April Fool: Robo Hello Kitty In The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Z

By Eugene . April 5, 2014 . 3:31pm


On the surface, no one would have fallen for this comically simple ruse on April Fools’. Hello Kitty, in a super robot, in The 3rd Super Robot Taisen Z? Impossible!


Even the trailer that shows her off, special rocket attack, in-game unit and text galore, quickly reveals that it’s just a hoax. While the video’s now gone from YouTube, you can check it out over at ACFun.



Most wouldn’t be fooled, right? That is, unless you happened to know that both Bandai’s Chogokin line and Hello Kitty are celebrating their 40th anniversaries this year. And that earlier this year, they really had announced a collaborative tie-up with a robot Hello Kitty (and requisite smaller pilot version).

The robot even has four different modes: Drive, Dive, Flying and… Angry. So of course it sounds completely legit to immortalize her in Super Robot Taisen. Sadly, that’s not to be.

You can check out the Chogokin site with the Hello Kitty model here, and wait for the pre-order page here though to sate your sadness.

  • It would’ve been Awesome. Never underestimate Hello Kitty and her pals! Especially in Hot-Blooded Super Robot Battles! This will be DLC, regardless. If not then, in the next SRW iteration.

    How come Japan does some easily excitable Toy commercials? It’s like some other countries stopped caring to promote what they sell.

    SRW UX had friggin HATSUNE MIKU in the game. Yes, it was a Virtual-On promo, but at this point I rule out NOTHING.

    • GH56734

      Hatsune Miku is more persistant than Lightning, that’s for sure.

    • WingsOfEternity

      Ever since Hatsune Miku got in UX , I believe even Laputa Castle in the Sky can get in

  • Ksatmata

    since 1st April, i never thought the Hello Kitty Figure is a lie
