In The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Z, you’ll be busting out with super powerful special moves with the Maximum Break, where two units will team up for strong attacks. Since there will be 32 series to pick your mecha from, you might want to check out Famitsus latest update with a bunch of new screenshots.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    A minor nitpick, but since the Evangelion works featured in Z3 are the Rebuild movies, Asuka’s name should be Asuka Shikinami Langley.

    • Sato

      Edit: Nevermind, I see that it’s been changed on Famitsu as well! Fixed. Thanks for the heads up! :)

  • Kango234

    BIG O?!

    Any chance of this game coming to the U.S.?

    • Jungo

      This is the 20th odd mainstream SRW game, only 2 of which (the ones that didn’t include real series) were ever localized, back on the GBA. So no.

    • Masa

      he’s been in a few of the older games too.
      Oh and 0% chance of a US release.

    • DaiRaiOh

      The odds are an absolute 0

    • neocatzon

      The chance? As big as Big O season 3

    • 永次

      You guys are boring, no one Super Robot Taisen non-OG was released out Japan and NEVER will be released out, please, stop.

    • Luigi87

      I’m disappointed nobody worded the response as “The odds of it coming out in English are a Big 0.”

    • Kango234

      You know I got the message around the first three post…

  • Jungo

    More nitpicks: Chirico Cuvie, not Kiriko Kyuubi.

    • Sato

      Ah, thanks! Fixed. Never saw his name Romanized until now!

      • Jungo

        One of those things you’d only really know if you went out of your way to find it.

  • Seraph

    I hope they throw in Hi-Nu Gundam and
    Nightingale as secret units again. That would be awesome.

  • Derek E Nay

    I am more excited for Big-O then I am Gurren Lagann. As much GL is amazing. I am more happy to see Big-O after all these years.

    • Lynx

      Its also getting cockpit cutins which it should’ve had back in the original game.

  • Spirit Macardi

    It’s funny how Big-O ends up in this game, even though the series was far more popular here in the west than it was in Japan. Hell, I’d say that the part of Roger Smith outright belongs to Steve Blum above anyone else.

    Doubly ironic, considering Namco recently gave the finger to the creator of the Big-O manga (among others).

    • Mugen555

      Because along with Orguss, Big-O are key point of what happen in SRW z series(mainly about Paradigm City and Megadeus)

  • Counting down the days…

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    if it is taken from the movie, why is it just TTGL and not STTGL?


    • s07195

      Probably because this is two part. XD

    • Z3

      Because it did nothing other than Chou TTGDB? I would imagine it would be just a 1 ammo attack like the Arc Gurren in Z2.2. There’s also the size issue (Seriously, TTGL being a playable unit is a miracle in itself)

      • Dark Zerato

        Yeah. It would be way larger than the entire roster combined.

        • Wappuli

          Tengen Toppa already is. . .
          But the main issue with Super Tengen Toppa is that it only punched once and then did Giga Drill Breaker. So I don’t think it needs it’s own unit-slot, better just giving Tengen Toppa a move where it transforms briefly and attacks once, then transform back.(or something like that)

    • Lynx

      Because it’s not really a mech and barely did anything?

      It’s like Arc.

  • Happy Gamer

    hmmm is it just me or the mechas are not very chibi as they used to be? Looks nice actually!

    • DaiRaiOh

      It’s always been like this for the Z series. Not really anything new

  • megaten666

    Evangelion in a video game….
    When was the last time?

    • Masa

      the last two of these games i think, z and z2

      • megaten666

        Ahh, you’re right.
        What I really meant though is a whole video game dedicated to Evangelion, which is not Pachinko, by the way. And it was PSP, EVA Jo or EVA Ha, if my memory serves right.

      • Dark Zerato

        No.Z and Z2 didn’t have Eva. The last time would be SRW L.

  • Daioh

    I really wish they add “Chamber” from “Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet” in this series. He’s my favorite Mech.

    • Dark Zerato

      I also hope so. But there’s only 1 mech and 1 rival in Gargantia. So it’s hard to make it into a story like other shows.

      • DaiRaiOh

        Not really. SRW has a history of making things work with series like that, and if they can’t, they always just put them in anyway and just don’t focus much story on them at all

  • Heldronus

    No Kamina? That’s disappointing. At least I get to play as mai waifu Asuka.

    • s07195

      Kamina died in Z2. >.>

  • Ric Vazquez

    Gurren Lagann ftw!

  • s07195

    Oh god, emblems are back. XD
    Time to OP everything!
