Super Robot Taisen Goes To School


imageNamco Bandai is borrowing the campus RPG setting for a Super Robot Taisen spin-off called Super Robot Academy. After the arrival of intergalactic invaders and countless wars, an academy was created to train future leaders. This game is about them.


Ryoga, a 17 year old student, and Sakuya, his childhood friend with a giant ribbon in her hair, are the two protagonists. As students, they participate in battle simulations by installing unit data. Sounds like there could be a card robot collecting element to the system. Mecha from Virtual On Marz, Dancougar, Nadesico, Gun X Sword, and plenty of Gundam are confirmed for the game. Famitsu has pictures of the robots, which will later be a key reason why the game won’t be localized. That’s OK. There are tons of other campus RPG games to play like Mana Khemia, Class of Heroes, Final Fantasy Agitio XIII
