Super Hero Generation Is Basically Super Robot Wars With Ultraman And Kamen Rider

By Spencer . August 7, 2014 . 11:54pm

Bandai Namco is bringing over the usual crossover trio – Ultraman, Kamen Rider, and Gundam – for Super Hero Generation. Instead of another dungeon RPG, these iconic characters are in a strategy RPG that bears resemblance to the Super Robot Wars series. Watch the original Ultraman, Kamen Rider Fourze, and Unicorn Gundam fight kaiju in the latest trailer for the game.



Two versions of Super Hero Generation will be available on October 23. A regular game will cost 7,600 yen on PlayStation 3 and 6,640 yen on Vita. A Special Sound Edition which has 20 TV show themes costs 10,450 yen on PS3 and 9,500 yen on Vita. Bandai Namco did something similar with J-Stars Victory Vs. which also had a theme song edition and a regular game.

    despite having never watched any of those three shows, this game looks amazing

  • DaiRaiOh

    Although it looks a lot more SD Gundam G Gen than SRW to be honest. And by a lot, I mean they’re directly using their G Gen style for this game almost entirely by the looks of it

    • kuroneko

      ^ THIS, you’re absolutely right! The movie used for the battle are really improved, but for the rest of the game, they have copied and pasted the style from G Generation World

      • Ariobimo Wicaksono

        Well of course it look similar, this game is made by the G Gen staff.

        • Fefen Ardiansyah

          its not only “look” similar, the system is also similar
          and i like it

    • HentaRobot

      They even used the break system from the G Gen series lol

    • 永次

      This. And, BTW, SD Gundam is older than Super Robot Taisen.

      • DaiRaiOh

        Okay? It’s G Gen being talked about anyway which is newer. Especially this style of it

        • 永次


      • Tom_Phoenix

        That depends if we’re talking about SD Gundam in general or specifically about G Gen. If the former, then sure. But if the latter, then that is actually untrue.

        G Gen got its start in 1996 with a series of mini-games for the Super Famicom’s SuFami Turbo add-on. Meanwhile, Banpresto released the first SRW games in 1991 (for the Game Boy and Famicom).

        • 永次

          I know it very well, I played it in Super Famicon when was released.

  • HentaRobot

    Need more Showa Riders. Otherwise it looks like RX will be the only Rider I will use.

  • Abend

    screw srw gimme dis now

  • Don

    hey spencer, you’re comparing this to the wrong SRPG.. insteaad of SRW its more akin to SD gundam G Gen over world.. just saying

    • Fefen Ardiansyah

      i agree, its A LOT like G gen world/ over world

  • 無尽合体ブランタコブスキ

    where’s kabuto? no kabuto no buy

  • greeeed

    I guess first game with gundam and Freedom was success so they end up adding more Gundams….
    (they even add Gundam Age-2)

  • Yan Zhao

    No Super Sentai? What a waste,

    • Daigo Madoka

      While Sentai and Godzilla had appeared in the sport games (and some of the earlier games I believe) they weren’t the main stays of the Compati Hero series, which this game is counted as being.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Gotta be honest, saw the image for this article and thought it was Servo from Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad XD;

  • Fate

    okay, so how do they explain ultra crusaders who are the biggest being the same size as gundams who are around 18m each and Riders who are all human sized except for J????

    • Daigo Madoka

      The Compati Hero series skirts around this issue by making them similar in terms of size. There’s some exceptions like giant sized enemies in Lost Heroes, but for the most part in this game they’re all sized close to each other in order to interact and stuff.
