Episodic Super Robot Taisen Game Has, Predictably, A Lot Of Downloadable Content

imageNamco Bandai will release the first chapter of Super Robot Taisen: Operation Extend on Thursday via Japan’s PlayStation Store. Super Robot Taisen: Operation Extend looks like the usual mecha mashup with one exception, it’s an episodic PSP game.


You can purchase the first episode for 500 yen ($5) or all eight chapters for 5,980 yen ($60). Each chapter has about 20 missions and Namco Bandai plans to release additional missions as downloadable content.


Super Robot Taisen: OE also has parts like buffs that double the experience, EC, and money you get after a mission. The catch is these items are consumable. So, the Part Strengthening Item that increases the quality of parts dropped by defeated enemies only lasts a set number of times. Usually, that’s a number of missions like a five mission boost for 100 yen, ten mission boost for 200 yen, and a 30 mission boost for 300 yen. The parts item lasts after defeating 5, 15 or 30 enemies. Another item removes all of the remodeling limitations for one robot for 100 yen.

    It’s okay. I’m gonna GRIND the hell out of this game. Always interested in SRW Neo, never had chance to buy Wii.

    So long as remodeling limitations can be unlocked by playthroughs like the previous games, I am fine with the DLC so far. Though the parts still seem a bit of a ripoff.

  • Eight episodes times 500 yen is only 4000 yen…. Where did they get the extra 1980 yen for the full price? Isn’t that kind of a rip-off?

    • Lynx

      Because every episode isn’t 500? That’s for the first episode. Everything else is going to be higher.

      • Kibbitz

        1000 yen per ep, to be exact. For a total of 7500 if you buy all the eps, though you can buy the whole pack for 5980 apparently.
