Super Robot Wars Masou Kishin Part 3 Is Coming To PS3 And Vita In August

By Spencer . May 7, 2013 . 4:03pm

image The Super Robot Wars series has a side story titled Masou Kishin which actually started on the Super Famicom. Namco Bandai remade the game for DS and called it Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Masou Kishin – The Lord of Elemental. A second entry in the Masou Kishin saga was release for PSP last year called Super Robot Wars OG Saga: Masou Kishin 2 – Revelation of Evil God.


Famitsu announced Masou Kishin: Pride of Justice which will be available on August 22 for PlayStation 3 and Vita. Yes, the Masou Kishin series changed consoles again. First print copies include a download code for Valsione that lets you change her appearance to look like Valsione R (pictured) from Original Generation: The Inspector.

  • Banpresto going all out with their OG franchise and I’m loving it~ Also OGTI Valsione looks like this~ The sexy moe version, which I’m totally digging, so I’m going for the first print preorder!

    • Sardorim

      Really? I recall the Inspectors version having a ridiculous bust. Or is that a sequel to the Inspectors?

  • ReidHershel

    Can we get another Super Robot Taisen game here please? With sugar and whipped cream on top.

    • Sardorim

      If only we could get one… They’re content with the Japanese market only. That and Copyright issues is an issue and finding VA Work is much harder than the Japanese industry by far.

      • Tre W

        But the sad thing is…there are no copyright issues to be concerned with as far as the OG games are concerned. They’re Banpresto’s own characters!

        I pretty much accepted that as soon as Banpresto’s gaming division was absorbed wholesale into the Bandai-Namco conglomerate, that anymore SRW OG translations by Atlus were not happening. But it’s still sad all the same.

        • Ferofax

          They just don’t sell in the West. That’s the bottomline right there. They can’t generate enough profit to justify the whole localization thingy. It would be easy if they wanted to do it despite that though.

          • Tre W

            Oh, I acknowledge the reasons, even I don’t like them! Probably doesn’t help that Atlus, in typical Atlus style, only gave OG1 and OG2 (GBA) a very limited press run, each. Which, combined with the fact that they were translated GBA games released well into the start of the DS’s career, sealed their fates.

            I just will always think of it as a tragedy, though. If Nippon Ichi’s SRPGs were able to find a niche, I would’ve thought that SRW OG could have, as well, in better circumstances.

          • Those are also reasons that SRW OG in it self is not the true reason, it’s mainly due to external issues I believe. So, after 6 years, I think we could need some new SRW OG epicness. 2nd SRW OG, anyone?

          • That was more that SIX years ago, six. Surely due to the increase of popularity in SRPGs, mecha anime (Gurren Lagann and Gundam 00 surely have introduced some people like me into mecha) and the upcoming Pacific Rim there may be a chance for the SRW OG games to make return in western territories.

        • Zhizn Snake

          At least we got Endless Frontier… which is the only SRW game the west has gotten… ever? Then they didn’t even bring over its sequel. I guess too few of us in the west want it :/ I wish they could make it downloadable at least, I want to play it in english so bad and there isn’t even a 100% english patch in the works. This is why I’m surprised that we’re getting Project X Zone since it’s basically the same kind of game Endless Frontier was… I wish everyone would buy it and support it when it releases (it even has some Endless Frontier characters!)

          • ever? didn’t you know about fully localized srt og and srt og2 for gameboy advance?
            instead of such a horribly mediocre game as endless frontier you could have gotten into OG series with those two great games.

          • Zhizn Snake

            No I didn’t know about those, and there’s not much chance of me playing them now is there? But I don’t appreciate Endless Frontier being called horribly mediocre, though :/ I actually loved it as a classic JRPG fan. Comparing it to the rest of the SRT games doesn’t make sense either since they’re completely different types of games.

          • Aside from my problems with the battle system, I found Endless Frontier a HUGE departure from previous Super Robot Taisen games that it felt quite dissapointing. Sure, it’s semi-present in the OG continuity as some alternate universe, but it lacks the giant mecha and the strategy RPG battle system – you know, the elements that makes a lot of people love the franchise.

          • Zhizn Snake

            Even as someone who had never played a SRT game before, I knew EF was nothing like the rest of the series or that it represented the rest of the series. Even I knew it was a spinoff, so I never saw any problem with that. It’s like the Battle Network series in the Mega Man series, just because it’s different doesn’t make it a bad game (EF was even reviewed well). EF is more like… in the line of the “series” of games started by Namco X Capcom. Because of EF I would love to try the rest of the SRT series, I’d put my vote in for a new western release for sure.

          • Project X Zone even has Sanger Zonvolt, one of SRW OG’s badass pilots, in it – but now he fights with his sword instead of his giant robot.

    • Well, I do know that there’s a group fighting for the localization of 2nd Super Robot Wars Original Generation for the PS3. It’s called Operation Hotblood. Look it up. The OG series may make a return in the hopefully near future if we just show Namco Bandai (or Atlus) how much western love or appreciation there is for strategy games which include giant robots and flying warships.

  • Sardorim


    At least the Vita and PS3 aren’t region locked.

    • Still waiting on PS4’s decision

      • Sardorim

        Next OG game may end up PS3 still, to reuse the stuff from the latest OG game, than they will jump to the PS4. So it may be a very long way.

        • No objections with that. I look forward loading my PS3 with lots of SRW OG epicness. Ideally, localized, though.

          • Sardorim

            With how easy everyone keeps saying the PS3 to Vita conversion is the next OG may even get a Vita release too.

        • Elvick

          I think they’re referring to region lock on PS4.

  • KnifeAndFork

    Still waiting for the Aeon Genesis Snes fan translation of the 1st game :P

  • TheExile285

    Should I import this for Vita..,,,?

    • Tiduas

      YES! :D

    • Koji Kabuto


  • MrTyrant

    YES!!!! I want Masou Kishin! moar Cybuster and Granzon are always welcome.

    BTW i want to see James Bond once again too:

  • Guess Operation Hotblood has a second objective now. Personally, I look forward to it and I hope Masou Kishin Part 3 also includes Cybuster and Granveil again.

  • SRW on PS Vita!!! Well this is going to help Vita more in Japan.

  • Kamakuma

    Importing this one for sure. There’s just no way I can stand not to at this point. It’s been way too long since I played any of these games.

    Best part is I can make out a bit of what’s going on here and there. Thank you Japanese classes and dear friend Rosetta Stone. xD
