  • SOMEBODY LOCALIZE THIS. I know we can’t get a legit SRT game, but at least bring over the OG saga.

  • TOUMA!!!!!!
    I hope we get him early~

    Also wtf is Excellence Rescue, Raul ended up as a support unit after they got rid of Lightning and Eternal, lol.

    • LynxAmali

      The Rescue was the original intent for the Excellence, actually. They were originally meant to be used a Rescue team but the Time Flow Engine was refitted for combat purposes.

      At least, according to R. Wonder if they’re going to use that in OG as they’ve dismantled the Lightning and Eternal as well as the Time Flow Engines.

      • Oh ok, that I did not know. Then again I never played R, lol.

        There are so many god power engines in the OGverse, I’m sure if not Time Flow they used something else xD That’d be actually interesting to see, I think it would be the first unit straying away from its original source at some point, also assuming Fiona has one as well I can’t get the idea out of my head that they are combinable *shrugs*.

        • Mr_SP

          Yeah, the Rescue is a new frame to make up for dismantling the Time Flow Engine. Rescue will be the *only* Excellence frame… however, it’s been said to be quite combat-worthy, though we’ve yet to get a good look at it’s stats.

          • LynxAmali

            I’m calling it will be transforming. The bottom half, the things that allow it to hover, whatever, look too much like gigantic legs to me.

        • LynxAmali

          Raul was scared due to the fact that it was LITERALLY ripping apart the space-time continuum. At least, the Lightning and Eternal Frames were.

          The attack animations? It was literally tearing apart the dimensional boundaries. It was sort of a reverse System-XN if you will.

    • Mr_SP

      We’re not getting Touma early. There are very strong suggestions that Touma is connected to the new enemy, Jinrai… who is referred to as Dynamic General Guardian 3, leading to the thought that Raioh is built from Jinrai. And with the SRW EX events looking like they come first in the game, Touma could be a mid-game, if not late, acquisition.

      • Yes, sadly that’s what I think as well. Well as long as he’ll be playable for more than a handful missions I’ll be fine. That said I wonder about it’s entrance. We haven’t seen much of it yet and no Minaki either.

    • Kibbitz

      With main SRT theme songs all done by JAM Project in general, the presence of the Excellence Rescue keeps making me want to sing this:

  • Bloodios

    There isn’t any chance of this game ever getting localized!
    On the other hand, new entries are always welcome.

  • コルセット

    How many goats do I have to sacrifice in order to have this localized?

    • Bloodios

      Start with a sheep, or better yet, a lamb. Then just keep on sacrificing until your prayers is heard. But if you have enough money to do that, use them to amass some sort of business, then use the profits to make the game’s localization possible.

      • s07195

        If lambs or sheep don’t work, then continue moving up the chain. Llamas are next.

    • 古戸ヱリカ

      Seven. As in, the number of years it took for this game to go from announced to released.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    This is one of those games I get to make a lot of friends jealous of when I say I’m playing it. Can’t wait, it’ll be glorious.

    • Brandon001

      yeah, rub it in, real nice.

    • MrTyrant

      Not your friend but I would be jealous just by reading that you are playing it ><

  • There was once Atlus bring 2 OSRW game to GBA, not sure why they stop localized after it. Maybe the poor sales…

    • tanto

      sales had nothing to do with it

      • It does my friend.

        • tanto

          When it comes to atlus it has nothing to do with it. They stop localizing series when theyve done at least 1 entry about 10 times. Its just what they do.

          Theyve said on there forums sales have nothing to do with that

          • link please.

          • tanto

            Sorry expecting me to find a forum post from before 2007 is a little much

          • well then I won’t consider what you said is true =V

      • Mr_SP

        Sales have everything to do with it. Atlus are a company. Companies don’t like losing money.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        It is everything about sales bro.

    • LynxAmali

      That what little promotion (if any at all) and releasing it on a handheld’s deathbed will do to you.

      Actually, I found about the series way after Atlus released OG1 and OG2 for the GBA. It was a stream of OG2 Version A (fan hack that replaces Lamia with Axel and rewrites A LOT of the dialogue and events. Ouka joins the player team and you fight Mitsuko during one of the final stages.)

      • s07195

        Downloaded that one the other day. Guess it’ll have to wait until I beat OG1 though.

        I’m scared that it’ll become the ‘canon’ in my mind, though. >.<

    • Morricane

      I’m pretty sure the absurdly high amount of content from various IPs (designs, voice acting etcetc.) owned by various companies makes a localization deal for the average SRT game nigh impossible.

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        But the OG series has all original mechs and characters unique to Banpresto, so licensing wouldn’t be the problem.

  • tanto

    i will import it

  • Joseph Steinhilpert

    hopes deleted when I read the last sentence.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Going to wait first before importing here.T_T No money left to burn. Hope that i won’t get spoiled so hard while waiting.T_T

  • agumike (けんじ)

    HD Valsione R is one of the main reasons why I am excited. Although not confirmed, it is pretty easy to guess the Valsione will get upgraded this game. Might even get some “Shiiibaaaraaaakuuuuuu”

  • Awesome time to be broke, why couldn’t this come out 1.5 years ago as it should’ve..

  • Every new game article have at least one comment saying “PLEASE LOCALIZE THIS”. Anyway I want this game so bad but I still can’t get use to the overpriced game in Japan.

  • s07195

    Started playing OG1 (US) straight of 2nd SRW Z: Regeneration Chapter and boy was the difficulty spike quite large.

    My friend laughed and said, ‘Wait until you play OG2!’

  • SupaPhly

    i… i could still play this without understanding japanese, right? ;_;

    • Kibbitz

      Yea, game’s pretty simple to play and there’s places you can ask for help on explaining mechanics and wikis for secrets and mechanics and stuff these days.

      • GVmanX

        A fellow who goes by the name of MNeidengard on GameFAQs will also likely do a story walkthrough for it. It’ll take him a while, but he’ll do it.

  • >Masaki Andoh and Cybuster
    >Masaki Andoh

    Nearly misread that as:

    • That’s no coincidence, they based the character name off of his.

    • LynxAmali

      Which is ironic, considering who sings the the vocal theme of Neppu, Shippu, Cybuster.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    It’ll be interesting to see the sales of this game. It’ll serve as a big indicator as to where the SRW audience is and where the series will continue from here on out.

    • I still kinda think they should have made a non OG game for the PS3 first, as they generally sell more and approach a wider mecha fanbase(not that I personally mind as I like both the crossover and OG lines).

      • Alexander Marquis Starkey

        That is extremely hard considering all the characters come from different series, which in the US, rights are distributed to several companies. Namco may have all the rights to those games but there are several other companies that have localization rights and rights to where those characters appear.

  • Learii

    i wish this type of game come oversea

  • Please, Namco Bandai or Atlus or somebody… please, localize this! It seems f-ing amazing! SUPER ROBOT!
