Bandai Namco announced that Super Robot Wars V is getting a physical and digital release for Asia with English subtitles on February 23, 2017, the same day as the Japanese release.
Here’s more about the game:
Play as original characters, and use 25th anniversary special original robots in combat!
Players can choose from several main characters to play as, such as Soji Murakumo (male) and Chitose Kisaragi (female). Or, they can use the default settings and play as one of the game’s sub-characters. Whichever character a player uses, they will begin the game with the VangRay, a prototype anti-alien mobile weapon developed by the 3rd Special Tactical Lab. This unit was built to provide the best in mobility, armaments, and firepower, despite being constructed in haste using parts and materials from existing units.
As special 25th anniversary bonus, the Grungust and Huckebein robots from 4th Super Robot wars original series will also feature in combat!
Even new players can enjoy Super Robot Wars V
Beginners Mode allows the player to challenge himself with different tasks and scenarios at a predetermined difficulty level, earning bonus Money and Tac Pts upon clearing the map. Players may switch game modes at the Intermission. Switching modes will not affect the storyline, or the robots and pilots that will make an appearance.
Starring the Great Mazinger and Mazin Emperor G!
A new Mazinger, the Mazin Emperor G, will make its first-ever appearance in the series. The unit is based off the Great Mazinger, and boasts superior capabilities. An Emperor Aureole is mounted on its back, and other weapons include the Great Smasher Punch and Emperor Blade. Its pilot is Tetsuya Tsurugi.
The game will come with the same 3 bonuses as the Japanese version!
Super Robot Wars V releases in Japan and Asia on February 23, 2017 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
