The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Z Unleashes Its Maximum Break

By Spencer . February 27, 2014 . 11:30pm

The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Z just like the other games the series or perhaps even Project X Zone has over the top special moves. Maximum Break moves are powerful moves that have two units team up for an even more powerful attack. This game adds mecha and characters from Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Aquarion EVOL, and Armored Trooper Votoms: Big Battle.


It’s neat to see how far Super Robot Taisen has come as a series compared to the Game Boy game which is getting a HD remake. Super Robot Taisen HD is a bonus with first print copies of The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Z.


The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Z comes out for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on April 10.

  • Masa

  • Jindan

    Who are the characters at 8:50 and 11:08 ? I cant find if they are from anime or game

    • lolokoa

      8:50 – Aoi From Dancougar Nova
      11:08- Simon from Gurren Lagann

  • Coco Martin

    so happy they included Bonta-kun and the game doesn’t look cheap now w/ better sprites glad my pre-order of this is going to be worth it

    • s07195

      The movement for Arbalest is still a bit… well…
      Overall, the new units’ movements seem not as smooth as anything in Z2…

      • Exkaiser

        Yeah, Unicorn’s units look really wonky, too…

        The 00 movie animations are new, though, right? They look fine.

      • 永次

        FMP animations are crap, I don’t know why they did something like this, and is worst when you compare it with Real Robot animations like Z Gundam or Sazabi.

  • bubblinz

    where’s wing zero custom???? not even a glimpse??

  • sd28

    hopefully we get hi nu gundam as a secret

  • Raine

    I think I just came at TTGL.

  • Spirit Macardi

    If you can use the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, then what the hell do you need the other robots for? It’s the size of several galaxies and formed from pure awesome; I think it can handle things just fine on its own x3

    More so if the Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is in this as well, since it’s a universe-sized Kamina made of fire.

    • Lynx

      -It’s the size of several galaxies

      It’s not.
      It was made in an ISOLATED space. It would be huge but it wouldn’t be as big as it was in regular space.

      They’re probably toning it down.

      • Wappuli

        It doesn’t really make any differense whenever it was or wasn’t made in isolated space, it has still been given an official size, which is way past the size of just several galaxies. Sure the animation made it look like smaller especially since it was clearly enough compared to Chouginga, but things got way too big in the end and the difference in those sizes was so enormous that it would have been impossible to animate coherently.

        But yea, Gurren Lagann mechas will most likely be toned down in this game.

        • monkey king

          Its “official” size is most likely based on the size in the “super spiral space, where -thought gives form-“. Since that’s the only space it has existed in.

          Everything else points to it not actually being (able to be) that size:
          -nothing that is that many lightyears across can be observed moving in real-time, the battle would’ve lasted billions of years.
          -the anti-spiral could’ve never reached for earth with his hand; his pinky would’ve destroyed the entire solar system (and much more).
          -when all of the forms started popping out of it near the end of the battle, you can clearly see TTGL isn’t millions of lightyears bigger than the rest.

          Again, thought gave form in spiral space, which means that size would only be actually possible in said space.

      • Spirit Macardi

        Yeah, it was isolated space where the Anti-Spiral could control universal laws and probability, but it was still space. And the TTGL was huge enough to toss galaxies like they were shurikens.

        I didn’t pull this out of nowhere; the official size comparisons between the mechs even states that it’s the size of several galaxies.


  • Kroz

    Tengen Toppa is playable!!!! don’t do this to me, i can’t believe im seeing him in a playable manner!!!


    • Guest

      He’s been playable for the 2nd game.

  • TTGL made me so wet you don’t even know. But I think my favorite part is still the incredibly fucking smooth movement of the UC Gundams, like fuuuuuuck that Zeta Gundam!

  • コルセット

    …and still no Diebuster. Why, Banpresto?!

    • Lynx

      Next game.

      Gunbuster needs to be done first.

    • 永次

      Because Top wo Nerae 2 is garbage.

  • ShadowDivz

    Kallen is in it? Bought.

    • 永次

      Kallen is in Super Robot Taisen Z.2 Hakaihen and Z2.2 Saisei Hen too, for PSP.

      • ShadowDivz

        I know. I have them and she’s my strongest unit.

  • Who still says the Vita has no games?! And now, to foolishly await the localization…

  • ZidanReign

    All these fucking TTGL fanboys screaming and all I’m fanboying about is the fact FMP is finally here along with the Retun of Gunbuster and WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

    • Exkaiser

      It’s a pretty fantastic UWAAAAAAH. I’m really happy about it.

    • 永次

      But voice and portrait are recycled from Alpha 3 :(

      • ZidanReign

        This is a bad thing? Considering that Gunbuster’s/SDF Macross’ original artist team has an entirely different style by now. The voice though, I wouldn’t know but Hidaka is 51…

        • 永次

          Is not “Bad”, but is not “Good”.
          I think the artist of Super Robor Taisen portraits are not the original artists, they are workers of Banpresto, like the designs of SD Gundam G Generation, Gundam Battle, Gundam vs Gundam, they are did by Tom Create, Artdink, B.B. Studio Works (Banpresto) artists…

          And, Noriko is 51, but that is nothing, Hiroya Ishimaru was 60 when he recorded the Mazinkaiser, Akira Kamiya was 50 when he recorded Raideen, Getter Robo, GetterRobo G, Shin GetterRobo, Gaiking, Macross, Daimos…

          BTW, Noriko will be in CV: Casting Voice as a character along with Yuuji Mitsuya (Combattler V).

    • Iman Linggar

      still hoping for Diebuster and ZZ on Z3.2

      without ZZ the appearance of Marida are quite confusing…

  • 9breaker

    A little sad that Char is the enemy now.

  • 永次

    Where is my fucking Zambot 3!
    – In Tengoku hen :(

  • 657rod

    Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann <3 Fanboy mode on, wonder if we get to see nipples like in the movie during the attacks.
