Super Robot Taisen’s Mechas Mix It Up In Masou Kishin III: Pride of Justice

By Sato . May 9, 2013 . 4:34pm

Namco Bandai’s upcoming Super Robot Wars spin-off, Masou Kishin III: Pride of Justice, will be seeing both new and familiar faces. Earlier this week, we reported on the game’s trailer, showing some gorgeous animation. Now, Famitsu.com have have introduced some of the mecha, called Masou Kishin, and their pilots.

 

Masou Kishin III: Pride of Justice will be the first multi-platform title in the series on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3. It features many original characters from Super Robot Wars in a brand new story. The game takes place in the same world of the previous series, La Gius. The mightiest country of La Gius, called Holy Langran Kingdom, created a powerful giant machine weapons, known as the Masou Kishin.

 

Cybuster

Pilot: Masaki Andoh

Cybuster is contract-bound to the spirit of wind, Syphis, and posses the elemental power of wind. It has the ability to open the gate between the Earth and La Gius on its own. Cybuster can also transform into the bird-like flying form, Cybird.

 

 

Granveil

Pilot: Huang Yanglong

 

Granveil is a Masou Kishin contracted with the fire spirit, Granva. It has exceptional offensive prowess but seems to be lacking in defense. It’s known for using attacks such as the “Caloric Smash” and uses a “Caloric Recycler” to go with it.

 

 

Goddess

Pilot: Tyutti Noorbuck

Tyutti pilots the Masou Kishin contract-bound with the water elemental spirit, known as God. It has lower attack power than the other Masou Kishin, but it has several long-ranged weapons and versatile other abilities such as a repair device.

 

 

Zamzeed

Pilot: Mio Sasuga

 

Zamzeed is the earth type Masou Kishin who is contract-bound to the spirit Zamuj. It has low mobility but boasts very high defense and regeneration capabilities. It is also the most durable of the bunch. Zamzeed’s previous pilot was a man by the name of Ricardo, but after a certain incident, the position has gone to Mio.

 

 

 

Giorias

Pilot: Fang Xan Vicias

Similar to Cybuster, Giorias is contracted to a wind spirit. Unlike Syphis, it is a lower ranked spirit known as Giolute. It was created with the intention of being in the front-line of combat, therefore boasting strong armament and thick armor.

 

 

Leogeira

Pilot: Tsrein Xan Lecanivan

Leogeira is contracted with the lower spirit of fire, Leoga, and features a  meteor-type attribute. Previously, it was noted that Leogeira’s performance was lacking, so it has been upgraded since then. It excels in melee combat.

 

 

 

Delgiran

Pilot: Mefil Xania Borlang

Delgiran is contract-bound to the other earth spirit, Delgina. It features a volcanic-type attribute and excels in long-ranged combat with missiles and tough armor plate.

 

 

 

Dinflail

Pilot: Gido Zeehofer

Contract-bound by the lower-ranked fire spirit, Dinfule. This lightning-type Masou Kishin was originally in a dormant state, but it has since then been adopted by Gido.

As previously reported,  first print copies will include a download code for Valsione, who can change its form into Valsione R from Super Robot Wars OG: The Inspector. Here’s a closer look!

 

 

Masou Kishin III: Pride of Justice is slated for release on August 22, 2013 for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3. The story events of Masou Kishin III: Pride of Justice can also be revisited in the option gallery mode, right after you finish watching them in the main game.

    It’s actually La Gias, not La Gius.

    Also, I definitely look forward to this game. Definitely importing this one as fast as I can. However, ideally-wise I hope for a localization of this game.
    It would be grant to play this game in English on the PS3 and Vita, considering both video game systems need some awesome SRPGs and overall badassery epicness. Same goes to 2nd Super Robot Wars Original Generation.
    Well, there’s Operation Hotblood fighting for this, but in the end we just have to go to Namco Bandai (or Atlus USA) and convince them that we want these kind of games in the US and Europe.

    As the other commenter noted, La Gias. Plus, Syphis -> Cyfis.

    And, you’ve got the Valsiones flipped. The default mech in Masoukishin III is the Valsione R and the download code is for the ~The Inspector~ version of the Valsione. (Heck, the Valsione R didn’t even exist timeline-wise until The 2nd Super Robot Wars OG, which post-dates ~The Inspector~)

    NItpicking aside, can’t say I’m impressed so far with MK3. The animations are still too stiff for my liking, and I’d need to wait and see how the visuals scale on the PS3.

    Plus, I couldn’t care about importing MK1, couldn’t even play MK2, and even then, I wouldn’t be able to read the story anyway, so I’d only be in it for the gameplay and animations to begin with for MK3.

    I think I’ll just stick with 2nd OG for impressive animations for the time being unless MK3 shows me something more impressive down the road.

    Unless they bump up Valsione’s stats, I don’t see the point as it’s more like a downgrade. Unless it’s just an aesthetic change.

    Also; not too fond of Fang’s redesign. Bye-bye, Scouter! Hello, Joshua with highlights! (which may or may not be intentional as both are voiced by Yuuichi Nakamura.)

    Leogeira having wheel kicks just was the icing on the cake.

      I’ve always seen Fang as a more hotheaded Kyousuke, but I guess that works too.

    Let’s see which giant robots I look forward using in this game: Cybuster , Granveil and Valsione R, aww yeah! However, Goddess and Giorias look awesome as well.

    Hmm, didn’t find myself too interested in the Masou Kishin storyline. Although Cybuster and Valsione are great mechs, not to mention Granveil and Zamzeed’s attack power and durability respectively are quite good, I found myself mostly skipping the storyline in the EX plot of 2nd OG. Had to get to that SRW D and MX goodness. :P

    I guess I just don’t feel for the characters.

      Personally, I like the English localization of that attack, “Cosmic Nova”, better. It sounds as more stronger attack than if you say “Cosmo Nova” imo.

    Does Tyutti every say anything like “I’m on a mission from God?” Also, where exactly do the Masou Kishin games take place? I thought Lord of Elemental took place before and after EX in the original timeline and fit in somewhat to the Alpha timeline and OG timeline. Where do Revelation of Evil God and this fit in?

    • VenerableSage

      Masou Kishin 1 book ends a decent amount of content: Part 1 of MK1 takes place before Masaki ever chases Shu back to Earth (as seen in the OG timeline during the Antarctic Incident that sparked the DC War). Part 2 takes place after EX’s plot and, in relation to the OG timeline, after 2nd OG ends (since it contains EX).

      Masou Kishin 2 takes place following MK1 Part 2.

      From the first part of the PV/trailer, it appears like MK3 follows after MK2, timeline-wise.
