance’ and Banpreios’ debut.

            And you were saying?

          • $30632660


            Go ahead and still try to say this game was about Ryusei or any other game for that matter.

            Fanboyism can only go so far -_-

          • Boy, you’re making a fool of yourself. Ryusei was the protaganist of Shin SRW (the first PS SRW title,) Super Robot Spirits (the N64 fighting game,) SRX team is intimately involved in the Alpha storyline as it’s an expanded version of Shin’s. The Balmar Empire was originally conceived as the original antagonists for Ryusei and SRX team. SRX plays a major role in Alpha 3. You’d know that if you’d actually played it (it’s obvious you haven’t.)

          • $30632660


            Stop trolling or Imma start flagging your comments.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Let’s ALL try to calm down. That said, you seem to be the only one using the fanboy and butthurt comments, or threatening to ‘flag’. Please watch rudeness when making your points.

          • $30632660

             @M’iau M’iaut The facts are right in their face.The links I posted on the issue proves my point.

            And yet I’m the butthurt one because other people are trolling and being extreme fanboys who can’t accept facts?

            And I’m being rude, when other people are clearly trolling? In fact, I’m actually being nice.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Sir, again this is as much an issue of how things are being said. We are speaking differences of how one reads the SRW ‘canon’ which has been spread out to the point anything canon can be disputed. They could certainly link to their own SRW fansites; as noted, I am asking EVERYONE to calm down and move on.

  • SetzerGabbiani

    I’ve had it pre-ordered at Play-Asia for so long at this point, I’m just glad to see that it’s alive.

    Good to see master Rishu in the Type-0 one more time :)

  • LynxAmali

    Ibis and Terminus Cannon are love <3.

    Kouta Azuma: They said he couldn't become a god or devil. So he became Obari'd.

    Aile has TWIN Cypher Swords now? Not sure how I feel about that. (It didn't have twin swords in D, did it?)
    Hopefully, we still have Burst Rave like we did in D. (Unless that was Burst Rave.)

    EDIT: Also; another kickass BGM which won't be in the actual game in any form.
    God damn it, Banpresto/ B.B

    • Loving your Kouta description~

  • Godmars

    More. More! More Sprite animation based games on HD consoles!!

    Worse news I heard this gen was how sprite animation would be too expensive to do. Nevermind improved.

    Its taken six years to get a game like this and most likely its going to ever be JP-only :`-(

    Though I heard that HK releases often get English options.

  • Raiyu

    I recently started playing the OG games on the GBA (kinda wish I had started playing the PS2 ones though, even if it is in Japanese). The games are fun so I’m excited, though I’m disturbed by the lack of Kyosuke and Alteisen since that’s my favorite mech so far. :(

    • Altritter

       He’s in the game, and in the first PV. These PVs just can’t include every mech because the roster is pretty massive at this point.

    • Daniel Morandi

      I have enough of Kyosuke and Alteisen, they are already in the game and we know tha they are cool. The OG verse is filled with good male leads to just keep having him as a main character and showing his face everytime.

    • Ronald Bixler

       Your mind says “Kyosuke”, but your heart quietly screams “Beowulf”.

    • Sardorim

      Kyosuke is a mentor role character now in the OG verse since his OG story ended by the end of Gaiden. Excellen as well, so expect them to join by mid game.

  • evilmoogle

    need more compatible kaiser.

  • Assuming there’ll be another PV right before the game comes out, I’ll demand right now that I want to see Raioh in it! Other than that this was a great vid. The “Exbein”(forgot the name of this design) is pretty darn sexy and Soulgain becomes more and more brutal which is awesome. Also those fantastic cutins(Kusuha and Ibis <3). Nice new JAM Project song as well, I seriously cannot wait any longer..!

  • SightTDW

    Looks so great in HD, but I can only ask nicely for OG localizations for so long!

  • Daniel Morandi


  • z_merquise

    Leave it to Banpresto when it comes to epic and over-the-top attack animations.

    It’s just too bad that the Shura gods (last appeared in OG Gaiden) weren’t here anymore. I would really like to see more Ialdabaoth in HD 2D.

  • Wondering_Zero

    I saw G-Compatible Kaiser in there…Mind instantly played his theme and heard Over Kaiser Sword as he flashed on the screen.

    My heart aches knowing I won’t get to see him in glorious 2D HD in the states.

  • Visa Vang

    It’s was just too epic… *went to the corner of the room and cries*
    Seriously, we are missing too much. The only one that we got was the spinoff OG Saga but we didn’t even got the second half of it. WHY?!

  • Sardorim

    Seeing as how Americans are more than willing to buy games from Japa with just english subs nowadays I don’t see why they don’t consider bringing this over like that. Cutting out VA work alone will save a ton of cash and time.

    •  I think they have to pay the japanese voiceover cast a royalty.  I’ve heard something like that in the past.  Yes I also wish more games like this could come over.  Namban has been better recently with graces F, Xillia, and Kuni so who knows, maybe.
