Super Robot Taisen, Sunrise style

By Spencer . April 2, 2008 . 8:08am

While we’re discussing robot mashup strategy RPGs, did you know Sunrise is working on their take on the Super Robot Taisen franchise? Battle of Sunrise brings together mecha from thirty years of animation production onto a single PlayStation 2 game.

Watch – Combat in Mugen no Frontier: Super Robot Wars OG Saga

By Spencer . April 2, 2008 . 6:00am

We mentioned the awesomeness of Mugen no Frontier: Super Robot Wars OG Saga before and I’m not changing my tune especially after seeing this preview video. The battle scenes look really similar to Namco X Capcom, which makes sense since Monolith Soft is acting as the developer.   Renji, Xiaomu and KOS-MOS, the trio of […]

Watch – Super Robot Taisen Scramble Commander the 2nd

By Spencer . November 26, 2007 . 6:27am

Not all of the Super Robot Taisen games involve micromanaging anime robots on a grid. Banpresto has a real time strategy Super Robot Taisen series too. Earlier this month Super Robot Taisen Scramble Commander the 2nd slipped into stores. The game features a manual mode, which lets you pilot mecha from Gundam Wing, RahXephon and […]

Banpresto absorbed by Namco Bandai

By Spencer . November 9, 2007 . 9:21am

In 2006 Namco Bandai bought Banpresto as a subsidiary. For over a year Namco Bandai allowed Banpresto to do their thing even though they were wholly owned by Namco Bandai. That is about to change because the company who brought us Super Robot Taisen and Ar Tonelico is going to be dissolved into Namco Bandai […]

More robots, more Super Robot Taisen

By Spencer . July 31, 2007 . 6:44pm

Barely a month has passed since Super Robot Taisen: Original Generations appeared on the Playstation 2, but that didn’t stop Banpresto from lifting the curtain on a follow up. Due out this winter is Super Robot Taisen: Original Generations Gaiden, which includes a free battle mode. Of course this is only for Japan, until some […]

By Spencer . March 28, 2007 . 6:17pm

Later this summer Banpresto is going to release Super Robot Taisen Original Generation. Instead of bringing Gundam and Macross to the battle arena the Original Generation series has “original” mecha. Some of the robots are clearly inspired by popular robots, but none of the giant robots in this trailer look like Voltron. While the Super […]

Robots galore in Super Robot Taisen W

By Spencer . March 4, 2007 . 7:30pm

  It’s Voltron (alright technically Go Lion)! Too bad you don’t get Voltron in your group right away in Super Robot Taisen W. I’ve only sunk a little time playing the game and you don’t get Voltron right away. Early in the game your ship is under attack and you’re hopelessly outnumbered by Eva-like monsters. […]

Watch: More Super Robot Taisen W footage

By Spencer . February 4, 2007 . 12:08pm

More sweet Super Robot Taisen footage, but this time we can see gameplay and not just flashes of Voltron. The DS looks like it is going to make setting up battle plans easier since you can drag and drop your units. When you pre-order the game in Japan you get a tiny Super Robot Taisen […]
